Frequently Asked Questions for ECO BOX


Can ECO BOX be installed in every home or business?

Yes, as long as you have a circuit breaker panel with breaker switches instead of old screw-in type fuses. Most homes use single phase; ECO BOX has systems for 100, 200, and 400 amp single-phase electrical panels.  Also, all businesses have a circuit breaker panel that will qualify for the energy-saving ECO BOX device. All systems are approved for both indoor and outdoor installations. For abnormal applications, proper sizing may be the superior method of installation.

Does ECO BOX works with 3 phase commercial applications?

Yes, systems are available for 3 phase 200 and 400 amp panel mount applications as well as for the more commercial applications that are often utilized in large induction motor assemblies. These larger 3 phase panel motors can generally have the ECO BOX installed at the motors’ disconnect or at the breaker panels but only after having trained electricians carry out an individual sizing of the respective motors. Using this exact science enables the commercial customer to achieve the fastest return on investment (ROI).

Will ECO BOX affect any of my appliances and/or motors and how they work?

Yes, absolutely, but only in a positive way.

Dirt and heat are the natural enemies of motors. The ECO BOX stores and accurately releases the power that is needed to allow the motors to function more efficiently, and by doing so, reduces power surges and the harmful effects from electro-magnetic fields. Also, the ECO BOX will stabilize the current which can help to prevent surges and spikes, protecting your home and business as well as all of your electric devices. The ECO BOX also reduces any heat from the wires which will therefore increase the life expectancy of any appliances and/or motors that you may have in your home or business so you don’t only save on electricity, you also save time and money because of the fact that you can increase the life of your appliances and/or motors.

Why is the ECO BOX "Green"?

PUSH ECO’s main commitment is being able to have a greener future for our planet and future generations. ECO BOX contributes to this commitment by making it a point that every home and/or business that installs the ECO BOX allows for this hope for a greener future.

Due to the inefficiency of power plants, distribution centers, and other factors such as losses in transmission through wires and transformers of electric networks, only 1kWh of electricity usage in your home and/or business will require for up to 3kWh of electricity production. However, by having the ECO BOX installed correctly, you will be able to save as much as 3 times on your electrical production level.

Remember: electricity is the most used energy source, and in its production we use foreign oil, coal, and nuclear power plants. By reducing on the actual usage of electricity, we will be able to reduce more than just the electrical production but also the usage of fossil fuel.

Climate change is an on-going global crisis and this is a solid fact whether we acknowledge it or not. Energy efficiency is a valued commitment that we all need to make — one that will be well worth the effort because of how the environment will be benefit greatly from the ECO BOX.

Why have I never heard of this product before?

The ECO BOX technology has been used since 1950 in all manufacturing industries, power plants, factories, water plants, etc. American households back then were not inclined to worry about the cost of electricity which would usually cost from 2 to 3 or even 5 cents per kWh.

Nowadays, American households are dealing with rates that go from 9, 11, 13, 15, and even 19 cents per kWh. People in New York City pay 23 cents per kWh while people in Honolulu Hawaii pay 24 cents per kWh. Having to pay electrical bills of as much as $40 a month, 10 to 30 percent savings do not translate so much as big dollar amounts, but once you are required to pay over $100 a month, the savings that you can get from the ECO BOX starts to make a whole lot of sense. These days, it seems that the more we need, the more we end up destroying our planet as well as our pockets.

How does the ECO BOX help save me money?

As the demand for power runs throughout your home and/or business, there is a non-productive current (heat) that has a tendency to strain your appliances as well as the wiring. The heat from this non-productive current is wasted energy that you are also paying for. Having the ECO BOX installed in your home and/or business, you can ensure that the power that comes into your home and/or business is optimized, allowing your appliances and equipment motors to operate more efficiently. The ECO BOX reduces the wasted electricity (heat) which in turn lowers your electrical consumption as well as your bill while also increasing the life of your appliances and motorized equipment.

By reducing your electrical usage by as much as 10 to 30 percent, you will automatically be able to save up on your electric bill. But your savings exceeds just the electrical bill as you will find that the ECO BOX helps to lengthen the life of your appliances. The ECO BOX also helps to protect any sensitive electronics that you may have in your home and/or business such as LED/LCD televisions, computers, and other digital equipment because the ECO BOX also serves as a surge protector by reducing machinery downtime, allowing industrial production to remain unaffected.

How does the ECO BOX work?

The basic principle to the ECO BOX is as follows:

Inductive loads such as electric motors, pumps, and compressors kick back unusable energy into the power system. This unusable energy materializes as heat builds up in appliances, noise on transistor radios as well as cordless phones, etc. The ECO BOX contains capacitors that absorb this unusable energy and recycles it into usable electricity that can be used by electrical appliances which, therefore, reduces your energy demand from your power company.

ECO BOX reduces the amount of power drawn from the utility by storing what would otherwise be lost electricity in its capacitors. Examples of inductive motors are air conditioning units, refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, dishwashers, disposals, pool pumps, irrigation pumps, vacuum cleaners, furnace blower motors, fans, etc.

The technology applied by the ECO BOX unit supplies the stored electricity back into your inductive loads which cause a decrease in your demand from the utility; when the demand from the utility decreases, your meter slows down because you are consuming less electricity. The idea here is that you have already paid for that electricity, so why pay for it and waste it when you can pay for it, store it, and reuse it again? The whole process behind this is called power factor optimization, and because the reactive energy is stored in the ECO BOX unit, there is no longer a need for it to be supplied to you by the electric company.

Now, power is no longer being pushed through your electric system only to be wasted within your facility; the power being supplied to your individual pumps and motors is as close to 100 percent efficiency as possible which results in a cooler distribution system where heat is no longer being lost in the form of watts. Also, this accounts for reduction in electricity due to the fact that there is no longer a need for excess power to be supplied to your home and/or business because the power is constantly being stored and recycled between the ECO BOX unit and your motors.

Depending on the rate structure of your electric utility, you may be able to save a substantial amount of money on your electric bill. Other ancillary benefits that you can gain by power factor optimization include: lower energy losses, better voltage regulation, and released system capacity. Motors typically show a higher starting torque and shorter start-up time, also increasing the life expectancy of your appliances.
