How to Save Power in your home

I was amazed that all you do is plug the device into an electrical outlet close to your refrigerator. Why isn't every one in the country using this?

Home energy costs on average are increasing across the nation. The record setting heat is increasing the demand for energy, making it more of a priority for home owners to save power.

Refrigerators are typically put the most demand on a house hold electric bill. The reason for this is because the unit is set to maintain a steady temperature that is lower than the ambient temperature, and its always running. In a typical household with kids, its common for the refrigerator door to be open frequently and a couple minutes at a time as the door is left open while the child finds a glass and pours themselves a drink before finally closing the refrigerator or freezer door.

To maintain the temperature of the refrigerator and the freezer, a motor turns on frequently to maintain the set temperatures. When motors turn on they produce what is called an inductive load. Inductive loads create waste. That is, the higher the inductive load, the higher is the percentage of unusable electricity that spins the meter.

There is a solution that is specifically designed to address the inefficiencies of these types of common household devices. The amazing device is something that one simply plugs into an electrical outlet strategically located near the refrigerator A second unit is then plugged into an outlet near or in the master bedroom, and a home, apartment, condo, or townhouse up to 5,500 square feet will realize a minimum guaranteed 8% reduction in electricity.

The average savings of this device is 12%. These devices have the added and possibly more important benefit of greatly reducing the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that permeate through a home. These EMFs have been reported to potentially have negative health effects over prolonged exposure.

Air conditioners similarly create inductive loads as the compressor turns on and off to maintain a cool and comfortable living environment.

The record setting temperatures are causing these devices to run more frequently and thus run up the electric bill.

Incandescent light bulbs create a lot of heat, and thus a lot of wasted electricity. However, the cost of the new mercury laden bulbs that are energy efficient don't seem to be a worth while alternative. Although they do reduce the energy consumption, the hazardous situation that occurs when one of these new bulbs breaks seems to offset the value of the savings. Furthermore, the cost of these bulbs creates a lengthy time to realize the cost savings over the use of the traditional incandescent bulbs.

The next biggest draw would most likely be the washer and dryer. The average washer and dryer, together, use approximately 920 watts per hour to run. The reason the refrigerator is number one one the list of energy draws is because its running 24 x 7. The air conditioner and washer/dryer and dishwasher are not always in use.

To save power, it is a good idea to upgrade to newer, energy efficient appliances. Regardless if this upgrade has occurred or not, the energy savings device being marketed by Freedomfflow LLC will save a minimum of 8%, and an average of 12% by saving on power.
