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’m not a handy person, so bare with me if I’m asking a stupid question or if I phrase it incorrectly.

I currently live in a house that doesn’t provide enough voltage to all of my appliances. For example, if I have my ac running at the same time as my vaccuum and hair dryer the power goes out. Will this help?
Asked by: Girl
No. This device protects your home from power surges to your home from line sources beyond your control. I believe you are tripping the breaker of the circuit you are plugging your vaccumm into. This means that you are drawing more amps than the breaker is rated for, more than likely 15 or 20 amps.( its written on the breaker you have to reset). You may have a faulty appliance or breaker, but chances are your AC and other devices on the circuit are drawing close to the rated amps and your vac's draw trips the breaker. Try plugging the vac into another outlet that is on another circuit, hopefully it's breaker will NOT trip. You could check the draw of your AC, but that takes a little know how and an inductive meter (it should be marked on the unit). I know it may not be possible, but AC's should be on a dedicated circuit...all by itself.Note: typical AC's 5K to 20k BTU's can draw 8 to 15 amps or more) Try to determine what devices are on which circuits and mark the panel as such. Spread the loads out if possible. Good Luck.

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
To correctly install this breaker is must be hooked p to a double breaker which means that the breaker attached to both hot strips in the breaker panel. Just like any other 240 volt breaker you might have in your panel such a maybe a dryer breaker oven etc. It covers both 120 volt and 240 volt lines in the panel installed.

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
You could install in sub panel but this will NOT protect the main panel as it is down line from the main panel and any breakers on the main panel would not be protected from spikes in electricity.

Whole House Surge Protector is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 82.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchase Peace of Mind! I sleep better knowing that my whole hose is protected from surges, both internal and external. Those 2 little green lights give me peace of mind! This was an easy install, as long as you are comfortable opening up your circuit breaker panel box. It's not any more difficult than adding or replacing a circuit breaker. Instructions are clear, as are WARNINGS! Note: This will require 2 adjacent open positions for a new 50 amp breaker. If you do not have the space, or cannot re-arrange breakers, it's a bigger job, and you should consider hiring a pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple installation, but ... This is easy to install, but if you install it directly into a knockout hole on your service panel, it will stand off about 7/16" from the surface your panel is mounted to. This leaves the surge protector vulnerable to an inadvertent push against it, which could put a stress on both the panel and the surge protector. (The four screws provided are for mounting the protector to the board your panel is mounted to and then using conduit to connect it to the panel.) However, if a spacer is made that closely fills the gap between the protector and the panel mounting board, the protector can then be additionally supported and secured. Longer screws than those supplied will be required.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value This surge suppressor is a very good, high spec unit rated at 2800+ joules and 108 kilavolt/amp max surge.using a 50 amp breaker , but it will work with any service panel, and I used it in a Sq D QO 200 amp 40 space panel. It is about the best value for spec out there. The only gripe is that they used 14 gauge stranded aluminum wire for the units pig tale to hook up. This unit is not cheap, they could have spent $ .50 more on copper wire!!!. Stranded aluminum wire needs a sold compression type fitting to attach the wires to the neutral /ground buss bar and the breaker lugs. because they are so much larger than the wire. I improvised and used 14 gauge round butt spice connectors to attach the pig tales properly, because the stranded aluminum wire will mash out under proper tightening. Do not worry about the wire size for the 50 amp breaker , the 14 gauge wire does not carry any load and is internally protected under UL rules. Eaton should have used cooper wire or provided proper connectors to attach...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good specifications, compared to the competitors. Easy to install, with one gotcha. A 50A breake... Good specifications, compared to the competitors. Easy to install, with one gotcha. A 50A breaker, as recommended to be used with the surge protector, will not accept the small gauge (#14?) stranded wires of the surge protector. These large current breakers will only accept a #8 solid wire or larger. What I had to do was to add a couple of crimp sleeves that just fit over the surge protector wires and then fit the sleeves into the circuit breaker. There's now a good, solid electrical connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality product Don't be tempted to go cheap when protecting your electronics. A surge suppresser that plugs into a wall outlet is not big enough to stop transient spikes. With this one device your whole house is protected. Make sure you purchase the Ultra series. The micro and the max may not have the ampacity to stop a full blown power surge. I would also recommend installing a high end "monster" surge suppressor at your electronics to protect your equipment from any current that gets past the surge trap during a full blown power surge. I've experienced 2 transient spikes in the last 3 years due to bad weather. The first one destroyed my high end surge suppressors and all of my electronics. The second one destroyed my high end surge suppressors but not my electronics. Each of my high end surge suppressors cost more that I paid for this device.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Body difficult to mount. A little hard to install the body. After I got it through the knockout, I could not fit the service panel cover back on. So I had to put on a box coupler and a rigid coupler, after I had cut the wires it just reached into the breaker.Siemans Panel and Breaker. The 50amp breaker that Eaton recommends Siemens for me, could not screw down tight on the wire. Wire is between a 12-14 awg size, this could have been at least a 10awg. when twisting the stranded wire after stripping I found the strands breaking some. Make sure your 50amp breaker screws go all the way down for clamping these wires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protection at a Decent Price After recent electrical storms damaged about 1/3 of my home's electronics (cost to replace: $2500, so far), I had the electrician install an Eaton CHSP unit. Since I won't know how well it will work until my house gets zapped again, the theory of how it works is sound. The electrical surge (from lightening, or powerline problems) enters the home, looking for Ground. If this surge has to travel through your TV, Computer, Garage Door Opener, Microwave, etc..., to find it, it will--damaging the appliances in the process. Having a complete home surge protector gives any surge in current the most convenient pathway to Ground. The unit will sacrifice itself in the process, so after one such surge, the unit will need to be replaced. If you suffer from multiple surges in a short period of time, your electronics may be at risk. I wish I had one of these installed when I bought my house. With installation, it was ~$400: compared to the >$2500 I've spent so far replacing damaged equipment, it would have been worth it six times over!
