What is a powerflush?

Is your central heating system in need of a powerflush? Powerflushes are the best way to get your central heating system running as they should be, so you could be missing out on a higher efficiency for your boiler! If you are unsure of what a powerflush is, keep reading this blog post.

So, what actually is a powerflush?

A powerflush is the process of removing any dirt, debris or sludge that builds up inside your central heating system over time. It aims to make your system as efficient as possible and helps it to last much longer too.

Does your system need a powerflush?

We have listed the most common indicators that your home will benefit from  powerflush:

  • Cold spots on your radiator, even after bleeding them
  • Your system seems less efficient overall
  • Your boiler is making unusual sounds
  • Sludgy, dirty water is inside your system
  • Your radiators or water takes a long time to heat up

As well as all of these signs, it is also recommended that you get a powerflush before you install a new boiler. This leaves the rest of your system working like new again, so you can get the most from your new boiler.

Our powerflush process, based in Heckmondwike

As the name suggests, your central heating system gets completely flushed out, to remove any build up that has occurred internally. This build-up is natural and can't be avoided, although a powerflush is a quick and easy way to remove it.

Chemicals are pumped through your system at a very high velocity, giving it a lot of power to dislodge anything that shouldn't be there. All of your pipes and components receive a thorough cleaning, leaving no debris behind. This leaves your system working like brand new again while causing minimal disruption to your home. It also increases the lifespan of your system, as there is no dirt or rust to cause damage over time.
