Types of Dirty Electricity
Brownouts are caused by overloaded circuits and result in a reduction of power. These can even be intentionally started by power companies during peak demand. It is important to have a power conditioner that can handle lower voltage frequencies. Brownouts are one of the top reasons people experience power issues with their computers.
Line noise is expressed in terms of decibels and different power conditioners are able to filter out different amounts of noise. Be sure to get a power conditioner strong enough to filter out the appropriate amount of decibels coming through your line. Electromagnetic interference and Radio Frequency Interference (EMI/RFI) are classic causes of noise on the line. Line noise can also be caused by electrical motors turning on and off, poorly connected electrical poles, radio transmitters, and lightning. This is why line noise often gets worse during a thunderstorm. It is important to protect yourself from line noise so that you can secure all your data transfers.
Surges and Spikes
Many homes experience frequent increases in electricity coming through the circuits. An electrical surge only lasts a short time while a spike lasts longer and goes throughout the entire electrical system. A spike is most often caused by lightning strikes and is more severe than a surge. An electrical spike can completely destroy your electronic equipment.
