Questions & Answers

Do I need the Surge Suppressor supplied by the Untility

I have a QO Surgebreaker in my panel. I also have a utility supplied surge suppressor on my meter that was installed by previous owner. Do I need both ?
Asked by: Wayne
Typically the utility supplied suppressors only take off the "high level" surges to even things out some and they will not provide the level of protection needed for many of today's electronics, while the QO surge protector will provide a better level against surges that might make it past the utility supplied protector and damage your sensitive electronic devices. I've heard some utility companies are beginning to offer a meter-based surge protection for a monthly fee, if that's what you're referring to here, I would eliminate the utility-provided, meter-mounted surge protector and opt for the QO panel-mounted surge protector. If there is no cost to you for the utility surge protector to remain, I would recommend leaving them both. I can tell you that Rex Cauldwell (author of several electrical books for professionals, with whom I have no affiliation) indicates that utility supplied surge protectors are typically not sensitive enough and recommends a panel-mounted whole house surge protector regardless of what else may be in place.

Can I extend the neutral wire on the surgebreaker?

Only open space is at the bottom of the box, Neutral bar is at the top of the box. Can I add same gauge wire to the white surgebreaker to make it longer?
Asked by: Zoneshopman
No. Increasing the length of the white wire reduces the level of protection.

Will this surge protector work if main is shut off and running on external generator

Asked by: larrym61008
Yes since it is the load side of the main breaker. But normal home use generators are somewhat "dirty" without the very tight regulation of normal utility grade power. With the exception of lightning strikes nearby while operating on the normal electric utility supply, It is more likely that the surge breaker could operate during standby operations than when fed from the electric utility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple - Peace of Mind Very easy to install. If you are comfortable installing a breaker, you can easily install this whole house surge protector. It took about 15 minutes to install. I had to move two breakers down the panel so that it could be as close to ground as possible. Given the number of computers and electronic appliances (fridge, stove, microwave, water heater, dishwasher, furnace) installing a whole house surge protector is a lot cheaper than replacing appliances or having them repaired. (Note, I still have my surge suppressor strips in place ... just in case.)
