The following tips are helpful in determining why there is no reduction in the cost of the electric bills after installing the device for at least a month.
1. Apparent non-reduction of the electric bill after one month of use. This happens when the Utility monthly bills is an estimated bill instead of actual metered bill.
2. The Save Your Power Bill having been installed, has been left switched off after the power point has been used for other appliances.
3. The device has been installed mid way after the reading of the previous bill or just before the next bill and so does not show a reduction when the bill comes. Too short a period to see the difference.
4. Users electric power usage is not typical or consistent. Eg. Periods of heavy electrical usage fluctuating with periods of very low electrical usage. There is no constant pattern of use. This does not mean that the Save Your Power Bill is not working. An accurate way to judge this situation is to compare the actual bills and average them over 3 months to get a pattern of average monthly consumption and compare it with the preceding 3 months before installation of the Save Your Power Bill.
5. Additional equipment is installed by the User after the Save Your Power Bill Device has been installed. This in effect increases the electrical consumption of the premise over and above what the Save Your Power Bill was originally designed for.
6. User does not install the recommended number of units of Save Your Power Bill calculated according to their monthly consumption, either due to lack of available power-points or installation of additional power-consuming appliances. The Save Your Power Bill is stretched to its limits and cannot perform efficiently.
7. The same situation applies to a premise with 3 phase electrical wiring system. There are insufficient power-points to install the recommended number of devices to optimize the savings (i.e. install a lesser quantity than the recommended units). Each unit of the PT-02 can handle a monthly maximum load not exceeding 2000 KWH x 3 phase (6000KWH) and if a household’s electrical load exceeds it, 2 units should be installed per phase or else the results will not show a reduction in power consumed as the device is overworked. Eg. instead of installing 2 units recommended per phase, (2 for each phase), Owner only installs one unit in each of the 3 phase. Example, a customer merely installs 1 unit in a 3 phase wired building. The other 2 phases are not covered by the Save Your Power Bill, hence the Save Your Power Bill does not seem to work.
8. Savings will be substantial on appliances with inductive loads (motor-related appliances like Air Cons, Freezers, fridge, Fans etc ). Savings will be less on heating elements.
9. The conditions of the household appliances also affect the performances of the Save Your Power Bill. Well maintained appliances certainly cost less to operate (energy efficient) and if after installation of the device, owners neglect to continue maintaining the appliances (eg. Air-cons, servicing the filters, condensers, heat exchangers at the due intervals), this will make the electrical appliances work harder, hence increasing your electrical bill.
10. Ambient temperature also has an effect on the performance of the device. On hotter days, the air con will use more energy to cool the rooms and so the device while reducing the cost of the bills will have to work on higher parameters of ambient temperatures and extra load. This will tend to give an “apparent” indication that the device does not work.
Some air-cons are set on manual High cooling rate all the time and this will also result in apparent in-effectiveness of the Save Your Power Bill.
All electrical supply is subject to surges from time to time, which result in spikes or parasitic peaks that cannot be used by your appliances as working power. These spikes simply consume electricity to no benefit. Worse still, they result in overheating, which shortens the life your appliances and wiring, and in extreme cases can cause burns, blow outs and power cuts.
The Save Your Power Bill uses a capacitor system to stabilize the flow of electricity. It reduces the spikes in the supply, protecting against surges. The system improves the power factor of your electricity and reduces your electricity bill by an average of 10%-30%.The Save Your Power Bill will work on the whole circuit in your building (Single Phase). Field testing for a typical home consistently shows that the Power Saver will save 3 to 4 kw per day, based on electrical consumption of 30 kw per day. The amount of savings depends on a few factors, such as the types of electrical appliances, the time they are in use and the location. Places near to shops, restaurants and light industries, where the voltage supply is unstable and fluctuating will see higher savings. Where voltage supply is particularly unstable, the Save Your Power Bill can reduce electrical consumption by 30% or more. Save Your Power Bill reduces the reactive power generated by inductive loads. It extends the life span of an appliance’s motor, and helps the utility companies by eliminating interference to the power supply. Save Your Power Bill also improves safety by reducing the overheating of electrical wiring. This in effect can lead to reduction in the size of wiring and copper loss. The Save Your Power Bill also extends the life span of your electrical appliances. The Save Your Power Bill is certified for compliance with CE standards. The Device is able to store electricity for 5 to 10 seconds and release it for use during downside voltage.
There are two components of power: reactive power and working (real) power.
- Reactive power (kVAR) is used to create EMF in the inductive loads in your home
- and business. This power performs no “real” work.
- Working power (kW) is the power that performs the function of the load, i.e. turns the
- drive shaf
These two components combine to formulate Apparent Power (kVA), the total power which the load consumes. Apparent power is equal to the square root of kW2 + kVAR2
Power Factor is the ratio of working power (kW) to apparent power (kVA). In other words, looking at all the power that a load consumes, how much of it (percentage wise) is used to perform the real work. A higher Power Factor means the electrical appliance is more efficient and consumes less electricity. The Save Your Power Bill increases the Power Factor of an electrical appliance.
The Save Your Power Bill improves the power factor by reducing the amount of reactive power (kVAR) that the load draws from the utility company. This is accomplished by supplying the reactive power locally at the load by the use of capacitors. Capacitors store the reactive power (kVAR) needed for the creation of the EMF within the inductive load. As the motor operates, this reactive power is “pulled” and “pushed” to and from the capacitors by the motor. In simpler terms, you can say that inductive receivers (motors, transformers, etc) consume reactive energy, while capacitor (capacitive receivers) produce reactive energy. Therefore the amount of reactive power purchased from the utility company by a power factor optimization has been greatly reduced, or eliminated by use of the Save Your Power Bill.
