If you’re the owner of a new set of solar panels, you’ll likely already be aware that they require little maintenance. While there is truth to that, it’s always a good idea to perform routine maintenance and cleaning to ensure they’re working at their best.
Professionals recommend a clean at least every four to six months to remove debris, mineral buildup, bird droppings or anything else that may have lodged on the panel. If your panels are accessible, you can use a leaf blower or a hose to gently wash away minimal surface dirt.
If you want to maximise the energy output of your panels, keep track of your solar system monitor to ensure the performance levels are consistent. It also doesn’t hurt to inspect your panels as often as possible. When doing this, check for any damage or debris and anything else that’s not normal.
If you do find something that is not normal during your inspection, or if accessibility is a problem to clean your panels, you should call a professional to assist you. It is recommended to have your panels maintained and checked at least once every couple of years even if you clean them regularly.
