Embedding pipe below ground isn’t the only option if you’re considering geothermal energy in Hilton Head Island. Ponds and lakes are fantastic choices when it comes to heating and cooling your home.
These products are closed-loop, like the others we install, but we station 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 geothermal pond or lake system can be less costly than traditional two-earth loop options. As with a lot of heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your distinct circumstances, appropriate design, as well as the size and depth of your lake.
Our experienced team at Epperson Service Experts 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.
