Solar Maintenance FAQ

Do Solar panels require regular maintenance?

Solar panels are low-maintenance and require little to no maintenance. Because they are installed outside, you will need to clean them on a regular basis to remove dirt, leaves, and other debris that may be blocking the sun’s rays.

Is it necessary to clean solar panels on a regular basis?

We recommend cleaning your solar panels a few times a year to ensure they perform at their best. You may extend the life of your system by doing routine maintenance, allowing you to enjoy an efficient system for many years to come. If your panels aren’t generating as much power as usual, it might be due to dirt or debris.

How do I tell whether my solar system needs to be serviced?

Solar power systems are a substantial investment, so you’ll want to make sure they’re running as smoothly and effectively as possible. To do so, you’ll want to have them serviced by solar panel professionals. We have a team of highly qualified and fully licensed solar specialists at Solar Water Wind who can inspect and service your solar power system.

Here are a few questions to ask yourself to determine whether your solar system needs servicing:

  • Was your system installed more than three years ago?
  • Is your system performing as well as you would expect?
  • Has the company that supplied your solar system gone out of business/uncontactable?
  • Would you like to expand or upgrade the system to generate more power?
  • Do you want peace of mind that your solar system is running effectively?
Is it true that solar panels can be damaged quickly?

No, solar panels are made to resist extreme weather. Solar panels are protected by high-quality, long-lasting glass.

What is the expected lifespan of solar panels?

If properly maintained, solar panels can last up to 10-25 years. That is why it is critical to keep your solar panels in good working order.
