Energy For Housing Developments
Are you a rural housing developer? Due to the growing demand for new housing developments in rural areas, we know that connecting to mains gas is not always achievable or financially viable. Calor gas provides an invaluable alternative. Less cost to install than mains gas and far less hassle than renewables. It’s the simple, flexible answer to off-grid housing.
We'll take care of it! You’ve got enough to think about without energy supply hassles. That’s why when you work with Calor, you can expect dedicated support, an unrivalled scale and expertise.
Building in the benefits of Calor
Benefits to you
Off-grid heating solution
If your next housing development is located in a rural area, it may be a good time to consider Calor gas. Reduce your cost per plot and the properties’ SAP ratings; and install discreet underground storage to protect the estate’s aesthetics.
Quicker turnaround, hassle free
Unlike air source heat pumps and oil, LPG fits perfectly within standard design templates, so you don’t need to spend time and money redesigning properties. You also eliminate the need to install additional green technologies, as LPG has low SAP ratings.
We'll also manage the LPG installation project from start to finish, giving you peace of mind.
If you're concerned about the look of your rural housing development, our highly experienced engineers have the capability to hide your gas tanks underground, in order to create an aesthetically pleasing environment for your prospective buyers.
Benefits for prospective buyers
Common with rural developments, homeowners can share a communal LPG bulk tank, with the gas distributed through a network of pipes – just like mains gas. Tanks can be hidden underground, so it feels like you’re on mains gas
Our clever automatic top-up technology tells us when the site is running low so there's no worry about ordering gas. Our national network of delivery depots and the largest LPG tanker fleet means we'll always be able to deliver.
There’s more to LPG than just heating and hot water. It can also fuel a range of household appliances, including LPG tumble dryers, fixed fires, and BBQs (all of which can be run off the main supply if required) – plus for cooking it gives you a real flame for instant and controllable heat and the reassurance of an additional fuel other than electricity in case of a power cut.
