Maintenance Checklist For Your Solar Panel System

Dec 10th 2015 at 5:01 AM

Generally solar systems are very low maintenance. However, there are some things that you can do you increase the life span of the whole system.

Since most solar systems have very few if any moving parts, there is very little that can go wrong with the solar system that would render it redundant within a period of 25years. In fact, this is the main reason why most solar system manufacturers offer a 25 year guarantee with the use of their products. With that being said, there are a few things that can be done if you want to prolong the lifespan of the solar panels.

One of the most important things to do when buying solar panels is to buy a solar system that is from a high quality manufacturer and then have it installed by a high quality installer. By doing this you will rest assured that you have not only purchased the right product but that you have also had it installed in the right way. If you live in Brisbane for instance, look for the best solar in Brisbane to do the job for you. That way you can rest assured that your solar system will last for more than a lifetime or at least beyond the normal 25 year guarantee. In the same breath, it needs to be explicitly stated that where the parts that comprise the solar system installation are manufactured is very important. It would be quite naïve to assume that countries that have just recently got into the technology would produce the same quality of product as a country that has a lot of years of experience with developing solar energy and solar systems. It would therefore be important to choose products that you are sure are manufactured by countries with a long standing background in solar energy systems.


As well as buying parts that you are sure will stand the test of time by their sheer build quality, ensuring that the solar system parts are installed according to specification is critical. You will quickly learn that there is a big difference between a professionally installed solar system and a do-it–yourself installation that any person can do. In essence, a professionally installed solar system will take into consideration all the manufacturers recommendations and use specialised knowledge to install the solar system and ensure that it is working according to its optimum performance as opposed to a sort of trial and error mentality with a DIY installation.For instance,ifyou buy solar panels on the Gold Coast you have to understand several things not only about the climatic conditions and the exposure of the sun in the specific geographical location on the Gold Coast, but you have to also understand how the weather elements will physically affect the solar panels themselves. Additionally, if you want your solar panels to last a long time, frequent cleaning and polishing of the solar panels will ensure that they always remain in tip top condition.
