Whether you use solar panels for residential or commercial applications, our team here at 3 Guys Solar, LLC wants to help you keep them in peak condition. To do that, we provide comprehensive solar maintenance services that will ensure every part of your system is working just as it should. In this article, we’ll go over some key information you need to know about solar maintenance.
How much maintenance do solar panels need?
In general, solar maintenance involves only periodic cleaning to clear away debris and ensure that the panels get maximum exposure to the light. In areas that experience heavy snowfall, solar panels may require more extensive attention in order to make sure they haven’t been damaged by the weather, but luckily this isn’t a problem here in the Sunshine State. However, if you notice that your panels have started to decrease in output or efficiency, we encourage you to give us a call so that we can figure out what’s wrong.
How often should you clean your panels?
According to most experts, you should clean your solar panels (or have them cleaned) two to four times a year. While you can take care of this part of solar maintenance yourself using a leaf blower or a garden hose, for best results, you’ll want to hire a professional cleaning service. Our team has the right experience to provide top-notch solar maintenance services and make sure your panels remain in peak working order and operate at maximum energy efficiency.
