Gas Submetering

Our gas submeters are compact and can be easily installed indoors or outdoors to meet your building requirements. Our meters communicate over Wi-Fi to provide a cost-effective and technologically advanced gas submetering system for your building. Our gas meters measure the volume of gas consumed by each unit so residents pay for their individually metered consumption.

Vacant Cost Recovery

There’s a lot happening during the resident moving process and sometimes they forget to put utilities in their name or take them out prematurely. With Vacant Cost Recovery, a part of our Expense Management service, we constantly monitor the transfer of utilities into, and out of, the resident’s name. When we catch a mistake, we generate a resident invoice and ensure the property recovers those charges. 

Electric Submetering

Our electric submeters are robust and communicate over Wi-Fi to provide a reliable and cost-effective electric submetering system for your building. Our flush-mount and surface-mount panels can be installed at the breaker panel in each unit or our preassembled and preprogrammed Multiple Meter Units (MMUs) can be installed at central distribution panels.

The UMS Advantage

UMS has been serving the multifamily housing industry for over 15 years. We handle all types of installations and excel at maintaining submetering systems long after installation is complete. Our onboarding process is reliable, and we always provide personalized training and a dedicated agent to support your team. Join the thousands of others who trust UMS to meet their resident billing, bill payment, and submetering needs.

Mid Continent Management Corp

“I have enjoyed working with UMS for over 10 years. I have implemented RUBS programs and individually metered programs in multifamily units in the Twins Cities metro area and in the Dallas metroplex. Their sales and account support team are very responsive, and their website makes reporting and high level (C-Suite) monitoring of a large portfolio an easy task. I highly recommend UMS for any utility billing program!”

Northgate Apartments

We work closely with UMS to control our water costs. UMS was the perfect match in regards to technology and install flexibility that allowed a water submeter install even though we have multiple points of entry into each unit. I would recommend UMS to anyone.
