Right Inverter battery for Home in Chennai

right inverter battery for home use in chennai

Whenever you decide to buy a new inverter or upgrade your old one, choosing the right one for your home is always a challenge. You do not just buy any inverter from a shop or the same inverter you saw in someone else’s home as every home’s power requirement, inverter’s load capacity, and other essentialities are different from each other.

So, before buying an inverter, get the basics of choosing an inverter right. Here we are stating some essential factors to take into consideration while going for a perfect buy for your home.

  1. Consider your power requirement: This is the most basic thing to consider while choosing  an inverter  for your home. In simple words, you need to decide the appliances and gadgets you want to run on this reliable power source at the time of power failure.
  2. Find the VA rating of your inverter: VA stands for the volt-ampere rating. It is the voltage and current supplied by the inverter to the equipment. If the inverter operates with 100% efficiency, this means that the power requirement of the appliances and power supplied by the inverter is the same. But this is ideally not possible, and this efficiency is known as the power factor of an inverter. Thus, the combination of your power requirement and inverter’s power factor decides the VA ratings of an inverter.
  3. Choice of battery: The battery is the backbone of an inverter system. The life and performance of an inverter system are very much dependent on battery quality. The battery capacity is measured in Ampere hours (Ah) i.e. for how many hours can the battery run at eh required current. A simple calculation of battery capacity is done with the power requirement, back-up hours required and the voltage of the battery. This simple calculation will save you from any misleading information.

Now at a glance, let us see some of the common inverter problems. This might be an indication for you to replace the old set with a new one.

  • Inverter not turning on: This can be due to several factors like the disconnected battery, loose terminals of the battery, tripped inverter, discharged battery, DC fuse blown, etc.
  • Battery not getting charged properly: This also could be because of several factors like a dead battery, loose battery connections, melted fuse, etc.
  • Shortened back up time: It can be due to too much power consumption or not enough time for the battery to be charged fully. Also, when the battery has low level of electrolyte, the back-up time is shortened. Rusty terminals, old battery and deposition of white ash on the terminals can also be some of the reasons.
  • Continuous beeping of alarm: This can be due to excess of power load on the inverter or a stuck cooling fan.

These are some of the most common problems faced by most households with inverters. In most cases, either the inverter needs replacement, or the battery needs replacement. In both cases.

Given the number of power cuts we are used to witnessing in urban and rural Tamilnadu, the power inverter technology was bound to become a household name. However, over the years people have started facing poor output from their home inverter and battery setups. While it is understandable that heavy usage during summer months may be the cause for less backup, people are even complaining about poor performance during winter months.

If you are also seeing reduced output from your power inverter, here are some things which might be wrong with the setup.

One, your batteries have become old and deteriorated. It means the battery cannot hold as much charge as it used to and needs replacement.

Two, you have become relaxed about inverter power and are now using more power-hungry devices than you were initially. Moreover, if you are running devices like room heaters and water heating rods, then you should expect a drop in the inverter’s performance.

Three, you have a locally assembled product which has started malfunctioning and can no longer recharge the batteries.

So, how to resolve the issue and get your home inverter working at its full capacity?

  1. If your inverter’s battery has become old and can no longer hold the charge required for essential home appliances, it is time to order a replacement. Buying original Livguard inverter batteries can resolve the issue in a jiffy. Luminous,Microtek,Exide,Amaron offer best quality inverter batteries in India and also provides warranty cover as a promise of long-lasting performance.
  2. In case you are running too many appliances, lights etc. on inverter power, consider bringing the usage down to your power inverter’s specification. Over use can sometime damage the unit and batteries as well. To get the most out of your inverter’s power backup you can also switch to energy saving devices such as CFLs and LED bulbs. Similarly, products with copper motors and wiring are more energy efficient and inverter friendly.
  3. If you have a local inverter, consider switching to a branded product instead of wasting money repeatedly on costly repairs.

Tips for inverter battery maintenance:

  1. Make sure that the battery terminals are not corroded or rusted. Rusting can reduce current flow.
  2. If the terminals are corroded, pour hot water mixed with baking soda solution and clean them with a brush. You can also apply petroleum jelly on the terminals and other metal parts of the battery to keep them from corroding or rusting again.
  3. Inverter batteries need to be charged regularly. If you are not having frequent power cuts during winter, make sure that the inverter’s battery is completely discharged and recharged once a month.
  4. If your inverter is using a lead acid battery, make sure it is always filled with distilled water. Do not use tap water or rain water in batteries.

All in all, every home product needs proper maintenance to work efficiently and so do home inverters and batteries. We hope these tips will help you get better power backup from your inverter.
