A lovingly installed and maintained Thermocell

This Thermocell installation was promising with just the slightest hint of corrosion of one small part of the collector surfaces; but being only two years old, no judgement can be made as to durability. Can anybody provide evidence that this make will last the distance better than others?

No building consent; but installed by the owner.

Thermocell panels come with a 20 year guarantee. You want to make sure that they have been installed properly- like, you haven't got the panel touching the aluminium frame, which would kill anything (they provide rubber stand-off mats for that purpose). I've seen ancient (and I mean ancient) thermocell panels that look fine.

I own a home that has Thermocell solar. I would guess it is between 6 and 10 years old (installed by the last owner).
It seems to work well, but I would be interested in who offers checks of this system and can make suggestions for improvements, eg a timer.
