How to Handle an Electrical Problem that Has You Worried
[ad#block]Electrical Question: Since I moved to my apartment something is strange.
My fluorescent light is always glowing in the dark, even the switch is off, and I “just” want to use a fan.
And then 2 computers died in one week.
If I turn off all the circuits still every metal object has a static field, and there seems to be “power” in the air.
Annoying electric noise, can’t let me sleep.
Thank you!
