    Why is Solar Thermal System Maintenance Important?

    Solar thermal systems, like any other technology, require regular maintenance to function efficiently. Over time, dust, debris, weather conditions, and other problems can impact the performance of your collectors. Keeping on top of your system’s maintenance is therefore important to ensure:

    Optimal Performance: Regular maintenance guarantees that your solar thermal system is operating at its highest efficiency, translating to maximum heat generation.

    Extended Lifespan: Well-maintained systems tend to have a longer lifespan, protecting your initial investment and postponing the need for costly replacements.

    Energy Savings: A well-maintained solar thermal system maximises energy production, which directly contributes to reducing your utility bills.

    Environmental Impact: By keeping your renewable energy system in top shape, you’re actively participating in reducing your carbon footprint and promoting sustainable energy practices.

    As soon as you start to notice a drop in your solar thermal system’s efficiency, it’s worth contacting an expert to take a look for total peace of mind. Our team is always on hand to help. Get in touch today on 0330 124 2941 to discuss your requirements.

    Solar Thermal Maintenance FAQs

    Does my solar thermal system need power flushing?

    Power flushing might be necessary if your solar thermal system has experienced reduced efficiency, circulation issues, signs of sediment buildup, or experiences regular overheating.

    It’s recommended to consult with a professional technician who can assess the condition of your system and determine whether power flushing is needed to restore optimal performance.

    Are my solar thermal panels overheating?

    Evacuated solar thermal panels can occasionally experience overheating, especially during hot and sunny days. However, modern flat plate systems are typically designed with safety features to prevent excessive temperatures. If you suspect your panels are overheating, it’s advisable to have a technician evaluate the system’s temperature controls and settings to ensure they’re operating within safe limits.

    How often should glycol be changed in my solar thermal system?

    The frequency of glycol (antifreeze) changes in a solar thermal system can vary based on the type of glycol used and the system’s specific conditions. As a general guideline, glycol should be checked and replaced if necessary every 3 to 5 years to maintain its effectiveness in preventing freezing and corrosion within the system. However, consulting your system’s manufacturer or a professional technician is recommended for accurate recommendations.

    How long do solar thermal panels last?

    Solar thermal panels are designed to be durable and long-lasting. On average, well-maintained solar thermal panels can last around 20 to 25 years or more. Regular maintenance and proper care can help extend their lifespan. It’s essential to schedule routine inspections to identify any issues early and ensure your panels continue to operate efficiently throughout their lifespan.
