What is a Sub-meter System?
A submetering system
is a system that allows you as the landlord or property manager to assign to each tenant his or her share of the utilities consumed in the building. Landlords like to use submetering systems because they reduce tenant waste and encourage conservation.
Further, they take a great deal of the hassle out of managing a property as you will no longer have to try to collect utility payments from tenants. At the same time, tenants prefer to rent in a building where electric and other utility submetering is practiced, as it allows them to control their utility costs and is a fair way of apportioning these costs out to the various tenants.
However, due to their construction and the manner in which they operate, submetering systems should not be installed by an amateur. Any time you are working with utilities there is an inherent risk of damage to property or personal injury (or worse) should something go wrong. For this reason, prudent property owners elect to have a licensed professional install or service their sub-metering equipment.
Other Reasons to Use a Licensed Missouri Contractor for Your Sub-metering Needs
When considering submetering solutions, you need to consider the cost of energy, the savings associated with making each tenant responsible for his or her utility consumption
, and the headaches it will save you by allowing each tenant to work directly with a utility company to arrange payment for his or her own usage of the utilities.
In addition, you should consider the peace of mind that you will gain by entrusting your submetering needs to a licensed professional instead of trying to use a fly-by-night “plumber” to install or monitor your equipment. When you consider all the complications that can arise when you use inferior contractors, the outcome is clear: hiring a certified professional is always worth it.
Consider the issue of requiring a license. By and large, we as a society require licensing of those professions whose skills are crucial to our infrastructure and our way of life. This is because it is so important that these skills be held to a minimum standard of competence that we elect to have entire professions monitored to ensure that those who hold a license are truly skilled in what they do.
If you hire the first person you run across who calls himself or herself a “plumber” you could be setting yourself up for some serious problems.
Unfortunately, anyone can claim to hold a license, and if you don’t know how to perform the proper background checks you may never realize that the person who is working on your submetering system really has very little skills in the field at all.
We take all the guess work out of it for you. By maintaining a database of truly certified and qualified professionals, we can ensure that when we send someone to you, you will find that person to be every bit as skilled and competent as you would expect. We only work with professionals who have the proper licensing and credentials, and who have demonstrated and continue to demonstrate true competence in their profession.
You don’t have to worry about who will show up when you call Plumbers 911. No matter where you are, no matter what the job you have, we have someone who is truly qualified to get it done right. You can just sit back, relax, and let us handle the rest.
