SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., April 20, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Solar panels are an investment in the future and, like any investment, they require proper care to continue delivering their best performance for a long time. Maintaining solar panels is a relatively simple process, reports the solar installation team from San Luis Obispo's Electricraft, Inc.; the key is to be diligent.

Following best maintenance practices helps ensure the entire solar system operates efficiently for many years.

As a general rule, panels should be inspected and cleaned every six months. Certain weather or other conditions may require more frequent maintenance. Strong winds blowing dust and debris onto the panels, storms, and natural events such as earthquakes or fires are all circumstances for inspecting the panels.

Everyday occurrences still deposit dirt, dust, bird droppings, and other debris on the panels, hindering their ability to absorb sunlight and convert it to energy. Fortunately, cleaning is not a complex chore.

Well-maintained and clean solar panels deliver reliable energy. Become familiar with the system's monitoring system to keep an eye on energy production. Sudden drops in energy could indicate problems with the panels.

While the monitoring system tracks the overall energy production, it's also beneficial to visually inspect panels periodically. Look for any signs of physical damage, cracks, or discoloration on the panels themselves, or loose wiring connections. The qualified solar installers from San Luis Obispo's Electricraft, Inc., can perform thorough inspections and make repairs.

Professional help from qualified solar technicians is more than just a convenience. Significant damage to the panels, wiring, or inverter requires the skill of licensed electricians who are also qualified solar technicians. Other circumstances that require skilled technical attention include:

Following these best practices helps ensure the entire solar system operates efficiently for many years. Regular cleaning, performance monitoring, and professional help when needed maximize the entire system.
