Geothermal Pond and Lake Applications
Burying pipe underground isn’t the only route if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Brampton. While it may seem a tad odd that your pond could be helping to heat and cool your home, ponds and lakes are fantastic sources when it comes to harnessing geothermal energy.
These geothermal loops are closed loop systems like the others we put in, and are just positioned near the bottom of the pond or lake. Much like the evenness of ground temperatures, pond and lake temperatures are very constant at the bottom. The materials utilized for pond and lake applications are also basically equal, and there are only a handful of differences when it comes to length and configuration.
- A 1/2 to 3/4 acre, 8-foot-deep body of water is usually the base size needed for an average home.
- Pond and lake geothermal systems may be less expensive than the conventional two earth loop options as well. As with many heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops will be decided on your unique situation, proper geothermal loop design, as well as the size of your pond or lake and its depth. The team at Peel Heating & Air Conditioning is trained and has the experience to offer you an estimate once we have taken a look to determine if your pond is appropriate to house a geothermal system.
- Once it’s certain that your pond is able to harness geothermal energy, we will strategically design and install a pond system that not only give you geothermal heating and cooling, but could actually provide improved 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 find out more about the possibility of adding one of these systems to your Brampton home, the experts at Peel Heating & Air Conditioning would be happy to help.
