Why you need to have your solar system serviced.
We are often asked the question. “How do I get the best out of my solar system?” The simple answer is by regular maintenance by a professional. But there are some simple ways that you can keep your system running at its best. So, we thought we would give you 4 ways to get the best out of your solar investment.
1. Keep your panels clean and clear
It is always a good idea to keep your panels clean by having them cleaned every six to twelve months. Doing this ensures that your panels are getting as much light as possible – dust on your panels will filter and reflect light, slightly reducing their efficiency. Keeping them clean will also help prevent things like mould or other debris (bird droppings, for example) from affecting how well they work.
2. Look at what has changed since your installation
Trees grow and leaves fall with seasonal change. So, it is also wise to ensure that nearby foliage is kept well under control so that they’re not blocking or shading your panels from the sun. This will also help to ensure that your panels aren’t damaged or obscured by falling branches or leaves.
3. Getting a regular tune up
There’s no doubt that solar power systems are built to be tough and reliable, but just like running a car, regular servicing is the best way to ensure everything remains safe and efficient. By having a professional come out and check everything can save so much on lost production. The panels and the inverter all work constantly so they will from time to time feel the effects or wear and tear.
4. Regular maintenance
Over time things change and with that comes wear and tear. Your solar power system may be quiet, but it’s working hard every day to produce clean electricity for your home. The panels on your roof are often exposed to harsh weather conditions, while your inverter works hard to be in the middle of it all between the AC and DC electricity. This maintenance will also look for any potential electrical safety issues such as water ingress in dc isolators and other things that may cause faults.
