Solar Inverter Replacement Services from Solar Maintenance Solutions
Inverters are arguably the most important component of your Solar Panel System. This is because this is the part in which transfers the direct current into the alternating current.
The AC Current is essentially what powers your home appliances, thanks to the National Grid. As a result, if you don’t have any inverters or if you have a faulty inverter you won’t be able to power your home. There is no other straightforward way of saying that solar inverter replacement services are so crucial to get right.

What is a Solar Inverter?
A solar panel inverter, also called a photovoltaic inverter, plays a crucial role in converting the direct current (DC) electricity produced by solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity that can power homes, businesses, and other electrical loads. Since most household appliances and the electrical grid work on AC, solar inverters ensure compatibility with these systems. With the help of a solar panel inverter, DC electricity can be converted into usable AC electricity, making it possible to power a home or building with solar energy.
Solar panel inverters come in various types and sizes, including string inverters, central inverters, and microinverters. Choosing the optimal inverter type for your needs depends largely on the size of the system, the number of panels in use, and the desired level of monitoring and control. You can find help choosing the ideal inverter for your solar system by searching for “solar panel installers near me” or “solar panel installers UK” and consulting with them.
When it comes to the lifespan of a solar inverter, several factors affect its durability such as the type of inverter, the quality of the components used, and the operating conditions. But, on average, most solar inverters last between 10 to 20 years. Well-designed inverters with high-quality components and solid thermal management systems can last longer. However, those exposed to harsh environmental conditions, such as extreme temperatures, moisture, and dust, can have a significantly shorter lifespan. To extend the life of your solar inverter, make regular maintenance a priority. Regular maintenance of a solar inverter should include cleaning the inverter, checking the connections, and monitoring its performance at a minimum.
Additionally, most manufacturers provide warranties for their inverters. These warranties guarantee a specific lifespan by covering repair costs or even a complete solar inverter replacement during the warranty period.
Solar Inverter Replacement FAQs
Unless you are a Solar Panel Engineer then you probably don’t understand the intricacies of the systems. When purchasing a new system you won’t need to know this, but here is some brief information based on FAQs.
When should I replace my solar inverter?
The projected lifespan of Solar Inverters is between 10 and 15 years. As soon as your Inverters show any kind of faults then it’s time to replace them. It definitely isn’t worth risking putting your home in danger or even it not being financially viable.
Our advice would be to only invest in replacing your system when you have to. This will be when the inverters stop performing at their full potential. As always the less work done on your system, the fewer issues are likely to appear.
How much does it cost to repair an inverter?
Solar Inverter Replacement Cost can be costly; an Inverter can cost anywhere between £500 to £1500. This price will depend on the system, but mostly down to the Solar Panels and the power output. There are also many types of Inverter, so price may even come down to the specific inverter you need.
Luckily, Solar Maintenance Solutions offer the cheapest solar PV inverter replacement cost in UK.
Can inverters be repaired?
Inverters can most certainly be repaired by a solar inverter replacement company like Solar Maintenance Solutions. Thankfully our solar inverter repairs service covers any problem or fault with your system.
Although you can definitely replace a solar inverter by yourself, it is not recommended if you have no experience. This is because there are many technicalities to it and it is important to note it won’t just be for
Why do solar inverters fail?
The number one reason to Inverters failing is actually down to the initial installation. A rule of thumb which needs to be followed is that the panel capacity should be 133% of the inverter capacity. Otherwise the system will be set up to fail if it does not follow this.
It is so crucial to keep control of the system too, as you don’t want it overheating. This may lead to grid faults, hence why you need to keep dust filters as clean as possible.
How often should solar system be serviced?
Despite the fact that electricity is involved, Solar Systems do not need to be serviced that much at all. This includes maintenance, but we do recommend an annual service to see how well functioning yours is.
As a result, this will immediately flag any issue and solve it as soon as it is discovered.
Do dirty solar panels generate electricity?
Dirty Solar Panels can still generate electricity yet lose 20% to 25% of their energy output. So we recommend getting these cleaned as soon as possible and potentially looking at maintenance solutions too. Luckily maintenance comes under Solar Maintenance Solution’s solar inverter repairs service.
