The first floor of our house is about 40 years old. The 2nd floor is
18 years old. Almost all of the electrical outlets on the first floor
maddening, stress-inducing effect when anything is plugged into them.
Someone said this is caused by a strong electromagnetic field. I can't
explain the sensation, but immediate stress/anxiety sets in when
is plugged in. Also, our UPS battery backup has a built-in "Building
Fault" light, and all the outlets that cause this stress also fail the
wiring test. Now, upstairs, everything is great and none of the outlets
Can somebody offer any clue as to what might be the problem, and where
begin looking/working? If we did get an electrician, would they think
were crazy if we told them what some of the downstairs outlets were
us? BTW, only a couple of people in my family can "feel" the effect of
bad outlets. Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
