Why you should service your solar system?
Things change over time and with that wear and tear. You may not be aware that there is anything wrong with your solar power system as it may be quietly working in the background. However, the panels on your roof are often exposed to harsh weather conditions, while your inverter works hard to be in the middle of it all between the AC and DC electricity. This is why we offer Service and Maintenance of solar Systems in Melbourne’s south east suburbs.
Service and Maintenance
Is your Solar PV installation SAFE and working PROPERLY?
There’s no doubt that solar power systems are built to be tough and reliable, but just like running a car, regular servicing is the best way to ensure everything remains safe and efficient.
EnergySpec Electrical recommends servicing your solar power system once a year. This will guarantee that your unit is producing as much renewable electricity as it should be.
Most importantly, regular solar power system servicing helps safeguard against any mechanical problems in the future. So that you can get the most out of your investment.
There are also regulations
Are you aware that as an owner of an embedded generating system (Solar PV), you have obligations under Victoria’s Electricity Distribution Code to regularly check and maintain your system? A copy of the code can be found at Australian Government, Clean Energy Regulator, click here for the link. Incorrectly installed or poor quality DC equipment can pose a fire risk. If your system was installed before 16th October 2012 you could be in the high risk category.
In addition to your mandatory requirements it is also highly recommended to ensure your system is performing correctly. The reality is most people wouldn’t know if it is or not. This is why it is important to have an HONEST and EXPERIENCED solar installer/electrician conduct your maintenance. Much like servicing your vehicle, your solar requires periodic maintenance.
