QMC - Building Intelligence with Submetering Solutions

Integrated Submetering

thermal meters

Otherwise known as BTU meters, thermal energy meters are used to measure energy from hydronic-based heating and cooling systems.

Thermal meters can be used for multi-tenant residential applications or the monitoring of central plant systems.

understanding thermal metering

Thermal energy metering has been utilitized in Europe for decades, but has only recently become prevalent in Canada. Measurement Canada is now in the process of regulating thermal metering for the Canadian market. QMC can expertly provide metering to meet these upcoming standards. 

Further, we are an accredited testing and verification service provider.  In order to attain better understanding thermal metering, customers require better expertise and their utilities require better transparency.

complete solution

QMC will design and deploy an automated thermal meter system for integration into your BAS or EMS. We can also provide this on an M-Bus communications network using GWF Thermal Metering Technology. The meters will comply with the thermal metering standard EN-1434 to ensure all meter reads are accurate and reliable.

what are thermal meters?

A simple explanation of thermal meters are that they measure the energy used to heat or cool a room. They perform this task by measuring the temperature of a flowing gas or liquid before and after it enters a space.
