Periodic Service or a Maintenance Program
- General Solar Service/Yearly Service: Most of Greener Housing Solutions customers have yearly servicing of their solar power systems. We highly recommend this servicing as it is also a great preventer, even though we do not have a crystal ball, there are numerous measures that can be taken to prevent a lot of common issues that can arise within non-maintained and non-serviced solar power systems. All of these measures are actioned on all of our services as well as the customer is given a report of where their system is up to at that stage including any additional recommendations we may have.
- Broken down systems: Just because the solar power inverter is the bearer of bad news, it does not always mean it’s the inverters fault. There are many different parts to a solar power system and Greener Housing Solutions has the expertise and the knowledge to ascertain what the problem is, how it was coursed and what needs to be done to fix the system. Greener Housing Solutions delivers these services as a matter of urgency because we appreciate that every day the customer’s system is down, they are missing out on valuable solar production.
- Solar Panel Cleaning: All of our Solar Panel Cleaning is also attended and completed by our fully qualified CEC Accredited Electricians. This ensures the job is done properly, to Building Code and to Warranty Guidelines.
- Warranty: Greener Housing Solutions has a close relationship with all Australian currently approved solar manufacturers and through this relationship, we are able to provide warranty assistance even to customers that have been installed by companies no longer in the industry. Just because the installer is no longer around, does not necessarily mean the warranty is void.
- Removal and reinstallation: There are numerous reasons why Solar Power Systems need to be removed and reinstalled and some of the most common reason are;
- A roof has been damaged near where the solar panels are. To fix the roof they need to have the panels removed and then reinstalled once the roof has been completed
- New additions to a home or commercial property sometimes need the roofline to be altered and for the safety of the solar power system, the home/commercial property and tradespeople, the panels require removal and de commissioning. Once the addition has been completed, then the panels are reinstalled and the system commissioned
- The whole solar power system has been damaged and needs to be removed with a new one to be installed. Any rebates available at the time are also included.
No matter what the reason is Greener Housing Solutions handles this type of work with the upmost professionalism and without delays as usually time is of the essence and other trades are required for their own individual jobs to be completed. Greener Housing Solutions is equipped and experienced in delivering on time first and second fix applications that do not hold other trade people down and in turn delivering a first-class customer experience.
