Questions & Answers

What is the best location for its breaker

Asked by: Dan
It is best to tie to a breaker in the top of the panel if the panel is fed from the top. Tie to a breaker in the bottom if the panel is fed from the bottom. This protects all of the circuits from incoming surges.

I Have two AC units. They are three ton 14 seer. There are 2 breaker switches in my panel box, one for each unit. Do I need two surge protectors?
Asked by: Lea
No, wired into the panel correctly this will protect everything else in the panel (i.e. "whole house")
Answered by: Eddie

does installing this on one side of the panel box also protect circuits on the other side of the panel?

does installing this on one side of the panel box also protect circuits on the other side of the panel?
Asked by: Anonymous
yes. Both sides are served by this unit. A 240 volt breaker connects across both incoming phases.

My main breaker box is full, but I have space in the subpanel. Can I install the Type 2 surge protector in the subpanel?

Asked by: DIYdrummer
This answer will likely help someone else with the same problem. Many breaker manufacturers make "quad" breakers in many configurations. Eg. 15/30....15/40....20/30....20/40....20/50 etc. So if your panel looks full. Look for 2 smaller loads like 2-20 amp receptacle circuits and get the quad breaker(essentially 2 twin breakers stacked onto each other). And there you go 2 fewer spaces in most full panels. Never double lug your breakers. If you have no option but to double up 2 small light loads, then wire nut them together and pigtail them onto a breaker.

Whole House Surge Protector is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product, worked as designed I had one of these installed 2 years ago when I bought a generator. Then in November of 2014, some power lines nearby came down and caused a power surge through our housing plan. I saw 7 furnace contractors on our street that day. We had several neighbors that lost ALL their kitchen appliances as well as other electronics. My house came through relatively unscathed; the surge protector blew out as designed (see picture) and we lost 2 other surge protectors inside the house. Without all of those in place I'm sure we would have sustained major damage. Multi-tiered surge protection is recommended and in our case saved us a lot of money. I will never be without one again.

I bought and installed this along with its cable protection counterpart (CHSPCABLE). The installation was simple, but I have some experience. After install, we started having alot of modem failures and intermittent failures to our internet and phone. I assumed it was a faulty modem. Called cable provider, they sent out a tech. He immediately showed me the problem. The signal coming through the cable unit was terrible, after disconnecting the unit altogether, the signal went to being very strong. Problem solved. The tech then provided me with a bill for 2 hrs. of labor because the issue was with my equipment, not theirs. He also said that he sees this problem fairly regularly, and to pretty much steer clear of these contraptions. Contacted Home Depot and Eaton and was told the problem was my cable provider and not their product. I spent @ 40.00 for this add on plus the 2 hr. labor bill from cable company, which was to remove it because it is junk. Lesson learned, buyer beware, never again. If someone would take responsibility instead of "passing the blame" this would be so much easier to stomach.

Will never really know how good it is as you'll never know the intensity of the surge. Had to drill a new hole in electrical panel as mine didn't have a knockout close enough to reach 50 amp breaker. Breaker was installed at top of the breaker stack.

Straight forward install however, wire gage a bit small for 50 amp breakers. Had to crimp larger lug terminals to the braided wire ends to make it easier for my breakers to accept the braided wires.
