Solar panels generally require very little maintenance since there are no moving parts. A few times a year, the panels should be inspected for any dirt or debris that may collect on them. Always make sure you are safety conscious when inspecting panels and don’t take any needless risks! If your panels are too high up on the roof to see very well from the ground, use caution with ladders.
For a general cleaning, simply use a clean wet cloth or standard garden hose depending on the size to wash the face of the panels during either the early morning or in the evening. Avoid spraying cold water onto hot panels or you could risk cracking them!
The Solar Company offers solar panel cleaning services – please contact us if need be with one of our professional cleaners. This is a better choice for panels that are too high to reach well with just a wet cloth or a garden hose or if you want a more thorough cleaning.
Standard solar panel maintenance is the best way to make sure they are always producing efficiently.
