With the rapid progression of technology, increasing numbers of homeowners are fitting their homes with all kinds of smart appliances. While these devices are often energy-saving as well as convenient, some homeowners don’t take the necessary precautions to ensure their homes and appliances are protected. Today we are going to bust 3 home energy myths that could be costing you hundreds of dollars each year.
Myth 1: Power surges usually come from sources outside the home.
Too many homeowners don’t realize that up to 80% of power surges come from within your home. They are often caused by something as simple as turning large appliances on and off.
Myth 2: All I need to do to protect my devices from power surges is to plug everything in to surge protected outlet strips.
This might protect your phone charges and laptops, but what about your HVAC system, attic fan, security system, or other large appliances? If you want to truly protect your home from power surges, you need a whole-home solution that will protect even the largest of appliances. Check out the PowerShield Power Conditioning System and protect your home and appliances from unexpected power surges.
Myth 3: I only pay for the energy that I use.
Here’s another big surprise for many homeowners. Up to 15% of the energy you are paying for goes unused. Just think about that for a moment. That adds up quickly. Fortunately, there is something you can do to help make your home more energy-efficient. A home power conditioning system like PowerShield not only provides surge protection but it also streamlines your energy usage and conditions incoming power to ensure you are getting the most out of your money.
