It is a known fact that after a long day at work, you need to come home and relax comfortably. Some people have solar systems already installed, which serve as an alternative when the power goes out while some don't have them.

In the event of power outages, which can be inconvenient, some people with solar systems at home may switch to an alternative power source immediately. These days, inverters are helpful because they supply electricity to electrical appliances that are necessary.

It is understood that the backbone of an inverter is the battery; this is where the power is stored and distributed to the inverter when it is switched on. Therefore, it is imperative to take these five (5) necessary measures to keep the inverter battery in proper shape if you want an uninterrupted power supply.

Here are the 5 tips below.

1. BATTERIES SHOULD NOT BE SURFACED WITH RUST:  Ensure that the battery terminals are free of rust and corrosion. Rusting reduces the current flow of a battery, which lowers its performance. In the end, it reduces the battery's life, which affects your inverter's backup. You can avoid corrosion on the battery terminals by pouring a solution of hot water and baking soda on them and then applying petroleum jelly over them.

2. BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERLOAD THE BATTERY:  When there is a power outage, the UPS battery provides electricity through its stored energy. An overloaded battery would reduce the backup time. Therefore, it is vital to disconnect devices that consume a lot of energy. By unplugging your inverter from the extra load, you will significantly increase its battery backup.

3. ENERGY-SAVING APPLIANCES SHOULD BE USED: A good way to reduce power consumption is to use energy-efficient devices and appliances. The use of fans can also help save energy, just like the use of bulbs. Ceiling fans with better wiring consume less power than those with poor-quality winding.

4. BE SURE TO CHECK THE WATER LEVEL ON A REGULAR BASIS:  Inverter batteries should be checked every two months for water levels. Make sure that the water level stays between the minimum and maximum limits. It is not recommended to use tap water since it contains minerals and contamination that can affect battery performance.

5. BATTERY MUST BE CHANGED WHEN NEEDED:  When necessary, replace an inverter's battery. Batteries lose capacity over time, which reduces backup capacity. Sealed batteries are the best option because they do not need to be maintained frequently and do not leak electrolytes.

By following the steps one by one, you can maintain your inverter battery. Nonetheless, Vesselnet Solar sells valve-regulated lead acid at a lower price, and our engineers are always available to assist you. You can visit our website www.vesselnetsolar for more information
