What is Power Flushing a Boiler?
As the name suggests, Power Flush boiler is a ‘powerful’ cleaning procedure that removes all deposits of sludge, rust, and any other debris from your central heating system. If not cleaned thoroughly, these harmful contaminants can lower the efficiency of the system or even fully damage the boilers.
Usually, these contaminants such as rust are produced as a by-product of deposits by the water in pipes, boilers, and radiators. These deposits like dirt and debris can eventually take the form of an unpleasant mud-like substance called sludge. This sludge blocks your heating system and causes many problems such as corrosion, inefficiency, or even breakdown of the system. In extreme cases, it might need a boiler replacement.
A Flushing radiator system acts as the effective solution against this problem and thoroughly cleanses your system to restore its efficiency and make your home warmer like before
During this procedure, engineers connect a pump to your central heating system and push special chemicals through the pipes, boiler, and radiators. The special chemical removes all the sludge, rust, limescale, and corrosion from the system and prevents the formation of future rust.
Lastly, the engineers collect and dispose of all the contaminated water and debris collected from the system. As a result, your system gets restored to its original efficiency status, and you notice an instant rise of the temperature and more effective operation of the system.
When Do You Need a Power Flush?
Your power flushing requirements may depend on a number of factors. For example, if you carry out timely servicing and maintenance of your heating system, then you might need power flushing every 5 to 6 years.
However, it also depends upon your boiler system. For instance, if you have a boiler with copper heat exchangers, it will corrode faster than a stainless steel one, and you might need quicker power flushing.
Also, if you are installing a new boiler, it is always required that you conduct a power flushing before the installation. Otherwise, the already present debris and sludge in the old pipework can contaminate your system.
Signs for a power flush requirements
The best way to decide if your system needs a thorough power flushing is by checking these signs in your central heating system.
- Cold areas on radiators e.g., at the bottom
- Excessive noise from the boiler or the heating system pump
- Discoloured water when you bleed the radiators
- Slow heating
- Radiators unable or struggling to heat up
- Radiators are cold, but pipes are hot
- Boiler regularly shuts down and needs restarting
- No water escapes when you bleed a radiator
- Noisy radiators or boilers
- Small leaks in radiators.
If you find any of these problems familiar, it is time to contact a reliable, professional power flushing engineer.
