Benefits of Sub-Metering

With the ever-rising cost of water and sewage, it’s becoming more and more difficult to accurately estimate or cover the usage costs in multi-family communities. Water sub-metering systems allow you, as a multi-unit property owner or manager, to know exactly how much water each resident uses. This comes with incredible benefits, including:

  • Encourages water conservation when residents know they will pay for what they use. Conservation results from accountability
  • Early leak detection which results in lower water bills and may prevent costly damage
  • Puts residents in direct charge of paying their utility costs to free up your cash flow
  • May help reduce the need to increase rent or HOA fees with greater control over water costs
  • Reduces the time breaking down water usage costs per resident

How Much Can You Save From Sub-Metering?

Sub-metering is one of those choices that requires an initial upfront investment but pays you back over time. Unlike an energy-efficient appliance, the sub-meter itself is not a utility saver. However, its inclusion at a property changes tenant behavior, resulting in money savings over time. When users see how much they save by making wise decisions for water consumption, they’re eager to try to save even more. In turn, property owners are no longer on the hook to make up the difference between tenants’ flat rate charges and what is used. While total savings will depend on the size of the property and how many units there are, the potential utility consumption savings can be anywhere from 5% to as much as 20%.
