Complimenting our longstanding solar service we offer inverter replacements and repairs for all makes and models on Perth Solar Systems. The new inverters we supply are expected to last 15 years or so. We are finding that a lot of inverters we are replacing are around 8 years old. Reliability, especially with the fanless inverters, has come a long way since then.
For the hot conditions in Perth, we highly recommend the Goodwe inverters as we have found these to be the most reliable out of thousands of installations. We are happy to quote other brands if you so desire. We work with all major makes and models.
The solar panel converts light into Direct Current (‘DC’) electricity. The solar inverter is responsible for turning DC into AC. This is where the name comes from. It ‘inverts’ the electricity from DC to AC. AC is usable electricity that can be put to any typical purpose. As such, the role of the inverter is critical. Without it, there would be no point to the solar panel!
A solar inverter should last between 10 and 20 years. A solar panel is only as strong as all of the individual components, including the solar inverter. The better quality solar inverters will come with warranties of 10 years and up. If it breaks, you can simply call Formula Sun for top notch solar inverter repairs in Perth. Our inverters last 15 years +.
Both kinds of inverters will convert DC to AC. However, solar inverters are specifically designed for solar panels. In contrast, regular converters will often convert DC from batteries into AC. A regular inverter cannot be used for solar panels as it is simply not compatible with the system.
This is usually straightforward. There should be a display in the front of the panel. A green light indicates that everything is functioning smoothly. A red or orange light means that something is wrong with the system. If your inverter keeps shutting off, it could be because there is too much voltage, overloading the limit. Keep in mind that the solar inverter will shut off when there is no sun. There is nothing to invert!
Absolutely. Every day you live with a broken solar inverter, you lose money. In many instances, the solar inverters only need a reboot and are not actually broken. In others, however, the solar inverter will have to be repaired or replaced. We can supply repairs and replacements for all makes and models of solar inverters in Perth.
The cost of inverter repairs can vary wildly. Installation of a solar inverter can cost between $1,000 – $2,000. But repair is often far cheaper. In any case, call Formula Sun who will look to supply you with the cheapest possible solution. It may well be that your solar inverter only needs a reboot or a few tweaks to work once again. Less reliable companies might encourage you for a complete replacement when it is not necessary.
