Protecting Your Appliances from Surges and Other Crap on the Power Lines
Posted 18 May 2008 - 07:27 PM
I have heard of whole house surge protectors being destroyed by lightning, along with all of the equipment - what is advised for protecting appliances, such as my Frigidaire front load washer, fridge, and a/c units?

Well, at least back here, there are no legal regulations against using any appliance on an extension cord as long as the current handling capacity is sufficient, and care is observed to not damage the cords. Don't know for sure, but over there, you use half the voltage and double the current mostly so it puts more stress on all connections.
