Solar panel inverters for your residential home.
Your solar inverters are the main component when it comes to solar energy. The main objective of the inverters is to turn the DC power created by the sun rays into available power for your home. The inverters also serve as tracking devices so you and your provider can read data that helps to see how well your system is performing. Without these inverters, you would have a really difficult time maintaining and increasing efficiency. An everlasting solar panel system demands a high-quality inverter. And if you choose to go with something low quality your entire system is subject to fail.
There are different types of inverters to choose from and we suggest consulting with a professional to see which will serve your home the best. You have string inverters and microinverters. Let’s start with string inverters. These are also known as central inverters and found in most residential homes. String inverters turn energy into electricity from the panels themselves. That said, there are advantages and disadvantages to these types of inverters. The largest advantage is that they don’t require much power and have a very low percentage of failing on you. This results in less maintenance and you won’t need to replace them that often. String inverters are also easily worked on because the technology has been in the hands of electricians for many years. So you won’t need to pay a specialist to understand them. We all know how expensive specialist can be. Any certified electrician should be able to work on these types of inverters.
The other types of inverters are called microinverters. They operate in the same way as the string inverters but located underneath the solar panels. Instead of converting the electricity from multiple panels they work individually. The main advantage to mention with these types of inverters is they are a lot easier to fix because they are on each panel. No need to narrow down. They also pinpoint the max power of each panel making them very dependable.
