integrating electrical surge protector into wall?
I have a "whole house" surge protector installed inside my 200 amp electrical panel. Fortunately, it has never been needed, but if it ever blows, I can easily replace it. Picked it up at a local electrical supply house, and I think that it was less than $30 bucks.
Of course, it doesn't protect anything through the phone line and I'm on cable for Internet, too, but I have a Back UPS Pro 650 surge protector and battery backup unit for my computer.
Can't get enough surge protection. Had a neighbor's house set on fire with an electrical surge through a nearby lightning strike on a power line transformer a few years ago.
