Powerflushing based in Letchworth Garden City Powerflushing is one of the best ways to help your central heating system work better and stay healthy, but despite this, many people have no idea what it is! In brief, powerflushing is when a Gas Safe registered engineer cleans your entire central heating system, removing the sludge and debris that builds up over time and prevents it from performing effectively. What happens during a powerflush? All central heating systems collect dust, debris and sludge over the years. If this isn’t cleared, it can prevent your system from working properly and even cause it to eventually break down. During a powerflush, an engineer injects water at high velocity through all of the pipes in your central heating system, removing the debris - even the really stubborn stuff! Because a powerflush is so effective, you’ll likely see the results and feel the benefits from it immediately, with warmer radiators and a more efficiently run central heating system. You only need to arrange a powerflush every five to six years, too, making it an extremely cost effective investment. How to tell if your system needs powerflushing Many people are guilty of ignoring problems with their central heating system, but doing this can result in bigger problems that are more costly and difficult to fix. If you notice any of the following it may mean your system needs powerflushing, and by doing so you could save yourself a lot of hassle in the longer-term: Radiators being slow to heat up or with cold spots Dark, sludge-type water coming from your heating system A noisy boiler If a magnet is pressed to the copper pipework from the boiler, it sticks Powerflushing in Hertfordshire & the surrounding area The team at S Banks Plumbing, Heating & Eco Energies Ltd are knowledgeable and experienced in all central heating work.
