We are completely confident in the performance, reliability and longevity of every product we choose to install. When you are investing in a solar power or battery system, you need the system to perform well for you, for as long as possible, without giving you any headaches. There are literally hundreds of different solar products on the market and it can be hard to distinguish between them. When it comes to solar, the old adage “You get what you pay for” rings very true!
Our team of licensed electricians and solar designers/installers (NOT pushy salespeople) will create a system that best suits your goals, budget and electricity usage. Electrical Sensations prides itself on it’s premium products, high-quality workmanship and good old fashion customer service.
Solar carports and car parks are an innovative way to turn an ordinarily passive, mundane structure into an electricity generation system that works for you. Solar carports are the best of both worlds – shade and protection from the elements and free electricity generated from the solar panels!
Relocation of Solar
If you’re getting your roof painted/repaired or need to relocate your solar panels, Electrical Sensations can safely take the panels off and reinstall them correctly. We take great care in our work to ensure that no panels are damaged in the process and everything is working seamlessly when we leave.
Year after year, solar energy saves businesses money and improves profitability. By examining a client’s energy profile and listening to their financial goals, our team is able to calculate the size of commercial solar power installation most appropriate for the client.
Nothing lasts forever and from time to time things will go wrong. If you notice that your system isn’t working as it should or something has damaged your solar system, please call us on 4637 2744 and we work with both you and your insurer to help find the issue and repair it.
Inspections / Reports
If you are not sure whether your solar system is working properly or not – give our friendly team a call and we will go through some simple checks over the phone. From there we can arrange for an electrician to inspect and test your system to determine the best plan of action.
Looking to get a bit more production from your solar power system? Upgrading your solar power system is a great idea to get the most out of your investment. When upgrading, its important to consider how much roof space you have, if you want to keep your current feed-in-tariff and how old the original system is.
Electrical Sensations specialises in inverter repairs and we’re ready to help you get back on the grid, whether you’re an existing customer or not. If your solar installer has left you in the dark, you can rely on Electrical Sensations to assess your situation and get your inverter repaired or replaced quickly and safely.
Solar power systems are low maintenance, there is not a lot of upkeep required. We do however recommend regular cleaning of your panels to keep performing at their best. Over time dirt, debris and dust can build up, creating a barrier that prevents the sun from reaching the solar panels. As a rule of thumb, once every 6-12 months is usually enough.
Things to Consider.
About the Manufacturer
How long has the manufacturer been in existence and producing that particular product?
How financially stable is the manufacturer?
Do they have an Australian office to handle any potential future warranty issues?
What is the manufacturer’s product warranty? This is very different to, and much more important than the output performance warranty.
What is the warranty claim/failure rate?
Is the factory automated? Panels produced in fully automated factories are typically higher quality and more reliable.
About the Panel Itself
What is the physical size and wattage of the panel? With roof space becoming a valuable commodity, lower wattage panels are an inefficient use of space and can make upgrading or expanding the system in the future difficult. As a rule of thumb, panels below 310W are outdated now.
What is the temperature coefficient of the panel? This is an indicator of how it performs in hot weather. The lower the percentage per degree Celsius, the better.
What type of cells does it have? Most panels contain either P–Type or N–Type cells. N–Type cells are typically more efficient and are contained in the REC Alpha Pure panels.
