Here is the checklist for buying your home inverter!

As the name implies an Inverter is a device that inverts direct current (DC) to alternate current (AC), AC power is required for the functioning of almost all home appliances and electronic devices. Inverter stores electricity from the grid in a battery and changes it into AC and supply it during the outage of power. 

Inverters can be classified into different types based on their output characteristics, input source, connections, load, etc.

On the basis of output characteristics, inverters can be divided into three

·        Square Wave Inverters

·        Sine Wave Inverters

·        Modified Sine Wave Inverters

According to the type of load, Inverters can be classified into.

·        Single Phase Inverter

·        Three Phase Inverters

On the basis of the source of inverters, they are divided into Current Source Inverters and Voltage Source Inverters.

Inverters are indeed an inevitable part of any modern home, as a power backup for your home appliances is no more a luxury. There are many factors, that can be taken into consideration before choosing the right inverter for your purpose. First and foremost inspect the wiring of your home and have a general understanding of the leading inverter brands as well.   Then you need to have a rough assumption over the power consumption of your home. To understand the power requirement Calculate the total load for which you need the backup and total hours of backup. For finding this you have to understand the wattage of your home appliances like fan, mixer grinder, CFL lights, refrigerator, etc.

After having the power requirement, it is better to find the apt inverter battery size for your home. Lithium batteries are now generally considered as the best choice for inverters.  

Pure Sine Wave Inverters will be the apt buy for the power backup of common electronic and home appliances. Also, look into the factors like battery warranty and efficiency of the inverter while purchasing your home inverter.

Let's look into some terminologies that will help us to get a better understanding of inverters in general.

Inverters need to supply Peak or Surge which indicates maximum power an inverter can supply for a brief period and Typical which stands for the usual power an inverter supplies on a steady basis. Typical is the continuous rating which in general is less than a surge. The average power of an inverter is usually much less than surge or typical and it is not a deciding factor while choosing an inverter.

As a first step before choosing an inverter should define your needs and keep in my that factors like electrical standards, power capacity and quality, safety certification, battery charging features, efficiency are all equally important.
