What does a Surge Protector do?
A Surge Protector is a device designed to control very fast high voltage transients or surges that are common in our electrical systems. Voltage transients, large and small, can damage electrical equipment instantly or will degrade the components on the circuit boards over time, resulting in shorter life expectancies of electrical equipment. Surge Protectors are basically an insurance policy against electrical transients caused by voltage surges generated within the home, lightning surges, and utility-related surge events.
Square D Home Electronics Protective Device, HEPD80
The Home Electronics Protective Device (HEPD) is designed to provide surge suppression at residential load centers. Square D brand Home Electronics Protective Devices (HEPDs) are compact and affordable surge suppressors designed to be installed next to residential load centers. HEPDs work together with surge protection plug strips to provide surge suppression for sensitive electronics. HEPDs reduce surges that might otherwise overwhelm plug strips and damage connected household equipment. HEPDs also provide surge suppression for important items such as washers, dryers, refrigerators, stoves, and lighting that plug strips don’t protect.
With an 80 kA Surge Current Rating, Square D brand HEPDs utilize high-energy suppression circuitry to protect household equipment from internally and externally generated surges. Each metal-oxide varistor (MOV) is individually fused with both thermal and overcurrent fusing. The HEPD has a limited warranty of five years with a $50,000 connected equipment warranty for residential applications.
Ease of Installation
The HEPD80 carries a NEMA 4X rating suitable for installing indoors or outdoors. Weighing less than two pounds, the HEPD80 is easily connected to any brand of residential load center and provides the customer a green status LED to ensure proper protection.

Top Customer Reviews
The surge protector will also help avoid spikes from an emergency power generator.
Most new furnaces, washing machines, clothes dryers, stoves, dishwashwers, microwaves and hot water heaters now have electronic circuit boards that are unprotected from power spikes. We commonly protect our TVs, DVD Players, Computers and other electronic devices that cost less than our major household appliances.
The HEPD80 fairly simple to install (if you have any electrical experience). FYI: This job is not for the someone that has no idea what they are doing (I am a journeyman electrician with over 25 years of experience).
I have installed several main panel surge protectors over the years. The HEPD80 has a very high rating (80,000 amps) for maximum surge amps. If you ever experience a surge this high, it would most likely be from a direct lightning strike and you will still have some damage. This unit would protect you as much as any other high end surge protector.
The HEPD80 has two green lights that tell you from a glance that it is operating properly.
If one (or both) of the green lights are out, you will need to investigate for a problem.
Problems could range from a tripped circuit breaker, you lost the incoming power feed or that your main electrical panel has taken a hit and your surge protective device did its job and is in need of replacement.
This is a fairly compact unit ... and best of all it is MADE IN THE U.S.A. (Yes, that still matters to me).
I highly recommend this product!
I thought about it and realized I had no surge protection to any of my appliances or most of my other things for that matter fridge freezers oven TV's ect...
We are rural and we have surges and lose power often plus I run a generator for backup that could surge too.
So I started researching whole house surge protectors it seemed like a no brainer to put one in for the money.
My local stores had a few smaller ones but Amazon seemed to have the best selection and prices so I chose this one because it had the specs I was looking for and it looked like a good solid unit for the price range I wanted to stay in .
I Installed this unit myself and it went great and was pretty strait forward .
I had to move my breakers around a bit do get this unit in near the main.
My box was almost at capacity so I bought some space saving breakers that put two separate breakers into one double breaker that uses only one spot in the panel to get me the room I needed for the new 20 amp 240v double pole breaker for this surge unit needs.
I wired this unit into a new 20 amp double poll breaker one black wire on each side.
I put this breaker as the first one down from the main breaker then I added the white and green wires onto my grounding strip in the box and that's it I'm done.
The unit had plenty of wire for my application in fact I ended up trimming all the wires a bit for the distance I needed.
It came with about 20" of wire and ended up being about 12-14" for me installed and from what I read the shorter the distance the better.Read more ›
