How important is an electrical installation condition report...
29th Jun 22
When we met this lovely couple, their six year old inverter crashed and they couldn’t contact the original installers, so they turned to the internet for advice on what to do next.
One of them found Griff Services’ website at about the same time as the other received the suggestion from a veryhelpful website called inverterdoctor.co.uk (seems to give impartial advice with no charge and no hidden agenda; not surprisingly, though, there are some delays in responses) that they should upgrade to a Solar Edge system and they decided that it might be worth the extra cost.
The quote for that extra cost from one supplier was way beyond their budget but Griff Services quoted a much more sensible price and were able to do the installation only a few days later.
It was all done in a day, with no disruption and a great deal of efficiency and courtesy; a great relief after they had lost some six weeks of mid-summer generation.
Purely subjectively, because client has no previous detailed records to compare with, the Solar Edge system seems to be delivering significantly more KwH into the grid than had been the case with the previous, simple system.
They are no experts but it seems that this effect is likely to be greater in the mid-range of generation than at the highest and lowest levels. When the sun is shining from a cloudless sky and the panels are producing the near-4KwH maximum, then there is nothing to optimise; similarly, at the other end of the spectrum, when the sky is completely overcast. In between those, however, there is ample opportunity for the optimisers to ….. well, optimise. And summer 2017 in Yorkshire has provided perfect conditions!
We were really impressed by the professionalism of Griff Services and would recommend them in the future. The work was undertaken well and we had positive comments regarding the corporate identity of Michael and his co-worker and the company vehicle.
Along with the big contracts I know you usually work on the professionalism and quality of work you provided for me on a one off job was truly outstanding. I have had many previous encounters with tradespeople who are late (or never show up) and only do half a job, and ask for more money than originally quoted. To my relief Griff Services have been an absolute pleasure to do business with and I have recommended their services to my colleagues, family, and friends who are in the Construction trade.
Meeting Michael and the GRIFF team was a breath of fresh air. Michael and his entire team were on-hand and available through the whole process to cope with the inevitable challenges of a project this size, and their ongoing quality assurance throughout the programme ensured that on move-in day, we did not even have one item which was not fully operational. I would thoroughly recommend GRIFF tor commercial projects of any scale.
The team at Griff Services are very friendly and have superb attention to detail. They have installed a number of our chargers, and the service they provide us is great.
We needed 6 Solar Panels to be assembled and dismantled few days later. These were for training purposes for local Fire Brigade in Manchester. Project was successful with just few minor issues that have been addressed and resolved at the time. We would definitely use Griff Services Ltd in future.
The EV charging point install was very tidy and efficient. Happy to recommend Griff Services in future.
We needed to replace solar panels inverter and Griff Services quoted a very sensible price. They were able to do the installation only a few days later. It was all done in a day, with no disruption and a great deal of efficiency and courtesy. We were exceedingly impressed by Michael’s conscientious approach, both to the original discussions and the planning process, and also to the execution of the job. He was a pleasure to meet and to have around the place. Thank you, Michael.
