Q: What is Power Flushing?
A: Power flushing is a procedure which involves using specialised equipment to clear out any sludge and rust which has built up in your heating system over years of use in order to improve the heating output and efficiency.
Over time, the components of your central heating system, such as the radiators, or your boiler, will begin to rust as part of natural wear and tear. Eventually, this rust will mix with the water in the system and turn into sludge, which can build up in the piping and causes blockages, particularly in modern systems which may have narrow pipework. Blockages, or at least, partial blockages in the piping can lead to decreased functionality and efficiency in your heating system.
Q: When do I need a power flush?
A: Though you may not use your central heating system very often in the summer, you might still spot some of the following symptoms which may suggest that your system is due for a clean:
If you have noticed any of these symptoms, it’s recommended that you give your local heating engineers, such as Emergency Plumbers Southampton a call.
Even if it turns out to be nothing at all, regular servicing and maintenance is invaluable in prolonging the working life of your heating system and ensuring that it’s working at optimal levels.
