Breakdowns and Repairs

A Solar Thermal System is an excellent way of using energy from the sun to heat up water. Although very reliable, sometimes solar thermal systems do need breakdown.

There are a number of common problems that can occur throughout the whole system. These include:

  • Failed Pump
  • Low pressure issues
  • Leaks 
  • Loss of or low antifreeze 
  • Corrosion in the immersion tank

Regular servicing of Solar Thermal Systems

Many property owners are often surprised to learn about the necessity of regular servicing for solar thermal panels. Similar to maintaining your car, regular servicing is essential. Key components within the system, including pumps and valves, require consistent upkeep to ensure optimal performance. Scheduled servicing not only minimises operational costs but also maximises production, ultimately extending the system’s lifespan. Recognising the importance of routine maintenance is fundamental to ensuring the continued efficiency and durability of solar thermal installations.

Solar Thermal Service

As a general rule of thumb, a standard solar thermal service should include the following, amongst several other checks to ensure that the systems is performing correctly:

  • A visual inspection of pipework, insulation, collectors and sensors
  • Check of the systems’ hydraulic pressure
  • Check the level and quality of the systems’ antifreeze
  • Check the flow rate
  • Test of pressure relief valve

What is fluid in the system?

One of the critical considerations for maintaining the optimal performance of your solar thermal system revolves around the heat transfer fluid. Ensuring the correct pH and antifreeze-protection levels are maintained is paramount, necessitating fluid replacement every 5 years. Neglecting this crucial aspect can lead to potentially serious and costly consequences.

It’s imperative to note that topping up the solar transfer fluid is not an adequate solution. Instead, a thorough and methodical approach is required, involving the flushing out and cleaning of the system before introducing the new transfer fluid. This meticulous procedure is essential to uphold the integrity of the solar thermal system, guaranteeing its longevity and continued efficiency. Regular attention to these details reflects a commitment to the sustained excellence of your solar thermal investment.
