Benefits of Submetering
Typically, a multi-residential building has one main or central meter that supplies the entire building’s utility consumption. This setup can lead to unfair energy cost allocation for tenants. A user-pay system like submetering allows you to pay for what you use, while also being better for the environment.
- You are billed based on your usage within your suite. Each suite comes equipped with their own meters, which operate independently from other suites.
- Meters are read remotely, eliminating the need for human meter readers. Previously, the way to calculate consumption was to send an employee to manually read all meters in a building or complex. Advances in meter technology now allows for daily remote readings, ensuring that your privacy to your suite is secure.
- Great for the environment. QMC submeters are equipped with advanced algorithms that can detect if your suite has a leak, or if you accidentally left your bathroom faucet on. This helps you save on your utility bills, as well as helping you reduce your overall utility consumption.
