What is power flushing?
If sludge and debris is not removed from heating systems, it can accumulate in radiators, pipework and heat exchangers, causing severe blockages. This diminishes the transfer of heat and can result in pipe, radiator valve and heating control servo valve damage. In some cases this will eventually lead to the premature failure of the boiler.
Power flushing is a popular method of cleaning and maintaining a central heating system. A power flushing unit sends water at high velocity through the system to dislodge and remove debris, limescale, and sludge build-up. A thorough power flush will improve heat distribution throughout the property, subsequently lowering household energy bills and increasing system reliability.
Signs that your central heating system may need power flushing:
Cold spots on radiators (even after bleeding)
Slow to warm central heating system
Discoloured water when bleeding radiators or cloudy tap water
Noisy boilers and heating pumps when starting the system
How we can help…
Did you know that a large number of boiler breakdown call outs are due to dirty water and sludge within the boiler system? If dirt and sludge have built up within your central heating system it can have a huge effect on how well your boiler runs and it’s efficiency. Using state of the art equipment our engineers are able to power flush your system to get it back to optimum operation.
