Heating System Flush

Over time & with normal usage, all heating systems build up a degree of “sludge” (iron oxide & dirt from water), which can restrict water circulation and cause your system to become more inefficient over time. Symptoms of a sludged system can include being slow to heat up, uneven heating of radiators, black or very dirty water when bleeding radiators along with many more issues. It can also accelerate failure of key system components such as pumps; simply because they have to work harder than they should to move the water around the system’s pipework.

A power flush is the process of cleaning out a central heating system by circulating high volumes of (forced) water and cleaning agents around a heating system to remove debris, rust etc. You may need a power flush if you have cold spots in your radiators, or your radiators are cold at the bottom and warm at the top.

A thorough powerflush will improve heat distribution throughout the property, subsequently lowering household energy bills and increasing system reliability.


A lot less than you would think given how much it can potentially save you if your boiler decided to go wrong! For further information or if you need an estimate please contact us.
