Solar Maintenance and repairs

If necessary, our qualified electricians fix any safety concerns after running an accurate diagnosis of the problem with your system.
Why is it necessary?
Generally speaking, your solar panels are the lowest maintenance part of your solar system. If they are tilted then most of the water and debris will run straight off them, but if there have been long periods of little rain then your solar panels may need a clean to remove any excess dirt and grime. Whilst our team is on the roof they will be checking
This is a problem that can occur over time. With most quality installations this shouldn’t be an issue but occasionally wires can come loose, drop on the roof and be subject to the heat and water elements
Cracks - Panels
You might find that small cracks start to appear on your solar panels and whilst they may not have an immediate effect on the performance of your system if left long enough could cause your system to underperform and short out. If the cracks are bad enough a replacement panel might be required.
Cracks – mounts/roof
The supports that attach your panels to your roof is an important structural feature of your installation. If the integrity of the support is weakened, then your panel won’t be secured. Also, water ingress in your home is a nightmare to deal with and if not installed properly there can be leaks around where the mounts join the roof.
As your panels are exposed to the weather all year round there is a chance that elements such as lightning, branches and even animals could damage the modules.
Your inverter is the heart and soul of your solar system and it must be working properly. Our experienced technicians will check your inverter to ensure that you are getting the best out of it.
Your system must be CEC compliant and our technicians, whilst performing the health check will also be confirming the compliance of your system. If they find anything that isn’t to standard then they can notify then rectify that during the process.
Your solar system is a big investment, and you should be getting a good return from it from the day it is installed. If you believe that your system isn’t performing the way it should be don’t hesitate to call the team at PDR Energy, with years of experience in the industry there isn’t a problem that they can’t fix.
