COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NWP Services Corporation (NWP), the multi-housing industry’s leading provider of utility cost recovery and energy management solutions, today announced the release of NWP Submeter Systems and Services’ next-generation Leak Detection program, demonstrating a continued commitment in development to maximize the return on customer investments in submetering and expanding the benefits gained from the use of submetering for improved property operations. NWP Submeter’s Leak Detection program can be implemented with any submetering system whether it is a remotely read system, using the Internet or dial-up telephone, or a manually read system. The program is based on proactive alerts which trigger only when usage has been flagged with a “Warning” or “Extreme” status and provides specific recommendations for actions to be taken based on the level of concern. Meter reads may be analyzed hourly or at even more frequent intervals for consistent usage during ‘off-hours’ to identify and notify customers about issues within hours of the initial occurrence.
“We are excited to lead the way once again in this next evolution in the use of submeters,” stated Howard Behr, vice president of NWP Submeter. “This advancement allows potential usage issues and concerns to be identified and resolved even before residents are aware, and shifts submeters from simply being a facilitator of the billing process, to practical and actionable opportunities for saving money and resources. An effective leak detection program will significantly improve resident relations and greatly enhance the overall green, sustainable initiatives pursued by leading multifamily owners and community managers,” added Behr.
While broken pipes can cause major damage and result in significant expense, studies show most unresolved leaks are caused by dripping faucets or faulty toilet flappers. NWP’s Leak Detection program will allow property staff to proactively monitor high water usage, reduce utility expense, and promote a “go green” environment by conserving precious resources while reducing costs and increasing resident satisfaction.
All properties already utilizing NWP’s Meter Assurance Plan (MAP) will now automatically receive the Leak Detection service at no additional charge. For more information on NWP Submeter Systems and Services, please visit www.nwpsubmeter.com or www.nwpsc.com.
