Answer: 
Yes it's designed that way. It's supposed to send the high voltage to ground/neutral instead of through the rest of the circuits.

Yes, this surge breaker is designed to protect your home's electrical system. The amount of protection is produces against surges from lightning strikes and power company surges is listed in the specs (the more joules, the better the protection).

Can I install one on each side on a 120/240 volt panel?

Can I install one on each side right after the main breaker in order to increase protection?
In that case the power would be passing trough both before reaching the rest of the breakers.
Thanks

Answer: 
This protects both phases. I don't know that adding two will increase protection. It likely would just be a waste of money and spots in your panel. The way this works is, if it detects a high enough voltage it sends the current to ground. Electricity will follow path of least resistance. So, a direct link to ground will be far less resistance than following the rest of your wiring. Adding another isn't Read More

It also doesn't matter where on the bus you install this. You'll get the same protection regardless. Read Less

Answer: 
One HOM2175SB mounted as close to the incoming of existing Homeline load center is sufficient to protect the downstream branch circuit breakers in that load center; using two will not increase overall surge current level. Using point-of-use surge devices are also suggested, to provide 'cascading' protection.

What is the Joules rating? You indicated it protects most of the electrical system but not all solid state equipment. What joules rating do you recommend for solid state equipment?

Answer: 
Joules rating is not the first thing you should look at for surge protectors. More importantly you should look at peak current rating and let though voltage. This one has a peak current rating of 22.5 thousand amps, and a let though voltage of 700v L-N and 1500v L-L. The higher the peak current rating and the lower the let though voltage the better. This type of surge protector will protect your Read More

This type of surge protector will protect your appliances and make it easier for the plug-in/outlet surge protectors to do their job protecting your more sensitive electronics.
Think of it this way in the event of a car wreck, I want both airbags and seat belts.
BTW I like APC Model # P11VT3 as my plug-in surge protector.

The web site states 930 joules, but my spec sheet that came with the surge protector states 900 joules. So far, so good. But there's no way to tell if a surge protector has worked...you can only know when it doesn't!
Home Depot also has a Leviton whole house surge protector (Model # R00-51110-SRG) on its web site that specs out at 3400 joules. I've also seen Belkin component surge protectors that plug Read More

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Install This product is very easy to install. Just follow the enclosed instructions which are very clear. The device snaps into place just like a 2-pole 220v breaker. The issue is if you have room in your panel for the device. If not use Murray MH-T tandem breakers, which give you two beakers in a 1-inch width to replace the normal 1-inch breaker , which only has one breaker. Be sure and check which style breakers are OK for your panel. April 10, 2012
