Is It Hard to Replace Enphase Microinverters?

You’re interested in solar panels for your roof but discovered how important inverters (or microinverters) are to every system. You’ve looked at inverter pros and cons articles online and they all seem to mention that microinverters are difficult to replace.  

That would be true for string solar system installers. They’re not quite up with the times. They’re still rocking up to site with a horse and cart. Have you ever tried to put a ladder on the back of a horse. It’s a challenge.

Replacing microinverters in your solar system is incredibly easy.

At Penrith Solar Centre, we prioritise efficiency in every repair we make. Our goal is to make sure your system is up and running as quickly as possible with minimal disruption to your home.

Let’s explore how our team makes microinverter replacement a breeze.

How Easy It Is to Replace Microinverters?

Replacing microinverters is a straightforward task, thanks to their plug-and-play design.

These components are built to be user-friendly, allowing our technicians to quickly snap them into place. The process involves disconnecting the faulty microinverter and connecting the new one. That’s it.

It’s so incredibly easy to get your solar system back to optimal performance right away. We minimise your system’s downtime and the disruption to your life.

If a microinverter fails, your energy monitoring app will immediately diagnose which unit failed. Let us know when it happens, and we’ll be there with bells on.

We show up to every site prepared for any job. Our trucks are loaded with harnesses and ladders, ready to tackle any installation or repair service. Getting up on the roof is part of our daily routine, so you can rest assured that we’re fully equipped to handle microinverter replacements efficiently.

Replacing a microinverter involves removing it and plugging a new one in. We have no idea why so many string system installation companies cry at the top of their lungs that these components are difficult to replace.

It’s so easy.

Benefits of Replacing Microinverters through Penrith Solar Centre

Choosing Penrith Solar Centre for your microinverter replacement comes with several benefits.

One of the main advantages is that we employ our installers. We’re an in-house installation company. We’re with you from your initial phone query to fulfilling your warranties. Unlike solar sales companies that rely on subcontractors, we maintain control over the entire process.

Our installers are highly trained; they are licensed electricians with extensive knowledge of solar equipment, especially microinverters. Every department at Penrith Solar Centre benefits from the expertise of our certified electricians, ensuring that every aspect of your solar system is handled by a professional.

On the 29th of February of 2024, the Clean Energy Council was reorganised into Solar Accreditation Australia (SAA). All our electricians are SAA certified. They were all CEC certified and they were grandfathered into the new accrediting body.

We provide consistent quality of service and clear, direct communication through every step of the process. Complete transparency is one of our company values.

When you need to make a warranty claim, you deal directly with us, avoiding the hassle of third-party involvement.

Another significant benefit is our quick response time. Subcontractor repair cycles can be lengthy and frustrating, but with our in-house team, you get a faster turnaround. This means less downtime for your solar system and more consistent energy production.

We offer the best workmanship warranty of any company in Sydney. If anything malfunctions or underperforms, we address it directly, without the runaround often experienced with subcontractors.

We make sure your solar is up and running so you won’t rebound back to the grid. It’s normal to miss your ex, but rarely a good idea to call them again.

Our integrated approach guarantees that every aspect of your solar system is managed.
