Solar Panel Cleaners
One of our clients’ maintenance services is solar panel cleaning. Solar panel cleaning involves rinsing the solar panels with high-pressure water to remove all loose dirt, dust and debris.
This is an important task that needs to be done regularly to maintain your investment in solar power energy. This cleaning service can increase your investment by up to 25% by maintaining optimal efficiency through reduced shading, which increases energy generation. Clean solar panels also prolong their life expectancy, preventing premature failures.
We are qualified in carrying out this cleaning process without damaging the panels themselves or any surrounding structures or equipment. Contact Solar Power Canberra today for further information about our solar panel maintenance services if you have any questions or would like a quote.
Why is solar panel cleaning important?
A good rule of thumb is that if your solar panel doesn’t seem as efficient, it may be time for cleaning. Cleaning the panels helps increase energy yield by restoring their original
Solar panel cleaning is a necessary part of owning solar panels. Even in the best conditions, solar panels will accumulate dirt, dust, and bird droppings over time, which can impact performance. Solar panel cleaning helps maintain optimal performance and extend the life of your solar panels.
Many homeowners find that their electricity bill goes down after having their panels cleaned since they are producing more power. Also, depending on how dirty your panels are, you may need to have them replaced sooner than expected due to reduced performance, which will require additional costs or inconvenience if you’re unable to wait for a new system installation.
How to clean your solar panels
Cleaning of solar panels is not a hard task. However, specialised equipment and training is required to do the job safely and properly. All our staff are fully trained in the safe and efficient cleaning of solar panels.
We use a specialised vacuum cleaner that removes any accumulated dust, dirt or other contaminants from your solar panels. We can also clean your solar panels using a pressure washer if necessary.
Common mistakes that people make when cleaning their solar panels
Some mistakes people make when cleaning their solar panels are:
When they are hot, tap water to the solar panels can damage or even crack them. This is why it is important that you use a solution that is non-corrosive to your solar panels. Never allow any chemicals onto your roof, especially acid-based chemicals, because this will corrode the metalwork of the solar system and cause premature failure of the modules. We have seen many examples where people have tried using their pressure washer or garden hose with an abrasive nozzle attached which has caused significant damage to the glass surface of their expensive solar panels.
How much time does it take to clean the panels?
Typically, this takes between 30-60 minutes, depending on access to your roof or solar array. As every house is different, some houses may take longer than others, so please contact us for more information regarding your specific situation. Also, if the solar panels are many years old, we would recommend a new clean to remove any built-up dirt or bird droppings.
