Is KVAR Power Factor Correction Equipment a Scam?
Below are some of the conversations that I have actually had with customers who want more information on whether KVAR Power Factor Correction devices are a scam or not. We urge EVERYONE we talk to, to actually test products for themselves (especially when they come with a 1 year money back guarantee) rather than believing someone he/she has never met in real life.
When using KVAR PFC devices, we have found different properties get different savings results depending on how efficient or inefficient their property is. You know your intentions are what’s best for you. Who knows who’s intentions the product reviewer has in mind. It could be their own, it could be his/her employer’s best intentions or it could just be someone who likes causing confusion and chaos just for fun. So do your own due diligence. I will share with you my experiences below…
Customer: I saw on the internet the other day that these things are a scam.
Me: Well if you go back to those websites and take a close look, they don’t recommend anything. All you read is negative negative negative. When you meet someone in life who has only complaints, you instinctively know something is not quite right and tune them out. And this situation is no different.
I have lots of happy customers who have given me product reviews (I direct them back to my site to my testimonials page and remind them that I give an unconditional full 1 year money back guarantee.) I then ask them, “what do you have to lose, other than high electric bills?” And 90 plus % of them say, “ok, I’ll take one.”
Customer: If these things are so great, why doesn’t everyone have one or why have I never heard of this before?
Me: Well, you will notice back in the 80’s when this started to come around in the residential market the price per kwh was quite low, and now within the last few years the cost has increased considerably. “You have noticed this right?”
Me: Ok, if I offered you 20 years ago a box for $400 to cut your electric bill, on average 10-15% which means you would get your money back in about 8-12 years, would you be interested?
Customer: No, not really.
Me: But, what if I tell you, what if I sell you the same box now which will get your money back within 1-2 years and has a 20 year warranty. Would you be interested?
Me: There’s your answer, that’s why you have never heard of this, because this is the real life answer to the question you just asked.
Customer : Ok.
There are articles on the internet claiming the technology behind power factor correction devices do not work, is a hoax, a scam, or the savings you would get if you installed a power saving device wouldn’t be worth the investment based on the pennies in savings you would get.
kvar formulaOr they give a mathematical formula proving that the concept doesn’t work. Professor Umpchuck says…based on this theory power savers won’t work. Or Fred the new YouTube video master decided to test the powersaver out in an improper application also not knowing too much about the product or the technology behind power factor correction.
Today, I am here to tell you they are wrong. Many said Leonardo da Vinci’s designs of the ornithopters, (the first helicopter, and parachute in the late 1400‘s) wouldn’t work. But when tested correctly- in actual fact they do. kvar definition & calculationMany people also thought the world was flat, not round also. My point with this being, there are many many people out there that say things don’t work, can’t work, will never work. Their only purpose is to keep things from progressing and are focused on stops & dead ends. These people are the skeptics or the complainers of the world.
If you go back and look at those sites, they don’t recommend anything that works, all they do is tell you what doesn’t work. Their sites are full of stuff that they think are scams. Usually when you run into someone in life like that, you think, “This is someone who can never be made happy=Professional Complainer”.
Professor Umpchuck KVAR CalculatorThere are those out there that no matter what, their job in life is to complain and make things wrong. I am sure you know someone like this already. And you usually don’t want to spend much time with him/her if you do! Every holiday season, if this person is in your family, I am sure you are NOT jumping for joy that you get to spend YOUR holiday time with him or her.
It is up to you to push through the complaints, false information and downright lies and shed the light of truth onto the scene. But how do you do this?
The above questions and answer scenario are actual dialogues I have had with customers to help you in your future sales presentations.
In correct application, many many of our Electric Saver 1200 users are getting results- a drop in actual kwh usage. The device works. We offer a full 1 year satisfaction money back guarantee to all our customers to ensure that all customers get results and are HAPPY. Unconditionally, no matter what. If you don’t do this, you should. The fact is, not 1 of your customers will ever be upset with you if you get them results and save him/her & all their family/friends money on their monthly power bills.
The ONLY way you get a bad reputation is if you don’t get results for your customer, if you don’t save them money on their power bill. There are ways you can get positive results for your customers (based on the best installation methods we discussed in earlier articles) and there are ways you can get no-results for your customer.
Make sure you are installing the power saver based on the “At the load” Instructions and distance from your power company’s meter. The more distance a motor has between it and the power company’s meter, the more results you can get for your customer.
If your customer doesn’t have alot of distance between their motors and the power meter, their results will not be as good as their neighbor’s because their home doesn’t have very much wasted energy.
