When you switch to solar energy, you make a responsible decision for both your energy budget and the environment. However, this isn’t the last step in keeping your home running efficiently and protecting your electrical system. Like any electrical or mechanical appliance, a solar energy system needs regular maintenance in order to prevent sudden failure and to inspect for any problems before they cause permanent damage to your system.
When your system was installed, your technician had to make several decisions about placement, sizing, and installation, based on your electrical needs, how much sun you have and whether or not you need to be connected to the grid power as well. Furthermore, the technician should have taken many safety procedures to prevent electrical hazards. If you haven’t had anyone inspect your system since installation—especially if your system was not installed by an electrical expert—now is the time to hire an experienced company for solar energy system maintenance to make sure everything is working as it should.
Just as important as your initial maintenance visit, most experts recommend you continue to receive maintenance every year after installation to keep your unit working exactly as it should. A technician will test and adjust electrical connections as needed and inspect the wiring. The photovoltaic (PV) panels that collect solar energy simply cannot perform at their best if they are dirty or cracked, so a technician will inspect for damages and clean the panels so that they are in top shape. Periodic cleaning is especially crucial if you live in an area that is excessively dusty, and professionals know the safest methods to use for this type of cleaning.
