Most of the appliances used domestically and commercially operate either on 12-volt or 24-volt power systems. Basically, your energy consumption specifies the voltage of your power system. A 12 volt battery pack is used for an extra-low voltage power unit. With the increase of electronic appliances in households, power consumption has increased. So most systems today use 24 volt or higher battery packs. Although a 12-volt battery is more popular for domestic purposes, the need for extra power today has made most of the residents install 24-volt power units along with a 230v AC inverter and voltage Regulator that helps in running standard AC appliances and lighting.
Although it is an added advantage to use both battery packs for different equipment to distribute power among various appliances, here is a brief explanation on both 24 volts and 12-volt battery pack for you to understand better and choose what fits best to your need.
Using a 24 volt battery pack instead of the 12-volt pack can reduce the cost of wiring to almost half and automatically reduces the size of wires that otherwise would have been used. Increasing the voltage of the system reduces the current through it, the lesser the wires used the lower is the cost. A 24-volt battery pack is congenial to AC appliances that require more heavy power backup. You can also switch down to 12volt from a 24-volt pack by using a charge controller.
A voltage regulator should be employed to make sure those appliances like telephone equipment or ceiling fans that do not run on 24 volts can use a 12-volt power system. Having only 24 volts installed without a charge controller or regulator would mean that you won't be able to run these appliances unless you use a voltage regulator. If you use a 24-volt inverter, then it is not a good idea to use the 12-volt battery pack to use a 24-v inverter you need to align two 12v batteries or a single 24v battery to match the power need of your inverter.
You can use a 12-volt system when you want to operate appliances directly from batteries, most of the domestic appliances use 12-volt battery systems hence 12 volt is the most widely used on the domestic level in comparison to 24-volt battery packs. But as much as they are popular the charge regulator cannot easily step up to higher voltage power as most of them work in reverse. The wiring is also costly compared to 24 volts and higher voltage system.
If you are confused between choosing the best battery pack in terms of sufficiency, then it is better to install a 12 volt since it is more popular among households and most of the home appliances require 12-volt battery systems. Although it is advantageous to have both installed if your appliances also run on a 24-volt system, you can nonetheless have a 24-volt power system installed along with a charge regulator to reduce the voltage to 12 volts according to the need. This way you can balance between both types of appliances that use heavy as well as low voltage power systems.
Many 24v and 12v appliances don't require inverters like lighting etc. But recently customers need more power supplies to keep every appliance active and in the operating state. The use of lithium-ion batteries has expanded in recent years whichhas made extra power for households easily accessible and affordable. CNC Sales has been working in the industry for years they started with 800amp mini boosters and have been ever since evolving further.
