Another thing you might consider, unless it's already taken care of, is to
make sure all power conduits and signaling conduits are running parallel to
each other. I have a problem with that in my (relatively new built) house.
Here they are far apart and make up a large frame antenna with the result
that close by lighting induce large voltages between the 120 V receptacles
and the phone receptacles, something no surge procetor in this world can do
anything about. I have to put a surge protector at every telephone, TV,
Don't repeat my mistake.
As the phone, cable and utility is entering the house at about the same
place it would have been a (rather) easy thing to have had all cables to run
in parallel minimizing the area between them. That would have saved a few of
my telephones and TVs before I added all these surge protectors (in my
case from Walmart).
Just remember, you should not (and I think you are not even allowed) to
put the phone and 120V wires in the same conduit. If nothing else you could
get sever crosstalk and a lot of noise on your phone line.
