Solar panels are becoming more and more common on rooftops in Manheim, Lititz, Gap, Landisville, Quarryville, Elizabethtown, Millersville, and throughout the greater Lancaster area. That’s because more homeowners are investing in solar panels as a way to lower energy bills and reduce dependence on energy companies. People in Lancaster County know that solar panels can save money while still being good for the environment. Though, without regular solar panel cleaning and maintenance, they will lose efficiency.
While reports on energy lost due to dirty or compromised solar panels vary, everyone agrees that clean, unimpaired solar panels work better than solar panels covered in dust, grime, bird droppings, or mildew.
After all, solar panels rely on sunlight to produce energy. Sleek, high-tech solar panels were designed to capture the optimal amount of light. But if part or all of your solar panels are obstructed with dirt, grime, mildew or algae, the efficiency of the solar panels can be reduced.
In Lancaster County, walls and driveways usually receive the same moisture and sunlight as your roof. So, if you see mildew or discoloration on your home’s exterior walls, walkways, or driveway, your solar panels may also be dirty or covered in mildew. That means it is time to call Atkins professional solar panel cleaning team.
