    Solar Panel And Solar Collector Installation

    The efficiency of an active solar energy system not only depends on the quality and durability of the components, but also on effective siting, system design and solar panel installation. So it is very important to contract with an experienced installer who is able to design and install the system properly.

    The solar panel installation process for an average residential solar system usually takes less than two days. For a larger commercial PV solar panel installations, more time is required and most installers will work within required deadlines as necessary.

    For a residential solar systems, a solar installer supplies all of the essential equipment for the scaffolding and solar panel system installation. A professional panel installer will also notify your district network operator and provide you with all important warranties and certifications you may require to receive a feed-in tariff or other financial incentives.

    Once the solar panel installation is completed, the solar system has to be properly maintained to optimise its efficiency and avoid breakdowns.

    Not all solar systems require the same type of maintenance, but 8–16 hours can annually be expected. It is advised to set up a calendar with a list of maintenance tasks that the installer and component manufacturers recommend.

    Solar panels have few moving components and typically last up to 30 years or longer. After the solar panel installation, little maintenance is required.

    Hot water solar panel installation is similar to PV solar panel installation. But concerning the maintenance of hot water panels it is important to prevent freezing damage, i.e. with the use of a frost-resistant heating liquid. Although most solar water heating systems are covered under a homeowner´s insurance policy, damage from freezing is generally not included. It is recommendable to contact your insurance provider to find out details of your policy in regard to solar panels and the installation process.

    We recommend you to contract a solar installation company in your area. After the solar panel installation they will be close enough to perform any maintenance measure required.
