SAVE UP TO 25% ON YOUR MONTHLY ELECTRIC BILLS!
The Power-Save System for Homeowners
If you could save up to 25% on electric bills by storing unused electricity, would you do it?
The technology that makes these savings possible is available today. It’s called the Power-Save System.
The Power-Save System stores electricity that is otherwise lost by electrical appliances in your home. You draw on the stored power when you need it — reducing the amount of power you must draw from your utility company, which lowers your electric bill.
Homeowners who install the Power-Save System can typically save 8-10% on their electric bills each month. You could save as much as 25%.
Features and Benefits of the Power-Save 1200
The Power-Save 1200 can save you money on your electric bills, and it offers so much, including the following benefits:
- Reduces electrical bills up to 25% per month
- Increases motor and appliance life
- UL Tested and Listed
- CSA certified
- Eliminates power surges
- Reduces ‘noise’ in the electrical system
How Does the Power-Save 1200 Work?
A: The unit provides energy savings by reducing the amount of power drawn from your utility with the use of specially designed harmonic resistant capacitors. Power-Save 1200 systems optimize your home’s power factor thus reducing the amount of energy your homes motor loads use such as air conditioners, refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, dishwashers, pool pumps, vacuum cleaners, furnace blower motors, fans, etc. Motor loads require more energy to do their work compared to other electrical equipment in your home. The Power-Save 1200′s power factor optimization significantly increases the efficiency of your motor load and stores waste energy resulting in decreased demand and usage of electricity from your utility company. This equates to significant cost savings for you the home owner.
Power factor is the measurement of how efficient your electrical system is using the energy delivered to your home from your utility company. For example, your stove and dryer heating coils and incandescent light bulbs have a power factor rating of unity or 1. This equipment converts electric energy to heat and light. Motor loads as described above can have power factor ratings as low as .2. This combination of electric loads in American homes results in an average power factor rating\ of .77 or less. the .77 indicates that your home is using more energy than it should to operate your electrical equipment. The Power-Save 1200 technology has a proven track record of increasing a home’s power factor rating to .95 or better.
Power-Save 1200 technology provides Surge and Spike Suppression, a feature that will help protect and extend the useful life of your electrical equipment. Voltage surges and spikes come from many different internal and external sources such as utility grid changes, damaged transformers or electrical lines due to accidents or acts of God, old or out dated utility transformers that supply electrical power to your home, lightning and turning on and off major motor loads in your home. Typical homes in the United States are bombarded with literally hundreds of surges and spikes a day that damage sensitive electrical equipment over time. The external lights on the Power-Save 1200 system provide an easy visual indicator that the system is protecting your home.
3. Electrical Noise Filtration
Power-Save 1200 technology provides Harmonic Filtration which has become more important since the 1980s and almost mandatory going into the 21st Century due to the proliferation of computers, fax and copy machines and variable frequency drives which are know as nonlinear loads. Nonlinear loads ask for and use electrical current in pulses unlike traditional electrical equipment. This pulse use of electrical current creates damaging noise, interference and heat on today’s electrical systems causing interference within sensitive electrical equipment or worse causing them to overheat and fail. The use of computerized electronics within the American home has been growing at exponential rates and the need for filtering out the interference, noise and heat created by nonlinear loads has never been greater.
Frequently Asked Questions
A: Power factor is the percentage of electricity that’s delivered to your house and used effectively, compared to what is wasted.
For example, a 1.0 power factor means that all the electricity that’s being delivered to your home is being used effectively for its purpose.
Most homes in America today have a .77 power factor or lower. Only 77% of the electricity we pay for is being used. That means 23% is being wasted!
In homes with a low power factor, homeowners are paying for more electricity from the utility company to do the same amount of work.
The Power-Save unit increases your home’s power factor to as much as .97 or .98, which reduces the amount of electricity you must buy from the utility company.
A: The Power-Save 1200 works in any home that has a circuit breaker panel with breaker switches. The unit will work on any single-phase electric application for homes.
A: No. If anything, your motors will run about 10% cooler, which can extend the life of your appliance motors.
A: That depends on many factors. The size of your home, the amount of inductive motor load, and the amount you are paying per kilowatt-hour for electricity etc. However, generally speaking users of the product have seen up to 25% in reduced consumption, but the average savings is somewhere in the 15% to 20% range.
A: Generally about 6-12 months, but again, the same factors above apply, some will see sooner (6 months), some will see later (12 months).
A: We recommend installation by an electrician. The unit comes with complete installation instructions. It installs in about 20-30 minutes.
A: It has a predicted lifespan of up to 20 years.
A: The Power-Save also protects the entire home against power surges. No longer a need for so many surge protectors in the home. The Power-Save 1200 provides a broad range of protection for hardwired appliances and most home electronics such as televisions, satellite equipment, entertainment systems, etc. The unit protects from power line surges as well as spikes caused by internal wiring problems, loose connections and fluctuating demand from large motors such as appliances, vacuum cleaners, heating and cooling equipment, etc.
