Solar Inverters

Solar inverters designed and installed for optimal performance, expertly installed.

In Perth, solar energy is an increasingly popular choice for powering homes and businesses. At the heart of every efficient solar system is a vital component – the solar inverter. Middle Swan Solar is dedicated to providing Perth residents with top-quality solar inverters, ensuring your solar setup is as efficient and effective as possible.

What is a Solar Inverter?

A solar inverter is a critical device in any solar panel system. Its primary function is to convert the direct current (DC) electricity generated by solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is usable in your home or business. 

This conversion is essential because most appliances and the electrical grid operate on AC power. A solar panel inverter thus serves as the gateway between the raw energy harnessed by the panels and the usable power for your property.

Benefits of Installing Solar Inverters

Installing a quality solar inverter comes with several benefits:

  • Efficiency in Energy Conversion: Solar inverters ensure that the energy captured by your solar panels is converted into electricity with minimal loss, making your solar system more efficient.
  • Durability and System Longevity: High-quality inverters not only provide optimal performance but also contribute to the longevity of your solar system.
  • Compatibility with Australian Conditions: Specially designed Australian-made solar inverters are well-suited to withstand local weather conditions, ensuring reliable performance year-round.

Types of Solar Inverters

While micro-inverters have their specific benefits, traditional string inverters and hybrid inverters are also popular choices:

  • String Inverters: These inverters connect a ‘string’ of solar panels to a single inverter. They are ideal for solar systems where panels are installed in areas with uniform sun exposure.
  • Hybrid Inverters: Combining the capabilities of a standard inverter with a battery inverter, hybrid inverters are versatile and can store excess solar energy in batteries for later use.

Solar Inverter Installation and Replacement

Installation Process

The installation of a solar inverter is a critical step in setting up your solar PV system. At Middle Swan Solar, we ensure that this process is seamless and efficient, whether you’re integrating an inverter into a new solar system or adding it to an existing setup. Our team of experienced solar installers will guide you through every step, from choosing the right inverter capacity to suit your home’s solar system needs to the final setup.

When installing a new inverter, our technicians consider various factors like the size of your solar panel array, the orientation of your panels, and your energy usage patterns. This helps us determine the most appropriate inverter capacity to ensure your system operates efficiently. We then carefully integrate the inverter with your solar panels and electrical grid, following all safety protocols and industry best practices.

Replacement Process

The need for a replacement inverter can arise for several reasons. The most common is when an inverter fails after years of service, as most solar inverters have a lifespan that can range from 10 to 15 years, depending on the brand and model. When it comes to replacing your inverter, our approach is both thorough and considerate of your energy needs.

Firstly, we conduct a detailed assessment of your solar PV system to understand the reasons behind the inverter’s failure. Whether it’s due to age, technical issues, or an inverter capacity that no longer suits your energy requirements, our team will identify the root cause. We then provide you with options for a replacement inverter that aligns with your current solar setup and future energy goals.

In cases where inverter repairs are feasible, our skilled technicians will attempt to fix the issue, ensuring that your system returns to its optimal function. However, if a replacement is necessary, we guide you through selecting a new inverter, focusing on improving efficiency and longevity. Our solar installers handle the removal of the old unit and the installation of the new one, minimising any disruption to your electricity supply.

Whether it’s a fresh installation or a replacement, the inverter is a key component of your home’s solar system. At Middle Swan Solar, we are dedicated to providing high-quality installation and replacement services. Our aim is to ensure that your solar PV system delivers the best performance and energy savings for years to come. With our expertise, you can rest assured that your solar investment is in capable hands.
