  • 12 year comprehensive warranty on your unit

How The KVAR Unit Works

In relation to residential electrical energy efficiency, the KEC increases power factor, by reducing the amount of reactive power (kVAR) that the load draws from the utility company. What is reactive power you ask? Reactive power is the power that comes from the power company, through your utility meter and goes to the windings of your motors to create the electromagnetic field so that the motor will turn. The wasteful part is that this energy is never consumed; it creates the magnetic field and is then dissipated in the form of heat. Because we have 60 cycle electricity this process must be repeated 60 times every second to keep the motor running. KEC Units store the reactive power (kVAR) needed for the creation of the electromagnetic field within the inductive load. As the motor operates, this reactive power is "pulled" and "pushed" to and from the KEC by the motor. The amount of reactive power required from the utility company by power factor optimization has been greatly reduced, or eliminated
