Power Flushing is an essential process when a system starts to fail, and cold radiators are a sign of blockages in the system. Although cold spots on radiators can be down to air in the system, this is sometimes contributed to a blockage. The best way to check is to test the system by bleeding the radiators, and if the liquid that is coming out of the radiators is dirty it’s a sure sign that the system needs a Power Flush to perform properly. Another sign is a continuously banging boiler or the boiler constantly cuts out.
Continuous use of a heating system generates a build-up of corrosion that develops in heating systems, which will directly effect the performance of your boiler. As the corrosion builds, an iron oxide slush will lodge inside your boiler and pipework, subsequently preventing radiators from heating properly.
Central heating power flushing works by inserting chemicals around the system to dislodge any rust and corrosion, which in turn creates a clearer and cleaner pipework allowing radiators to heat up quickly and more effectively. The Power Flush machine connects to a magnetic filter, and this collects and clears the internal sludge. The process continues with chemicals injected into the heating system to flush it out properly and then balances pH levels with neutralising crystals.
Lowers heating bills
Blocked heating system can dramatically increase your heating bills, as your boiler takes longer to heat your home and is therefore left on longer. A lack of circulation and subsequent internal build-up of sludge can often lead to the need for expensive repairs too, with flow rates dropping and the system struggling to perform. Power flushing will increase efficiency of your heating system, lowers your energy bills, gives longer life to appliances, and greatly reduces any potential boiler breakdowns.
