Jumping Cable Solar Homes can help you with the installment and repair of solar PV systems in your commercial building. We can also upgrade, maintain, as well as clean the systems we or even third parties have installed, except for Solar Thermal Systems that were fitted by other companies.

Solar energy systems often need regular inspections as well as maintenance for efficiency. Although you can do the inspections and maintenance on your own, having a skilled technician not only saves time, it also helps reduce expenses.

1. List of Regular Solar Inspections

Here are the most regular problems that solar system components experience. You should also check your system’s manual for the suggested maintenance schedule.

2. Shading

The shading on your panels can affect their efficiency and performance. Infrastructure, like newly-constructed buildings, can affect your shading.

3. Soiling

If your panels have been collecting dust or soil, their performance will also be affected. Make sure to check regularly and make a cleaning schedule, especially for areas in dry and dusty climates.

4. Glazing and Leaking

Cracks in the collector glazing can also contribute to its inefficiency. If you opted for plastic glazing, replace it once it has turned yellow. If there are leaks in your ceiling, use some sealant while you wait for a professional to handle the repairs.

5. Wiring

Make sure the wires aren’t corroded or damaged.

6. Piping, wiring, and duct Insulation

If the insulation on your wiring, piping, and duct has been damaged, it can also contribute to your panel’s inefficiency.

7. Structuring

Avoid your panels from slipping by checking your structures are supported by tight nuts and bolts.
