When to Power Flush?

When to Power Flush a central heating system is a question we are frequently asked by homeowners across London. Unfortunately, there is no 'right time' to power flush but it is better done late rather than never as the cost of not doing so could be considerable.

There are many different types of central heating systems as well as numerous makes of boiler. Every one of them is susceptible to the build up of 'sludge' within the system over time and we often get asked to power flush recently installed central heating systems as well as ones that have been in place for years. However, to ensure your central heating system works as best it can, there are certain signs you should be looking out for. We have detailed a few of these below:

  • Cold patches at base of radiators caused by sludge accumulation
  • Muddy looking brown water released while bleeding the system means internal corrosion
  • Cold or lukewarm radiators caused by blocked valves and pipes
  • 'Banging' or 'loud' boiler due to accumulation of sludge or limescale
  • Lack of hot water when system apears to be on due to blocked pipes
  • Poor circulation of water due to blocked boiler pump
  • Cold areas at top of radiators caused by rusting and consequent release of gas 

It is well worth power flushing a new central heating system before any new boiler is fitted. Many newly installed systems may have areas of corrosion and a build up of sludge, even if no problems with water flow within the system have started.

It is pretty certain that a power flush can make a considerable difference to the efficiency of a central heating if there has been a large build up of sludge and other corrosive deposits in the system over time. What is very satisfying to us, is hearing from our customers, who see much lower heating costs once there central heating system has been power flushed.
