Embedding pipe below the surface isn’t the only solution if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Pierre. Ponds and lakes are fantastic choices for heating and cooling your home.
These systems are closed-loop, like the others we install, but we put them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like underground, pond and lake temperatures are very consistent 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 costly than common two-earth loop options. As with a lot of heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your individual situation, professional design, as well as the size and depth of your pond.
Our skilled team at Peitz Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can confirm if your pond is a match for a geothermal system. We’ll provide you with a free quote once we’ve taken a look—and we’ll build a design just for your home.
