Pond and Lake Applications Burying pipe underground isn’t the only route if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Oklahoma City. While it may seem a little odd that your pond could be helping to heat and cool your home, ponds and lakes are fantastic options when it comes to capturing geothermal energy. These geothermal loops are closed loop systems like the others we install, and are merely placed near the bottom of the pond or lake. Much like the evenness of ground temperatures, pond and lake temperatures are very consistent at the bottom. The materials utilized for pond and lake applications are also nearly identical, and there are only a couple differences when it comes to length and configuration. Requirements A 1/2 to 3/4 acre, 8-foot-deep body of water is typically the base size needed for an average home. Pond and lake geothermal systems may be less costly than the conventional two earth loop options as well.

The team at Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is qualified and has the experience to offer you an estimate once we have taken a look to decide if your pond is fit to house a geothermal system.
