Austin, Texas (PRWEB) September 9, 2008
HBH Gas Systems has announced the planned installation of a Central Propane Gas Distribution System to fuel the new Rocky Creek Ranch community just west of Austin, Texas. The development is located in an area that lacks reasonable access to natural gas infrastructure. Extending the natural gas infrastructure to the site was not feasible due to financial and logistical constraints. Knowing that their homeowners would greatly prefer dual-fuels over all-electric homes, the developers of Rocky Creek Ranch turned to HBH Gas Systems to implement a Central Gas System.
The Central Gas System that HBH Gas Systems will bring to Rocky Creek Ranch will provide each home in the community with individually metered gas from a single, centralized propane tank. A Central Gas System provides gas that is piped underground to the homes and facilities from a centralized tank. It is metered and billed in a manner identical to a natural gas system.
Phase 1 of Rocky Creek Ranch consists of 154 lots. At final buildout, the development will include 396 lots spanning 468 acres. The community's gas homes are expected to average over 3,500 square feet and most are in the $400,000 range. High-efficiency gas appliances that will be installed in the homes at Rocky Creek Ranch include on-demand tankless water heaters, gas furnaces, kitchen appliances, outdoor gas stubs for barbecue grills or full outdoor kitchens, among many more gas-fueled options that are made possible by the Central Gas System. The system at Rocky Creek further illustrates the scalability and diversity of applications that are hallmarks of an HBH Gas System.
In general, homeowners greatly prefer homes with gas fuel because gas appliances are more efficient and more comfortable. Builders prefer building in communities with underground piped, metered gas because, in addition to homeowner preference, they are able to offer more appliance upgrades and additional amenities like pool heaters, outdoor kitchens and fire pits, and impactful accents like gas lamps. Developers who implement Central Gas Systems from HBH Gas Systems can steer their off-grid developments away from the inefficient, carbon-heavy electric grid toward more sustainable development fueled by gas. Both builders and developers enjoy the tremendous marketing advantages of offering gas fuel where it is otherwise not available.
