It’s a good idea to have your central heating system power flushed every now and then, to improve efficiency and extend the life of your boiler.
Without a power flush, you may find yourself paying out for a new boiler installation earlier than you expected.
When the copper piping in radiators and boilers is exposed to the hot water, the chemical reaction produces magnetite. This is a thick black sludge that circulates in the system and will settle in radiators.
The will lead to a decreased level of efficiency and an expensive repair bill.
However, with power flushes you can save up to 25% on heating bills and remove the magnetite before it becomes a serious problem in your boiler.
As well as the above, power flushing will also:
- Cure circulation problems
- Remove aggressive water (drinking water that can cause corrosion)
- Prevent pump failure
- Lower the heating and boiler noise
- Reduce gas bills
- Speed up how quickly your home is heated.
