“Dirty Power” is a term used to describe the inevitable situation in which your home’s electrical system receives a flow of electricity different from what it “expects.”
Unless it has faulty or malfunctioning equipment, your utility company sends out a “clean,” smooth stream of electrical power. But by the time the appliances and devices in your home are through with it, that power is generally “dirtied,” either by upstream customers whose homes are in front of yours on the power grid, or (more commonly) by the things in your own home that make life easier and more enjoyable.
Appliances, electronic devices, even certain kinds of light bulbs don’t use power “as is,” or exactly the way it comes into your home’s system from the utility company.
They modify it.
They interrupt the flow, turning the power to the device or fixture on-and-off (sometimes many times a second) as a way of increasing efficiency and reducing the overall amount of electricity used.
But, while energy efficiency is generally a good thing, a consequence of all that manipulation of the electrical stream is the dirtying-up of the power supply in the home. “Noise” is created in the system.
Enough dirty power could create electromagnetic Interference, or even health-threatening electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in your home.
Here are five things you can consider doing to reduce the “dirty power” problem in your home:
You don’t have to live with a dirty power problem. Consider these five solutions, and consult your qualified electrician for ideas specific to the needs of your home and family. It’s great to “go green” – but sometimes, it’s even more important to “go clean.”
