Birds can cause unwelcomed damaged to your solar panels at any time of the year. They can be a real nuisance when they decide to settle on your property. Not only can their droppings spread different kinds of diseases to humans they also corrode, stain building materials and clog drains. They can cause various issues such as:
Property damage – Birds often house in gutters, under roof corners, window sills, AC vents, balconies, and drains suitable for building nests. Excessive bird mess covering the rooftops, windows, walls, balconies, passages, and staircase creates a dirty and unhygienic environment. Bird droppings can also clog the gutters and drains, leading to water seepage problems. Birds can also damage air conditioning external equipment and insulation of the refrigerant pipes and render the air conditioning equipment inefficient or faulty. Some bird poop can leave stains on the building exteriors and damage expensive façade and paints, making the building look dull and dirty.
Thus, we must focus on bird-proofing our buildings to avoid financial losses.
Solar panel effectiveness –Nowadays, solar power is one of the leading renewable energy sources. Since solar panels are installed on the roof of many builds, they are prone to become homes for many bird species. Bird litter and nests can reduce the effectiveness of the solar panels. It becomes challenging to clean and restore the littered solar panels. Keeping these things in mind, it is clear that bird-proofing solar panels are essential to maintain the peak power output of solar panels.
Health damage- Birds can not only cause a mess to properties, but their droppings can also spread various diseases. They are among the most significant health hazards of lung-related illnesses in modern cities. Their droppings become powdery on drying and then are blown away by the wind. In addition, their droppings can contaminate food items, which can cause severe bacterial diseases if ingested by humans.
