JonM Posted January 27 Share Posted January 27 I’ve seen others post about whole-house surge protection on these forums and I asked my electrician about it. Seems like they won’t help with a direct lightning strike (not sure anything will… would like to discuss lightning rods at some point in another thread) but supposedly they do help with surges from the grid, especially after a power outage. These units are sacrificial and fail upon surge. I installed one on each of my breaker panels today. Easy to do if you have 2 open breaker positions. I had 2 open positions on each sub-panel outside the house where the power comes in. Not sure if they work or not but it seems like (key words “seems like”) they can do no harm and are cheap insurance. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
