Solar inverter covers are an important accessory for anyone with rooftop solar. They protect your solar inverter from harmful direct sunlight, ensuring that it stays in good working condition and continues to produce an optimal amount of electricity.
There are a few things to consider when choosing a solar inverter cover.
Most importantly, and something that is often overlooked, is ensuring sufficient airflow is maintained to the inverter. Openings on both sides and the top of the inverter cover are needed for adequate airflow. The openings must also line up with the inverter cooling fans. It’s a critical requirement and if it isn’t considered your inverter can overheat and fail in the years to come.
Secondly, you’ll need to measure your inverter to ensure that you get the right size cover. A safer option to ensure a proper fit is to chose a custom designed cover that suits your inverter from the selection shown here.
You’ll also want to consider the material of the cover and whether it will be able to withstand the weather conditions in your area.
Finally, you’ll want to consider the style and color of the cover, as it will be visible on your wall for everyone to see.
There are a few different types of solar inverter covers to choose from. Most are made from a lightweight, robust material like aluminium and designed to be easy to install and remove.
These particular covers are durable and designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, making them a good choice for areas with high temperatures or frequent storms, like Australia and the USA. See a selection of robust inverter covers here.
In addition to protecting your solar inverter from the elements, solar inverter covers can also help to improve the efficiency of your solar energy system. When an inverter is exposed to the sun, it can become overheated, which can reduce its efficiency and shorten its lifespan. By using a solar inverter cover, you can keep your inverter cool and operating at peak performance.
Overall, solar inverter covers play an important role within a rooftop solar system. They help to protect your inverter from direct sunlight and improve its efficiency, ensuring that it continues to maximise electricity production for years to come.
The long term benefits far outweigh the small upfront cost of the solar inverter cover. It is therefore a good investment for the future!
