Default Whole house capacitor

OK, TO RAISE THE POWER FACTOR, THE THING IS CAPACITORS. MY THOUGHT IS THIS WHEN IT COMES TO THE HOMEOWNER IS SINCE THE REFRIG COMPRESSOR MOTOR HAS A CAPACITOR AND THE AIR CONDITIONER HAS A CAPACITOR. HOW MUCH WOULD YOU REALLY SAVE BY INSTALLING A WHOLE HOUSE CAPACITOR. I REALLY DONT THINK IT WORTH IT. WORKED FOR THE UTILITY ComED IN CHICAGO , RETIRED NOW. I WAS A CONSTRUCTION ELECRICIAN IN SUB STATION CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTANCE, NOT AN ENGINEER. SO TELL ME AM I WRONG?
