Power flushing the central heating system in your home is recommended approximately every 5 years. It is also essential when you have a replacement boiler fitted to an existing heating system.

What is Power Flushing?

A power flush involves cleaning the internal parts of a central heating system. This includes the insides of the pipes and radiators. In gas central heating, water is heated by the boiler and then pumped in a circuit around the home warming the radiators as it flows.

Cleaning the inside helps keep the water flowing evenly and effectively.

What to Expect

Power flushing takes around half a day to complete. The exact length of time will depend on the size of your home and the number of radiators you have installed.

Chemicals are pumped inside the radiators. These have been specially formulated to loosen debris, rust, and sludge that has accumulated over the years inside the central heating. A flush then removes the loosened dirt replacing it with clean water.

We complete power flushes in the Merthyr Tydfil area of South Wales. Our experienced team works to a high standard without making any mess.

How to Tell That You Need a Power Flush

There are signs that your central heating could benefit from a power flush. If you are experiencing any of these, call us to discuss having a power cleanse arranged.

  • Cold areas on the bottom and middle of your radiators
  • Noise and banging from the central heating
  • The boiler is taking longer to heat the radiators
  • The rooms aren’t warming as effectively as before

The Benefits of Power Flushing

Why book us for a power flush? When a system is newly cleaned, the stress on the boiler is greatly reduced. The rooms should also warm up quicker when the whole radiator gets hot. With the boiler working more efficiently, you should see your gas bill reduce somewhat. A power flush can also prolong the life of your boiler as it doesn’t have to work so hard.

When you have a new boiler fitted, it is usual to power flush the pipes and radiators first. This is so that old rust and sludge don’t pass through the new boiler as soon as it is connected to the existing central heating system.
