Residents living in submetered units are responsible for paying for their own utility usage, which helps to greatly decrease costs for multifamily and commercial property owners. Unfortunately, residents who are not aware of conservation techniques may start receiving utility bills that are more expensive than what they’re used to. This can cause residents to become less satisfied with their rental experience and possibly even have a negative influence on their decision to renew a unit.
