Choosing a solar system can be overwhelming, but Airlec Australia is here to help you!
We will assist you in working through your energy consumption and recommend a system sizing that meets your energy goals, whether that be to eliminate your bill entirely or offset your current household usage. It is important however to understand the elements of the on grid solar systems to support you in the decision-making process.
What should you be looking for in a solar system?
- The solar panels should be purchased from a known and diversified manufacturer so that the company is still around in future years should you require a follow up service or warranty back up. Over the years solar manufacturers have been in financial distress and over 350 have come and gone from Australia - leaving a legacy of panels without warranty support. Airlec Australia works with LG, Winaico and JA Solar panels that offer warranties from 12 to 25 years.
- Only use high quality inverters with your system. The inverter undertakes the key work in your system and never stops during the day; adjusting the output with every cloud and change in weather. Airlec Australia works with high quality inverters including Solaredge, Fronius, SMA, Enphase and Selectronics with warranties ranging from 10 – 20 years.
- A solar racking system is the last component in a good solar system. There is no point buying quality panels or inverters and not fastening them with a quality framing system. Airlec Australia utilised Radiant racking that offers a 10 - year warranty and is an industry leading framing manufacturer.
- Make sure the installation company you pick is a local installer, not a sales company, using sub-contractors. Many sales companies in the past have come and gone, leaving the end customer exposed, when repairs and warranty claims came through. Quite frequently these companies don’t employ qualified solar electricians to design their systems and once sale has been obtained, they farm the job out to the cheapest installer they can find.
We Are Not a Sales Company
Airlec Australia is a family owned and run business that prides itself on quality advice and installations. Airlec Australia will arrange a visit to your home or business to ensure that the quote you receive is as accurate as it can be and there are no hidden costs on installation. Many sales companies will quote you a price without inspecting your roof, checking your power supply and power box or measuring your roof space. A quote can easily double if these items are not checked and any upgrades or additional work is not allowed for. Airlec Australia will ensure that you understand all costs involved in the system so that there are no surprises!
