Putting pipe below the surface isn’t the only solution if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Nashville. Ponds and lakes are ideal possibilities for heating and cooling your home.
These systems are closed-loop, like the options we install, but we place them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like below-ground, pond and lake temperatures are incredibly even at the bottom.
How Large Does My Pond or Lake Need to Be?
For the average home, you’ll need a 1/2- to ¾-acre body of water that’s at least 8 feet deep.
A pond or lake system can be less pricey than traditional two-earth loop models. As with most heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your individual situation, appropriate design, as well as the size and depth of your body of water.
Our experienced team at Donelson Air Service Experts can determine if your pond is a match for a geothermal system. We’ll supply you with a no-cost quote once we’ve taken a look—and we’ll make a design just for your home.
