The objective is to restore your system back to optimum performance. A typical heating system over 10 years old may have a circulation problem or even boiler noises. It may also be affected by sludge build up and corrosion deposits in the radiators.
Power flushing removes the deposits and gives you and your system many benefits; reduced fuel bills, more efficient system, longer life, quieter, the next best thing to a new system. Power flushing prices start at £352.50.
There are thousands of ageing central heating systems with circulation and boiler noise problems caused by the accumulation of sludge, corrosion deposits and scale, but traditional methods of flushing just don’t get rid of all the debris, and problem re-occur very quickly.
Power flushing is an expression used to denote the process by which heating systems are forcibly cleansed using water at very high velocity, but at low pressure so that no physical damage is caused to the system. The process can be made more effective with the addition of powerful cleansing agents.
Power flushing is also an excellent way to pre-commission clean new heating systems to remove excess flux, swarf and other debris and grease to prevent rusting of interior components before use.
It is good economic value and practical to power flush a heating system immediately before fitting a new boiler to an existing system to deter possible future problems. Many systems are found to contain corrosion and sludge even when no problems have been obvious.
