We have too many electronic items to go around unplugging stuff any more and the @#$%@#$%#$ insurance company has pushed the home deductible to $2000, great if you are getting a roof replaced, but crazy for a lighting strike down the street.   So I'm looking at adding some whole house protection. 
 
Greystone offers one that installs at the meter for $60 install and $10 a month, includes phone and cable protectors and I guess free replacement if it takes a hit.  
 
Amazon has a bunch you install at the power panel, but they take up a 220V breaker (2 spaces) and that would just about finish off my box.  
 
Just wondering if anyone here has gone either way and had comments on the way you went. 
 
Thanks.

We've tried both. Over time, the surge protector installed at the panel will cost less. It is supposed to be equally effective. We've installed them in two houses. The most recent install was $315.00 (with the surge protector).


Hillary was a terrible candidate. Plain and simple.

From a comment from a friend, found one that is a breaker and a surge protector.  I've been wanting to put in a sub panel anyway, so I may go that route.  Will still have to find something for the cable and the phone, but having it do both functions will same me some space.
