Installing solar panels is an excellent way to generate off-grid renewable energy. However, like any piece of equipment, solar panels require regular maintenance to ensure that they continue to function at their best.

Our technicians provide maintenance services, including electrical checks and panel cleaning, to keep your system operating safely and efficiently.

Maintenance goal #1: Clean panels

Over time, dust, dirt, and other debris accumulate on the surface of your panels, which will eventually reduce their ability to capture sunlight and generate electricity. This can result in a significant drop in your system's output and lost savings on your energy bill in the long run. By having your panels cleaned regularly, you can ensure that they are operating at their maximum efficiency and producing the most energy possible.

Maintenance goal #2: Safe panels

ПThe wiring in a solar panel system can also deteriorate due to long exposure to heat, UV rays, and other environmental factors. Therefore, another essential aspect of solar panel maintenance is checking the electrical components of your system. Faulty wiring can lead to a decrease in performance and even pose a fire hazard. Regular inspections help to catch these issues early on, preventing costly damage and ensuring the integrity of your equipment.

Maintenance goal #3: Long lifespan of the panels

Experience has shown that regular maintenance helps to extend the lifespan of your solar panels. By keeping your panels clean and well-maintained, you prevent damage from settling in and ensure that your system lasts for as long as possible. This is likely to save you money in the long run by delaying the need for costly repairs or replacement.

At Altmer Energy, we recommend scheduling maintenance for your solar panels at least once a year. Our team of experienced professionals provides comprehensive cleaning and inspection services to keep your system running smoothly and efficiently.

Whether you're a new customer or you already have solar panels installed, we can help you to get the most out of your investment and keep your panels shining bright for years to come.

Maintenance tips

There are a few things that you can do to help maintain your solar panels, as well as some things to look out for that may require professional attention.

It's important to avoid using abrasive cleaners or tools that could scratch or damage the panels. Do not attempt to clean panels that are damaged or heavily covered in debris. Home cleaning does not replace regular maintenance.

  • If you notice that your system is producing less energy than usual or if your solar panel starts having other issues, it's recommended to contact Altmer Energy technician to diagnose and resolve the problem as soon as possible.
