Below are some electricity saving options you can use to save money and reduce your electrical consumption. Options include the Smart Box Electric Saver.
Why wait 5 to 10 years to recover costs from new windows, doors, furnaces or water heaters? Start saving money instantly with your “smart box” today. A “smart box” uses state-of-the art technology to better manage the flow of power from your utility company. This technology creates a condition where the power supply is more constant. It is used to better supply varying loads of power. The result is a power factor increase. We guarantee 10% reduction in kilowatt hours on your electrical bill or your money back! Many customers experience 20-40% savings! Electrical rates are constantly rising. Don’t get caught in their monthly budget program. Install a smart box today!
Correct Your Power Factor with a Smart Box
Power factor measures how efficiently a building uses power supplied by a utility company. It ensures your appliances run more efficiently by reducing the amount of energy needed. Power factor is defined as the ratio of real (working or kw) power to apparent (total or kva) power. For example, we know that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. However, because our roads don’t go exactly in a straight line, we end up driving further to get to the same place. The same is true for electricity. A motor may need 100 kilowatts of power to operate, but it may be drawing 115 kilowatts instead. These inductive electrical loads increase the amount of apparent (total) power causing the power factor to decrease.
Benefits of a Smart Box
- Provides surge protection up to 2,000 joules (equal to 60,000 amperes per leg in your service panel)
- Electrical motors and transformers will run cooler
- Increases lifespan and efficiency of electrical motors and transformers
- Saves money
Inductive Loads That May Be Causing Low Power Factor
- HID lighting ballasts
- Motors for machinery
- HVAC equipment
- Condensers for air conditioning
- Heat exchangers
Benefits for Correcting Your Power Factor
Your electrical bill may be smaller. Many utilities charge customers with power factors less than 0.95 a fee.. Correcting your power factor will help you avoid this fee. Uncorrected power factor can cause losses in the electrical distribution system (voltage drops and/or power losses). Overheating and premature failure of motors and other inductive equipment can be caused by voltage drops and poor power factor. Proper power factor will allow your inductive equipment to operate more efficiently and last longer. Utility companies are aware of power factor correction devices which have been around for a while. Many large electrical consumers have been concerned about power factor and its costs for many years.
Since every building uses power and operates differently, it is difficult to determine the exact amount of savings that can be achieved with power factor correction devices. Many people and businesses have installed this technology. EcoManity has customer approved copies of utility bills that verify the savings. References will be provided upon request.
