Save energy costs with voltage reduction

There are several effective ways to cut your household energy bills, including simple steps like reducing the amount of water you use and only using your heating when you really need it. Electricity is likely to be one of your largest expenses, particularly if you live in a home packed with modern appliances and entertainment devices. You can cut your electricity consumption in several ways, such as by turning appliances off when they’re not in use rather than leaving them on standby.

One of the most effective ways to make savings on your electricity bill is to install a voltage optimisation device. The voltage fed into your property from the mains will be slightly higher than the amount needed by any of your devices. This results in wastage, particularly amongst devices that are left on around the clock like fridges and freezers. In the UK you could find your property receives 4% more electricity than you actually need.

By fitting an optimisation device, you will reduce the current in your property to the level you need, resulting in financial savings and lower energy consumption. The devices can help to save energy in a number of ways, including in kitchen appliances, TVs and lighting. In the best cases you can save 10% on your energy bill, including up to 16% savings for fridges and freezers.

Voltage optimisation devices need to be fitted by trained electricians to ensure they are installed safely. This is vital, or you could find faults with your system and even end up damaging the wiring, resulting in further expense. Remember to ensure the electrician uses quality products too so you can have confidence in the device.
