What is included with a Solar Thermal Hot Water Cylinder System Service

When servicing a solar hot water system, there are several tasks that should be carried out to ensure that the system is working efficiently and safely. These tasks may include:

01

Checking the solar collectors for damage, debris or any signs of wear and tear

This may involve inspecting the pipes, valves, and pumps for any leaks or blockages.

02

Checking the fluid level in the system and topping it up if necessary

The fluid may need to be replaced if it is contaminated or has deteriorated.

03

Checking the expansion vessel pressure and adjusting it if necessary

This will help prevent damage to the system caused by high pressures.

04

Checking the performance of the pump and controller

Ensuring that they are operating correctly and efficiently.

05

Checking the insulation on pipes and the storage tank

Ensuring that heat loss is minimised.

06

Checking the safety valves and controls

To ensure they are functioning correctly and meet current safety standards.

07

Flushing the system

This is to remove any sediment or debris that may have accumulated over time.

08

Testing the solar hot water system

This is to ensure that it is producing hot water at the correct temperature and volume.

What is included with a Solar Thermal Hot Water Cylinder System Repair

Solar thermal hot water systems are generally reliable, but like any technology, they can experience issues from time to time. Here are some common issues that can occur with solar thermal hot water systems:

01

Poor performance

If the system is not producing hot water as expected, it could be due to a variety of issues, such as low solar radiation, a malfunctioning pump or controller, or a faulty sensor. A professional technician can diagnose the problem and recommend a solution.

02

Leaks

The system’s pipes and connections can develop leaks over time due to wear and tear or damage from the elements. Leaks can cause a drop in pressure and reduced system efficiency.

03

Blockages

The system’s pipes and connections can also become blocked by debris, such as dirt or sediment, reducing the flow of fluid and leading to poor system performance.

04

Freeze damage

In areas where temperatures drop below freezing, the system’s pipes and connections can freeze and potentially crack, leading to leaks and reduced system performance.

05

Airlocks

Air can sometimes get trapped in the system, preventing the fluid from circulating properly and leading to reduced system efficiency.

06

Scaling

If the water in the system is hard, it can lead to scaling and mineral build up on the inside of the pipes and collectors, reducing the system’s performance.

07

Electrical issues

If the pump or controller is not functioning properly, it could be due to an electrical issue, such as a blown fuse or a faulty connection.
