Having anything dirty in your home is something you don’t want to deal with, be that due to health problems brought about by drinking dirty water or the disgusting appearance of dirty walls. So why are you letting dirty electricity run rampant around your house?
Well, we’re guessing the answer to that is that you had no idea dirty electricity was a real thing until recently. So how can you get educated on the topic?
That’s where we come in. It’s time to take a peek at our guide to everything you need to know about dirty electricity!
But enough talk, right? Let’s jump into the thick of things.
What is Dirty Electricity?
Dirty electricity refers to a phenomenon where an electric current with a higher hertz than the 50-60 range travels along an electrical line built to handle only 50-60Hz currents. As a result, these electromagnetic waves spike outward from the line and travel through the air.
This process happens more often today due to the proliferation of devices we use today (from hair dryers to computers) that require more or less hertz than the 50-60Hz line provides. As a result, the electricity gets altered to meet those power requirements by rapidly switching power flow on and off. This disrupts the normal 50-60Hz flow, creating the waves that make up dirty electricity.
The Dangers of Dirty Electricity
So why should you care? Well, the electromagnetic waves that make up dirty electricity interfere with other electrical devices. This is because many devices aren’t built to deal with these sorts of fluctuations in energy.
As a result, they will suffer issues with performance and speed (like your blender acting sluggish or the light not turning on).
Dirty electricity also contributes to increased exposure of the human body to electromagnetic waves. Your body generates a form of electricity when it opens a membrane gate in your cells to change the flow of potassium and sodium ions in your blood. This is how one part of your body knows what’s happening in other parts of your body).
Excess exposure to these electromagnetic waves disrupts the body’s internal process. Scientists have drawn links to this and health issues like memory loss, fatigue, mental illness, headaches, and joint pain (among other things). This is especially dire as our more technology-focused society already faces a greater deal of electromagnetic pollution than any generation of humanity has dealt with before.
How to Reduce the Risk of Dirty Electricity
So what can you do to help cut down on the amount of dirty electricity you produce? Well, one good start is making sure to shut off all electronics whenever you aren’t using them. After all, dirty electricity can’t get generated and flow outward when there’s no process active to create them.
It’s also important to pay attention to the wattage of the different appliances you use and try to maintain an eco-friendly lifestyle. Trying to get devices that fall on the 50-60 Hz line (or getting a proper converter device) will help reduce your output of dirty electricity.
