Solar System Services & Maintenance

Professional Solar Service, Repair, and Maintenance From Impact Solar

One of the most common questions asked during the solar consultation process is, “Who do I turn to for service and support if my installer goes out of business?” Unfortunately, this is a reality that homeowners may face. Solar systems don’t require regular preventive maintenance, but that doesn’t mean you won’t face equipment-related issues at some point in time.

Equipment issues aside, you may simply need to remove the solar system in preparation to replace your roof. The bright side is that there are options out there for you to turn to. Impact Solar offers support and maintenance services for solar systems that were not installed by our team and subsequently not covered by our Workmanship Warranty. If you have a service inquiry you would like more information on, please fill out a Contact Form (link) providing your phone number and address.

Do Solar Panels Need Maintenance?

A well-maintained solar panel operates at its full potential and ensures maximum energy production. Dust and debris accumulation can hinder your solar system’s ability to generate clean energy, and a faulty inverter or micro inverter can create problems for your panels as well. 


While keeping them clean is vital for optimizing their performance, rooftop solar panels are generally low maintenance. After you install solar panels, you won’t need to worry about cleaning them regularly unless you live in a particularly dusty area where debris accumulates at a faster rate.

Solar Energy Systems Have No Moving Parts

Residential solar systems don’t have any moving parts. The absence of mechanical components means there’s less wear and tear over time, meaning they won’t need to be maintained constantly to generate solar power.

Solar Panels Were Made to Endure Constant Sun Exposure

A solar panel system can withstand years of exposure to the sun, as they are designed with materials that can endure prolonged sunlight without degrading. Most panels have protective coatings that shield them from UV rays and other environmental factors.

Solar Panel Systems Last For Many Years

A solar installation can last for many years — often around 25 to 30 years or more — thanks to their robust design and durable materials. They can withstand various weather conditions, from intense heat to heavy snow.

Solar System Owners Should Monitor Their System

Even though solar panel installations are relatively low maintenance, keeping an eye on their energy output is important. If the energy output decreases, it could indicate a problem, such as an obstruction or damage to the panels. Regular monitoring allows for timely maintenance or adjustments.

Solar Equipment and System Repairs

A solar system is made up of several different components that work in tandem to generate clean energy, including solar panels, inverters, microinverters, and optimizers. While solar panels are designed to be robust and withstand harsh weather conditions, other components might need replacement or repair.

Microinverters and optimizers, the heart of a solar system, are susceptible to potential wear and tear over time. Solar panel companies, like Impact Solar, offer an optimizer replacement service as part of their solar repair and maintenance.

Moreover, in case of significant changes like installing a new roof or moving to a new location, the solar system would require professional handling. The careful removal and reinstallation of solar panels need skilled technicians to prevent damage and ensure optimal performance.

What are the most common solar panel problems?

Common solar panel problems can range from broken solar panels and inverter failures to microinverter malfunction and optimizer issues. Sometimes, issues may arise due to the accumulation of dust and debris on the panels, obstructing sunlight and reducing efficiency. Animals like squirrels can also cause damage, for which Impact Solar offers specific services like critter guard or squirrel guard installation.

How often do solar panels need to be serviced?

Solar panels should ideally be serviced at least once a year. Regular service can keep your panels operating at their full potential. Impact Solar offers an annual inspection service that includes a complete check of the solar system, from panels to connections, inverters, and microinverters, ensuring your investment is well-protected.

Do solar panels need to be cleaned regularly?

Dust, dirt, and other debris can accumulate on the surface of solar panels, which can reduce their efficiency by blocking sunlight. Regular cleaning ensures the panels perform optimally.
