10 Great Reasons To Have Your Heating System Cleaned!

  1. Cleanses The Central Heating System

Power flushing is a procedure which pumps cleaning chemicals and high amounts of forced water around your central heating system. This helps to remove any dust, debris or limescale that may be blocking the pipes, which will ensure that your heating system is properly cleaned and working properly again.

  1. Removes Dust And Debris

High-pressured water and cleaning solvents are fed through a pump in quick succession to remove any dust and debris covering the pipework. This will resolve any issues such as blockages, cold spots or leaks that may have been caused through a build-up of dirt.

  1. Increased Efficiency

By cleansing your central heating system, a power flush will improve the efficiency of your boiler and radiators, as it can help you increase water temperature and prevent regular breakdowns.

  1. Prevents Blockages

Maintaining your heating system and having a power flush every 5 to 6 years will help to prevent blockages. This is due to the chemicals used, as they clear away any dust and debris and stay in the system to prevent reoccurring rust.

  1. Prolongs The Lifespan Of The Heating System

Having a power flush can actually increase the lifespan of your system by 10 years, especially if you have one every 5 years or so. You should also make sure that you check and maintain your radiators and boilers regularly to avoid any issues and replacement costs.

  1. Helps Your Home Heat Up Faster

As a power flush uses a high velocity of water and strong chemicals in your heating system, this will allow blockages to be removed and heat circulation will become more efficient. This preventative method will allow the water to flow much quicker and easier throughout the system, enabling your home to heat up a lot faster than it used to.

  1. Reduced Utility Bills

Having your system power flushed allows it to become more energy-efficient, as the heat circulates better and temperature rise, therefore there is no need to use more energy. After a while, you may notice a drop in your utility bills, as you should be using your heating less and less.

  1. Quieter Radiators And Boiler

Another advantage of having your central heating system power flushed is that it will make your boiler and radiators much quieter, as the pipes will be completely clear of all blockages which are the main cause of the noises coming from your heating system.

  1. Higher Water Temperature

Blockages in your central heating system can cause water temperature levels to drop. A power flush is a great solution to this problem, as it increases water flow, and therefore increases the temperature allowing your boiler and radiators to reach high temperatures again.

  1. More Reliable

Having your system power flushed regularly will ensure your heating system is more reliable, as you will experience fewer boiler breakdowns, which means you can save money on having your boiler replaced.
