Powerflush is a cleaning process that aims to remove deposits of sludge, rust and any other debris from within your central heating system. This is a natural build up of contaminants that can seriously affect the efficiency of domestic and commercial heating systems and in extreme cases breakdown and complete boiler replacements.
There are signs to look out for that suggest that all is not well in your central heating system:
Cold areas on radiators e.g. at the bottom
Excessive noise from the boiler or the heating system pump
Discoloured water when you bleed the radiators
Heating is slow to warm up
Cloudy tap water (limescale in system)
Some radiators struggle to heat up as well as others
Radiators cold but pipes are hot
Boiler regularly shuts down and needs restarting
No water escapes when you bleed a radiator
Noisy radiators and/or boiler
Small leaks in radiators.
Powerflush is predominantly used before fitting a new boiler to an existing system preventing possible future problems. However powerflushing can clean your system at any time, eliminating clogged pipes, maximising heat output and minimising your energy costs.
