Power Surges Can Damage Sensitive Electronics In Your HomePicture this... your refrigerator and microwave are both using power from the same circuit. When the microwave is turned on it sends a dip in power along the circuit to the refrigerator. After the dip in power comes a surge in power. This fluctuation in power to the appliance where the problem occurs. Electrical fluctuations affect the sensitive circuit boards in today’s modern appliances. Plus, very sensitive electronics such as computers, televisions, and audio equipment can be particularly susceptible if proper measures aren’t taken to eliminate the problem.
