In a 'domestic' enviroment you will not find much inductive reactance to reduce the powerfactor, and in our area at least, they don't apply a pf penalty for residential. Unless a cost analysis indicates that your motor banks are costing you in terms of poor pf, ignore all adds of $ savings by purchasing thier gimmick.
