Power flushing your central heating system

The reason a large number of boiler breakdown call outs are mainly due to dirty water and sludge within the boiler heating system. When dirt and sludge has built up within your central heating system it can have a massive effect on how well your boiler runs, lasts and how efficient it is.

What is a power flush?

A power flush requires a power flush machine in which you add a chemical solution that cleanses your central heating system and removes any elements and built up sludge inside of pipes, such as rust or debris that may be causing it not to work as well as it should. If this is left inside of your system, it can cause serious problems to your home heating system. Over a duration of time the water in your pipes, boiler and radiators produces unwanted sludge and can cause your radiators to not give out as much heat or cause your boiler to break down completely resulting in a costly repair.

A power flush will remove the sludge in your system this will prevent blockages and central heating inefficiency including breakdowns by making the heating system more reliable. This means that your radiators, heating components and your boiler can work more efficiently when heating your home, prolonging the life of your heating system and boiler.

A power flush to your central heating system is always recommended every 5-7 years to keep your boiler in top preforming condition and working as you’d expect from a high efficacy boiler.

How long does a power flush take?

It can vary depending on the house size and heating system installed as to how long a power flush will take to complete. A power flush will usually take less time to perform if you have a combination boiler or sealed system as there isn’t a need to cap off the cold feed and expansion piping by the tank.

Thank you for turning the heat back on!!

The old boiler packed up on the Wednesday and by the Saturday a new boiler had been installed and checked. It is so hard to find reliable people so we were delighted when Ableforce were recommended to us.
