Marshall-Tufflex, the UK energy-management specialist, has launched a new online savings calculator to help monitor domestic electricity consumption.
The calculator, called Voltis Home, can be found at www.savepowerathome.co.uk. It will provide end users with the full details of how and why voltage optimisation works and what level of savings homeowners can expect.
“This new website explains the concept of voltage optimisation to domestic customers and shows what Voltis Home can achieve for them,” said Jeremy Dodge, head of marketing and technical services at Marshall-Tufflex.
“It also gives electrical contractors technical information, installation diagrams and product details in a clear and concise manner, enabling them to market the system to their clients.” The calculator can help cut domestic electricity bills by up to 17%.
A registered electrician can install the system (between an electrical meter and a consumer unit) with an hour, making it straight forward, easy to install and use.
The ‘intelligent' operation system is rated to a market leading 60Amps (approximately 13kW), which means it can be connected to all domestic equipment, including lights, electric heating, electric shows and cookers.
Electrical equipment works most efficiently at around 220V. This over-supply of energy not only costs money, it substantially reduces the lifespan of domestic appliances. Voltis Home optimises the power supplied to appliances to around 220V.
In short, users no longer pay for electricity they don’t need, don’t use and which ‘wears out’ appliances.
