This is so helpful and you guys are great!  I will tell my electrician to go ahead with whole house surge protector. Thank you! Margot  
what does this mean?
Thanks for the reassurance, everyone.  I've placed an order!  Everything is back-ordered so it will be a while, but I'll report back when I have it set up. cheers, Margot
