Gas Cook Tops

You have several options in the installations and billing methods when combining The Teal System and Gas Cook Tops in your development. This paper is designed to inform your team of the options in an attempted to help better serve your needs.

As with all options there will be pluses and minuses that will need to be weighted before the final decision.

Option I"

Notes on Single Meter – Central Loop gas system

  1. Using single meter central loop you will NOT receive any Gas Company rebates
  2. When using the master metered central gas loop option your tenet will NOT receive a Gas Company bill reducing there over all utility cost by approximately $14.00 per month meter fee.
  3. Since there will be a separate master meter for cook tops the easiest method is to RUB the cost, estimate costs of $2.00 to $3.00 per month added to the gas usage and billed on their water bill.
  4. Although the Gas Company will normally pay for all gas piping cost up to each individual meter, the developer pays for each home run line to each unit, we believe the deduct for the piping from each meter to each unit will more than offset the central loop piping. Creating additional construction savings.
