Powerflushing radiators in Surrey

Powerflushing: Improve the efficiency of your boiler!

Noisy boiler keeping you awake at night? Cold spots on your radiators? Cloudy tap water? All these are signs that you need a powerflush!

What is a powerflush?

This is a cleansing process designed to remove deposits of rust, sludge and other debris from your central heating system. It is an effective method of cleaning out pipework, radiators, cylinder and boiler, resulting in a more efficient and quieter operation. It involves circulating high-strength cleansing chemicals, including descaler, corrosion inhibitor and sludge breaker through the system. Our engineers may also use special tools to dislodge stubborn blockages.

What causes the build-up of debris and sludge?

Central heating sludge is a mixture of dirt from water and iron oxide (rust) from pipework. Various chemical reactions take place and some have by-products, resulting in a ‘treacle-like’ sludge. This results cold spots on radiators and inefficient heating, due to restricted water flow, so you are spending more money keeping your house warm than you should. It also could damage the boiler, heat pump and valves, which could be costly to repair or replace.

What can we do to stop this?

By installing a magnetic filter, this innovative design will remove metallic debris that is present and maximise protection. During any service this magnetic filter will be cleaned.

When do you need a powerflush?

A Powerflush should only be needed before you have a new boiler installed. However, some systems may need doing if installed incorrectly or have not had corrosion inhibitors added. Signs that you need a powerflush include:

  • Cold spots on radiators particularly at the bottom
  • Discoloured water when the radiator is bled
  • Radiators slow to heat up
  • Cold radiators and hot pipes
  • Boiler shuts down regularly and needs restarting
  • Noisy radiators or boiler makes a kettle sound
