Solar Knowledge is POWER: Maintaining Your Solar Panel System with Ease

As home improvements go, a solar panel system from Affordable Solar promises to be extremely low maintenance. Every solar system we install comes with a 5-year performance guarantee, a 10-year workmanship warranty from Affordable Solar, and 25-year equipment warranties from the component manufacturers. Additional warranty support is also provided by Affordable Solar.

 In other words, we guarantee your system will produce the amount of energy we tell you it will produce, we warranty the work done on your home-wires, clips, conduit, breakers, and we will fix any problems arising from the work at no cost to you. It means that for 25 years, bankable manufacturers will replace the products that do not function properly in your system. The additional warranty assurance provided by Affordable Solar clearly states that in the event of a component failure, we will submit a warranty claim on your behalf, pay for shipping both directions, and install the replacement component………all at NO cost to you! 

In addition, we empower our customers with the ability to remotely monitor their solar array. This means you can view the production of your system from your computer or phone at your convenience. If you have any concerns about the performance of your system, call our service team to check it out.

Talk about peace of mind!

For your part, we recommend hosing off your solar panels once or twice a year. The performance of your array will drop incrementally when covered in dust, especially after the spring and winter winds. Spraying off your panels is not required maintenance, but it can boost your system’s performance by 5-7%, giving you a better return on your investment.

Depending on your home’s location, snow may collect on your solar modules. Most of our customers just allow the reliable New Mexico sunshine to melt the snow. However, for those who live in higher elevations or have flat roofs, the snow can be brushed off your modules to restore them to full performance. The sturdy glass on the front of the modules will not scratch or break when a brush or broom is used to clear the snow. However, if you are unable to remove the snow, don’t worry, the sun’s rays will soon make their way to the modules and heat them enough to melt the snow.
