Surge Protectors: Whole House

Reviewed by:
Rosemary Thornton
Lightning may be fast but this surge protector promises to be faster. And with it, you can protect your whole house from lightning strikes and voltage surges. Response time is less than five nanoseconds (or stated another way, five billionth's of one second).

The Whole House Surge Protector is hardwired into your breakerbox and requires a good (and short) path to ground. Lights on the panel tell you that the unit is grounded and that it's working correctly.
