Product Overview

SurgePro AC surge protectors are designed for service entrance or subpanel locations. Each provides small, easy to install surge protection for the entire home or office. The protectors consist of multiple metal oxide varistors with internal thermal and overcurrent protection. An LED indicates the proper function of the protection elements. The THQLSURGE conveniently connects inside the GE Powermark load center, directly onto the bus, like a circuit breaker, providing direct protection for the entire panel and all attached loads.

Can I install this in the main box outside the house? Hoping to protect the ovens and other 220V equipment that is wired directly from there.

Whole Home Surge Protection Unit-Panel Mount is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems like a good unit The unit installed easily - just like installing a 2 pole breaker. The neutral wire is a bit short: barely reached the neutral block from the second 2 pole space in the panel. If it stands up it will be a very good purchase. It has a pilot light on the unit which shows through the small hole that I made in the panel trim so I will know when (and if) it is no longer functioning. Time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Installation Requires two open circuit breaker slots. Placed it as close as possible to the Main shut off breaker to enhance reaction time to surge. Reduced the white ground wire's length as much as possible to enhance reaction time to surge. Just be careful to not reduce the length of the ground wire so much that you can't connect it to the neutral/ground bus bar. Know it's working as long as the green light is on. Know that when the green light is no longer on that the unit will have to be replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy install! Our community had a real bad power surge and a number of homes lost big and small appliances. An electrician recommended a GE brand. After some research, we purchased this GE model. Installation was less than 10 min's and now we have peace of mind. Our electric panel had a slot for this which made it really nice. The green light indicator insures that it's working and functioning properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I didn't have enought room in my breaker box panel so I installed it outside of it by using a box from HomeDept: PowerMark Gold 125 AMP 4-Space 8-Circuit Indoor Main Lug Circuit Breaker Panel $17.00 Of course you have to bring the connections into this box. I've had this for 7 years and hav had the peace of mind that my whole house is protected. Previously I experience the loss of several devices in my home when unprotected. My local power company charges $9.95/month for a similar service. That comes to $119.40/yr. I figure my original investment of about $90.00 was well spent. Ofcourse, if you use an professional electrician, as you should if you don't know exactly what to do, you probably will be saving money in the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very straight forward installation, good price. This simple and inexpensive unit plugs in to two existing slots in a standard GE electrical panel. It took 10 minutes using a screwdriver and wire stripper. I was lucky to have two slots just beneath the main electric line input. Steps: Turn off MAIN power circuit to the whole panel/house. Remove main cover. Locate two open slots closest to the main input lines, ideally right next to the lines. This is so the surge hits the unit FIRST. Connect the unit into the slots (simply hook one end and push the other end into the tabs). Connect the ground wire firmly to the ground post. Done! Obviously be EXTREMELY careful not to touch by hand or tool the main input line assemblies as they are HOT! (And could kill you - Handle this job the way you would a loaded gun, with focus and care.... but it is a simple task a DIYer can tackle.) I feel better having the extra layer of protection from surges for the house, and will also have interior surge protectors for the delicate electronic items, with hopes this will protect the washer, dryer, fridge, freezer and air conditioner. Does it work? I don't know yet, but it seems to meet the basic criteria to do so.
