Frequently Asked Questions

    1. There are two ways that one uses electricity. First, to do work – it is the reason that we flip the switch on. We want the washing machine to clean clothes or the ceiling fan blades to spin. In order to do this, we use electromagnetic motors.The second way to use electricity is to convert electrical energy into a magnetic field that motors need to do their work. The motors charge and and discharge their magnetic fields 60 times a second for every second that they are running. When they discharge their magnetic field, the magnetic energy is converted back into electrical energy and goes back to the power lines through the neutral wires of your home or office. Peak Energy Saver captures that electricity before it leaves your home or office and recycles it for every motor or transformer in your home or office. This reduces the amount of electricity so that you are only paying for the first way – to do work.You save money by not having to buy electricity to charge the magnetic fields in the motors or transformers. Most homes can recycle an average of 15% to 25% of the electricity they use. If you use these devices, then Peak Energy Saver can recycle a significant percentage of the electricity that they use – electrical motors such as air conditioners, refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, dishwashers, pool pumps, vacuum cleaners, furnace blower motors, fans. Other devices that use transformers can also recycle electricity with Peak Energy Saver – compact flourescent lights, cell phone and ipod chargers, TVs, microwaves, home entertainment systems, game consoles, computers, etc. The only common devices that can not use Peak Energy Saver to recycle electricity are to create heat such as incandescent light bulbs, toaster ovens, electric stoves, electric water heaters or an electric furnace.The technology applied by the Peak Energy Saver 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, and you use 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 is ‘recycling’ electricity.

    2. Yes, as long as you can meet the following criteria. First, you should have a circuit breaker panel with breaker switches and not the old screw in type fuses. Second, if you have a backup power generator, it must be a manual start and not an automatic.

    3. No, if anything, your motors will run about 10% cooler, which is good for a motor because heat is the enemy of a motor. A motor that runs cooler lasts longer.

    4. That depends on many factors. The size of your home, the number of motors and their use, the number of transformers, and the amount you are paying per kilowatt-hour for electricity etc. However, generally speaking users of the product have seen up to 25% in reduced consumption, but the average savings is somewhere in the 15% to 20% range.If you can say yesto more than one of the following questions, then you could be saving a significant amount of money on your electric bill right now!
      • Is your home over 1800 Square feet?
      • Do you have a number of appliances in your home?
      • Do you have have a number of electronic devices in your home like chargers, flat screen TVs, home entertainment systems, or computers?
      • Do you use an air conditioner?
      • Is your central air conditioner / heat pump unit 3 years or older?
      • Is your forced air furnace 3 years or older?
      • Is your refrigerator / freezer not EnergyStar rated?
      • Do you have more than one refrigerator / freezer?
      • Is your dishwasher not EnergyStar rated?
      • Is your washer / dryer not EnergyStar rated?
      • Do you have a pool?
      • Do you have a hot tub or a jacuzzi?
      • Do you have compact flourescent lights?
      • Do you have a well?

    5. Generally about 9-16 months, but again, the same factors above apply, some will see sooner (9 months), some will see later (16 months).

    6. We recommend installation by an electrician. As a service to Peak Energy Technology customers, we provide a list of licensed master electricians near you. You are free to choose any electrician and are not obligated to hire an electrician on the referral list. Peak Energy Technology provides everything that is needed for typical home installation. This minimizes the charges by the electrician since you do not pay for the time for the electrician to run to the hardware store and back for various parts such as circuit breakers. The time to install depends upon the level of difficulty. For most installations, a licensed electrician can install a home or small office unit in about 30 minutes.

    7. It is designed to last 20 years.

    8. That’s easy, two words – cost effectiveness. Up until recently, electric rates throughout America were cheap, costing us 2, 3 or 4 cents per kilowatt-hour. Now, 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 the cheaper rates the Peak Energy Saver didn’t make sense, but at the current rates, it makes all the sense in the world.

    9. The Peak Energy Saver will suppress voltage spikes and surges but it is not a whole house surge protector. While the Peak Energy Saver will suppress small voltage spikes and power surges, if the spike or surge is large enough, it will overwhelm the capacity of the Peak Energy Saver. The destructive energy of the spike or surge will be reduced but not completely stopped. A simple analogy is a sea wall on a coastal town. It provides protection against waves created by typical storms. However, if a large storm or hurricane comes, the sea wall is not enough to stop it. While a Peak Energy Saver is a component in the defense against spikes and surges, it is not a replacement for a true surge protector.
