Map shows the way for Voltis Home customers
Cutting energy bills for customers is boosting business for one Essex electrical contractor so impressed with the trial installation of a domestic voltage optimisation system that it has invested its own money in marketing the power saving solution to customers.Map Contract Services, based in Woodford, installed a Marshall-Tufflex Voltis Home unit in the home of an employee to assess its performance. The optimiser proved straightforward to install, taking less than an hour, and returned savings of more than 10 per cent as soon as it was turned on.
Map is now offering Voltis Home HD to all customers with a single phase electrical supply of up to 60A, both domestic, social housing and light commercial users. The company has invested in its own marketing material, backed up with information from Marshall-Tufflex, and already has a number of interested customers.
Company spokesman Jack Creed said, ‘We’re expanding the Map portfolio to include ‘green’ solutions to help reduce customers’ energy bills and had heard about domestic voltage optimisers. We compared several systems on the market and selected Marshall-Tufflex’s Voltis Home as our preferred choice. The system is much like an isolator to install – it’s very simple and took less than an hour.’
The system is suitable for all single phase electrical loads of up to 60A. For domestic users electricity savings of up to 18 per cent are possible. This equates to as much as £150 per year for the average three bed semi occupied by a family of four people, based on today’s average electricity prices.
Voltis Home is available in two versions – a standard unit for incoming voltages of up to 243V and an HD version for voltages of up to 253V. Map has chosen to install only the HD version, regardless of incoming voltage. Hornchurch Electrical, Hornchurch, supplies the units.
