This is the cleaning and treatment of your central heating system. Power flushing is the term used for cleaning this sludge out of the system with the aid of professional chemicals and a powerful flushing unit (only to be used by professionals).
Although most heating systems are designed with a life expectancy of 15 -20 years, the build up of magnetite sludge and subsequent corrosion can often shorten this and lead to lower heat transfer and poor system performance. The sediment can clog your pumps, reduce the water flow and usually leads to cold spots in individual radiators.
Power flushing is an important part of maintaining your heating system and ensuring that your home is heated effectively and efficiently. The procedure takes approximately 4 to 8 hours depending on the size of your house. (A 10 radiator system would be cleaned in 4 to 5 hours).
It is usual to power flush an old central heating system, before a replacement boiler is to be installed, this ensures system cleanliness, correct water flow and maximum heating potential in all radiators and piping systems.
