Pepe, thank you for your reply!
I had actually recorded on DVR an episode of the television show "This Old House" from early 2013, where they were either showing or talking about whole house surge protectors. Unfortunately, that episode was deleted from the DVR by one of my children and I haven't had time to search past episodes of the show online. If I recall the episode I saw earlier this year never mentioned a specific brand or brands they recommended.
I sincerely appreciate your reply and will definitely read the full article you posted. Once again thank you for your help.
