When the green “its operating fine” led stops glowing. Or it gets hit by lightning, in which case the little green light will also likely cease to glow.

Since I am in no way anywhere near Houston I would have to go on line or call a Houston area store to find the answer to this question. Being a firm believer in cutting out the middle man I would suggest that "jim" perhaps could find a Houston area store to ask this question of. Go to the source as it were. Good luck!

I would check on-line first on the store's in your area, and then call the store before going. Also on a Square D box there are 2 different panels, this one did fit my panel you need to get the information on the panel.

That's bit of loaded question. Lightning strikes can vary in "intensity"/"strength" based on numerous factors. The amount of energy a nearby strike has will have complete influence on what happens in your home's load center and downstream electrical devices. That said, this item is an excellent, fast install device that offers very good surge suppression. By the very nature (pun, i suppose) of lightning, there's no guarantee that various breakers in the panel won't also trip resulting from a strike, nor can any manufacturer promise that nothing can ever be damaged. The effect of a lightning strike can be mild or catastrophic, but this will offer essential protection to greatly increase your odds of equipment survival. As others have suggested, the green LED on the face is supposed to indicate that the surge device is still healthy and ready to offer continued protection. Reminder, "surges" and "spikes" don't just happen from lightning, there are many power disturbances that can happen from utility company routine operations or mishaps. I'm a 28 year veteran in electrical contracting, and have seen a lot.

I have two questions. Before installing the device should the breaker for the entire house be shut off ?

Asked by JT January 28, 2018

When accessing any enclosure where live electrical parts are exposed and when you will be performing a procedure that requires you to install a part onto the live surface, you should first de-energize the exposed live parts. Yes, turn off the house main breaker or disconnect before opening the panel. If the panel that the part is going into is the main service panel for the building then it is OK to run the white wire to the ground buss since the ground and neutral busses are common. If the panel is a sub panel then the white wire goes to the neutral buss.

Call me lazy, but I'd like to be able to verify the green light is lit without opening the panel....

You should be able to see the green light without drilling any holes. Try knocking the tab out of the panel cover where the breaker is located.

Pruchased 2 since I have 2 panels. Breakers arrived when expected. easy to install. So easy I went ahead a installed a couple more for a friend. took 10-15 minutes to complete 2 panels. I won't know how well they work until the next lightning strike. Last lightning strike cost me several thousand dollars. Hopefully these will help.

Pretty sure it saved us from a lot of damage
South Florida. Had lightning strike my power pole this afternoon. So far I've discovered it blew out a power supply for my modem and an LED light fixture in the garage. I installed one of these SPDs last summer. It's cheap. It's easy to install if you have a little knowledge on residential electrical hardware. As title suggests, I think it saved us from a lot more damage. There's no way to know for sure, but I'm pretty confident it's true. Best part - the SPD is still alive in my panel.

I installed one of these in my load center and another in my in-laws. It's easy to install and provides surge protection for your entire home. Just make sure you install it in the first two breaker slots so the surge is diverted to ground before it reaches any of the other circuits.

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.)

Very easy to install
A surge protector was suggested by the furnace repair guy.I contacted Wi. Public Service for information. This one meets Wi. code. It quickly snaps in and one wire to ground. Install it as the top breaker and keep the pig tail short as possible. Now my house is protected. I also use surge strips as recommended for more sensitive electrinics
