Voltage optimisation is not a new technology, it has been widely used in industry for many years saving businesses millions of pounds in reduced energy bills. But only recently has the technology been made available for the home.
The product is designed to regulate the incoming voltage in a property to typically 220V giving householders immediate and significant energy and carbon emission savings but it is important that the voltage optimisation device is installed by a qualified electrician.
The technology explained…
Across Europe the agreed statutory range for voltage is 207V to 253V with the UK voltage typically being 245V. Household appliances must be designed to operate satisfactorily within the European statutory range, however, many of the appliances we use regularly will use less energy at lower voltages and also increase their working life before failing this is especially relevant to fluoresecnt and other types of lamps used in lighting fittings.
A voltage optimisation device reduces and stabilises the voltage at the property to a level within statutory limits but below the voltage that is usually supplied by power companies; in the UK the output of the device is typically around 220V.
The technology eliminates ‘over voltage’, which is a costly and unnecessary waste of energy and ensures many electrical appliances use less electricity, cost less to run and also extend their working life. as well as cutting carbon emissions. As a result homeowners can achieve immediate and significant energy savings for the whole home with a single device fitted to the consumer unit (fuse box).
