Adelaide and Australian Solar Care solar panel cleaning

FAQs

What you need to know about caring for your solar panels

Isn't the rain enough to clean my solar panels?

Unfortunately not to the extent to which you are maximising the efficiency of your solar panel system.

Just like your car windscreen needs wipers, your solar panels need help too, to clean off general pollution, traffic dust, dirt, salt residue, bird droppings, mould or the like which has been baked on by the sun. Simply, if vertical windows accumulate dirt and block out light, how much more so will dirt on your solar panels blocking the sunlight affect you?  A clean window looks great, but there is no financial return being generated by cleaning a window, unlike cleaning solar panels.

Will Australian Solar Care cleaning my solar panels affect my warranty?

No, and may in fact help preserve your warranty as reputable Solar Panel manufacturers now recommend cleaning your solar panels as well as the cleaning frequency and how to clean them.

At the very least you will improve the efficiency of your solar panel system to get the most out of your investment.

Will cleaning affect the water quality in my rainwater tanks?

Adelaide Solar Care uses a high tech Ion Exchange Resin Filter in conjunction with its pure water cleaning system equipment, which produces 100% pure water. It is chemical free and perfectly safe for your rainwater tank and garden.

Could I clean my solar panels myself?

Just like people clean their own cars and windows, people clean their own solar panels, however, working at heights can be dangerous and one slip can cost a whole lot more than to have a professional clean your solar panels. Ask yourself, why risk it?

Adelaide Solar Care has the right training, specialised equipment (100% pure water cleaning system) and insurance to get the job done safely.
