All You Need to Know About Solar Panels and Solar Inverter Repairs

In the modern world, characterised by fast depleting energy sources, one of the most effective ways to lower your energy bills is to install solar panels to tap into the renewable energy source. For the solar systems to work effectively, they should be maintained and serviced regularly. If you find out at some point that your energy bills are increasing above the usual, you should consider contacting service providers who offer repair services and have it checked. Here are some things you need to know about solar panel and inverter repairs.

Solar Panel Repairs

Solar panels are crucial in transforming solar energy into heat energy and electrical energy for domestic and commercial use. Given how they function, they are prone to damages. To be able to repair solar panels effectively, it is essential to understand some of the common issues/ damages that you should fix and address.

Common Problems with Solar Panels:

Loose Wiring – It is common to find that your panels have some loose wires that may be obstacles to its efficient use. The cables are ultimately responsible for the transfer of energy for use. If not correctly fixed, the flow of current may be interrupted.

Micro Cracks – Sometimes microscopic fractures may appear on the surface of the solar panel. With time, these cracks may increase in size and become more apparent.. If this happens, the ability of the panel to trap heat is reduced significantly. The cracks may occur due to bad handling during shipping or installation, or due to changes in temperature and other weather changes.

PID Effect – In some cases, the voltage fluctuations between the earthing of the solar and the panel generated voltage can lead to potential induced degradation (PID). If this happens, it is crucial to contact experts to rectify the issue.

Other damages include possible inner module damage caused by external factors. Whichever type of damage that you identify with your solar panel systems, you should determine whether and how they need to be repaired. While some repairs can be conducted on-site, others would have to be taken to the repair centres.

Panel Cleaning

Sometimes it just takes accumulated dirt and dust to reduce the performance of a solar system. Depending on your environment, weather conditions, and the presence of birds and bats, you may need to clean your solar panels more often. On the Gold Coast, residents need to clean their solar panels at least once a year to maintain their optimum functioning.

Service Process

At Omega Solar + Batteries, we have experts who will use the latest technology to examine your system and determine if the problem is with the panel and recommend the best corrective action or troubleshooting procedure. Depending on the extent of the damage, we will work out the cost of repair. We will present repair options and let you choose the best method within your budget and meet your expectations. Once the appropriate option is selected, we will work on your panel to return it to good working condition.

Solar Inverter Repairs

Solar inverters play an essential role in changing the variable direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC) to be transmitted for use. As such, if your inverter is damaged, you will not be able to get the energy for use in your home or business. If you notice that you are not receiving any solar power, it may be a problem with the inverter. On the Gold Coast, solar inverters may be prone to damage by electrical storms. In such cases, we can help you follow up on insurance claims. We offer solar inverter repairs on the Gold Coast at affordable prices. Whether you need a full replacement or just repairs, we will present your preferred repair method.

Common Solar Inverter Problems

Battery Not Charging – You may find that the controller is not charging the battery. It may be a problem with the controller, or the batteries may be damaged. Therefore, it is necessary to involve experts who can properly diagnose the problem and fix it accordingly.

Improper Loading – This can be caused by fuses that are damaged or the tripping of breakers. Engage specialists to check the fuses to ensure they are not frayed or defective.

Shortened Back-Up Time – This scenario can occur if there is too much power consumption or when the battery is not charging correctly. Our team will be able to determine what exactly is interrupting the back time. In some cases, they may have to remove the extra load or, in other instances, prevent the loss of electrolytes from the batteries.

Incorrect Disconnection of Loads – The controller works well if it can receive proper battery voltage. If this is not the case, there may be a problem with the battery connection. It is crucial to check the batteries regularly as part of the solar system maintenance routines. Most of the inverter problems originate from battery malfunction or failure.

Service Process

The first step is to determine if there is a problem with your solar inverter. In some cases, we may offer guidance over the phone on how to troubleshoot the issue. However, if the damage is extensive, we will send our technicians to assess the extent of the damage. This is followed by the determination of the cost of repair. If it just needs a replacement for a simple part, we will help you at low costs. We also do our best to present clients with the most cost-effective repair option. Once the cost has been agreed on, our qualified technicians will fix the problem and return your solar inverter to good working condition.

Many of the problems in solar panels and solar inverters may go left unnoticed for a long time. It is essential to be on the lookout for any slight increases in energy bills. Regular maintenance procedures are also critical in preventing breakdowns and system failures. It also helps to increase the lifespan of your solar system and guarantee a return on investment. If you have any issues, contact reliable service providers such as Omega Solar + Batteries, for quality and affordable repair services.
