Are You Due a Powerflush? January 01, 2018 Winter is back and it’s important that your central heating system and boiler is operating to its highest standard to avoid the winter chill in your home. You can do this through a powerflush. Below, we’ve outlined some great benefits of power flushing and why we recommend one for all of our customers across Stourbridge, Birmingham, Wolverhampton and everywhere else across the West Midlands...What is a powerflush?A powerflush sends water through the central heating system at a high velocity to remove any sludge or debris that might be infiltrating the system. Signs that indicate you might be in need of a power flush:- Radiators are taking their time to heat up or aren’t heating at all- Black or brown sludgy water is in the heating system and a magnet is able to attach to the copper pipework – indication that there is iron sludge inside- Loud noises are coming from the boiler or the attic header tank is on the verge of overflowWhat are the benefits?Check out the benefits of powerflushing and why we recommend it: Warm radiators with a powerflushThis is perhaps the most obvious and most noticeable benefit. Your radiators will take significantly less time to heat up and might even feel a degree or two warmer as the faulty cold spots are completely diminished.Powerflushing improves the lifespan of the heating systemA powerflush can reset the central heating system almost back to how it was when it was first installed. This will reduce the potential significant cost of repairing or replacing a broken system in the future. Think of the long-term savings and get your home powerflushed instead.Greater efficiency and reduced energy bills with a powerflushCentral heating systems that have benefited from a powerflush are significantly more energy efficient and therefore significantly more cost efficient. For instance, rather than having to increase the temperature on the thermostat to boost the temperature in your home and squeeze out heat through the small hot spots on your radiator, you can reduce the temperature and remain confident that your home will be warm in no time. Powerflushing produces long lasting resultsOnce your central heating system has been powerflushed, it shouldn’t need another one for a while. That’s several years with a quieter boiler and healthy, fast-heating radiators.
