An external battery will be required for an inverter to work for the uninterrupted power supply. Customers installing an inverter for the first time, need to choose the appliances that would need to be powered by the inverter and Battery solution. These appliances include Led lights, ceiling fans, laptops, desktop, printer, and refrigerator, etc.
The price of an inverter depends on the sheer capacity of the inverter. This is measured in VA (Voltage ampere). As the VA increases, greater is its capacity to handle power supply to a house. These home UPS / inverters last for about 8 to 10 years, and usually have a 2 year warranty. The Cost varies with the capacity, technology and the features of the inverters.
On the basis of the technology, there are two types of inverters:
1. Sine wave Inverters
2. Square wave Inverters
Sine Wave Technology is an advancement in the field of inverters, whereas the Square Wave is the older, albeit cheaper product. The Sine wave Technology reduces / eliminates the humming noise from external appliances such as fans, Batons etc. Sine wave technology is also recommended for Sensitive appliances like laptops and refrigerators.
The backup time of the inverter is dependent on various factors. The primary factor is the number of batteries supported by the inverter. One of the bestselling inverter types in India is the 900VA home UPS that requires a single battery. 1500VA to 2000VA inverters are also available, and they support up to two batteries generally.
