My daughter & family has just moved into an old 50s style

Customer Question

My daughter & family has just moved into an old 50's style house, which they are gradually renovating. They had a new kitchen installed which includes an extractor fan over the hob. On a couple of nights this appliance has suddenly switched on at a higher rate setting than they had used. On another occasion their radio switched itself on by itself.
They are beginning to think their is some spooky reason for this.

Can you help

Hi LOL, no Ghosts.

The reason for this is a frequency or noisy electrical line for some reason.

You will need to install a noise filter in the main line to the kitchens power.

Or you could put them on each appliance to prevent this from happening. It annoying but I see this myself on a much smaller scale with sensitive electronics:-)

If you rate me as good service or better, the system here will let me schedule free follow ups with you so we can remain in contact until you have this ghost gone form your kitchen!

Have a great day!
