Just as power cuts are a norm in Indian households, inverter has also become a norm at every household. Many inverter models have come up in the market to suit your power needs. They are worth the money you pay as they are safe, long-lasting and durable. Mr. Wesley of Nantech Power Systems Private Limited, gives us few tips on choosing the right inverter and battery. He says “The most important thing to find out before you go ahead with selecting an inverter is the power needs of your home. In simpler terms, the electrical appliances that you want to run when there is a power failure define your requirement.” He further adds “For example, if you want to run a fan, two tube lights, and a TV when there is a power cut, then it is calculated as below.”
1 Tube light = 60 Watts
1 Fan = 70 Watts
1 TV = 120 Watts
Then your electricity needs are 2*60+70+120 = 310 Watts.
The capacity of the battery is calculated using, the following formula.
No. of watts of power required * hours of backup/Voltage of the battery
Considering the earlier power requirement of 310 Watts
Battery capacity = 310*2/ 12 = 51 Ah so a battery of 100Ah will be best suited for your house.
Usher In The Magical Rays Of Sun!
No artificial lighting arrangements can compete with the natural rays of the sun. Make use of this natural energy source and ensure that there are plenty of spaces for the sun rays to enter your home without being blocked by anything. Try to avoid heavy treatments on the windows. These block the sun rays from entering the room and makes the room look dark and gloomy. Opt for minimal treatments like blinds, sheers, and shades. In case you love to use drapes, you can extend the curtain rods in such a way that the drapes can be stacked back against the wall. It helps to admit in more light and also makes the windows look bigger and elegant.
