We will work with you one on one to ensure you get the best equipment for your project. We will also manage your project from system design, to installation, to maintenance and ongoing service. We basically handle everything so you don’t have to. Some of the benefits provided by submetering systems include conservation, better leak detection, less administrative work, reduced operating expenses, improved property value and stabilized rents. At Multifamily Utility we sell, install, read and service non-proprietary meter systems and electronics components from some of the leading manufactures in the world such as Elster, Master Meter, IMS, Hexagram, Neptune, Wellspring and Norgas. By working with these industry leading manufactures we are able to design submetering systems for just about any situation. If your property has space constraints or there are other issues that make it unable to be submetered, you can take advantage of our customized Ratio Utility Billing Systems (RUBS). RUBS can be utilities for almost all utilities including water, wastewater, electric, gas and trash. And just like a regular submetering system, customized Ratio Utility Billing Systems also encourage conservation. The one big difference is with a customized Ratio Utility Billing System conservation is promoted throughout the community as a whole. With Submetering systems conservation is done more so on an individual basis. RUBS also use a pre calculated formula when determining your monthly utility bill which will help you increase utility cost recovery and save even more money. Ratio Utility Billing Systems are without a doubt the best alternative to submetering.
