Solar Panel Servicing and Maintenance in The Shire

Prevention will always be better than cure, and our solar maintenance services are the ideal example of that. We want you to be happy with your system, and rather than dealing with many issues later, prefer to address them immediately.

Much like you would service your vehicle, your solar system needs to be maintained as well. Over time, its performance can be affected, with a reduced output that’s quite visible on your electricity bill. Examples of what can affect your system include:

By regularly having your system checked by a technician, you can prevent these problems from growing. As good as an installation can be, the only way to prevent your system from malfunctioning over time due to external issues is through regular maintenance.

As part of our commitment to providing the best solar services, we guarantee that:

  • All panels installed or services are clean and free of defects
  • All parts of the system, including wires, are in good working order with absolutely no damage, deterioration, or corrosion.
  • The vents are clean with no debris
  • All fittings and cables are securely attached
  • The inverter display panel is reviewed for recorded faults
  • Clear access to the isolator switches
  • Emergency procedures for shutdown and isolation are clearly displayed

We offer the installation of VEXO Solar Mesh Guards to prevent birds and vermin from damaging your solar panels.

Frequently Asked Questions About Solar Panel Servicing and Maintenance

Can solar panels be refubished?

Due to rapid changes in technology and incompatibility with previous panels/systems, we are unable to refurbish solar panels.

How often should solar panels be serviced?

For optimal performance and the prevention of faults, we recommend they are serviced every five years.

Should I clean my solar panels regularly?

Ideally, your panels should be cleaned a few times a year to extend their lifespan while preventing poor energy absorption from a buildup of dirt or debris.

How can I tell if my solar system needs to be serviced?

While a failing solar system can be easily identified, you may be wondering if it’s time to get it serviced. While the issues may not be too obvious now, over time they can become much worse. If you aren’t completely sure if your system needs servicing, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Was your system installed more than three years ago?
  • Are you completely satisfied with your solar system’s current performance?
  • Has the company that installed your solar system gone out of business or cannot be contacted?
  • Would you like to expand or upgrade the system for more efficiency?
  • Do you want peace of mind that your solar system is running effectively?

What is the expected lifespan of a solar panel?

With proper and regular maintenance, you should easily see ten to twenty-five years from your panels.
