Meter Maintenance and Compliance
Multifamily Utility Company uses reliable, high quality precision products from the industry’s leading manufacturers of submetering hardware. No matter the quality, all meters need maintenance to ensure accuracy for the benefit of both the resident and the owner. Our qualified and experienced technicians understand that quality assurance and control are the keys to a successful submetering system.
A valuable submetering system solution Multifamily Utility Company offers is a meter maintenance package. A meter maintenance package will cover any labor costs during the duration of the system’s life.

With our relationships with various state and local regulatory departments we are able to see what is required to ensure your meters are in compliance. With our maintenance and compliance programs Multifamily Utility Company is consistently delivering added-value to both property owners and residents. Through continuous maintenance and monitoring of current and new regulations, Multifamily Utility Company ensures our systems are accurate and compliant.
