Sunpower Maxeon Technology

SunPower has been delivering premium solar solutions for over 25 years. They are the world leader in developing high-efficiency solar solutions for homes. SunPower panels reputedly have the highest electricity yield per watt of any panel currently on the market.1

SunPower’s Maxeon Technology reduces the impact of shading from a tree, leaf or bird droppings. Due to the individual cell design, if a leaf drops on one solar cell, only that cell on the panel is affected and the rest of the panel will still produce electricity. Panels without this technology will shut down all neighboring cells on the panel and may even shut down the panel completely.

SunPower’s Maxeon solar cells are unique in that each cell is built on a solid copper foundation – providing the strength and durability needed to perform in our harsh North Queensland climate year after year.

For more on SunPower Maxeon Technology, contact NQ Solar, your local SunPower Partner. NQ Solar is a locally owned and operated solar installer. Give your nearest office a call to schedule a free, no obligation site visit or visit www.nqsolar.com.au.

Choosing an under sink water filter for your home

If you want to remove foreign substances from all of your water, not just that that you use for drinking, you might be interested in a filter that can be installed beneath your sink.  This is also a good solution if excessive sediment, heavy metal or bacterial contamination poses a real problem in your area. The first question to ask yourself is how should you go about choosing an under sink water filter for your home? The steps below will talk you through to process so you can make the best decision for your home.

Step 1: Research the many filters that are currently available to get an idea of the different makes, models, features and prices. You are more likely to receive the best information by searching online or visiting the showroom of a manufacturer. Visit us in store at one of our locations to browse our high quality range of filtration products.

Step 2: Determine the degree of contamination that is likely to be present in your home, as this will provide you with a good idea of exactly what sort of water filter you require. If you think that the contamination might be severe, make sure that you contact a specialist for screening. This will help guide your decision and give you peace of mind knowing you’ve chosen the right product for your situation.

Step 3: Select a device that is appropriate for the contaminants and substances present in your water. Sediment, heavy metals and even pH problems can be dealt with using a standard model, whilst the presence of bacteria or nitrate may require something more advanced.

Step 4: Try to pick a filter that is quick and easy to change when the time comes, as this will ensure that you can do it yourself and won’t need to call in a professional (which could prove to be expensive). This will also lessen the time that you tap is out of order.

Step 5: Have the filter installed in your home; a professional will be happy to help. Remember that if you want to screen all of your water that you will need to have one of these devices installed beneath every sink and in every tap of your home, including the shower.

Don’t let yourself be talked into purchasing an under sink water filter that you do not need; there are plenty of manufacturers who will try to talk you into purchasing a device that protects against all sorts of contaminants, many of which aren’t even present in your water. By knowing exactly what you need, you can help to prevent this from happening.

Visit us in store at one of our locations to browse our high quality Stiebel Eltron water filters. If you have any questions our friendly staff are here to help so give us a call on 1800 NQ SOLAR (1800 677 6527).
