Home Energy Conservation – Real Savings With Power Factor Correction

If you are like most interested in home energy conservation, the bottom line is: how much can I reduce the cost of the utilities I purchase for my home? How much will it cost me? And, what's my return on the investment?

In the past decade, a whole new industry has evolved, home energy auditing. Auditors will often analyze your home for energy efficiency on the speculation of selling your products to save you money on utilities.

You can visit this site if you want to know about home energy conservation.

Much of what you will hear from an auditor about boosting the energy efficiency of your home you could pick up from a visit to a Lowes or Home Depot. Adding items such as programmable thermostats, hot water heater timers, adding attic insulation, and so on are pretty much common sense.

Since the Arab oil embargo of 1973, which overnight tripled the price of oil, homeowners have been on a never-ending search for products and new or improved technologies to save money on heating oil and natural gas.

But what about home electric consumption? You could replace all your home appliances with Energy Star-rated equipment. However, the 5% savings you would gain would hardly justify the expenditure.

The solution to reducing your home's electric consumption comes from the 1920s: Power Factor Correction.

Adding a power factor corrector to your home's electric panel will improve the quality of the electricity delivered to you from the utility company. Yes, electricity has a quality component to it. You will never be encouraged to add a Power Factor Corrector to your home from your utility. Why? Electric companies (and their shareholders) wish to sell you more electricity, not less.
