What is the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive
The UK government introduced the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) as an incentive to encourage homeowners to switch to installing renewable heating systems. The scheme is designed to promote the use of naturally replenishable energy and reduce the total carbon emissions produced by UK households.

How can power flushing improve my central heating system performance?
Power flushing offers a solution to clearing out radiators, boilers and heating systems which are not performing well due to a silt or debris build up.
Power flushing forcibly clears the system using high velocity water at a low pressure. This allows for effective cleaning without causing damage to the system. Additional cleaning agents or chemicals can be added to improve the results.
What are the signs that my central heating requires a power flushing?
Your heating system probably requires a power flushing by a qualified plumbing engineer if you experience cold spots on your radiators, noise in your boiler or your heating is slow to heat up.
