Power flush your heating system to improve efficiency

Power flushing is a technique used to clear sludge and corrosion from central heating system pipes, radiators, coils and heat exchanger.
 the symptoms for system in need of power flushing are usually:

  • Cold spots on radiators, even after bleeding

  • System slow to warm up

  • High heating bills

  • Noisy heating system

  • Radiators need regular bleeding

  
Once a power flush is complete, you can expect the following benefits:

 

  • Pipes and radiators will warm up quicker

  • More cost efficient system

  • increased heating system life 

  • Heat will be distributed more evenly throughout the home

  • Improved hot water

  • A warmer home

Power flush process:

 

The power flushing machine is simply connected into the central heating installation, either across the circulating pump couplings or either side of one radiator. The powerful water flow, combined with a flow reversing device, will dislodge and break up deposits and corrosion which resist normal central heating system cleaning methods.

Once the sludge deposits have been loosened and mobilised, fresh clean water will be pumped at force through the heating system, pushing the contaminated water out through a full bore dump valve to the nearest drain. During the flushing process, radiators are cleaned individually without removing or disconnecting them from the heating system, by directing the water flow of the pump through each radiator separately. Chemicals can be added to the flushing process depending upon the severity of the problem.

Upon completion of the flushing process, the system contains fresh clean water and commissioning of the system to normal operation takes place. A corrosion inhibitor will then be added to the system to help prevent further problems in the future.

Power flushing of the central heating system will not remedy design or mechanical faults of the boiler, but we can do diagnosis and try to detect the problem and advise our customer what to do.
