Ensure your central heating is installed right
We install central heating in the strictest conditions, ensuring that your heating flows smoothly, keeping you warm without any blips.
Power flushing removes these deposits and the problems that they cause. Power flushing, is also an excellent way to pre-commission clean new heating systems, to remove excess flux.
POWER FLUSHING, JET FLUSHING & HARD FLUSHING
These are all expressions used (in the heating trade over many years) to denote the process by which heating systems are forcibly cleansed using water at high velocity, but low pressure, so that no physical damage is caused to the system. The process can be made even more effective with the addition of powerful cleansing and mobilising agents.
The objective is to restore systems with circulation and boiler noise problems (caused by sludge and corrosion deposits) to optimum operation. Power flushing removes these deposits and the problems that they cause.
Power flushing, is also an excellent way to pre-commission clean new heating systems, to remove excess flux, swarf and other debris, and the grease and oil used to prevent rusting of components before use.
It is prudent to power flush a heating system immediately before fitting a new boiler to an existing system to prevent possible future problems. Many systems are found to contain corrosion and sludge, even if no flow problems have yet shown themselves.
Existing debris is often mobilised by alterations to the system/piping and the increased efficiency of the new boiler, and may then accumulate in the boiler heat exchanger, causing noisy operation, reduced efficiency and, in extreme circumstances, failure of the boiler.
The high efficiency and compactness of modern boilers, developed to minimise fuel costs and pollution, means that they are more susceptible to problems caused by debris in the system water.
- Does your boiler make noise?
- Does your radiators feel half cold?
- Do you hear noise in your pipes?
- Rusty radiators
- Small leaks from the radiators
- Central Heating pump failure
- Boiler keeps needing to be reset?
- It takes a long time for your heating system to heat up the house
- Dark water coming form your radiators when you bleed them.
Don’t cut corners. Ensure your central heating is serviced on a yearly basis.
We can schedule in your yearly check when we install your central heating, or you can give us a call to arrange. We only usually need a few days’ notice.
