FlowRite Submetering’s founders have 14 years of experience in submetering, installation and maintenance. We hold in depth knowledge about all aspects of submetering. We take pride in ensuring that each client receives a tailored package that allows them to successfully monitor the utilities in their buildings.
No two properties or property managers are exactly alike. Let Flow Rite assess your needs and provide you with a tailored package that will work for you.
Our assessment is thorough. We take into account the level of complexity you need to improve your utility measurement and billing processes.
Our company can assist you, whether you need to add submetering to a small residential community with only a few units, or you need to install a complex system that can monitor a large commercial property with many units. FlowRite Submetering has expertise in both commercial and residential submetering.
"Installing a submetering system allows a property manager... to bill tenants individually for their share of the utilities. Submetering can be installed for all kinds of utilities, including water, gas, and electricity."
Allow us to help you professionally monitor utility usage reports or for your tenants. This form of energy management is professional, efficient, and puts the best foot forward in your relationship with your tenants, along with saving you time and money.
Our trained submetering technicians will install or retrofit the ideal submetering system for your buildings, and they will do it right. If your system installation requires licensed electricians or plumbers to be involved, we can work with the subcontractor of your choice. We can provide one of our outstanding partners as well. We make sure you get the best service and the best possible outcome.
When you contact our office and request an evaluation, we will do a thorough assessment of your property. A trained technician will inspect the equipment you currently have installed. We will take into account the size of your property, and whether you need to monitor multiple properties.
Once we have assessed your needs, we will make recommendations on which type of submetering system to install. There are multiple varieties available based on what utility you want to monitor, the number of units that will be included, how many features you would like included, and whether you prefer a more basic or more complex system.
Once you select your system, we will carefully plan out a timeline for installation of your new submetering system. We have never run into an installation request we could not handle! Our team of experts is ready to provide you with the solutions you’ve needed – to save you time, money and effort.
It is critically important to ensure your submetering equipment is maintained appropriately. That’s one reason it’s so critical to choose carefully who performs your installation. Don’t select a company that will simply install your equipment and then rely on you to report issues that may arise.
At Flow Rite, we take full responsibility for monitoring your submetering system. Your maintenance is included with your contract, and based on which package you select, either quarterly or monthly maintenance. Not only do we collect data through a remote system, we watch for anomalies in data that can indicate errors or potential issues with your equipment. We inspect your equipment regularly, checking your system thoroughly for any signs of malfunction, damage or other problems that can arise. Most maintenance of your system is included with the cost of your contract.
Choose Flow Rite to manage your system to ensure a trained technician, who understands the ins and outs of the technology of your system, is handling all your maintenance, repairs and upgrades. “Twenty years ago, refrigerators did one thing – cool their contents. Today, they have digital temperature controls, lights, ice and water dispensers, door open alerts, power surge alerts, and some even have flat panel screens installed. New submetering equipment requires technical and electrical expertise. It saves even more time for landlords and building owners thanks to its more advanced capabilities. Make sure you have the right company in your corner to ensure you get the most out of your system.” (owner quote)
Like other major property changes and updates, installation of submetering requires appropriate permits and inspections. FlowRite Submetering will ensure that the correct permits are acquired, taking that task off your list. We will schedule and manage all inspections, and serve as a liaison for any government agencies that require communication or paperwork throughout the process.

Submeters have proven to save more and provide a greater return on investment among many other energy savings investments. Typically, energy saving investments take 3 years or more to provide a return. Submetering will offer your multi-unit facility a positive return in under three years, and will save you for years to come. The cost of submetering units are lowering as technology advances and as more competitors offer affordable units. This is an excellent time to move to a new way of measuring, reporting and charging your tenants for the utilities they consume each day.
You have lots of choices when selecting your submetering unit and panel. Some submetering units will let you individually bill your tenants, where others will provide you with individualized consumption data you can use to educate and inform your tenants, take a closer look at fluctuations, and motivate each tenant to make necessary changes. Most clients prefer to install submetering that takes the process one step further, breaking out the tenant’s cost for the amount of energy, gas or water they are consuming.
