(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 23, 2011 ) Clarkston, MI -- Antony Bradley, owner of HandyPro Handyman Services in Clarkston is well known by area residents for his friendly service and professional workmanship. One of Bradley's recent customers asked him about a product that claims to reduce electrical usage in homes by up to 20 percent.
Antony knew exactly what the customer was referring to and he explained, The product is called a harmonic capacitor, which some companies claim can decrease or eliminate your electric bill. This sounds too good to be true, because it is.
The harmonic capacitor is said to reduce the amount of power consumed by storing electricity otherwise lost from the motors in home appliances and air conditioners. The cost of the unit is approximately $300 plus labor for installation.
Antony explained more about the product and marketing techniques used to sell the unit, Power factor is the term used to describe the efficiency of electricity from the utility company. The higher the power factor, the more efficient your home is. Recent research indicates the power factor is typically 95 percent in most homes; not the 77 percent claimed by some marketers of the product.
In my opinion, the savings is minute compared to the cost of the product, said Bradley. There are many other things you can do to save electricity, including turning off lights and TVs when not in use, and weatherizing your home.
Other sensible energy saving tips from the Clarkston handyman Services include installing a programmable thermostat, using energy efficient light bulbs, purchasing energy star appliances and making sure there is adequate insulation in the attic.
