    Vacant Cost Recovery

    There’s a lot happening when a resident moves into their apartment and sometimes they forget to put the utilities in their name. Unmonitored, it can be months before this error is caught and corrected. With Vacant Cost Recovery, UMS monitors for this and provides the property with a pdf invoice of the misapplied charges so you can easily post the charges to the resident ledger for a full recovery.

    Water Submetering

    We specialize in water submetering and provide metering solutions for all plumbing setups. We offer full capture solutions for buildings with a central boiler or hot water heater in each unit, point of use solutions for buildings with stacked riser design with multiple entry points, and larger meters for commercial use. Our advanced wireless submetering solutions ensure a seamless and cost-effective solution for all your water submetering needs.

    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 every building type. Our gas meters measure the volume of gas consumed by each unit so residents pay for their individually metered consumption.

    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.

    “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!”
