What is voltage optimisation?

Voltage optimisation is an electrical energy saving technique which is installed in series with the mains electricity supply to give an optimum supply voltage for you home equipment. Voltage optimisation improves power quality by balancing phase voltages and filtering harmonics and transients from the supply.

Most household appliances manufactured for Europe and the UK are rated at 220V and may indeed operate at an even lower voltage, whereas the electrical supply from the National Grid averages at 242V.

The higher the voltage the higher the energy consumption. In addition, higher voltage tends to increase the heat generation in motors, and generally reduces the life expectancy of electrical equipment, including lighting bulbs.

A voltage optimisation system provides simplicity and efficiency. Installed between the meter and consumer unit, it requires a simple 2 wires in, 2 wires out installation and will optimise the whole property, not just selected circuits.

Prevent Wear on Appliances

Installing a voltage optimisation system in your home reduces wear and tear on household appliances caused by electrical over supply and power surges. It can also save money on electricity bills by between £130-£200 per year.

A domestic voltage optimisation system will also improve the energy efficiency of your home by optimising the voltage output to reduce energy consumption, lower carbon emissions and save money on electricity bills.

Most electrical equipment manufactured for Europe and the UK is rated at 220V and may indeed operate at an even lower voltage. The average incoming voltage to a home from the National Grid is 242V (although it can be as high as 253V).

There is nothing to be gained by operating equipment at a voltage higher than it was designed for; quite the contrary as over-voltage will significantly reduce the life expectancy of most household appliances.