For example, if you get paid to clean up spills on the floor…If there is no spill on the floor to clean up, you can’t clean up a mess that doesn’t exist. That would be equal to getting no results for your customer. If they don’t have some distance between their power company’s meter and the motors in their home (Air Conditioner, Heat Pump, Pool Pump), or if they simply do not use very much energy with motors, your customer will not be able to obtain results with your product.
It isn’t that the KVAR power save device is a scam, it is that the home doesn’t have a huge energy waste problem that some houses do. And you can’t correct a problem that doesn’t exist. You cannot get results if there is no problem to correct in the first place.

Truly listen to their skepticism and concerns, because they are giving you the opportunity to handle the negative information/doubts/concerns they have been given and turn them into believers. Show them the way and they can help their friends & family as well.
Shine the light of truth on the scene, prove that your KVAR power saver device works and is NOT a scam and your customers will send you more referrals than you can handle. I am not kidding!
Millions of people are in need of your help at this very moment. Help them with your product and everyone wins!
Some say that power factor correction doesn’t work or isn’t worth the investment. But those that say this are usually basing their opinion off of mathematical formulas and not actual test results. Well, here’s power factor correction put to the test and in a big way. This is a 3rd party verifying the workability of the power factor correction product.
New York Power Authority
New York Power Authority tested power factor correction devices and the results were amazing!
Here’s a section of NYPA report: (results of their test site)
“The energy savings of the “At Load” system will be approximately 30,000 KWH annually, or approximately equivalent to the output of a 27.5 KW solar array. The cost for that solar array at current prices would be approximately $206,000, or over ten times the cost of the power factor correction system. Tax credits on the solar array would be over $60,000, or more than three times the cost of the entire power factor system. The 15 month return on investment for the power factor correction system includes no public subsidies or tax credits of any kind.”
Is a Power Factor Correction System more cost friendly than a Solar Array system?
Based on the results above, the answer is an astounding yes! The PFC system is 1/10th the cost of solar and return on investment for the product is less than 2 years. This is without any tax credits taken into account. Factoring in cost of system verses return on investment, power factor correction systems save YOU more money. You pay out less for the equipment and you receive your return on investment much faster.
Does Power Factor Correction Equipment Create Energy like Solar?
Granted Power Factor Correction doesn’t produce energy like solar does. Power factor correction equipment corrects losses on your property making your property’s motors/appliances/and equipment more energy efficient.
But, if you are looking to save money and energy without shelling out thousands of dollars, PFC equipment is definitely a viable investment for your home or business.
Does My Property have losses/inefficient motors and appliances?
Yes, if you have wiring in your home, you have losses. Even if you have a brand new home or brand new central A/C & Heating system, with power factor correction equipment, additional savings have been obtained for homeowners with similar brand new systems.
NY Power Authority also verifies that after your power meter, the customer also has energy lost on their premises that they are billed for but don’t actually benefit from.
“Of every three watts of energy consumed at the generating plant, only one watt reaches the customer’s meter. More energy is lost through inefficiencies after the meter, within the customer premises. “
What if I want to live off the grid?
If living off the grid is your goal, then a complete solar array system may be your best option if you have the funds to invest in this.
If you are looking to reduce your power bill, solar is still a viable option. By supplementing the power you normally use with solar panels, you can be billed less by your power provider.
Why should I save energy on my home or business?
From NY Power Authority: (for full NY Power Authority Report)- Click Here
“Any system that can reduce load, including load caused by distribution losses, will save approximately three times that amount of energy at the generating plant. Associated greenhouse gas production and emission of other pollutants will also be reduced proportionally.”
Saving money, energy and the planet doesn’t have to be difficult. By installing PFC equipment on every property you own, you are helping to reduce greenhouse gas production and emission of other pollutants planet wide. By saving money & energy on your property, not only are you improving you and your family’s well being but everyone’s the world over.
Conclusion: Why Power Factor Correction Equipment is better than Solar
Again Solar is a viable option to save energy but it is very costly. Solar Panels require maintenance and upkeep from the earth’s elements. Power Factor Correction Equipment is 1/10th the cost to produce the same comparable savings as solar. PFC equipment is set and forget technology. Simply install to motor and the equipment needs no maintenance.
Can I use both Solar & PFC Equipment?
To save even more money- USE both! Make your home or business as efficient as it can be with power factor correction units used in conjunction with a solar system. Not only will your solar system have to produce less, but you actually make your property as efficient as possible and actually use less energy.
