Before Solar Panel Installation, Know How to Maintain Your Panels in Every Season

Spring

Preventative maintenance goes a long way when it comes to the longevity of your home’s solar panel system. Every spring, plan on having a professional do a thorough inspection of your solar panels to check for loose wiring, excessive cracking, burn marks, missing bolts, and other issues.

Summer

Since summer will probably be one of your solar panel system’s busiest seasons, it’s important to keep the panels free from dust and pollen. While a rainstorm is usually enough to clean off your panels, you may want to think about installing a roof-mounted sprinkler system.

Fall

Your solar panels will produce energy well into the fall as long as they aren’t covered in fallen leaves and vegetation. As long as you have the proper safety equipment, do your best to keep your solar panels free from leaves.

Winter

Ice buildup and snowfall can threaten the operation of your solar panels. We recommend a professional maintenance service during this season to prevent damage and ensure the operation of your panels.
