Whole House Energy Management
Save money and eliminate wasted electrical consumption through Power Factor Optimization
Many of the appliances in your home utilize some kind of motor (refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, dishwashers, ceiling fans, air conditioning units, pool pumps, vacuum cleaners and furnace blowers, to name a few.) These appliances are designed to operate most efficiently when operating at full capacity. They pull more energy than they use when not operating at full capacity, wasting the difference.
Now ask yourself this ..."How often does anything in my house work at full capacity?" If you're like most Americans, your home is only operating at a Power Factor of 77. That means you're wasting 23% of the electricity being delivered to your home, just because your motorized appliances are working at less than capacity.
How does Power Factor Optimization work?
Simply put, the e3 gets the incoming power to your home and the draw of power coming from within the home to operate "in phase" with one another, increasing your home's power factor-to .97 or .98 in most cases. This creates a more effective use of the electricity coming in and lowers power waste.
Because the PowerwoRx e3 increases the efficiency of electrical use in the home and lowers wasted power consumption, the effect is two-fold!
First, you can feel good because you're being more "green;' and conserving our planet's valuable resources.
Second, you can see the rewards of .increased electrical efficiency in a lower energy bill.
Protect appliances and electronics from the damage of voltage spikes with Surge Protection.
Everyday, typical residential and light commercial power sources allow literally hundreds of surges and spikes to reach valuable,and often times sensitive, electronic equipment in your home. These voltage spikes may come from many different sources; external (lightning strikes, power fluctuations, etc.) as well as intimal (static electricity, motors turning on and off).They can all cause damage to almost every electronic device or appliance (televisions, stereos, computers, DVRs, security systems, cordless phones, florescent lamps, etc.) in your home.
What makes the e3's surge protection superior to others?
Every day, PowerwoRx e3 diverts the countless surges trying to enter your home, as well as those generated inside your home, thereby keeping damage from these surges to a minimum. This prolongs the operating life of your appliances and electronic devices. The PowerwoRx e3 uses industrial quality MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistors) which act as a sort of "pressure relief valve;' diverting the surge to the neutral/ground lines. In the event of a massive surge (like those produced by lightning strikes), the unit sacrifices itself in order to protect the facility. Even though the unit was doing its job, Continental Power Corporation will replace the unit throughout the 10 year warranty period.
What if PowerwoRx e3 fai1s?
If PowerwoRx e3 fails to protect your equipment from a massive surge like those generated by lightning, our insurer will pay to replace damaged equipment and appliances up to $25,000 ($2,500 per item).
Extend the life of appliances and electronics by reducing electrical "noise" with Harmonic Noise Reduction.
Did you know that many of the electronic devices that fill our homes, businesses and factories generate "noise?" If you've ever experienced that all-too-familiar static on your home radio receiver, the "hum" of a fluorescent lamp, or the snow of a weak television signal, then you've experienced it for yourself, and those are just a few examples we can readily see and hear. There's so much more noise being generated every day that we can't see or hear. All that noise, seen or unseen, is doing damage to switching power supplies, causing premature failure.
How does Harmonic Noise Reduction work?
The PowerwoRx e3 filters out harmful harmonic noise and the trash of high frequency currents from the electrical environment. This, in turn, reduces the potential leakage of these waves into the human environment and reduces noise created in non-linear loads such as energy efficient lighting including compact flourescents (CFLs). televisions, computers, variable frequency drives, etc.
As the PowerwoRx e3 helps' reduce the electric noise and trash current in your home, it protects the switching power supplies, helps prevent premature failure of your appliances and electronic devices and prolongs their lives.
For nearly one hundred years, utility companies and big industry have been using this technology. Only recently, however, has the cost of electricity been high enough for the common homeowner to benefit, and for the technology to be sensible in a smaller scale.
