Is your central heating system due a Powerflush?

As the colder winter months approach 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. In this blog post, Bog Standard Plumbing and Heating outlined some great benefits of powerflushing and why we recommend one for all of our customers across Stourbridge, Harborne, Dudley, Wolverhampton and everywhere else across the Birmingham area.

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. To visit our poweflushing service page to learn more about the service that we offer, click here

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, which indicates that there is iron sludge inside
  • Loud noises are coming from the boiler or the attic header tank is on the verge of overflow

What are the benefits of a powerflush?

Warm radiators with a powerflush

This 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 system

A 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 powerflush

Central 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 results

Once 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.
