To R. Proffitt

One of other options I am considering is a "Whole House Surge Protector".

That way it would provide more protection to all appliances, overhead electric garage door, as well as for all electronic items and computers in my house.

The type I am talking about connects to the circuit breaker box to provide whole house surge protection.

That is another reason why I am asking for people's professional advice regarding high quality individual surge protectors before I make my final purchase decision(s).
