I am attaching a link. I have my doubts about this product. It is suppose to correct the pf at your home caused by the AC, fridge, (motors) etc. I can see the theory but not the application because it doesn't seem to me that true power oppose to apparent would be that big of a "factor" in a home. I could be wrong.

It won't save the homeowner money.

Search this forum for several discussions on this subject.

Just by reading the advertizing literature you immediately know it is some form of snake oil salesmanship.

What the others said, plus apparent power is not a big "factor" in a home because the typical meter used to measure the true power in a home does not register the apparent power. Only commercial and industrial customers that are equipped with metering equipment that measures power factor and are charged a penalty for poor power factor have much to lose by not correcting it.
