There are no definitive answers to how much you will save with a KVAR NATIONAL Panel Unit installation, nor can there be any “independent testing”.
There are many reasons:
· Electrical Equipment
A KVAR unit saves money and energy on the cost of operating motors: Washers, Dryers, Dishwashers, Air Conditioning, Pool. A KVAR unit will not save energy with Electrical devices like Lighting, TV and Gaming systems and home security systems. If these are the type of devices running constantly in your home, your best way to save energy is through “conservation”: turn them off.
· Temperature Differences
Homes vary in temperatures, by choice. In the summer months, some home thermostats are set just high enough to prevent “body baking”, while others set it to “blizzard” settings. Others simply open the windows and do not use much Air Conditioning. In the winter months, there are some savings in homes with forced air or heat pumps. A Kvar unit will not save on electric heat.
· Number of Occupants
Numbers of occupants vary from home to home. Washers, dryers, and dishwashers may run
constantly with a large family, and not often in an “empty nesters” home. Frequently opening the front door and the refrigerator door also has an impact on energy consumption.
· Age Groups in residence
Every age group uses energy differently. Hairdryers. Temperature and lighting requirements. Electrical equipment associated with health issues.
There are simply too many variables to quantify the amount of savings to any particular homeowner.
KVAR NATIONAL has many homeowner testimonials, exclusive to KVAR NATIONAL.
