Power inverters are not noisy like generators and they do not cause any form of pollution or health hazards which might have an adverse effect on the environment.
- You should know however that it might be difficult to make the best choice when trying to get a power inverter in order to cater to your power needs. You will find however that, in this article, I have taken the liberty of putting everything out for you in a very simple and straightforward manner. So all you have to do is to read on and you will be duly informed.
- In a case whereby you happen to be scouting for the perfect inverter for your home, you would probably want to buy the one that has the capacity to power your DVD, TV, air conditioners, appliances in the kitchen, and even your freezer.
- If you would like to have a power inverter to be used in your small sized office or in your home, then you should consider buying either a 2.5KVA or a 1.4KVA power inverter.
- Make a comprehensive list of the Wattage of all the electrical appliances inside your home. This information is usually found printed on the body of the appliance.
- Check the sum of all the wattage. This will help you to determine what it will take (in terms of inverter capacity) to power all of the appliances simultaneously.
- Calculate the required backup that you will need. Multiply the summation of the load with the time of backup. For instance, a backup time of 5hrs is gotten by multiplying 5hrs by 500Watts (that is if the overall Wattage is equal to 500Watts) which will give you a sum of 2500Watts. Additionally, you have to also put into consideration the rate of dissipation due to the power factor and the battery’s’ expected discharge rate.
- The “rated capacity” is the divided by the “unit rating” of that battery which you wish to purchase so as to determine the exact number of batteries which you will be needing. For example, a battery with a capacity of 12V/200AH and a 2400 rating for a 4800V/A power requirements will be about 2 battery units.
