AEI Customer Support
What can we help you with?
  • Why isn't my Mitsubishi AC blowing cold air?

    Your AC is possibly on the IFEEL mode. You can tell you're on the IFEEL mode, because the temperature isn't present on the screen.

    To change the mode of your AC, press the mode button until you are on the snowflake icon and can see the temperature adjustor on the right.

    If your AC still isn't blowing cold after completing this action, please call our support line at (808) 842-5853 for assistance.

  • How do I maintain my Solar Water Heater?

    A solar water heater maintenance tune up is required every 3-5 years.

    AEI's solar water heating (SWH) maintenance package includes flushing the tank and panels, replacing the anode rod, replacing insulation, cleaning the panels, checking the timer and settings, and checking temperature gauges. Currently, Hawaii Energy offers a $200 rebate when you schedule maintenance with us!

    Replacing the anode rod is important because it protects the tank from internal rusting. Additionally, it is recommended to drain your SWH tank to remove lime, calcium, and anode rod sediments. This sediment settles at the bottom of the tank and can lead to premature failure.

    Call us at (808) 842-5853 for your solar water heater needs.

  • What is the permit processing for PV and HECO Net Energy Metering
  • My Solar Water Heater isn't producing enough hot water on a cloudy day. What can I do?
  • How do I reset the electric back-up on my Solar Water Heater?

    1. Locate your "Little Gray Box", the electrical timer box, and turn the red lever to the "OFF" position.

    2. Locate the rectangular-shaped upper access panel on your solar water heating tank and remove the outer cover. (This will require a screw driver)

    3. Remove the insulation on the inside of the panel. This will expose your water heater's thermostat.

    4. Press the round breaker button, usually black or red, ensuring you hear a click when you press it. This will reset the electrical back-up to your solar water heater.

    5. Once insulation and panel cover is returned to original position, turn the red lever on your "Little Gray Box" to the "ON" position. Allow 45-60 minutes for water temperature to increase.

  • What should I do if my monitoring portal is showing an issue with one or some of my panels?

    Please call our offices immediately so we can see troubleshoot and diagnose your system. Our new Tech Support number is (808) 380-6845.

  • My PV monitoring portal shows that my whole system is not working, what should I do?

    Your monitoring system is an essential part of your rooftop PV system. This is the sole visual support that all homeowners and service technicians can use to effectively monitor and diagnose a PV system.

    If your Monitoring system is down and shows that all panels are not working- don't panic! 8 out of 10 times this turns out to be purely a connectivity issue and your PV system is still working. Monitoring systems are very delicate as they are connected to a home's internet connection. Something as small as poor internet connection, power outages, or changing internet providers can all affect your Monitoring systems connectivity.

    Whether you have the MyEnlighten or Solar Edge monitoring portal, follow the video below for step-by-step instructions on how to re-connect your monitoring system. Please keep in mind that after you re-establish connectivity, your monitoring system will need some time catch up on all the data that it missed while down. If you try this or would rather speak to us, please call us at our new Tech Support number (808) 380-6845.

  • What does PV stand for?


  • What is solar battery storage?

    Solar battery storage is an energy storage system that allows PV system owners to capture excess solar power. This excess power will not be exported to the grid, instead it is stored onsite for use when homeowners need power most- at night or during power outages!
