    it's VERY common here as most houses are older than 100 years.

    Electric Co will come out and place a Surge Protector on that Line to Home for $30.00 a 1 time Fee - which is Good
    for Large Spikes .
    studies have shown it is good for ONE spike, even if it reads "good" afterwards it should be replaced. The question is, did it handle a surge?

    They say that the Pole Transformer somewhat - Controls Surges like Lighting Strikes . Read ( Huge ) but all the Others get through .
    what they say and what is reality is very different.

    Lost all the Equipment 1 yr. ago . Believe Me it Hurt and the Insurance Companies want to Rape You .
    Spent about 3 months Down - as the Electric was Toast also , Plus Complete Rip Out , Gas Line etc. - Lost a Month
    just getting Good Help .
    Perhaps you have the wrong insurance, and gas line....

    As I have No Lic. for any of this - back in the Day - one wasn't needed ..
    Today isnt "back in the day". I dont care if you're old or young. Become legal and updated educationally.

    seriously dude, slow down. Type out your thoughts in complete sentences and use FULL WORDS, stop abbreviating everything. Im getting a headache trying to read this crap.

    also, at the lower right you will see three buttons. [post quick reply] ~~~ [Go advanced] ~~~[cancel]

    go to [go advanced] type in your thoughts and then hit [preview post] ~~~ this will give you a chance to read your post BEFORE you post. That will save everyone a big headache and you won't sound like certain members that shall remain nameless {corny}

    Anyway the idea of power spikes or surges damaging equipment is just bizarre. All equipment is made with a +/- range for electrical needs because while the o.p is possibly retarded power does fluctuate and this is known as "power quality" (look it up) and manufacturers know it and design equipment accordingly. If you need a perfectly stable power supply because you work in a lab or whatever there is equipment you can buy to maintain it but to my knowledge nothing in the HVAC industry is that sensitive and HVAC equipment is certainly tougher than a TV or laptop which I don't see bursting into flames on a daily basis. This whole thing has the same ring of untruth as those junk emails about Obama secretly trying to sell Idaho to ISIS or Canola oil causing tumours.

    Merged threads.

    The AOP forums are for people to ask questions about their equipment. Not for general ranting.
