Servicing is a standard requirement for anything electrical and your solar system is no different. Additionally, most of the major components of your solar system are exposed to the harsh Australian weather and regular checking and maintenance keeps you on top of standard wear and tear.

There are many reasons why it is important to service and maintain your solar system. Regular system checks can: 

Australian Standards

Ensure your system is up-to-date with the changing standards as the industry develops regulatory bodies.

Recalls

Identify recalled components, helping with a smooth replacement process.

Safety

Provide safety of your home and your family, knowing your system is operating as it should.

Hazard

Protect against faults. By installing solar, your roof becomes a small generation plant producing energy. Regular servicing can find a hazard before it becomes a real problem.

Efficiency

Maintain peak capacity. The reduction of efficiency can be extreme if your panels are shaded with build-up for long periods of time.
