NWP Services Corporation, a nationwide leader in resident utility billing, energy management and submetering services to the multifamily industry, announced the addition of high usage alerts to its expanded Leak Detection and High Usage Program. As a core element of the Meter Assurance Plan (MAP), NWP Submeter Systems and Services' recurring maintenance program, the Leak Detection and High Usage Program is designed to quickly inform the property staff of potential leaks or high electric usage through alerts which trigger only when usage has been flagged as extreme and provides specific recommendations with actions to be taken. If a property is submetered and enrolled in MAP, it will receive alerts from NWP Submeter identifying concerns about potential issues within hours of occurrence.
"Leaky faucets, sticky toilet flappers and broken pipes are amongst the most common causes of undetected leaks," stated Howard Behr, vice president of NWP Submeter Systems and Services. "Any home device needing power such as heating and air conditioning, refrigerators, and digital devices can represent significant energy consumption and therefore costs. By utilizing this program, property managers can avoid the 'surprise' high utility bills by identifying and facilitating the quick resolution of issues while also minimizing property damage."
NWP Submeter's Leak Detection and High Usage Program has been designed to avoid any unnecessary actions by property staff from false positives and an alert will only be sent when potential issues are identified at a property. With electric alerts, that means the thresholds have been set by time of year and location. The units identified on the alerts with extreme electric usage are notified to check for broken seals on doors and windows and to determine if any old appliances should be replaced.
