Why should I clean my Solar Panels?
When dirt and debris build on the panels it prevents sunlight from getting through as easily. This decreases the amount of production your panels get. In the winter time if it snows that snow will also pack on top of any dust and debris sitting on the panels and act like sandpaper when it slides off causing micro scraping which can reduce the panels efficiency.
How often should I clean my panels?
It depends on where you live and what’s going on in your area. For Utah, we recommend the average customer clean their solar panels twice per year. Once in the spring and once in the fall. This helps keep your production up all year long and prevents the panels from getting scratched by snow packing onto dust and debris then sliding off the glass. If you’re in a dry climate but don’t get snow in a state like Arizona or Nevada or have a lot of construction happening in your area we would recommend three or four times per year.
How do you clean the Solar panels?
We use a reverse osmosis deionization system to purify the water before spraying it on the panels. This makes sure there’s no calcium spots or hard water residue left on the panels after the cleaning. Then we scrub each panel with a nylon brush. This is a soft bristle brush that’s recommended by the solar manufacturing companies since it allows you to scrub off dirt and grime without any risk of damaging the panels.
How long will the Pigeon Guard last for?
Our pigeon guard is a PVC dipped galvanized steel gridwire. We use this material because it’s highly durable and resistant to rusting. We confidently offer a lifetime warranty on the material and installation of our pigeon guard to give our customers peace of mind.
What should I do if my neighbors have pigeons nesting under their solar panels?
Because pigeons are homeing birds they don’t like to travel or migrate very far. If you're seeing pigeons under your neighbors home the best thing you can do to prevent it at your home is put our pigeon guard up so when the babies hatch from underneath their panels they don’t try to make a new home under yours.
What should I do if I put up a pigeon guard and the birds come back?
Pigeons will typically take 2-3 weeks to figure out that they’ve been evicted from your home. If it’s been longer than that and you’re still seeing them there are still a few things we can do such as bird spikes, bird netting, or repellent.
Will Solar Attic Fans help lower my electric bill?
The key to lower electricity bills is to lessen the amount of time your air conditioner (AC) has to run attempting to cool down your home. When it’s 90 degrees outside, it’s close to 140 degrees in your attic. A solar attic fan sucks out the hot air in your attic and allows the ambient air flow from the outside to replace that hot attic air reducing how much AC usage is required to cool your home. This will not only make the home more comfortable to live in but will also reduce your electric bill, extend the lifespan of your HVAC or AC unit and extend the life of your roof.
How many Solar Attic Fans should I buy?
That depends on how much attic space you have as well as how big of a fan you feel would work best for your home. Our team will do an assessment with you to determine the appropriate solution for your home.
