Points to consider when investing in a standby power inverter system.
Assess the load, will you be powering your entire home or office or just lighting and certain vital appliances, reduce your load by converting to energy saving lighting/appliances where possible, this will decrease the demand on the system.
An inverter system works by storing a certain maximum amount of energy in a battery bank, normally determined by an Ampere Hour rating, once you have determined the size of the load you require powered you also need to decide how long a period you may require standby power for, once the stored energy in the system is consumed it will require a re-charge, either from mains supply or a solar system. (Operating time is determined by dividing the system capacity by the potential load)
Do you have a suitable place in your home or office where the system can be safely installed.
What type of load will you be powering, this will determine the quality of power supply required, some appliances, especially electronic devices, require good quality 230Vac, 50Hz pure sine wave. An inferior standby supply system could result in certain appliances not working or possibly even damage them.
