The Importance of Water & Electricity Meters in the Hotel Business

Water and electricity meters are tools used to measure consumption levels and volumes of water/electricity. The use of electricity and water in the household is a primary need and every day the use of electricity and water in households, public facilities and hotel businesses can be recorded and monitored using the available meters.


In the hotel business, energy efficiency is the focus of the Engineering Department. They monitor and control energy consumption, look for ways to reduce energy costs, and integrate green technologies to support sustainable practices.


The use of energy in buildings or structures is very important, especially the use of electrical energy and water, the portion of use and allocation of funds for its provision is the largest. The hotel industry has an operational energy usage time of relatively 24 hours a day. This requires guaranteeing the availability of sufficient electricity and water supplies to maintain hotel service productivity. To overcome wasteful energy use which will result in increases in electricity payments, energy efficiency must be implemented.


The Importance of Water Meters


Water supply to our homes is a basic need, but unlike gas and electricity, we don't have the option to shop around to get the best deal. This suggests that the price of water is set and there is not much we can do about it, however this is not necessarily the case as some people may feel that they can save money on their water bill by switching to a water meter. The difference is that unmetered supplies have a fixed price regardless of how much water you use, whereas water meters only charge you according to the amount of water you actually use. Of course, this means that households that have high usage, such as families with a larger number of members, are usually better at using non-metered supplies and households that don't use as much, such as homes with only 1 or 2 people, it is better to use one meter.


1. Better for the environment?


Most report that they become more water conscious when they pay for the amount of water they actually use. This means making more efforts not to waste water and that is much better for the environment.


2. Higher property groups can pay more.


This varies from provider to provider but some base their non-metered charges on your property band. Therefore, if you live alone but on a large property, or in an expensive area that attracts a higher class of society, you may have to pay more than you should for water.


3. Detect leaks early.


If you are unlucky enough to have a leak on your property, your water meter can provide an early warning before too much damage occurs. This is because the water meter will show excessive water usage on your bill and alert you to the problem. Here's some useful information about detecting leaks in your home.

The Importance of Electricity Meters


Electricity metering is the process of tracking a property's power consumption using a utility meter, often known as a main meter or primary meter. These devices are responsible for tracking the overall power usage of a building or campus. Utility companies often install meters in buildings, read them, and then issue appropriate bills. For single-family units, this may be sufficient, but for multi-unit buildings, this becomes more problematic.


Apart from knowing the amount of electrical energy used, or disconnecting electrical energy, another function of an electricity meter that is no less important is as a limiter for electrical power.




Electric Meters are a great asset for property managers responsible for more than one property, as they allow accurate billing for all tenants. Power consumption and expected consequences no longer depend on unfair distribution of costs, or management's best estimates. Submetering systems can measure power usage accurately, enabling real-time data processing. The result is that management can accurately charge all tenants for their monthly consumption, while sharing real-time consumption information with tenants. This is an attractive option for renters looking for a cost-effective housing solution.




The constant pressure to keep profits high is a major challenge for building management. Many companies in the property management industry are struggling to keep up with continuously rising operational costs. However, many management businesses cannot afford to undertake expensive construction projects to accommodate tenants. Technology-based energy systems are a great way to better control operating costs in older buildings without making a large financial commitment. The professionals at A2B Moving and Storage, for example, have adopted the use of wireless submetering technology that can be easily integrated into existing infrastructure to save costs. In fact, recent research shows that submetering systems and other forms of energy management tools can significantly reduce operational costs related to energy and water use.




With the use of sophisticated programming, submetering networks can monitor and evaluate power usage throughout a city or region. Tenants who stay up to date on their electricity usage can better manage their electricity needs. As a result, consumers can reduce energy consumption and save on their monthly bills. With increasing energy awareness, widespread adoption of energy saving measures can result in cost savings through reduced utility bills and operational costs.


Technological Innovation


Currently, the hotel industry may not have fully reached the stage of implementing the latest technological innovations. However, sooner or later, every development and discovery of the latest technological innovations will increasingly make the world more connected and develop into a more personalized experience with more enjoyable experiences for consumers.


Technological innovation allows hotels to appear differently in the eyes of the public, meet guest expectations and expand the market. But technology will never replace the warmth and personalization that human interaction brings. In the future, although we will see more technological advances, human interaction will remain relevant.


So, how can hotels save energy? One of the most important technologies for energy management is called a building automation system, or BAS.


BAS connects all the different devices in your hotel—from thermostats and lighting to security systems and door locks—and lets you control them all from one central location.


Smart meters are a great way to save money because they allow you to see where your energy is being drained the most and make changes to save more. For example, if you notice that your hotel uses a lot of electricity during the day, you can adjust your energy usage habits to save money.


There are also a number of technologies that can help you save energy by making your hotel more efficient. For example, installing energy-saving light bulbs can save up to 75% of the energy used by traditional light bulbs.


Likewise, upgrading your HVAC system can save up to 30% of the energy consumed. And installing a water meter can save you up to 10% on your water bill by measuring and tracking your hotel's water usage.
