Pond and Lake Applications Burying pipe underground isn’t the only way if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Kansas City. While it may seem a tad odd that your pond could be helping to heat and cool your home, ponds and lakes are good sources when it comes to capturing geothermal energy. These geothermal loops are closed loop systems like the others we offer, and are simply placed near the bottom of the pond or lake. Much like the stability of ground temperatures, pond and lake temperatures are very consistent at the bottom. The materials used for pond and lake applications are also basically identical, and there are only a few differences when it comes to length and configuration. Requirements A 1/2 to 3/4 acre, 8-foot-deep body of water is usually the regular size needed for an average home. Pond and lake geothermal systems can be less pricey than the conventional two earth loop options as well. As with a lot of heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops will depend on your specific situation, proper geothermal loop design, as well as the size of your pond or lake and its depth. The team at Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is trained and has the experience to provide you with an estimate once we have taken a look to decide if your pond is suitable to house a geothermal system. Once it’s certain that your pond is able to harness geothermal energy, we will create a custom design and install a pond system that not only provides you with geothermal heating and cooling, but may actually provide increased performance and could help you save on installation costs. Geothermal pond loops are one of the most sensible applications of geothermal systems, so if you’d like to learn more about the possibility of adding one of these systems to your Kansas City home, the team at Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing would be happy to help.
