If your central heating system is dirty it can affect the efficiency, cost more money to run and lead to breakdown caused by blockages of sludge and debris.
Powerflushing the whole system is by far the best method to remove deposits of sludge and other contaminants, leaving you with a clean, efficient central heating system that feels hotter and costs less money in gas.
Northwest Plumbing Solutions always Powerflush before installing a new boiler as recommended by all of the boiler manufacturers. Beware of companies who “power cleanse” or “chemical flush” this is not the same and relies on the system’s own old pump to circulate the water around the system at normal speed. A Powerflush machine has an integral pump that circulates at a much higher velocity and also reversed the flow to remove even the most stubborn sludge and debris build up. If your radiators are cold at the bottom, but hot at the top or your boiler is overheat heating and/or making loud noises, then a Powerflush is probably what your system needs.
As well as routine maintenance there are further ways to improve your system’s efficiency and reduce your gas bills such as installing / upgrading:
• Radiators and heated towel rails
• Thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs)
• Magnetic particle filter such as Worcester Bosch System Filter or Magnaclean
• Underfloor heating
• Timers and timeclocks
• Room thermostats and programmable room stats
• Zone valves and motorised valves
• Chemical additives such as Inhibitor to help prevent corrosion
• Automatic by-pass valves
