Solar water heating is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way of providing hot water for homes. It is a renewable energy source that uses the energy from the sun to heat water, which can then be used for a variety of applications such as bathing, washing dishes, and laundry. Solar water heating systems are long-lasting and relatively easy to maintain, but they do require regular maintenance to ensure optimal performance.
Regular maintenance of a solar water heating system is essential to ensure that it is running at its best and that it is safe to use. To ensure that your system is running optimally, the most important thing to do is to keep it clean. This means checking the collector panels and pipes for any debris or dirt that may be blocking the flow of water. Cleaning the panels and pipes should be done on a regular basis, preferably at least once a year. If the system is in an area that is prone to dust and dirt, then more frequent cleaning may be necessary.
When it comes to performing maintenance on your solar water heating system, it is important to use the right tools and materials. This includes a soft brush for cleaning the panels, a screwdriver for tightening screws, and a wrench for loosening any connections. It is also important to have a good supply of replacement parts on hand in case any repairs are needed. At ACR Solar, we are professionals when it comes to maintaining solar water heaters. Our technicians have the experience to keep your solar water heaters running all year round.
It is also important to inspect the system for any signs of wear and tear or damage. This includes checking the seals on the pipes and the connections between the pipes and the collector panels. It is also important to inspect the insulation around the pipes and the collector panels, as this can help to prevent heat loss and ensure that the system is working at its best.

Propylene glycol is the most common heat transfer fluid in the freeze protected closed loop solar water heating systems used in this area. These fluids degrade overtime and, just like with your car, should be checked and changed every 5 years to properly maintain your system.
