Power Filters (whole house)


Eddie Reed

Recommended Posts

Anybody have any experience with whole house power filters. Our entire house is Insteon and we are having a lot of switch failures (three ControlLincs and one relay link in the last month alone). I'm sure the problem is with the house power coming in and not with the switches themselves.

 

We used to just loose power in the past when there were problems, but they realigned the power grid for our area to include the local hospital (which they keep online at all costs).

 

Any help is appreciated.

I use an Intermatic unit but I think the Leviton 51120-1 is a better unit.

 

FYI not all surges come from outside of the house. Some can be generated internally. If you have a whole house filter installed have the electrician tighten down all of the neutral bar connections and the connections the the breakers themselves etc while they are in the panel. Also if your lights dim when a major appliance kicks in you may have other issues to address.
