How does a whole house surge protector work? + Recommendations
I understand the concept of a whole house surge protector. I see most models tie into two breakers in the panel. What I don’t understand is how all circuits in the panel are protected. Can someone explain the science behind that for me?
Also, I’ve seen two different models:
1) external (to the panel) model that ties into two existing breakers -and-
2) internal model that actually clamps into the panel like a double pole breaker:
Is there an advantage of one over the other?
Any specific models you recommend? The one I linked to on Amazon looks fairly easy to install. I’ve installed 3 new breakers in my panel so I’m familiar with and comfortable working in the panel.
Thanks all for your help.
