Why is solar maintenance so important?
Although solar systems have very few moving parts, they are still at the mercy of the weather day in, day out. Some of the components, such as the wiring and DC isolators, can become damaged from the elements over time which, in some cases, can leave the system unsafe. Additionally, just like anything, systems wear over time and need continuing attention to ensure they are running at 100% all year round. If you need help or advice with your solar system, don’t hesitate to give our team a call on 0429 139 039.
What happens if I don’t regularly maintain my solar system?
We often find people think as there isn’t any moving parts, a solar system is just a “set and forget” kind of arrangement. This just isn’t the case! When you think about it, a solar system is an expensive set-up that is in the sun day in, day out, year after year… and they do need a regular check-up and service. A couple of things that need to be monitored regularly and maintained in a solar system to avoid major issues include :
- DC Isolators : These are extremely important and must be checked yearly (at a minimum). Just imagine, a plastic switch in the elements such as the sun, storms, rain, hail and UV, which all play a role in the degradation of the device. Most people aren’t aware that a DC isolator can become a fire danger if moisture gets into them, so make sure you get this checked on a regular basis.
- DC Cabling : If the DC cabling becomes loose or rests on the tin or tiles on your roof, in some cases it can rub through the protective insulation and, over time, can cause the system to fault and stop producing electricity. Additionally, animals such as possums may chew or damage the wiring which can potentially lead to a fire.
- Solar Panels : We are seeing more and more solar modules with “burn lines” on the cells, causing the system to produce less energy. Most panels have a 10-year manufacturer's warranty, so if you notice it early you might be able to make a claim.
- Solar Inverter : It is important to ensure your solar inverter is regularly checked, as we find most people realize their solar has stopped working when they get a new (large) bill and the shock of their lives.
Having your solar system maintained by a professional on a regular basis can avoid a majority of large-scale issues, as any problems will likely be caught before they get too big and hopefully be resolved.
