Do Transient Voltage Surge Suppressors Save Energy?

tvss-lightningAnswer-YES! How? This only happens when it is properly applied as a SYSTEM on an electrical grid covering every location where power is distributed to two or more pieces of electrical equipment. Electricity has the same properties as water when it comes to pressure and resistance. Take your own home for example. Let’s say that you have six water faucets in your home all of which have been exposed to sudden pressure surges in your water pipes for an extended period of time. The result will be leaking faucets which is the location of where the water is distributed for use. Replace the seals in only five of the six faucets. You will still have one that leaks, and one drop a second is 5,000 gallons a year. Do you think the water meter realizes a leaky faucet in your home? Replace some of the seals and save some water. Replace all the seals and save a lot of water. Thousands of gallons over a period of time. Now is when you will start seeing savings in your water bill.

This principle is why we apply a UtiliGuard TVSS Power Quality System unit to every panel, sub panel, branch location, major pieces of equipment etc. We are plugging all the leaks. The cumulative effect will show substantial reduction in energy usage.
