Keeping Your Photovoltaic System Trouble-Free
Install a home photovoltaic system, and you’ll have a free, reliable source of power for decades that requires little or no work on your part once it’s installed.
A high-quality PV installation is the key to ensuring that your photovoltaic array produces electricity effectively for many years to come. To reach your goal of securing trouble-free solar power for your home, follow our simple steps.
Choose the Right Photovoltaic System Contractor
Cost is a factor for anyone investing in solar power, but automatically choosing the solar energy system contractor with the lowest price isn’t always in your best interest. Look for a licensed, certified professional photovoltaic installer with several years of experience.
And for a trouble-free system installation, make sure the company you hire doesn’t use subcontractors.
Install Brand-Name Photovoltaic System Components
As the saying goes, you get what you pay for — and brand-name solar components are well worth the price. Large, established companies are known for producing the most reliable solar energy system products, and they will be around to honor their warranties.
If you install solar panels and inverters from an unknown manufacturer, you’re more likely to experience problems down the line, with no guarantee the manufacturer will still be in business.
Keep Pests Away from Your Photovoltaic System
Squirrels, chipmunks and birds like to create nests under solar panels, and rodents are notorious for chewing through electrical wires. Both issues can be destructive to a photovoltaic array.
If you already have critters scampering around on your rooftop, talk to your professional PV contractor about wire management strategies. Installing screening around the perimeter of your solar panels can also help keep rooftop pests from wreaking havoc.
Install a Solar Monitor
A solar monitor allows you to keep an eye on the production of your PV panel system. And just as important, a monitor can be set up to alert you to changes in electricity output. If your photovoltaic array ever has a problem, you’ll know immediately.
Installing a monitor is one of the best ways to ensure that your solar panels operate as they should.
