> Occasionally, 2 or 3 times a month, my shack computer reboots when my
HVAC system comes on. It's a heat pump system. Problem occurs summer and
winter. Outdoor compressor kicks on first, no problem. Blower comes on
half a minute later, PC resets. Nothing else in the shack is affected.
The shack is about 20 feet away from the air handler, and about 45 feet
away from the compressor outdoors.
You didn't mention whether you have any AC filtering or surge suppression.
If not, you might try this route first before buying an expensive UPS.
Take a look at Trip-Lite's ISOBAR which provides surge suppression,
filtering and isolation all in one package. Don't scrimp either; get a
good one. They have several models with various levels of surge
suppression. Get computer grade. You might want to get two, one for the
pewter & one for the Ham equipment.
When the lights "blink" here, my computer doesn't even know it! Everything
has to go completely down for more than a few seconds for the thing to
re-boot. Typical Power System switching has no effect.
