Pro’s and Con’s for Inverters

Generator vs. Inverter Pro's and Con's

An inverter can keep your house running for up to 5 hours with only 2 batteries, but remember the bigger the batteries and the more batteries you attach, the longer they last!

Another Pro worth mentioning is that the starting up cost of a Inverter and the maintenance of an Inverter is cheaper than a conventional Diesel/Petrol Generator.

Another added benefit of an Inverter is that you can have a Solar Module installed, and get power from the sun. This might be a bit pricey in the beginning but will definitely pay off in the long run.

Then let’s take a look at the Inverter Con’s:

Another Con might be that if you don’t have a Solar Module installed you only have a certain amount of backup power. The amount may vary on the batteries that you are using, as well as the amount of batteries you are using.

When you have a Solar Module installed this won’t be much of a problem, as the batteries will constantly be charged by your solar panels.
