I set up a separate circuit for a computer in an apartment with 40A service. When the compressor goes on on a 5000 BTU window air conditioner on a separate circuit, the computer screen jiggles a little. While the effect on the monitor is bad enough, it is logical to assume the computer CPU etc. is seeing the same interference which may be an even worse problem.
Is this normal? Is there anything that can be done to prevent it. The computer and peripherals are plugged into a surge suppressor/ battery back-up.
