You got a cite from competent authority for that? There's nothing
electrical that differs in this unit from a standard thermostat. The
unit just pretends the temperature is a little different than it is. The
A/C turns on and off EXACTLY THE SAME as with a standard t-stat, so
where is this magic electronics-destroying monster?

Be well - or at least have interesting symptoms!
