I rent in a multi-dwell building. We are not directly charged for hot water but trying to figure out if we are indirectly charged via the Con-Ed gas bill.

Is it possible to meter gas usage for the heating of water in a building with one gas-powered boiler? If so, how? I have access to the boiler room. What should I look for to confirm?

Nope. One boiler means only one opportunity to meter the gas.

They could meter the hot water you use from the boiler individually, but not the gas used to fire the boiler.
