When you need temporary heat for a commercial construction site, choose natural gas over propane or other fuels to enjoy:
Fewer equipment breakdowns and less maintenance.
Peace of mind with a safe, clean-burning fuel.
Lower operating costs and no guessing - you pay only for the fuel you use.
A convenient, continuous fuel supply with no tank clutter or on-site refilling.
Two basic steps: How to plan for temporary heat
If you will need temporary heat for a commercial construction site during winter, you'll need to:
Have your site ready by Nov. 1 and send your application by Oct. 15. This will help to ensure that we can install your service line in time so your building crew stays warm. Out-of-season charges apply Nov. 1 through Mar. 31.
Have a place for us to hang the meter set. In order for us to be able to hang the meter set, the following must be met:
All exterior walls must be framed. If the permanent meter location is not ready, you will need to construct a temporary wall for the meter set. (See diagram below)
Elevated pressure may not be available. Please check with us for approval.
Your site must be 6" to final grade.
Guidelines for building a temporary wall
NOTE: Temporary wall must be perpendicular to permanent wall.
