Whole House Energy Management System
When it comes to electrical use, today’s home is much different than it was even a decade ago.
With rising energy costs and the use of electronics continuing to increase with no end in sight, our electrical systems need to be more efficient and at the same time provide better quality power.
Surges, spikes and electrical noise provide a very real threat to the appliances and electronic devices in our homes. There has never been a better time for a Whole House Energy Management System.

Powerworx™ e3 by Continental Power Corporation is a Whole House Energy Management System based on the same unique technology used for over 15 years in the Powerworx™ commercial product line. Powerworx™ e3 provides the best possible energy savings and Total Home Protection which includes three key benefits:
- Equipment Protection
- Electricla Noise Filtration
- Energy Savings
Powerworx™ e3 is like having an ELECTRONIC BODYGUARD for your home or business!
Powerworx™ technology provides Surge and Spike Suppression, a feature that will help protect and extend the useful life of your electrical equipment. A combination of the Powerworx™ e3 harmonic resistant capacitors and metal oxide varistors (MOV’s) give the home owner the maximum protection and peace of mind available on the market today. The external lights on the Powerworx™ e3 unit provide an easy visual indicator that the system is protecting your home.
Continental Power Corporation provides a $25,000 policy covering on the homes electronics and appliances connected to the electrical system when protected by the Powerworx™ e3.

For more details on this exceptional coverage provided at no cost to every residential user read the Warranty Card (PDF).
Electrical Noise Filtration
Powerworx™ e3 technology provides Harmonic Filtration which has become more important since the 1980s and almost mandatory in the 21st century due to the proliferation of computers, fax and copy machines and variable speed motors which are known as “nonlinear loads”.
“Nonlinear loads” ask for and use electric current in pulses unlike traditional electrical equipment. This pulse use of electrical current creates damaging noise, interference and heat.
Powerworx™ e3 provides energy savings by reducing the amount of power drawn from your utility with the use of specially designed harmonic resistant capacitors.
Powerworx™ e3 systems optimize your homes power factor thus reducing the amount of energy your homes motor loads use such as air conditioners, refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, dishwashers, pool pumps, vacuum cleaners, furnace blower motors, fans etc.
Motor loads (inductive loads) inherently require more energy to do their work compared to other electrical equipment in your home.
The Powerworx™ e3’s Power Factor Optimization significantly increases the efficiency of your motor load and stores wasted energy resulting in decreased demand and usage of electricity from your utility company. This can equate to cost savings of up to 15% for you, the homeowner. Actual results vary depending on the inductive loads found in the home.
