What is power flushing?
So, first of all, what is power flushing? Well, this involves pumping non harmful chemicals around your heating system, to dislodge any sludge or mineral build ups that could be adversely effecting the efficiency and performance of your boiler or central heating.
Signs your heating system needs power flushing
So, how can you tell that heating system could benefit from power flushing? Well, there are a number of signs, including:
- Clanging and whistling noises coming from your boiler- this occurs when particles of lime scale have built up on the heating element, and in pipes. It will be continually noisy, not just when you first switch on the heating.
- Cold radiator patches- patches of cold in your radiators, or radiators that simply aren’t getting hot is a good indication that your central heating system could benefit from a power flush. This occurs when the hot water cannot travel through the pipes effectively, because of mineral blockages. And this makes it much harder for your boiler to heat your home, so you will notice an increase in your energy bill.
