Putting pipe below the surface isn’t the only solution if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Grand Island. Ponds and lakes are fantastic possibilities for heating and cooling your home.
These products are closed-loop, like the models we install, but we station them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like underground, pond and lake temperatures are extremely consistent at the bottom.
How Large Does My Pond or Lake Need to Be?
For a standard 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 expensive than conventional 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 lake.
Our skilled team at McElroy Service Experts can confirm if your pond is a match for a geothermal system. We’ll give you a free quote once we’ve checked out your pond—and we’ll build a design just for your home.
