How to Prepare Your Home Solar System for Summer

This entry was posted in Solar Services on by .

With long days of sunshine and relentless triple-digit temperatures just around the corner, it’s important to ensure your home solar system is operating efficiently now. The following preventive maintenance strategies can help ensure you’re getting the most out of your investment in solar.


A physical inspection of your entire solar system can catch potential problems before they cause damage to your panels or invertors. A visit by a qualified solar technician can ensure your panels and electrical and mechanical components are completely inspected and functioning properly.


If your solar panels are covered in dust, pollen, or debris, your solar system will be significantly hindered in its ability to generate energy. Though rain may wash off a light dusting of pollen or dust, solar panels can collect significant amounts of grime that can stick to the panels and require a thorough cleaning to remove. Bird droppings over time can also affect solar panel output when left uncleaned. A solar panel cleaning will guarantee that debris is safely removed off the panels before summer begins.


Your solar system will be working throughout summer to generate solar energy for your household. But, shade from trees, tree branches, and other obstructions can decrease solar energy production. Removing shade-producers now will dramatically increase system efficiency going forward.
