Construction heat refers to the use of natural gas prior to initial installation inspections, either during construction or finishing stages, and prior to homeowner occupancy. It includes the inspection of an appliance approved for construction heat as outlined by manufacturer’s certified installation instructions, local code, Technical Standards & Safety Authority (TSSA) requirements, and Enbridge Gas policy.
