SUNNY ROO INVERTER WARRANTY

So a few years ago you thought you would put  a solar power system on your home and you thought that getting the cheapest quote possible was the way to go, so off you went and went with the cheapest quote that sat on your on the kitchen table, the beyond building energy quote. Well, didn’t that turn out to you bite you on the bum?

What a Struggling inverter the Sunny Roo 5000TL turned out to be! Have you been SunnyRooted?

Beyond Building Energy – Sunny Roo inverter

So along came beyond building energy, a few weeks later and installed your system complete with a sunny roo inverter. You had now been sunny rooted!

Let me clarify what it means by saying that you have been sunny rooted – your sunny roo inverter now no longer has a warranty. It’s a boat anchor, and probably a very good one at that. Your SR 5000TL is dead!

Replacement and Repair – Sunny Roo Inverter Warranty

This inverter was doomed from the beginning, a terrible inverter with a solar installation company who had entire interest in the inverter, and also the warranty with that. Beyond building Energy actually owned sunny roo inverters.

So you’ve stumbled across this page in search of sunny roo inverter warranty. Well, I’m going to now tell you that no such sunny roo inverter warranty exists, the sunny roo inverter warranty disappeared the same time that the beyond building energy when out of business.

The good news is you have a solar sytem on your roof of your house now for at least three years and it’s been working well. Up until now.

The generous feed in tariffs that the government were dishing out back then and  unbelievably cheap prices that beyond building energy were selling the solar systems for means that, all the more likely your system has well and truly paid for itself. Now that’s a good thing. DO NOT REPAIR YOUR SUNNY ROO inverter, you will continue to waste money!

The thing is that now you have a dead sunny roo inverter with no warranty, and this sunny roo inverter will need replacing. This is going to cost you money.

The good news is that Queensland solar lighting can replace your dead sunny roo inverter. We can replace it with a quality Chinese inverter inverter, such as a JFY inverter or perhaps this time around you want to do it the entire opposite way of how you first did it, and get the best inverter in the market, a German SMA inverter. Either way that this is done, you are surely going to end up with a better result than having beyond building energy go out of business on you and at the same time forfeit your inverter warranty.

Every week we get a few calls from  beyond building energy customers calling us up and asking if we fix sunny roo inverters or if we have a suitable replacement inverter for them and their system.

We are  always happy to help these customers who’ve been burnt in the past, we will show them how to operate their new and far superior inverter. We show them how to troubleshoot and identify any problems that may arise in the future.

We really want all our customers to feel that they really understand what a solar inverter is, what it can do further them, how to operate it, how it operates and why it is important that it is always working for them.

sunny roo inverter review

is your Sunny roo inverter not turning on too?

There are a few clever people around out there who are fixing the sunny roo inverters that have died. However, while these people can easily fix the inverters, the inverters are also prone to breaking again. Then you guessed it, under no warranty. This is the reason it is best just to replace the whole inverter, get a proper inverter and do it properly from the beginning.
