STETZERiZER® Filter Installation
STETZERiZER® Filters are very easy to install on your own. Follow these instructions to maximize filter effectiveness.
The average home – 2 televisions and 1 computer – needs about 20 STETZERiZER® Filters to effectively clean up the electrical environment – but remember, this is just an average. The number of STETZERiZER® Filters needed to effectively clean up the electrical environment in any particular home will vary based on the number of electronic devices used in the home, and is NOT based on the square footage of or the number of rooms in a home. If you use an above, or below, average number of electronic devices in your home, you may need to install more, or fewer, filters to reduce dirty electricity to safer levels.
Follow the instructions below to estimate the number of STETZERiZER® Filters you need to install in your home. We recommend starting with 20 STETZERiZER® Filters, as well as a Microsurge Meter to help you find the best places in your home to install filters.
Note: Many homes may not have enough open outlets to install the number of filters needed to clean up the home. If this is the case, we recommend purchasing several power strips – any standard power strip from your local hardware store should do the trick. Then plug your electronic devices into the power strips, and install filters in the power strips as per the instructions below.
One filter should be installed in the outlet or power strip where each of the following electronic devices is located:
- Hair Dryer
Two filters should be installed in power strips where each of the following electronic devices is located:
- Personal Computer
- Laptop Computer
- Inkjet Printer
- Fax Machine
- Personal/Home Office Copier
- Entertainment Center (TV, VCR, DVD, Stereo, etc.)
Three filters should be installed in power strips where each of the following electronic devices is located:
- Laser Printer
- Large Office Copier
One filter should be installed in an outlet on each wall of the rooms you spend the most time in, especially bedrooms. Other rooms where this should be done may include your living room, kitchen, den, etc.
Two phases of current are used to supply utility power to your home: A phase and B phase. One filter should be installed in an outlet on each phase of current as close as possible to the main electrical panel in your home. Most homes will have one electrical outlet dropped down directly from the main panel; installing a filer in this outlet will take care of one current phase. For maximum effectiveness, call your local electrician and have him or her drop another outlet down from the panel on the other phase, then install a filter in that outlet as well.
When these directions are followed, a sufficient number of STETZERiZER® Filters should be installed to effectively clean up the average home.
