Where should your installer mount your inverter?

Virtually all inverters produce heat as a normal part of their operation. The lower the operating temperature, the higher the efficiency and as a general rule, the less stressed the components are. It therefore makes sense to install the inverter in the coolest, best ventilated position possible to maximise energy output and performance. Avoid north facing walls exposed to direct sunlight at midday, while and easterly facing wall, under a small veranda which provides shade is better suited. Inside garages can also be a good spot, as long the inverter is away from direct sunshine for prolonged periods of the day. Ask you installer to recommend a good installation spot.
