A solar battery system is a great way to harness the superb power of the sun to heat and cool your home or business, and to put a little light on the subject. These systems do not require much maintenance, but you may find that you need some materials to keep your energy flowing freely.
Every quarter it is a good idea to get up close and personal with your solar system. Make sure the panels are clean, and in good working order. Any that have been chipped or otherwise compromised cannot work efficiently and need your attention.
Of course, wherever energy is being converted to electricity or saved up for later, there is also room for breakage and improvement. Yet, sometimes your deep cycle battery will just go out, just like on any item that carries a battery.
There are two main types of batteries for your solar system. Both are actually solar deep cycle battery types. Though, one is a flooded lead acid battery, and the other is a sealed battery.
The flooded is less costly to purchase, and lasts longer but it does require regular maintenance to keep it in good working order. The sealed battery is more expensive, does not last as long, but will work without maintenance its entire lifetime of use.
In general these batteries run in price from a few hundred dollars to upwards of $2,000. Look for batteries that come equipped with all that you need to keep your complementary solar system products in good shape.
Shop wholesale for good pricing, but make sure that they are committed to customer satisfaction, as wholesalers are generally more focused on merchant sales to customers who know their products as well as them. It means there could be oversights in general public customer dealings. Though, many wholesalers and retailers are costumer-focused and are more than happy to share their knowledge of the different types of batteries.
You do need to be aware of what voltage your system requires, and the amps as well. Different batteries will have different wattage and amps, so be sure to order the right ones.
As you get to know your system and perform regular checks and maintenance you will learn the signs of when you need to replace the solar deep cycle battery. They come in two types, and adhere to the standards of different sized systems.
