Wrong Home Voltage

Page 2 of 2  
Actually depending on the amount of correction needed there's a trick.
If you wrap a small strip of aluminum foil all the way around the toast so as to create a "shorted turn", the eddy current in the foil will correct the power factor.

As Horatio Caine sometimes says, "I did not know that."

Look, the utility company gets complaints like this all the time. They know that your meter is likely not calibrated and they have nothing to worry about. What you need to do is call the National Standards Bureau and order up a 5 lb can of 120 volts to keep your meter calibrated. Be sure and document calibrating your meter every 30 days. Then measure the voltage in your home daily for a 12 month period to establish a good baseline. Be sure and tell the utility company that you did this and they will be much more responsive.
