The homes at Highwood, Croy use Calor Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) – a clean, sustainable and modern fuel that offers the same easy way of running your home as mains gas.
Calor Gas is the appointed supplier of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) for your new Scotia home. LPG has a lower SAP rating** than either electricity or oil, so will help to improve the overall energy rating of your new home.
If you are not used to LPG you may have a few questions and we have answered some of those most frequently asked here.
Q: WHO IS CALOR GAS?
A: Many of the two million homes and 200,000 businesses located off the mains grid in rural Britain use LPG and Calor Gas is currently the leading supplier. The company has the UK’s largest fleet of LPG delivery vehicles.
Q: HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH FUEL I AM USING?
A: Your home is fitted with a meter to record and monitor the amount of fuel being used in your property. Your bill will be based on these amounts.
Q: HOW CAN I WORK OUT WHAT I AM SPENDING ON FUEL?
A: The cost is 38.5p +VAT per litre with an additional quarterly standing charge of £15.OO +VAT.
Q: WHERE IS THE LPG STORED?
A: There will be a central storage location that houses fuel for all the homes on the development.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF THE LPG RUNS OUT?
A: Calor LPG storage tanks are fitted with a system that automatically reorders more fuel for you when it is required. The storage level is maintained at a minimum of 25% so you will never run out.
Q: HOW DO I GET MORE GAS DELIVERED?
A: When the central tanks here need to be refilled, and the fuel has been automatically reordered, the Calor LPG tanker will simply come and top them up. As the tanks are in a public area, it is not necessary for a homeowner to be around to accept the delivery.
Q: ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS?
A: If you have any further questions or need more information contact 03457 661111 or visit calor.co.uk
