Like many people, you may have found yourself trying to find ways to reduce your electric bill and in that search stumbled upon a device known as an electric saver. If you are considering getting one (and you should seriously consider it as they can give really great results) you will need to have it installed.
What? You want to install it yourself? Well, for starters, unless you are yourself an electrician I wouldn’t recommend it. You’ll be dealing with pretty high voltage and there is a potential risk of injury so calling a professional is definitely the way to go.
But, if you feel comfortable doing it and are determined, then you will need to first determine WHERE you will be installing it. The location of installation will make a difference in the results you get. Typically there are 2 points of installation: right after the power meter (to correct the whole house) or at the load (typically the A/C). To find out which you will need to consult with the manufacturer or the distributor as every home is a bit different.
Most electric savers will come with instructions specific to that type of electric saver and should be follower to the letter. First, make sure that the power is turned off. If you don’t know how to do that, then you would best skip the do-it-yourself approach and call a professional.
With the power off, you can proceed to follow the instructions making sure that every connection is tight. Also remember that while the unit itself is waterproof, the connections you made outside the unit are not so precaution should be taken to ensure they will not get wet and cause shorts.
