What is Powerflushing?
Over time your central heating system degrades due to the constant flow of water, creating deposits of sludge and rust which build up in your central heating system and can cause problems with your boiler, radiators and pipework.
Powerflushing removes these deposits through the use of a purpose-built flushing machine and magnetic filtration system alongside specialised cleansing solutions.
The process takes place inside your system so there is no mess to worry about and it can usually be completed in just one day.
It is advisable to have your central heating system power flushed every 5-10 years, depending on the age and type of system.
Why does it matter if my system is dirty?
The debris that builds up inside a central heating system can cause cold radiators, pipework to become blocked and can even damage the internal parts of your boiler.
By removing this debris you can prevent unnecessary damage, extend the life of your boiler and save you from having to spend money on repairs.
Also a clean system has free flowing hot water, which means your boiler will work more efficiently, your house will be warmer and it can even reduce your energy bills.
What are the signs of needing a powerflush?
The easiest way to check if you need a powerflush is to bleed a radiator. If you find dirty/smelly water comes out then this can indicate the build up of debris in your system, so power flushing may be recommended.

Energy efficiency = Saving Money
Powerflushing a central heating system can help to save money on your energy bills as your boiler will run far more efficiently with clean water running through it.
This is because the boiler components are under less pressure with the debris removed. Also clean water can reach a much higher temperature and heats up faster than dirty water, so after a power flush you should find that your house is warmer than before. The more efficient running of your central heating reduces the amount of energy being used, which can lower your energy bills and save you money.
