The importance of solar maintenance

Solar servicing and maintaining your system means ensuring safety as well as efficiency. Your solar panel system is an important piece of machinery with a live current running through it, which can present dangers if not properly maintained by qualified professionals.

Potential issues with solar systems include:

  • Damage from natural causes, e.g bush fires, earthquakes or extreme wind events
  • The deterioration of cable insulation over time
  • Corrosion
  • Failure of defective components, or improper installation issues
  • Corrosion or components filling with water
  • Animals chewing cables or damaging components

The cost of your solar system servicing may even be offset by the improvement in efficiency you’ll experience afterwards, making it a cost-effective investment.

Frequently asked questions about Solar Repairs and Solar Panel Repairs

What is involved in the solar service and repair process?

We’ll inspect your system for issues, looking for corrosion, debris and deterioration. This includes vents, switches, inverters and panels - No element is overlooked, as we ensure your system is functioning at its best. And, of course, if it is a known issue requiring a solar repair, this will be specifically inspected and addressed.

Can you service my solar panels in Melbourne even if another company installed them?

Absolutely. While Choice Energy customers enjoy a 60 month maintenance service on commercial solar systems, where we regularly assess for solar cleaning and servicing, we are passionate about providing our high quality maintenance services to homes and businesses across Melbourne and beyond. Regular maintenance may also extend the warranty on your existing system - check your user manual to see if you qualify.

How can I tell if I'm due for a solar panel service?

There are two common causes for servicing to be required for your panels:

  • A drop in performance, noticeable from your rising bills or lower efficiency
  • Error or fault on the inverter screen

If peace of mind is your highest priority, scheduling in a regular solar panel service is also an option, and can keep on top of any changes before they become issues.

What happens if an issue is found?

After undertaking a visual inspection, we provide you with a detailed report of our findings. If there’s an issue, your solar maintenance specialist will have a no obligations discussion with you next steps in regards to fixing the situation to ensure you are getting the most out of your system in the future, including quotes and timelines.

Clean solar panel maintenance for your clean energy solution

Clean panels not only look great, but also perform better too.

Your rooftop panels are exposed to a variety of dirt and debris over time, some of which is likely to build up over time. Cleaning also prevents overheating, and the forming of “hot spots”, where cells may crack due to the sunlight being blocked by debris. Clean panels not only perform better, but look better too.

Frequently asked questions about Solar Panel Cleaning

How often do I need my panels cleaned?

Cleaning depends on a range of factors, including climate and positioning. If you’re in a coastal area, or a spot with low rain and a lot of dust, you might require more frequent cleaning to accommodate for these conditions. One of our solar panel service experts can advise you on your specific needs.

Can I clean the panels myself?

As solar panel systems utilise a live current, it’s best to leave the cleaning to the professionals in case of any underlying issues within the system.

How do I know if my solar panels need cleaning?

If you’ve seen a drop in performance or are seeing an error on your inverter screen, it could be time for a deep clean. Likewise, your panels may just appear filmy or coated - a surefire way to tell it’s time to call in a pro and have them looked at.

What is involved in the cleaning?

We utilise a specific physical and chemical cleaner combination to give the panels a deep clean, and remove debris build up from beneath the panel and racking system. The result: A restored solar system that looks good as new and ready to perform efficiently.
