Comprehensive submetering approach leads to cost savings for owners of master-metered multi-family buildings; utility costs lowered through a combination of consumption reporting and leak detection
BENSALEM, Pa. - H(2)O Degree, manufacturer of two-way wireless mesh submetering systems for tenant billing, leak detection, utility conservation and building automation system integration in multi-family facilities, announces the availability of its latest submetering system designed for multi-family apartment complexes. The H(2)O Degree system provides both property management and tenants with interactive online tools that can dramatically reduce water consumption and improve property profitability. Utilizing the system, managers of master-metered facilities now have the ability to measure and bill individual unit tenants for their actual water usage and for the energy required to provide hot water. Facilities managers also receive regular usage data that can pinpoint water leak problems that result in excess water consumption.
A submetering installation at Cheverly Crossing, a 60-unit apartment building in Hyattsville, Maryland, offers a case study on the success of the H(2)O Degree system. Results of the study document how the landlord was able to cut water utility expenses at the multi-family apartment building by more than half.
H(2)O Degree's comprehensive submetering system tracks water, electric, gas and BTUs. The company's differentiating technologies include two-way wireless mesh submetering, Green Thermostats and daily water meter and leak-detection reporting. The system allows for both visualization and control. Landlords can access energy dashboards to view consumption of individual tenants in order to bill them according to usage, as well as leak reports that enable them to proactively prevent wasted water.
