Solar panels are a great investment that can provide you with renewable solar energy for the next 25 years or more. But how do you maintain them?
Do solar panels need to be maintained?
Solar panels usually require little maintenance to operate. All you need is regular light cleaning to keep dirt, leaves and other debris out of the sun.
How do you maintain solar panels?
If the panel is tilted, you're in luck. Rain actually removes dirt that has accumulated on the panel. However, it is important to clean them manually during the long dry periods as they can become less efficient. It is generally recommended that you perform solar panel cleaning between two and four times per year, which Nosdivad can do for you.
In winter, it may be necessary to clean the panels after heavy snowfall. If you are using water to remove the snow, make sure it is lukewarm water and not hot. The panel is made of tempered glass and the extreme temperature difference between the hot and cold-water panels can cause the panel damage.
How we check your solar panels?
In order to check your solar panels, we will use a drone. Using a drone not only takes away the huge planning needs and construction costs of scaffolding and the hire costs of the cherry picker. It also takes way less time to do the survey and the quality is perfect for this type of scenario.
Conclusion: Are solar panels hard to maintain?
Overall, solar panel maintenance is very easy. Make sure you have good warranty and insurance, and the panel is clean and free of debris. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with Nosdivad if you ever have any questions about maintaining your solar panels.
