Eco-Max Home, GW Energy
Energy saving in the home, GW Energy



That’s right; homes in the UK receive electricity at an average of 242v, but can be as high as 253v! Whereas most of our electrical devices are designed for the European market at 220-230v, so this leads to:

  • Oversupply of electricity
  • Paying for energy you don’t use
  • Shortened life of electrical appliances
  • Greater impact on the environment

Not only does this oversupply mean you are paying for more electricity, but it shortens the life of your appliances. By matching your voltage supply to your electrical appliances and equipment it is possible to make a substantial energy saving and prolong their life expectancy.

How much money am I wasting?

  • Washing machine always seems to be on?
  • Lights get left on?
  • Garden pond filtering all day?
  • Greater impact on the environment
  • Fish tank running a pump 24 hours?
  • Hairdryers whirring and hair straighteners being left on?
  • Leave your fridge or freezer plugged in all day?
  • Got a heated towel rail in your bathroom?

You will get instant savings by installing a maintenance-free Eco-Max Home Voltage Optimiser and you could start saving £100’s per year.

4-module-Surge enclosureDid you know that a lightning strike miles away can cause a surge that can damage appliances in your home ?

Modern homes are full of expensive electrical and electronic systems, yet these critical systems are at risk from the regular occurrences of transient over-voltage surges.

The average UK home has around £9,600 pounds of electronics consisting of Fridge’s, Freezers, TV’s, Satellite TV boxes, PC’s, boiler controllers, alarm systems, PV invertors etc which are all acutely susceptible to damage from overvoltage

Lightning strikes, and other power grid surges from sub-station switching and power cuts etc are the main causes of electrical device failure so protection against these over-voltages should be a fundamental part of our electrical system configurations.


Fitted quickly and easily by a qualified electrician next to your fuse board, it will provide you with peace of mind whilst it silently protects all your appliances. Don’t wait for the next power surge to damage something expensive like your widescreen TV before you act, protect your home with Eco-Max Surge today!
