Utility Billing Program Goals

When choosing the right billing method for your multifamily community, there are three key factors to consider: 

  1. Do I want to measure individual usage or allocate expenses across the community?
  2. What is my expense recovery goal?
  3. What is allowed within city and state regulatory guidelines?

Reducing consumption and expense is something we can all do more of together!

Central Boiler Systems and Recapturing Gas Costs

Are you installing a central boiler system? If yes, each unit must have a single entry point for both cold water and hot water with shut off valves. If you are not installing a central system, you will only need a single meter for each unit. Make sure the meter is easily accessible. Typically, next to or above the hot water tank is the best location for optimal performance. If you are using gas to heat the boiler, make sure you meter everything so you can recapture gas costs associated with the water systems.
