Solar Hot Water System
Solar hot water systems are relatively low maintenance, but it is still important to give your system the attention it deserves in order to keep it running smoothly and efficiently and providing you with an abundant supply of hot water for your home.
Maintaining Your Solar Thermal System
It is critical that you inspect your solar thermal system on a regular basis to check for any obvious issues and to ensure that your system continues to work at maximum efficiency and that you are getting the most out of your investment.
Maintain Their Cleanliness
Because of the variability of The Great British Weather, dirt and dust are unlikely to accumulate on your solar panels, making them self-cleaning, but it is worth keeping an eye out to ensure that there is no buildup of grime that could reduce the effectiveness of the panels.
Keep an eye out for any encroaching greenery that may be overshadowing your roof and obstructing the precious sunlight from your panels. (Before you start felling trees, make sure you check with the appropriate authorities!)Keep an eye out for dangling trees.
Keep an eye out for any infringing greenery that has sprouted up and may be overshadowing your roof and blocking the precious sunlight from your panels. (Before you start felling trees, make sure you get permission from the appropriate authorities!)
Keep an eye on the system on a regular basis. Perform a quick visual check every now and then to ensure that there are no obvious flaws. That there are no leaks around the joints (antifreeze has a distinct pungent odor), that the pressure is correct, that the fan operates as it should, that there are no obvious cracks or damage, and so on.
