What Does Solar Panel Servicing Involve?

Solar Panel Repair

Solar panels are relatively fuss-free. After installation, you’ll benefit from clean energy that’s generated by the sun. Even in poor weather conditions, your panels will still be able to power your home. Despite being relatively low maintenance, you should schedule solar panel servicing every so often. Let’s take a look at what that entails.

Why Should Your Solar Panels Be Serviced?

Even when they’re performing well, there could be minor issues that are developing on your panels. If you’re able to catch these problems early, it can be much cheaper to get them fixed. Otherwise, you may be looking at getting a complete replacement. Servicing also involves looking at the inverters, which do need to be replaced every 10 years or so. Giving them a quick check over means that you’ll have a better idea of when they might need to be changed, so you’re not caught short unexpectedly.

Servicing means that your panels will be performing at their best. When they’re clean and functioning well, solar panels output a lot more energy.

How Often Should You Get Solar Panel Servicing?

It’s worth checking your warranty that came with the panels, as this might dictate how often you need to service them. Failure to comply with these instructions may void your warranty.

You should have your solar panel servicing done once every 5 years if you can. This means that any preventative maintenance or repairs can be carried out, which should keep them running smoothly until your next service.

It would also be a good idea to schedule a solar panel service if you’re noticing that their performance is starting to lag. If you’re unable to spot any damage, the technician that’s carrying out your service can carry out a few checks to make sure nothing is amiss.

What Time Of Year Should Your Panels Be Looked At?

It doesn’t really matter what time of year you choose to get solar panel servicing. However, it’s probably a good idea to schedule maintenance just before summer. This is because dirt and debris is more likely to build up over the winter. A good service will mean that they’re cleaned and ready to generate lots of clean energy over the summer months.
