It is too bad my mom never had the Power Saver 1200. My mom was excellent at finding ways to save money.
With nine children, one husband and very little income, she had to be. My mom knew how to cut coupons, shut off lights and save water.
My mom reused plastic margarine containers so that she would never have to buy Tupperware and would even recycle it when that poor, little container had been used for the last time.
My mom knew how to live on a budget and how to cut extra costs. Unfortunately for us all, though, I don’t think my mom knew about the Power Saver 1200. Perhaps if she had, I wouldn’t have had to dry all my clothes on the clothesline during my childhood summers.
The Power Saver 1200 is a relatively new device in the electronics world.
The device is really quite simple to use. All you need to do is to attach the device to your electrical appliances and you can begin saving money almost instantly.
The device is safe and effective. Most of the time, you won’t even know that it is working, you will just see the difference when you get your electrical bill every month. Honestly, I can’t think of an easier way to not only save money, but to also help the environment.
After all, using less power means that you are saving fossil fuels. Like all electrical devices, the process by which the Power Saver 1200 works is slightly complicated, and you should have it installed by a qualified electrician.
How does the Power Saver 1200 Work?
I am going to do my best to explain it to you. First we must begin by discussing how your electrical appliances pull electricity from the power company.
When any one of your appliances decides that it needs power, its motor begins to run and calls for the power. However, the power that comes directly from the power lines isn’t in the form that your appliance needs it to be in.
The power needs to be transformed by a transformer, which is attached to the power line at the pole. (This transformer is generally located near the top of the power pole as it carries an extremely large amount of electricity and therefore, is very dangerous.) When the power is transformed by the transformer, there is a certain amount of energy that is lost through the mandatory heating of the wires.
This is a natural process and the amount of heat that is built up is measured in watts. Though there is a certain amount of energy that is unused and lost, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t accounted for by your electric company. You are still charged for this power on your bill, even though you didn’t use it.
This is where the Power Saver 1200 comes in to play. The Power Saver 1200 will store a certain amount of energy within itself. Then, when the motor on your appliance calls for power, the Power Saver 1200 offers this power instead of the power it would be pulling from the transformer initially.
It is as if the Power Saver 1200 starts the ball rolling with the electricity so that your appliance doesn’t have to work as hard. This means that there is far less power lost and, therefore, less unused power that you will be charged for.
I can only imagine how much money the Power Saver 1200 would have saved my family when I was growing up. Sure, my mom would have probably put that money to some other practical use, but there is a chance that maybe she would have let us do something fun with that money. Well, even if my mom didn’t use a Power Saver 1200, that doesn’t mean that I can’t.
Other Ways to Save Money On Your Home Energy Bill
There are of course other ways to save money on your electricity bills like building and installing your own solar panels, but that can get expensive, and the maintenance of them can be a real pain sometimes.
Many folks have found that simply installing some outdoor solar lights, or other kinds of energy efficient outdoor lighting to light up the outdoor areas of their home at night saves them a lot of money from not having a porch or deck light on all night.
You can install solar hot water heaters, and add insulation to your home in places where it is practical to do so, but the hands off nature of using a Power Saver 1200 makes it one of the most popular home energy saving options for many people.
