Planning a new build project or rural home renovation



When you’re planning a new build project or a rural home renovation, it can be a very exciting time. However, there are a number of things you will need to consider, including how you intend to heat your home and provide energy for cooking. When your home is off the mains grid that becomes even more important.

Calor gas can offer you all of the convenience of a mains gas supply whilst saving you money and reducing your overall energy consumption. They specialise in supplying energy to off-grid homes, so you can rest assured you’re in safe hands.

LPG — Greener and cleaner

Liquid petroleum gas has the lowest carbon emissions of all fossil fuels, burning with a clean, instant and controllable flame which is ideal for cooking. In fact, a majority of chefs prefer cooking on LPG to regular gas. LPG emits 20% less CO2 than heating oil and can help to heat your home more efficiently than most other methods of heating.


With a new build or home renovation, you’re in an ideal situation for planning a new LPG installation. You can have your tank installed discreetly underground, overground or even in a space-saving format using a four-cylinder installation for smaller properties.

Save money with renewable energy

If you opt for the Daikin Altherma hybrid air source heat pump and boiler, you’ll be able to make your home greener and reduce energy costs further. The system utilises a combination of both gas and electricity in order to provide heating using whichever method will be most efficient according to the outdoor temperature, saving you money at all times.

You can even enrol your Daikin Altherma system in the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme — a government scheme which will pay 7.3p/kWH for each unit of renewable energy produced by your system. In short, the government will pay you for all of the excess energy you produce and sell back to the grid — often in excess of £600 per annum for 7 years.
