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.
Many states allow multifamily owners to recover residential energy costs from their HVAC system.
Minol can provide a regulatory review, submetering proposal and recovery recommendations. Contact Phil Neeves, Minol’s National Director of Multifamily Solutions, for more information.
