A deep clean that works to remove any debris, rust and sludge that has accumulated within your central heating system, a powerflush will restore the full circulation of water, improving the output of your boiler and radiators.
If left to build, contaminants will slowly reduce the efficiency of your central heating system, eventually leading to breakdown.
What does a powerflush involve?
A qualified heating engineer will cleanse your central heating system with a powerflush machine that uses high flow and low pressure to circulate high strength cleansing chemicals including a descaler, a corrosion inhibitor and a sludge crust breaker.
Targeting rust, sludge, limescale and debris such as sand, when the treatment is completed water will be able to circulate freely throughout your central heating system.
What are the benefits of a powerflush?
- Increased lifespan of central heating system
- Increased efficiency
- Reduced risk of breakdown
- Elimination of kettling (banging noises)
- Peace of mind
How will I know when I need a powerflush?
While a powerflush isn’t a solution for every central heating fault, if you notice any of the signs below, talk to your local engineer:
- Cold patches on radiators
- Noisy boiler or heating system
- Discoloured water when you bleed the radiators
- Radiators are slow to heat up
- Cloudy tap water
A central heating powerflush is recommended if you’re installing a new energy efficient condensing boiler without upgrading your whole system. A powerflush will prevent any old contaminants from damaging the pipework of your new boiler.
