Overall Billing for Property Managers / Landlords
Billing for properties that are made up of many separate units can be complicated due to various different parameters and calculations involved. ABLE make that work much simpler and easier as our billing model ensures you have a full and clear understanding. All costs can be seen at first glance and all relevant calculation steps are easy to follow meaning you receive a reliable and transparent overview.
ABLE can offer a highly flexible meter reading service from manual to fully automatic. We ensure compliance with all meter reading deadlines and can offer regular functional testing and servicing of devices.
Manual Meter Reading
This standard manual meter reading service means consumption data is read electronically directly from the meter. This service offers precise recording of consumption values and can be easily upgraded to our more convenient ‘semi-automatic’ or ‘fully automatic remote reading’ service options below.
Semi-Automatic Meter Reading
This second tier service option means consumption data can be read from the stairwell, without the need to enter the apartment. Advantages include a reduced effort needed by yourself and your tenants (as there is no need to arrange meter reading dates) and meters in ‘hard to reach’ areas can still be read without any additional hassle.
Automatic Remote Meter Reading
Our fully automatic remote meter reading service. Kamstrup meters can transmit their consumption and operating data (via M-Bus / wireless M-Bus) to a communication unit of your choice (RadioRouter etc) and the communication unit can then re-transmit the data to our IT systems via the mobile (GPRS) network. This solution provides an automatic up-to-date basis for heating and hot-water bills and any further energy analysis, whilst also offering the highest levels of convenience for you and your tenants.
ABLE can offer a full commissioning and re-commissioning service using our factory trained team of engineers. To learn more about how ABLE can help, please contact us now at [email protected] or phone +44 (0)118 916 9420.
