A power flush is simply a process that gives your central heating system a thorough internal clean and usually improves the central heating system's performance; which can lead to lower gas bills.
Over time some heating systems may experience poor circulation resulting in lukewarm radiators, poor hot water, increased noise and sludge build up. By 'powerflushing' your heating system, the sludge and built up residue will be removed via inline magnetic filtration, it will make your system work more efficiently.
How does Powerflushing Work?
Because the water in a central heating system is always pumped in the same direction, iron filings, sludge, oil and grease build up within each radiator in your system. This has a detrimental effect on the efficiency of both your radiators and your boiler - in fact - your whole central heating system, reducing it's life expectancy.
When a system is professionally power flushed, the system is flushed in different directions, agitating the sludge and debris, so the system can be drained of the deposits. When flushing a system, special chemicals are used to ensure the breakdown of the sludge inside the system, prior to the deposits being removed.
Powerflushing your Central Heating system can also extend the lifespan of your boiler and under Part L of the building regulations, it is recommended that your system be power flushed when an old central heating boiler is being replaced by a new boiler.
