How Does the KVAR Unit Work?
The KVAR reduces the amount of power drawn from the utility by storing (in its capacitors) otherwise lost electricity (watts) caused by the inductive motors in your home. (Some examples of inductive motors are a/c units, refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, dishwashers, disposals, pool pumps, irrigation pumps, vacuum cleaners, furnace blower motors, fans etc.) The technology applied by the KVAR Unit supplies that stored electricity back to your inductive loads, thus causing you to decrease your demand from the utility. If you decrease your demand from the utility, your meter slows down because you are using less electricity. The thought is, you’ve already paid for that electricity, why pay for it and waste it when you can pay for it, store it, and reuse it again. This whole process is called power factor optimization.
Does the KVAR work in any home?
Yes it does, as long as you have a circuit breaker panel with breaker switches and not the old screw in type fuses, the unit will work on any single-phase electric application for homes.
Will the KVAR adversely affect any of my appliances and their normal use?
No, if anything, your motors will run about 10% cooler, which is good for a motor because heat is the enemy of a motor causing them to burn out over time. KVAR will typically extend the live of motors by 15% or more.
Will KVAR adversely effect my back up generator, solar power or any other alternative power source or visa-versa?
Absolutely not. Your KVAR unit can not make a distinction between power sources. As far as the KVAR unit is concerned, electricity is electricity. It makes no difference where the electricity comes from so it will have no negative effect on the source nor will it be effected by the source. KVAR does however have a very positive effect on the power source by enhancing the capacity of the power source because less amps and watts are being utilized.
Will KVAR have any effect on my computer or other electronics?
Yes. KVAR’s technology and voltage regulation actually cleans up dirty power within the home which is better for computers and electronics as well as anything else powered within the home. Additionally, KVAR’s surge and spike protection helps protect all electrical devices.
Is the KVAR tested and approved by independent labs?
Yes, the KVAR is UL listed and tested, CSA approved, NASA tested, has a level 4 Cleaner and Greener rating, is RoHS compliant and is recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy.
