Inverter and ASHP lifespan

Recommended Posts

Home Farm

We have a SolarEdge inverter and was wondering how many years we should get out of it.

 

I have a similar question about air source heat pumps.

 

These are expensive pieces of kit, so was wondering if it’s years or decades.

With all electronics lifetime depends on operating conditions and thermal stresses.  Generally running them at less than 100% rating and keeping them cool will extend life a great deal.

There was another thread on here a while back which mentioned invertors operating in hot roof spaces, which are at their hottest when the device is also running flat out. I went and added a cooling fan to mine as a result!

Solaredge should last about 15-20 years, depending on it's location.
