Solar Panel Service


Why should you service your Solar Panel System?

 

A Solar Panel Service is crucial, if the system is to operate correctly.

Solar panel service

  • Over time, the antifreeze breaks down and may freeze during a harsh winter. When the antifreeze is broken down, it turns to the consistency of syrup and becomes more difficult to pump.
  • Temperature sensors can become faulty and can give false readings if they are heated beyond their limits.
  • Sensors can sometimes be pulled out of the correct location in the cylinder by a falling towel if they are not secured properly.
  • Software may need to be updated on the controller if it’s outdated.
  • Non return valves may become clogged with dirt if the antifreeze is not changed regularly. This can lead to heat loss at night time.

 

At AEI, we service many solar panel systems each month. 

  • Roughly 50% of these are our own previous jobs.
  • About 25% are from people who cannot get in touch with their original installer for whatever reason. 
  • The final 25% is for our clients like South Dublin County Council, various social housing associations and some of the largest solar panel manufacturers in Ireland.

A full solar service from AEI includes:

 

  • Power flushing of the solar circuit to remove sludge and debris
  • Change of antifreeze fluid to new antifreeze
  • Examination of all connections in the solar loop
  • Examination of all electrical connections in the solar controls
  • Confirm the correct operation of all controls
  • Setting the correct pressure inside the expansion vessel
  • Calibrate the pump flow rate to suit the solar panels on site
  • Setting the correct antifreeze pressure in the system
  • Confirm the correct settings are set on the controller
  • Check the operation of all valves in the system
  • A commissioning certificate will be issued for your records
