Yes and No. Originally, this energy savings device had been used for decades at such great costs that only large commercial and industrial businesses could benefit. Now it has been made affordable, has a meter that records recycled savings and is available to average consumers and small businesses. The savings are real and are seen immediately. Because of demand, utility prices are expected to increase on average 40% in the next decade. It only makes sense to incorporate some kind of energy-saving device to reduce the impact of those increases
When motors in your home start, they ask the utilities transformer for power (voltage and amperage) to run. The demand for this power runs through the house wiring, through the panel box, through the meter and up the lines to the transformer. This demand for power heats up and strains the motors and wiring in the home; this heat (I2R losses) is watts. The power-saving device, once installed, stores and releases to the home's motors what they need to function properly, thus reducing heat in the wires and the motors. Lowering this heat will reduce your electric bill, reduce the chance of fires and increase the life of the motors.
Usually you begin to see an average of 20% savings on usage during your first month, typically depending on how many inductive loads (motors) are running. Some applications yield greater savings at different times of the year. During summer season the heat causes greater demands and heats motors up, causing more electric usage. In the winter season when air is cooler, motors run cooler and demands are usally less. You may see a greater savings in summer than in the winter. The more inductive the loads, the greater the savings provided to you. Examples of inductive load devices: HVAC systems, heat pumps, any appliance with a motor, even flourescent lighting, etc. The savings add up fast and are substantial!
All of our energy saving devices carry a manufacturers warranty; the NRG-XRP warranty for RR/CR Series Residential and Commercial is 12 years. Typically the NRG-XRP's service life is 20 + years.
Yes. the device will help eliminate surges and spikes in electricity. It is important to protect computers, High Definition LCD, Plasma TV's and Audio Systems from these power surges and spikes that occur every day. The damage these surges cause can add up quickly on high tech equipment.
Absolutely! Businesses or offices are in an ideal position to take advantage of this technology. For most offices and businesses, the savings can accrue quickly because of the higher demand for electricity. Remember, multiple computers, copy machines, printers, fax machines, mini refrigerators, HVAC systems, flourescent lights, bathroom vent fans and anything with a motor in it will be positively affected. Did you know that a single desktop computer has up to 4 motors in it? Become part of the FREE Installation Volunteer "Pilot Program". Pay nothing, earn the savings and at the end of the program keep the equipment at NO CHARGE! See if your business qualifies. There is a minimum number of kilowatts used in order to qualify for the Pilot Program... Ask an Ameriwatt Rep for details.
