          Easy to install HEPD50
          Recently added a HEPD50 surge protector and used two adjacent 120v breakers then marked wires for ease of replacement if need be. Was a rather easy job. Used wire insulation and a red marker to mark wires (see photo). Also used flush mount kit. Got both on sale.

            I had two service panels replaced and rather than paying the electrician around $600 each to install a whole house surge suppressor, I decided to buy and install them myself saving about $1000. The install was fairly easy by just following the instructions and took around an hour each. I also did the same for a neighbor. Highly recommend.

            So far so good. Product like this proves itself on demand and that demand, luckily, has not been there yet. But, we are so much more comfortable with these surge protectors installed. Brown outs during storms in our neighborhood always threatened electronics. So, we installed individual surge protected plugs on expensive appliances. Now that we have installed this whole house surge protector we have the whole place protected, even the breaker box in the garage now has one! The electrician was so impressed with these surge protectors, he headed to Home Depot to get them for his household. I would say that says a lot.

            Just a update on the HEPD installed Feb 2016. The large tree in front of our house took a lightening hit 8/8/18 which split the tree down the center. So far, all our electronics have checked our, the only thing that happened was a GFI tripped in the room where the hot tub is. I contacted my insurance company and they requested than I check out garage door openers and stuff all appears to be working

              Basically a Square D safety blanket for the whole house! Had this HEPD80 installed during my recent panel upgrade which is the perfect time for correct placement. Installed at the top spot of the panel on a dedicated 20A 2-pole breaker (QO220CP) as recommended. It lights up and looks great..fingers crossed it saves the day if I ever need it.

                This is a great product. It took 15 minutes to install to a 2 pole 20A breaker.I recently bought an Electric Car and was concerned about surges damaging the battery. Apparently, 80% of surges come from inside the house. I didn't want the car surging on non-surge protected household appliances.

                Sacrificial protection - is a good thing!
                Whole Home Surge Protection The leads are solid 12AWG and about 2' long out of the device. The box states, "Extremity durable against repetitive surges, Nominal Discharge Current 10,000 Amps". What this means is that when a near by lighting strike, or your electrical provider input voltage exceeds a specific voltage, this unit will short circuit. That short circuit should trip/fault the input protection, (breakers / fuses) in the fuse box. I'm using this unit to replacing one that was is service for ~15 years. The old one did its job faithfully; (it sacrificed itself on an 'event') and shorted, tripping the breaker, and prevented over voltage damage to down stream appliances. It was destroyed in the process (design intent). Installing it requires getting into the guts of your fuse / breaker box. If you are not comfortable working in the fuse box / load center, I'd suggest contacting a professional. 4 Wires to connect - Ground, Neutral, AC1 & AC2 You need to read the manual! Please do so. Took me about 20 minutes to swap it out. Basic tools are needed: get them laid out before you start (I don't like looking for things in the dark) Pliers (I like the slip joint ones for this task) to remove the old unit, You can use a flat blade screwdriver to install the units lock nut in the box Pliers to twist wires (if needed, depends on your breaker design) Cutter to trim the units leads Stripper for 12 AWG wire Screwdriver that fits you breakers Lights: work light, headlight, flashlight (remember the power will be off and it will be dark) MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF BEFORE WORKING IN THE BOX!

                Home Electronics Protective Device
                This is a great way add surge protection to your entire home. I was tired of buying new surge protectors for each area in my home where I have sensitive electronics. Like most families now we all have tons of devices that are venerable to power surges. This can be a DIY install but I would say that if you do not know what you are doing to call a pro. However if you are good with your hands you can do this easy. Remember to shut off the main and always treat any electrical wiring as though it is live. With that said install in straight forward. Pop out any 1/2inch knockout on the panel. From there you will wire this up like any other 220v line. Each black wire is hooked up to one leg on each breaker and the white hooks up to the natural bar. Dont forget to attach the ground wire to the ground bar. You are all set once thats complete. The module will have a status light letting if it has errors or is ready to be changed. Overall I would recommend this to anyone with a home that has electronics.
