If your central heating system is sluggish and not performing as it should, a Power Flush will clear the sludge, rust and debris that can cause serious and costly damage. Leaving you with a boiler and radiators that are clear of contaminants and working more efficiently, costing you less to run.
Symptoms That Your System Needs A Power Flush
There are a number of warning signs that your heating system will benefit from a power flush. All the symptoms relate to a clogging of the heating systems pipes, or from corrosion that affects your boiler’s efficiency. It’s time to call us if you experience:
- Cold spots on your radiators
- Excessive boiler noise
- Discoloured water when you bleed your radiators
- Cloudy tap water
We also recommend that a power flush is carried out when installing a new boiler onto an existing (and older) heating system. This is because new boilers use a condensing method, which may disturb any contaminants already present in your pipes. These contaminants could then cause damage to your new boiler.
How A Power Flush Works
The core component of any heating system is the boiler. When you have your boiler replaced or renewed, it must be cleansed to a code of practice that is set out by the Boiler Manufacturers’ Benchmark Scheme.
At Eddie Plumbing Services, we use purpose built power flushing pumps which are designed to dislodge and clear any sludge or debris in your heat system pipes. This ensures that your heating system meets its codes of practice.
The number one goal of a powerflush is to return a heating systems circulation to 100% efficiency. It does this by connecting a high flow/low pressure pumping unit to the circulation pump on your boiler. Strong cleaning chemicals are added to the circulation of water to ensure a complete cleanse.
The chemicals that are used normally include a crust breaker and remover, a de-scaler, and a corrosion inhibitor. These chemicals help to break down any sludge or debris that is attached to the pipes, to break down any limescale, and to prevent further pipe corrosion.
How Can A Powerflush Help Me?
By having a qualified plumber conduct a power flush on your boiler, you are ensuring that your heating system is working to 100% efficiency. If you do not have your system power flushed then your system will continue to decline in efficiency and your home will be wasting energy. This is because you are heating up your boiler but your home will stay cold.
Once your central heating has been cleansed you can expect:
- Pipes and radiators to get hotter quicker
- A more cost efficient system
- Your boiler to be placed under less stress
- Increased life of the boiler
- A more even distribution of heat throughout your home
