Solarwise is a new Concept maintenance plan, for an application form please call us
Solarwise is a Maintenance and Repair plan for Solar Hot Water Systems, and is designed to offer peace of mind for a fixed cost based on monthly direct debit mandate, starting at £20.00 per month.
We have undertaken many repairs over the past twelve months, and unfortunately many of the issues associated with Solar Systems are poor Installation Practice, and a lack of Understanding the Client Requirements, too many times we find systems oversized, with Hot Water Cylinders undersized based on the Collector size - it is our aim to bring your system upto Current Good Practice.
To guide you further the following Schedule will not only detail what it covers, but also give guidance in the event of System Failures.Solar Hot Water if Installed correctly and reguarly maintained will give many years of trouble free operation,
We will Service the Solar System Annually based on the following, and will take approxiametly 2 hours to complete, plus consumable goods such as Solar fluid upto 5 Litres
- Check Solar Fluid frost protection level
- Check PH Value of Solar FluidCheck System pressure Check Circulation Pump Function and Flow rate of Fluid
- Remove Air from the System
- Check Hot Water Temperatures and adjust if necessary
- Check Expansion tank pressure charge and adjust refill Solar Fluid to correct levels
- Visual inspection of Controller and Setting, adjust if necessary
- Visual Check of Solar Collector and Fixings
- Check Pipe Insulation for Damage Check and tighten all joints if necessary
We have found that the most common problem associated with System Failure is
Incorrect system pressure being maintained, and or Loss of pressure through leak Poor Inhibitor and Antifreeze Levels, and Degradation of Fluid. We include to Top Up and Replace up to 5 Litres of Chemical and also Flush out the Old in Full if needed, the Chemical will be charge in addition but Labour is included in the Monthly/Yearly ChargeSystem Expansion Vessel losing air cushion or being damaged by too much heatBadly Installed systems with no Safety Devices incorporated, and systems which can overheat and stagnate (turn to a gas such as Steam)Incorrect System temperatures set within the controllerpoor time control of the Boiler source providing hot water at times when no solar gain is present Our Maintenance plan covers for all the Labour Costs upto £400.00 per annum, an Annual Service as detailed above, along with any small amounts of Fluid, but unfortunately all parts will be invoiced seperately, as we are finding this too much of a cost to fund, which is mainly down to being unable to get specialist original parts, and finding we have to replace with higher grade UK available components
