Understanding Power Flushing

Why should I invest in a power flushing of my heating system?

A central heating system which has been treated by a power flushing engineer can save up to 15% on energy costs than a system which has not been treated. For an average heating bill of £800, you could save £120 each year.

Power flushing your central heating system will offer your home an improved circulation of heat produced, a quicker hot water warming time, improvement in efficiency and a warmer home for less energy costs.

Having a power flushing service in your home will also reduce noise from your boiler and radiators whilst reducing emissions which are harmful to the environment.

How do I know if my central heating requires power flushing?

If you notice any of the following symptoms within your heating system, you should ask a qualified plumbing engineer to investigate your system to find out if you require a power flushing service:

  • There is a reduction in the heat output produced
  • Radiators require regular bleeding
  • You find cold patches on the radiators
  • You experience sluggish circulation
  • Your pump repeatedly fails
  • Noises come from the boiler
  • You notice a gassy smell when bleeding your radiators

What causes my heating to require a power flushing?

Within your heating system, a dark sludge called magnetite can build up over time. This may be due to any of the following causes:

  • The original installation not being completed with adequate cleaning
  • A build up of oxygen and bacteria within the system
  • Bad system design
  • An inhibitor not being replenished following a system draining
  • Different metals reacting within the heating system

What happens during a power flushing?

Using a specialist equipment, a qualified heating engineer will use a low pressure, high velocity pumping machine to flush out the heating system. A heating engineer will use a combination of cleansing chemicals with magnetic filtration technology to break up the debris, scale and sludge so that it can easily be flushed away.

Once the whole system has been flushed, it is refilled with clean water and a chemical inhibitor is added to keep the problem from returning in the future.

For an average sized home with approximately ten radiators, power flushing the system should take less than a working day.
