I would possibly look into using a GFI breaker(s) in the main panel and skipping the outlet style ones. The outlet style gets whacked by lightning all the time and I think the breaker style is a bit more robust. Even though the new ones with arc flash are out I would pass on those. The brushes in motors tend to false trip those often. I had one on my microwave after a kitchen remodel and had to swap it out as soon as the job was finished, it triped almost daily after break in.
