After installing solar panels, there’s still the issue of maintenance to consider. Axiom 360 does electrical troubleshooting and repair for all their customers post-installation.

Troublingly enough, a lot of people seem to think that all you need to have solar panels is to buy them and have them installed. Everything after that will be a breeze. This is not ideal. A solar panel, like any other kind of heavy-duty equipment, requires constant maintenance and upkeep; and when it suffers some degree of damage, repairs are most definitely needed.

Imagine machinery as sort of like the human body; it’s made up of a hundred different bits and pieces, all working to keep the whole thing together. And, as with the human body, a machine can break down over time. Constituent parts degrade, filaments overheat, gears rust, etc. Then, there are external issues, like unnecessary impact, moisture seepage, etc.

When equipment fails, it’s almost certainly because of any of the issues mentioned above. Yet, one can never truly know without checking it out. 

This is where troubleshooting comes in.

What is even troubleshooting?

You might have already heard about troubleshooting. It happens quite a lot when you’re working with computers all the time. When there are issues with the computer you want to find out, you have to do troubleshooting. The same goes for machines and other tools. 

Troubleshooting, in this sense, is the process that someone does to investigate the performance of a circuit and establish what needs to be done to fix the problem. This is an extremely important thing to do.

Depending on the nature of the problem and the kind of equipment you are working with, the task of troubleshooting can be troublesome. There are times the solution is obvious, while there are certainly other times when the problem-solving needs a more deft and capable hand. But don’t fret. Axiom 360 is precisely there to offer up its expertise in troubleshooting and repair.

But first, let’s talk about what makes an expert troubleshooter.

The single most desirable characteristic an expert troubleshooter has is their ability to quickly and accurately determine what the issue is in a short span of time. Whatever the problem might be, something common or something exclusive to your malfunctioning machine, an expert troubleshooter can diagnose it in just a short amount of time—given reason, of course. 

Another characteristic of expert troubleshooters has their uncanny talent to, in tandem with the previous trait, skillfully replace or repair only those parts of the machine that need replacing or repairing. There is no overextending and mistakes with expert troubleshooters. 

That is because they typically have several years of experience under their belt. Expert troubleshooters also have an extensive understanding of how the equipment functions. What’s more, they also have a thorough understanding of the underlying principles of different electrical circuits and components. Through several troubleshooting sessions conducted, these experts have precisely developed a system of their own for troubleshooting—one that adheres handily to their skills, ideas, and experiences. This added to a sensitive and detailed grasp of prints, diagrams, and test instruments, allows expert troubleshooters to be as effective and as efficient as they are.

These traits—experience, accuracy, meticulousness—and more the Axiom 360 team has. And they’ve made a great effort to hone their skills and refine their systems. Axiom 360 is where electrical troubleshooting and repair services are offered with a guarantee of success and reliability.

Knowing That Your Solar Panels Have Problems

In the future, solar panels will be as ubiquitous as cars are today. For now, they are very handy investments, especially for homes and businesses. But, as with most machines, owners—and a good number of them—don’t have the slightest idea of knowing if the solar panel they bought is having problems or experiencing any malfunctions; some wouldn’t even know if it was functioning properly or not. This is not so surprising when you think about it—solar panels are relatively new for a lot of consumers, and the ins and outs of their use haven’t spread out all that much. 

And although a basic operating manual is attached to every purchase and installation, only a few buyers actually take the time and read it. 

The best and simplest method of knowing whether or not your solar panel is working is by checking its system performance estimate and comparing it with how much energy the solar panel is actually generating.

If you do spot a problem and want to know more about it, Axiom 360 has got your back.
