Heat your construction site with natural gas. It saves money, time, resources and, best of all, it's easy.
With natural gas construction heating, you save time and effort by avoiding the inconvenience of scheduling propane deliveries and continually moving propane tanks back and forth, floor to floor, to heat your work site. No more lost time, manpower or money.
When you apply for your permanent natural gas service line, let us know that you would like to take advantage of natural gas for your construction heaters.
Natural gas construction heating:
- Natural gas costs less than propane.
- You pay only for what you use.
- No time lost scheduling propane deliveries.
- No time spent moving propane tanks.
- Natural gas is always available.
Assures a Better Allocation of Resources
- Cranes can be used for construction, not moving propane tanks.
- Resources aren't needed to monitor fuel usage.
- Flexible hosing goes anywhere on site from the utility meter.
Here's How It Works
Washington Gas provides permanent underground gas service and a meter at a specified location on your job site. You or your subcontractor will utilize flexible hoses, gas laterals or risers (either temporary or those to be used for the permanent gas loads) inside the building. The hoses connect to your portable heaters, for temporary heat wherever and whenever you need it. Because gas is always available—instantly ready any time of day or night—monitoring your fuel supply isn’t required.
To assure that Washington Gas meets your construction heating needs, contact us well in advance to apply for your permanent gas service line, allowing sufficient time to install the service. If you are renovating an old building that has an existing riser in place, you may be able to use the existing riser during construction, so we recommend contacting us before having the riser removed. We’re ready to help you plan ahead so you get the full benefits of natural gas heating during construction.
