Answer: 
Connecting the SDSA1175 leads to a 2-pole, 15-30 ampere, branch circuit breaker is the recommended means of connection. Please confirm your installation with local authorities having jurisdiction to ensure no violation of local code requirements.

Answer: 
The IEEE published a book about surge protection that answers this question:
They “ recommend a minimum surge current rating of 20 kA to 70 kA
(8/20 μs) per phase for SPDs to be used in residential or light commercial service
in low or moderate lightning areas.” (1)
So for your house, 36kA is good.

lastly is it more proper to hook the unit to my 20 amp 220 volt circuit breakers to protect one device, or to hook it between the main 100 amp breaker and breakers to protect all the circuits?

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good whole house surge protector Installed this whole house surge protector to help to protect all electrical devices in a home from electrical surges after having some hard wired electronic devices get destroyed in the past by electrical surges. Electrical surges can originate external to a home from electrical disturbances generated during bad weather or from a utility company or internal to a home from large appliances operating. This whole house surge protector makes it possible to provide surge protection for all electrical devices and electronics in a home through using one protection device including for devices that are hard wired that can't easily be plugged into in-line surge protectors such as lights and major appliances, etc.. Noticed an immediate difference with this surge protector installed with the improved operation of a digital to analog cable TV converter that no longer resets each time a furnace operates. Before installing this surge protector a digital to analog cable TV converter reset each time a furnace operated even with the power supply for the digital to analog cable TV converter plugged into a quality multiple MOV surge protection device designed to protect computers. This surge protector is a good investment to help protect electrical devices and electronics throughout a home including LED light bulbs, occupancy detectors, computers, televisions, appliances, etc. from being damaged or destroyed by electrical surges. Was able to install this surge protector above a bottom main power entry cable in a 16 circuit breaker box used in Mobile homes by using a 1" to 1/2" reducing washer and a 1" knock-out hole in the top of the circuit breaker box that is intended for a top main power entry cable. This whole house surge protector is an ideal compact physical size and the only model that would fit dimensionally in my application. The single green LED on this surge protector provides a simple indication that this surge protector is operational and does not require replacement. December 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a wonderful product with a great price tag. The product you offered online had the best bang for the buck for the average hard working person today. The features offered were the best value. November 5, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Beware TYPE 1 Please note that "TYPE 1" in the description means that this model is to be used if you have lightning rods. Otherwise "TYPE 2" should be used. Most surge protectors sold here are really type 2. Nowhere on the box did it mention which type it is. I found out I have the wrong type after I bought it in the store and installed it then saw the description on line. The unit itself seems OK and the install was easy. July 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Device I installed this at my new high efficiency furnace and it was super easy to install. I also installed their HEPD 80 at my main panel to cover the rest of my house. Works great and now i don't have to worry about losing my 10K furnace in the middle of winter. September 25, 2013
