Hi I'm thinking of heating my water with solar but my problem is that I have a 4kw element in my 200l geyser. I only have a 5kw inverter which can power the 4kw element and can blend solar and grid.
The problem is obvious that I cannot use anything else with the geyser on. The best option I think is to upgrade to a 8kw sunsynk and put the geyser on the non essential side but my inverter is only 4 months old and could last 10 years before it needs replacing.
I could downgrade the element to a 2kw one and connect it to my 5kw inverter.
I'm just not sure what the downside is to downgrading my geyser element.
Why not put in a smaller element?
Or even one that can run directly off solar PV? Makes much more sense.
