Can inverters be noisy?

Many customers ask if the inverter will be noisy, especially if installed near bedroom windows etc? The high quality inverters are usually very quiet and you will hardly be able to hear them. Cheaper models are often characterized by a monotone hum and buzz, especially during periods of high output. Look at the product datasheet for noise data.  

Consider that even if installed near a bedroom window, the inverter switches off during the night. Nevertheless for shift workers etc the lesson is - buy a quality inverter and try to install the inverter near the switchboard and not direct outside the bedroom window. Suggest your preferred position to the solar system installer and also do not put the solar inverter where it is exposed to direct sun for long periods of the day.
