Have you got cold spots on your radiators? Are some of them not getting as hot as others?
You may be inclined to blame your boiler for this but could there be a more simple and cost effective answer
Over time some heating systems may experience poor circulation resulting in lukewarm radiators, poor hot water, increased noise and sludge build up. By powerflushing your heating system, the sludge and built up residue will be removed via inline magnetic filtration, it will make your system work more efficiently.
A powerflush can be carried out by one our fully trained and CHAS (Health and and safety accredited) engineers utilising a specialist powerflush machine.
Not only that but our engineers can also utilise our thermal imaging machine, the newest and most cutting edge technology to determine whether your central heating system would benefit from a powerflush and to establish any problematic areas that need particular attention.
- The first step is to drain down the system and identify and ideal location to connect the powerflush. This would generally be from the boiler or the pump on the cylinder.
- For open vented systems all vents and feeds will need to be capped off to ensure the system is sealed.
- The pump will be filled with water. This water will in turn be heated by the boiler and circulated round the system. We carry out this step to ensure that there are no leaks.
- Once the engineer is satisfied that the system is fully sealed the specialist cleaning agent can be added. The cleaning agent used is specifically formulated to break down sludge within the pipework of the system and must only be administered by a trained engineer.
How does Powerflushing Work?
Because the water in a central heating system is always pumped in the same direction, iron filings, sludge, oil and grease build up within each radiator in your system. This has a detrimental effect on the efficiency of both your radiators and your boiler – in fact – your whole central heating system, reducing it’s life expectancy.
When a system is professionally power flushed, the system is flushed in different directions, agitating the sludge and debris, so the system can be drained of the deposits. When flushing a system, special chemicals are used to ensure the breakdown of the sludge inside the system, prior to the deposits being removed.
Powerflushing your Central Heating system can also extend the lifespan of your boiler. We will assess your system and recommend the right treatment.
Our engineers are equipped with thermal imaging cameras to show you the before and after effects of the powerflush.
