Except that most transient suppressors are shunt mode and NOT
directional.. A shunt whole house suppressor will suppress overvoltages
originating within the house.
OTOH, if it's a series mode suppressor (i.e. some sort of LC filter) it
will be directional.
So the question is, what sort of whole house overvoltage protector is it?
