Have you ever experienced a power fluctuation? For most of us who are not technically-inclined, we don’t usually think or mind about power loads. But the power that comes in our house has everything to do with the bills we pay later. Interested? That’s what I thought.
Definition of power fluctuation
To put it in a layman’s definition, “power fluctuation” occurs when the voltage in your house or any place that uses electricity begins to fall or rise, meaning there is an inconsistency in the flow of electricity.
For example, you use your air conditioner, DVD player and TV at the same time. Then you noticed that your lights flickered a bit. That is a sign of power fluctuation.
How about during a storm, you notice that before the power outage, your lights blinked along with your other appliances? You thought it was weird? No. Again, that is a sign of power fluctuation.
Power fluctuation might cause damage to appliances
Maybe most of us might think that it’s just normal. Yes, it is. Because we only depend on our power supplier and our power supplier only depends on power plant. That is why there is nothing we can do but to deal with it. But did you know that power fluctuation might cause little to serious damage to our appliances especially to sensitive ones like our computers and televisions? And that is something we shouldn’t be dealing with. Like what my Mom said, our appliances should be treated as an investment. So why just sit and let your appliances be damaged when you know you can do something?
Use Automatic Voltage Regulator
One of this is through the use of Automatic Voltage Regulator or most commonly known as AVR. An AVR controls and limits the voltage going into a device or load. It is designed to automatically maintain constant voltage levels our appliances are receiving. AVR regulates input voltage for a stable electrical output. And through that, it also prolongs the usage life of an appliance. Perfect to be used especially with one of the most sensitive appliance in our household and offices, our personal computers. Since computer chips are very delicate that even a small power fluctuation could damage its hard drive, we need AVRs. Imagine the big hassle it would create if your computer crashed?
So now, who says our appliances couldn’t have a life saver? There will be is no reason to regret buying expensive and quality appliances because of our fear of power fluctuation. With Meiji Automatic Voltage Regulator, our investment is in good hands.
