Inverter Replacements



Keep Your Solar System Running Smoothly with Replacing a Faulty Inverter

The inverter is a crucial component of your solar system, converting the direct current (DC) generated by your solar panels into alternating current (AC) for use in your home.

Why Replacing a Faulty Inverter is Important

Inverters, like any electronic component, have a limited lifespan and can experience performance issues over time.

Replacing a faulty inverter is essential for several reasons:

  • Maintain System Efficiency: An efficient inverter ensures that you get the maximum possible output from your solar panels.
  • Prevent Downtime: A failing inverter can cause your entire solar system to stop working, leading to energy production losses.
  • Improve Safety: Modern inverters come with enhanced safety features that older models lack.
  • Upgrade Technology: Newer inverters offer better performance, more features, and improved monitoring capabilities.

Signs Your Inverter Requires Replacing

  • Frequent Faults and Errors: Regular error messages and fault codes can indicate that your inverter is failing.
  • Reduced Energy Output: A Noticeable drop in your solar system’s energy production may be due to an inefficient or failing inverter.
  • Age of Inverter: Most inverters have a lifespan of 10-15 years. If your inverter is approaching this age, it might be time for a replacement.
  • Physical Damage: Visible signs of wear, corrosion, or damage on the inverter casing.
  • Unusual Noises: Strange noises coming from the inverter, such as buzzing or clicking sounds, can indicate internal issues.

Does a grid connected solar system need maintenance?

In general no. Most of the major components can be set and forget items. Solar panels may need to be cleaned but will function without fault if they are never touched. Most solar railing systems will only need to be touched if they are close the salt water and corrosion accrues or extra panels are required. Solar inverters nowadays are mainly made in a fashion that if anything ever goes wrong with the inverter it will require a replacement inverter to be installed or a service technician and no attention from the client will be needed for this as well. I general check-up of the system is advisable roughly every 3 years in conjunction with letters that some DNS (electrical distributers) send out advising that its good to make sure your system is safe and that all components are in good working condition.

Who should we contact for faults and warranties?

If your system was installed with in the last 5 years as mentioned above and your warranty should be in place and if your happy with the service you receive from the initial solar company that completed your work I would advise that you give them a call and see if they are willing to help you solar the issue that you may have. Unfortunately over the last 5 years well over 50% of all the companies that were installing solar now no longer exist and this may be hard to find and other solar companies are not interested in helping out in this situation because they don’t believe its worth while financially. At Velocity Solar we are more than happy to help out if you don’t get the service required at this level. Please note though that with nearly all solar equipment the warranty is with the manufacturer and not the solar installation company, this means that even if the company that installed the system does not exist you can still get your system replaced under warranty. There may just be a small cost associated with the servicing components of this. Lastly you also have the opportunity to contact the manufacturer directly and see if they are helpful in advising a service partner in your area to assist in your enquiry.

If you have tried to make contact with the solar installation company and the manufacturing company and you are having no luck getting any communication regarding your warranty enquiry then you next step may be to contact consumer affairs or fair trading depending on which state you live in.
