Solar panels are great investments, providing property owners with renewable solar energy for many years to come. You may have considered having one installed but wonder how the maintenance process works. Some common questions regarding solar panel maintenance will be answered throughout this article so keep reading.
How Often Do Solar Panels Need Maintenance?
Generally, Newstead solar panels require little to no maintenance to function properly. They only need occasional light cleaning to ensure that nothing is obstructing the sun's rays. Still, extensive measures may be needed after a heavy snowfall or if your solar power system noticeably performs less efficiently.
To ensure that no minor issues are overlooked, it would be best to have your system inspected every 4 to 6 years. Our Newstead solar power installers can also check your solar panels if you suspect that your system is experiencing problems.
How Should Solar Panels Be Cleaned?
You can expect your solar panel to require more cleaning during the dry seasons. Without much rain to wash off accumulated debris, some obstructions can persist and prevent your system from performing optimally.
As a general rule of thumb, it is recommended to perform a cleaning two to four times per year. All you need is a garden hose or a leaf blower. Using any of these two will help you achieve a clean solar power system in no time. However, be careful not to use hot water as you clean since doing so might damage the panel.
