Powerflushing

Central heating systems become very dirty. Powerflushing cleans sludge from central heating systems fixing cold radiators and noisy boilers which provides you a warmer home with improved hot water and reduced fuel bills.

Is your shower icy cold? radiators not working? or the boiler has broken down? Did you know 87% of boiler breakdown call outs are due to dirty system water*

What has made your boiler breakdown?

Dirty water and sludge from scale and rust build-up in your heating system causes serious damage. It clogs the boiler’s tiny waterways, damaging the pump and heat exchanger, resulting in boiler breakdown.

Sludge also collects collects in the pipework and at the bottom of radiators causing cold spots and clanging noises as the system fires up. Overall a dirty, sluggish heating systems eats up more gas and costs even more to run.

What is the answer?

Cleaning your heating system! Depending on how dirty your central heating system is will dictate what treatment we recommend. A lightly sludged system may only require a chemical clean but a heavily sludged system will require a powerflush.

Powerflushing tackles the whole heating system. It flushes out the scale, sludge and rust that is lodged at the bottom of radiators and pipework – restoring the central heating system to tip top condition.

After powerflushing..

Once your heating system has been cleaned and efficiency is restored, we will inhibit the system and if required, install a system filter. This will help prevent the system becoming dirty again. By inhibiting the system, we will prevent sludge and rust from reforming which helps to keep the system clean and efficient.

The benefits of a clean heating system

Correct water treatment is the simplest and cheapest way to ensure your boiler and central heating system is protected from breakdown. Powerflushing and a clean heating system will result in;

  • Lower fuel bills
  • Boiler warranty compliance
  • Extend boiler lifespan
  • Optimise performance
