FAQ


What savings can I expect from the Total Saver?

This will depend on your individual situation and what types of equipment and setup that you have.
We have found the most efficient savings come when you use the Total Saver with air conditioners, pumps, LED lighting, fridges, freezers and anything with motors.


Does the Total Saver have a guarantee or warranty?

Yes, we have both. We guarantee at least a 8% saving or your money back and we have a 2 year replacement warranty.


How do I know that it will work?

We provide a money back guarantee of at least a 8% saving. When we assess you business and we don't think that you will make at least a 8% saving,
we will tell you straight away so as not to waste both our valuable time.

A sample of some of our customers are: Pascoes 18.6%, and a North Island Mad Butcher 19%. Pascoes was so happy with their savings that they have rolled it out to 17 stores nationwide.


What is the cost of the Total Saver?

This will depend on the size of your business, your average monthly power bill and your setup. Please ring us on 09 973 0974 for an assessment and
a quote for your business or alternatively please email us on wendy@thetotalsaver.com.


What would happen if the Total Saver broke down? Would it affect power to the rest of the building?

If it were to fail, because it's wired in parallel, it doesn't interfere with the supply of power to the rest of your business, so there wouldn't be any interruption to the operation of your business


What's reactive power?

Reactive power is the product of voltage and current when the two are out of phase; practically, it means that some power flows back from the load to the source, leading to heating losses and reduced overall transmission efficiency.


What's power factor?

Power factor is the ratio of real power to apparent power; apparent power is the vector sum of real power and reactive power.


How does this affect me?

A high reactive power, and low power factor, can mean that the power company passes-on charges from the transmission company in the form of higher 'demand charges'--a reduction of these are the easiest to calculate. Some of the more difficult quantities to calculate are a potential reduction in the costs of maintenance to equipment sensitive to low power factor, and the opening up of distribution capacity within the building.


Why haven’t I heard of it before?

The technology has always been available, but until now, it was mainly used by the larger power users as it was too expensive and uneconomical for smaller
businesses. We target small to medium businesses with power bills of over $1,500 per month to meet this gap in the market.

The Total Saver has only been on the market since 2011 and it has only been since November 2012 that we have really started to market the product
and let people know that it is available. We also don't have a big advertising budget which means that we can keep prices at a minimum.
