Solar Inverters Brisbane
With energy alternatives more readily available and affordable, there has never been a better time to make the switch.
The solar inverter is a vital part of your solar system and choosing the correct one for your home or business will see you make the most return on investment. All the solar power produced by your panels will pass through the inverter, so ensuring your chosen component is equipped with the best safety measures, warranties, and extras will truly make a difference in the long run.
At Springers Solar we only stick to a select handful of inverters for residential installations that have been tried and tested to perform for Queensland homes and businesses. We choose our suppliers very carefully which allows us to pick the quality of the products based on warranty, longevity in the market, performance, and service and support from the supplier. From entry-level systems to top-of-the-line components, all of our selected components have been analysed and tested to ensure our customers only the best.
Most inverters specify a "peak performance"- the highest figure the inverter can achieve. Springers Solar chooses inverters with a peak efficiency of over 94% to ensure the greatest return on investment.
When choosing your inverter it is important to look at the manufacturer's reputation, assurances, and warranties to ensure your inverter will last over time. Springers Solar chooses inverters with a minimum 10-year warranty.
On average, inverters do not last as long as solar panels so choosing one that has assured longevity/warranty is worth the extra dollars. Our selected inverters are supplied by some of the most reputable industry names that can assure longevity.
Why Quality is Crucial
Ensure you get the most out of your solar system.
Solar Inverters are the 'engine room' for any solar system, responsible for converting the DC power that solar panels create into usable AC power for your home or business. Easily the most expensive component of a solar system, solar inverters must be expertly selected to fit the unique requirements of each fit-out.
At Springers Solar we take pride in providing clients with the highest quality components with proven performance to ensure maximum return on investment. We have carefully selected our recommended providers based on longevity, performance, and warranty and are in turn trusted by these industry leaders to install their products.
Which Inverter is Right?
The solar inverter is arguably the most important piece to any solar system to ensure maximum performance and longevity. As panel technology has advanced, so too has the solar inverter market with superior technology now readily available with a much smaller price tag. Every installation poses different external factors, conditions, and unique design features that must be taken into consideration when selecting components; no two installations are the same. Springers Solar mainly recommends and installs microinverters and string inverters for residential installations. While both ultimately do the same thing, they do have some obvious differences.
String inverters are the traditional and most cost-effective option when initially installing a solar system. Often paired with power optimisers, string inverters work by attaching to solar panels by “strings”, hence their name. This system is ten installed near the main server to offer easy access and maintenance with all electronics off the roof. This solution offers a centralised system with great efficiency, around 96%, making it a premium pick for residential projects.
Microinverter technology has only recently become a readily available option due to pricing. This technology essentially works in the same way as traditional inverters, however, these inverters are installed on each individual panel. This allows each panel to perform independently to maximise output.
String Inverter Advantages
- Low upfront costs
- Known for their durability and reliability
- Low probability of wiring issues
- Easy to troubleshoot
- Extensive monitoring capabilities
- Long lifespan
- Easily built upon for future expansions
- Flexible around challenging installations
