whole house surge protector
The whole idea of having one, is so that you have this warm fuzzy feeling that your home is protected. That means, if the instructions state to hook on the side of the panel, and connect in the panel to two non-tied 15amp or 20amp breakers, then do what the instructions state.
Just tell the wife, that just because it is on T.V., does not always mean that they are giving wise advice, same with everything she reads on the Internet. The best Whole house Surge protectors, are the ones that are placed following the instructions, but also are placed behind the meter, between it and the lugs in the meter panel.
