Let’s go on…
Having regular and constant power supply is an important need for every individual, city and country around the world. Irregular power supply has been a major problem for years in Nigeria and the city of Lagos.
This has left people quite uncomfortable in their homes as there is no electricity to power their appliances and provide some measure of comfort and entertainment for themselves. Also a lot of businesses have also been affected as irregular power supply has led to a lot of companies closing down as they are not able to continue with production and other services.
Because of the poor power supply, people tend to use generators as a backup or as an alternative. Generators though come with their own problems as it can be quite expensive buying fuel regularly for your generator especially during the period of fuel scarcity. Also generators emit a lot of fumes into the air which are very harmful causing air pollution and they also cause noise pollution with the amount of noise they make.
This has seen some people show interest in buying inverters which are also an alternative source of power supply when there is no electricity and can also be used instead of generators.
An inverter is an electronic device that changes direct current to alternative current and provides power for people to use in their homes and businesses.
Though inverters are more expensive than generators which is probably why it is not really popular among many people, they come with a lot of benefits which include the following
Inverters are convenient and simple to use. All you need to do is charge the batteries of the inverter. Another good benefit of inverters is that they do not require diesel or petrol. This helps to reduce the risk associated with filling up the tanks of generators or storing fuel in homes or offices which can lead to fire outbreak.
CHEAP RUNNING COST
Though inverters cost quite a bit they are not expensive to maintain. Unlike generators that require petrol and diesel regularly, inverters do not require such expense as all you need to do is charge the batteries regularly. So in the long run inverters may actually be cheaper to buy than generators when the cost of petrol and diesel is considered.
INVERTERS ARE NOISE FREE
Inverters do not make any noise and do not cause any disturbance. Unlike generators that make a lot of noise and disturb you using them as well as your neighbors around your homes and offices, inverters do not make noise at all as they remain silent while in operation. So if you are looking for a good alternative source for power supply that is not noisy then an inverter is what you need.
NO AIR POLLUTION
Unlike generators, inverters do not emit dangerous and harmful gases into the air. This is because inverters do not need to use petrol and diesel and have an engine that can release such fumes and gases into the air causing pollution.
