  1. 800VA should be enough, but just know that the stepped sine wave that thing uses can cause degradation in your power supply and decrease efficiency

    wow I didn't research on that, what do you recommend I do?

    The thing is I'm getting this because everytime someone uses the shower heater, the PSU starts to make this static like noise but dissapears after it's turned off. A friend of mine told me its because the wall socket is not getting enough power whenever the heater is turned on. Any thoughts on this too?

    I think your friend needs to stop talking out his ass. If the cause was a brownout due to the heater turning on, you would be losing power most likely (less likely on 240V country, more likely on 100V country), and seeing all your lamps dim as well. Most likely it's just electrical noise from an out of code electrical network in your house. The UPS would likely be able to correct that due to the built in AVR, but it's not a true solution, since instead of destroying the PSU it's now destroying the UPS. The real solution to your issue would be to call an electrician and have them make sure your computer is on a different breaker line from the heater (which it should have been)

    Oh I see, so basically for now my UPS/AVR should work just fine, till I get a better one? or just call an electrician to check out my power socket?

    Electrician first, anything else is a stopgap. If you can't fix the wiring, you'll have to pick between replacing the UPS every few years or the PSU every few years
