It does, but if it kicks in and cuts off too many times, it will eat in to battery life. Moreover my two refirigerators and one TV are not connected to it.

Guys, can someone suggest a good voltage stabilizer that can be connected to the mains for the whole home? For the past several months we are getting a very stable voltage of 250 V. Points that are connected show 230 V, but the others are 250. Even the digital meters they installed sometime ago confirm this. I am worried somthing or the other may get fried one of these days.

Barring the two Acs, I would like to connect everything - including the Luminous inverter - to it. Brand, cost suggestions are welcome.

Earth can not be a problem for our entire complex and also the adjoining one.
