What is the POWERGARD? The
POWERGARD is new, innovative device that filters the
supply voltage while improving the efficiency and power
factor of the electricity consumed in a home by
electrical appliances. It's purpose is to save wasted
electricity in homes, condominiums, apartments, shops,
restaurants, offices. As an added benefit or huge bonus,
which is how we look at it, the POWERGARD is also a
certified EMF filter device which effectively reduces
electromagnetic fields (EMF). Please educate
yourself on the harmful effects of
electromagnetic fields (EMF) so you can appreciate
the true benefit to your entire family to reduce
exposure to EMF. In our estimation the POWERGARD
is a win win product.
POWERGARD does not consume electrical energy. You can use it
24 hours a day all year round without increasing electricity
The amount of
energy that can be saved depends on factors such as the type
of electrical appliances used (i.e. air conditioning,
garbage disposal unit..), the amount of electrical used and
even the location of the home. Homes near shops, restaurants
and light industries, where voltage supply is unstable and
may fluctuate, will see higher savings.
to extending the life span of appliance motors, the
POWERGARD also reduces the reactive power generated by
inductive loads. This helps utility companies by eliminating
interference to the community power supply.
is a next generation device has been professionally tested
and checked for compliance with International Safety
POWERGARD 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 Air
Conditioning units, refrigerators, freezers, washers,
dryers, dishwashers, pool pumps, vacuum cleaners,
furnace blower motors, fans etc.)
POWERGARD technology supplies that stored electricity
back to the inductive loads of the house causing the home to
require less electricity from the utility. This causes a
decrease in demand from the utility.
When there is a decrease the demand from the utility, the
meter slows down coinciding with less use of electricity.
When you have already paid for that electricity, why waste
it when you can store it, and reuse it again. This whole
process is called power factor optimization.
Why use POWERGARD?
All electrical equipment and appliances become less
efficient over time. As they age, they consume more power in
order to deliver the same service, hence the higher
electricity bills. Since there are many
in every household, each with different power and current
requirements, this affects the voltage and current
consumption. Unstable supply voltages increase in resistance
due to wire size and poor power supply which may result in
power loss. The POWERGARD is designed to compensate for
Does the POWERGARD work in any home?
Yes, simply plug the POWERGARD in any power outlet and start
saving money. The unit is specifically designed to work for
Can the POWERGARD negatively impact
NO. In fact, by reducing the amount of power consumed by the
household appliances, the motors in those appliances will
run about up to 10% cooler; prolonging their life span.
Yes! The POWERGARD is UL listed and tested, also CE
certified for Europe and cULus for Canada.
How much can I expect to save per
month by using the POWERGARD? That depends on many factors; the size of your home, the
amount of inductive motor load, and the amount you are
paying per kilowatt-hour for electricity. It's not unusual
for users of the product to see up to 10% and more in
How long will it take for the POWERGARD to pay for itself?
Generally about 6-12 months although the same factors above
apply; some will see the payback in 6 months and some in a
year or more.
Is the POWERGARD easy to install? Unlike older versions of this product, you do not need a
qualified technician or electrician to install the POWERGARD.
Simply plug it into a wall outlet and turn it on.
Can POWERGARD be used in other
countries with different voltage? Yes. Energy$aver™ can be used in other countries that have
an electrical supply of 110 to 130 Volts AC or 220 to 240
Volts AC, and 50-60Hz. We have all the plug adapters for
How many units would customers
require? For any normal apartment or house, with a single phase
service, you just need to install one unit.
It has a planned life span of up to 10 years.
Why haven’t I heard of this product
First, this generation of product is new to the market.
Also, until recently, electric rates throughout America were
low, costing about 2, 3 or 4 cents per kilowatt-hour. Now,
rising electric rates are 8, 10, 12, 14, and 19 and in some
cases New York City is 22 cents per Kwh, and Hawaii is 33.5
cents per Kwh. At lower rates, interest in POWERGARD was
poor, but at the current high rates, and growing concern for
environment, there is a renewed interest in energy
conservation and the POWERGARD.
