A Powerflush is a cleansing process for your boiler. During this process any sludge, rust, dirt and debris that is likely to accumulate in your system overtime, will be removed. If these substances are left in your system unattended, they can cause blockages and corrosion. This will affect the efficiency of your boiler and will eventually lead to a breakdown. Completing a regular powerflush maintains the health of your system and saves on emergency plumbing costs.
What Is Power Flushing?
As your central heating system ages over time, the inside on the pipework and radiators are prone to start building up rust. All systems and models are prone to this default. The scientific word for this build up rust is called Oxidation. This will prevent the water from flowing freely through your central heating system. In central heating, hot water is pushed through the pipes to your radiators. This is what provides heat. The better your water flows, the more efficiently your heating system will operate. During a power flush on your heating system, your engineer will use carefully managed cleaning solutions to flush through your system and remove build-up. It requires specialist equipment and years of experience to complete this work correctly and safely, therefore a qualified engineer is essential.
Benefits of Power Flushing
Once a power flush has been completed, hot water will be able to move around the system freely to reach your radiators. This means your radiators can heat up quickly and efficiently with no cold spots. This will also reduce the amount of gas needed which will lower your utility bills. Cleansing the interior of the pipework will also help keep boiler repairs at bay as the water is cleaner as it goes past the boiler. This maintenance process will help lengthen the lifespan of your boiler and central heating, so will be cost effective in the longer run. If it is the right process for your central heating, a power flush has many benefits.
How Do You Know That Power Flushing Your Central Heating System Will Help?
There are certain signs that show us that a power flush is needed. If there are areas on your radiators that remain cold when the heating is on – it is likely that the water isn’t flowing freely in the central heating system. If your boiler makes a lot of noise when it runs, it could be that the build-up of rust is stopping it working properly. There could be other reasons for both of these things, so contact us to check your system over and see if power flushing is the right answer.
