Voltage Optimisation is another new form of technology that minimises the amount of waste energy produced within the home as a means of saving money. In a household without Voltage Optimisation, all electrical appliances will receive the same amount of voltage input (or pressure), 216v-253v, regardless of the amount they actually require to function. This means, washing machines and fridge freezers are given the same input as your kettle or mobile phone charger. As you can imagine, supplying such small appliances with the same amount of pressure as much larger appliances results in wasted energy and, wasted money.
Voltage Optimisation works by acting as a pressure valve to control and regulate the supply of electricity to your appliances. Instead of overpowering your appliances, it gives them only the amount of voltage needed to function, providing a saving of up to 19% on your electricity bills.
As well as saving money in terms of your electricity bills, giving your appliances the required input increases their life-span. Limiting the amount of wear and tear caused by the appliances overworking means you’ll save even more money by not having to replace or repair existing household products. Although your appliances will be using less energy and you’ll see a dramatic change in your electricity bills, you won’t notice any change in the performance of your appliances. There may be less input into things like lamps, toasters and vacuum cleaners but the output they produce is exactly the same. There is no maintenance costs with Voltage Optimisation and from the moment it’s installed, it saves money 24/7.
