Solar Panel repair - Miami Fl
There are instances when your solar panels can malfunction or get damaged. In those cases you have several options:
– Fix the panels if possible. It’s best to let professionals handle the repairs, but some people prefer the DIY route.
– Replace the panels if necessary. If the damage is extensive, this is the only option.
– Repair/replace the panels + roof repair. If the roof is damaged in a storm for example, you would need to have roofers fix the damage independent of the solar panel repair costs.
The most common solar panel repairs
The most common problems that might occur with solar panels are cracked panels, broken glass, and loose connections.
Fixing cracks on the panels can only last one or two hours to repair. If a crack is too big, a replacement panel will be needed. Sometimes a repairman can use soldering to connect the edges together and repair the unit. If you notice a crack, the best course of action is to address it as soon as possible. That way you will save on repair costs.
While there are price differences in individual solar panel costs, it is cheaper to repair by soldering a cracked panel, than to install a new one.
BROKEN GLASS PANEL
The cost of fixing broken glass could be very low, or high, depending on the damage. If you are able to remove broken glass, an expert might be able to change it and place a new one. The panel could still be operational even with the broken glass, but it will have a reduced output because the broken glass creates “shade”. Make sure to check for output before you throw your broken cell away. It is possible for an expert to apply stained-glass tape or epoxy to secure it.
LOOSE CONNECTION REPAIR
It might take only an hour of work to repair a loose connection, just like with cracks. As the panels heat and cool, loose solder connections cause the connection to cut in and out. If you rap the panels with your hand sharply, you may notice cells cutting in and out. To access the backs of the cells for servicing, a professional can cut through the soft silicone encapsulating the cells. It’s also possible that they’ll have to unsolder and then re-solder the equipment. The cuts and cushioning material can then be replaced and/or repaired.
