Extending the Life of Your Solar System with Regular Maintenance
Did you know that regular maintenance is the key to ensuring the longevity and efficiency of your solar system?
It's not just about keeping them clean; it's about safeguarding your investment for the future.
Here's what regular maintenance does for your solar panels:
Prevents Efficiency Loss: Electrical rooftop inspections and tests are advised, especially if you suspect your solar system isn't performing optimally.
While cleaning the panels does optimize their performance, solar panels are generally designed to self-clean with rainfall, particularly if they're not installed flat.
However, if you notice a significant buildup of visible dust, bird droppings, leaves, or other debris, these can diminish the efficiency and performance of your solar panels over time, necessitating more proactive cleaning measures.
Continuous monitoring of your production levels vs your property energy consumption and understanding your export levels will assist you in understanding how much loss is occurring in your system.
Early Fault Detection: scheduled inspections are recommended every 2 years which can identify potential issues before they turn into costly repairs, keeping your system running smoothly.
Extends Lifespan: Just like any other investment, taking good care of your solar system prolongs its life, ensuring you get the most out of your solar panels.
On the flip side, neglecting solar panel maintenance can lead to:
Reduced Power Output: Neglected panels can lose a significant percentage of their efficiency.
Warranty Issues: Some warranties require regular maintenance. Neglect could mean voiding these warranties.
Costly Repairs and Replacements: Minor issues can become major problems if left unattended, leading to expensive repairs or even full replacements.
Remember, a well-maintained solar system not only benefits you with optimal performance but also contributes to a sustainable future.
