As a building owner, you pay three different utility bills each month: water, gas, and electric. Unfortunately, since these bills only come once a month, they do not give you all of the information you require to run your buildings most effectively. However, real-time energy data can show you the consumption trends (week by week, day by day, or even hour by hour) and alert you if there are any irregularities.
Advantages of Monitoring Your Water Meters
1. Make Sure Your Water Bills Are Correct
2. Prevent Flooding
Helpful Hint: Are you maintaining your cooling towers and cleaning your HVAC properly? Proper care could make your equipment last up to eight times longer.
Advantages of Monitoring Your Gas Meters
1. Monitor Your Heat Use
Helpful Hint: Gas submeter alerts can also help you avoid coincident runs during the summer, where the chiller and boiler may actually be running at the same time. You’d be surprised how many boilers you could find running heat during the summer!
2. Maintain Energy Efficiency
3. Bill Your Tenants Fairly
