Full-service solar repair and tune-up
Relying on solar energy to power your San Diego home or business is a great way to help protect the environment and cut down on your energy bills. While your solar panels can serve you efficiently for over 20 years, they do require routine maintenance if they are to remain functional throughout their lifespan.
Solar Repair Services
If you are experiencing issues with your solar panels, you can rely on Action Solar technicians to perform the following maintenance and repair services:
Main interconnection breaker inspection
Circuit breakers are a crucial electrical component of your solar panels in San Diego. They protect your system and your safety by cutting out the power in case of electricity surges, preventing short-circuits and fire hazards. During a maintenance check, our technicians will inspect the interconnection breaker for wear and tear, incorrect model use, and any other damage.
The solar inverter is the component that allows you to use the energy produced by your solar system. It converts the direct current generated by the panels into alternating current which you can use to power your residential or commercial facility.
A faulty inverter can lead to decreased energy production. That is why our solar repair experts will conduct thorough inspections of all the connections between your solar panels, main service, and inverter to make sure you are receiving all the energy that your system produces. Our San Diego professionals will also perform an in-depth cleaning of your inverter to ensure optimal efficiency.
System compliance analysis
Just like any other electrical system, your solar panels need to follow the pertinent building and fire codes in order to ensure the safety of you and your property. If installed and maintained properly, your solar system will not put you at risk. However, if your panels aren’t installed according to code, they may limit the smoke ventilation between the roof and the panels, as well as inhibit roof access in case any fires need to be put out.
Our solar experts in San Diego will perform all the necessary inspections to ensure compliance and protect your safety. In addition to inspecting roof ventilation and access, they will also inspect the placement of wiring systems in order to minimize the risks of electrical fire.
Wire nuts replacement
Wire splice connectors or wire nuts are one of the most common culprits of solar panel failures. This is because some under-qualified and untrained solar installers tend to use improper kinds of wire nuts when connecting wires during a solar installation.
As a part of our solar panel repair and maintenance service, we will check if the wire nuts used on your San Diego solar system are able to withstand the moisture and excessive heat that your panels are constantly exposed to. If not, we will replace the existing nuts in order to prevent corrosion and damage.
Excessive shade can greatly decrease the performance of your solar panels. In order to make sure that your system is at peak efficiency, we will inspect it for any shadows and obstructions that may reduce the energy you get from your panels. After performing all the necessary shading tests, we will devise the most beneficial approach for boosting the efficiency of your system in San Diego.
