Such welcomed perks can be expected when bringing your home or business into the 21st century with a solar panel system; however, there is also the matter of their upkeep. While solar panels are durable and strong, the reality is that no energy device is immune from damage. Here are some of the types of solar panel repairs that PES Solar is equipped to handle or replace.
3 Common Solar Panel Repairs
There are different ways your solar panels can be damaged. Keeping an eye out for these signs and knowing when to call the solar panel repair experts at PES Solar can lead to greater longevity and effectiveness. Common solar panel issue that requires repair include:
1. Microscopic Fractures
Small cracks and hot spots can crop up due to possible mishandling during the panel delivery or sudden changes in temperature. These minor cracks can deteriorate output and snowball into larger fractures over time.
2. Loose Wiring
The system may experience loose wiring resulting in a faulty connection from the cells to the batteries or inverters. The slightest fault in connection can reduce energy consumption.
3. Damage from Weather and the Elements
While Floridians don’t have to worry about snow and freeze, there are other malevolent forces at play. Excessive heat, storms, hail, lightning, and other natural opponents to solar panel materials are frequent. Although not entirely unavoidable, preparation and maintenance can keep your solar panels ahead of the curve.
How to Prepare and Prevent Solar Panel Damage
Although some of the conditions listed above are uncontrollable, you can take steps that will help maintain and keep your solar panel performance and placement as optimal as possible.
Clean your panels
Dirt and other buildups can compromise the output of your solar panels. Rinse them thoroughly with lukewarm water to maintain a neutral temperature.
Eliminate potential threats
Storm winds and general adverse weather could lead to damage from falling objects. Clear away any tree branches or debris that could possibly fall on or scrape your solar panels.
Keep an eye out for output levels and overall performance
For any noticeable underperformance or other issues, the solar panel repair professionals at PES Solar can assess for any adjustments or replacements should it come to that.
