Power Flushing

Power flushing helps to keep your central heating system working efficiently and effectively year round.

Power flushing is an in-depth cleaning process that removes sludge and corrosion from radiators and central heating systems. Over time, deposits of dirt and rust build up which can stop radiators from working properly and put unnecessary strain on your boiler or heating pump.

Does my heating need power flushing?

If you’ve noticed your heating system’s performance deteriorate over time then this may be a signal that a power flush is needed. There are some key indicators that your system isn’t working correctly and power flushing may be the solution:

  • Radiators are cold at the bottom and hot at the top
  • Radiators take a long time to heat up
  • Some radiators heat up and others don’t
  • Dirty water when you bleed the radiators
  • Excessively noisy boiler or heating pump
  • Unreliable hot water

We also strongly recommend power flushing is carried out with any new boiler installation to ensure the system is working efficiently.

What we do

Power flushing involves attaching a specialist cleansing machine to the heating system and running a chemical solution through the entire system to remove sludge and debris. The process can take several hours and the costs will depend on the size of the heating system.

If you think you require power flushing please get in touch. We will arrange to visit your property , assess your heating system to see if power flushing is the appropriate solution, and provide a no-obligation quote.

…I now have heat in a radiator which was stone cold before which with the winter months approaching and twin toddlers I was not looking forward to. Will be booking [Peter] again for a boiler service asap.
