With Energy usage on the rise, and the number of electronics in the home increasing rapidly, now is the time to start conserving energy and protecting these investments with a clean power system. SteadyPower provides a cost-effective, single-installation way to protect the entire home from electrical surges and spikes while conditioning incoming electricity to optimize power factor and reduce static-causing line noise.
Typical residential and light commercial power sources allow hundreds of spikes and surges each day to reach valuable electronic equipment in the home. While these voltage spikes come from many sources (power fluctuations, lightning, static electricity, etc), all can cause damage to televisions, stereos, computers, security systems, and other costly electronics. SteadyPower helps to moderate these surges and spikes with a kind of electrical 'relief valve' system, diverting them to the neutral/ground line. In the event a surge such as a lightning strike to outside power lines should attempt to pass through, SteadyPower is designed to cut off the flow of electricity and block the surge, keeping damage to appliances and electronics to a minimum.
In addition to protection from surges and spikes, SteadyPower works to improve power factor, up to .97 or .98, helping motorized home appliances like air conditioners, refrigerators, washers and dryers, furnace blowers, etc. to operate more efficiently when not operating at full capacity.
Finally, there's electrical line 'noise' produced by operating electronic devices that can cause static on home radio receivers, 'hum' in fluorescent lamps, and 'snow' on the television. All this noise in a home's electrical system can damage switching power supplies, causing premature failure. By reducing line noise and trash current in the home, SteadyPower helps to prolong the life of appliances and electronics that use switching power supplies.
