Emergency Plumber Bath

If you're existing boiler is approaching the end of its life, chances are you have already called round for quotes to carry out a replacement. Those quotes are likely to include the cost of chemically treating or power flushing your central heating system. Power flushing is not only a requirement for all new boiler installations and boiler replacements, but is also part of building regulations. Not power flushing your system will not only mean you are contravening building regulations, but could also invalidate the manufacturers guarantee on your boiler. Over time debris in your system will build up and the heat exchange at the heart of your boiler will become clogged and restricted. This can lead to poor circulation, poor heat transference, noise and premature failure. Having your system cleansed before installing the new boiler will help to maintain its lifespan and efficiency. If you would like more information about a new boiler installation, replacing your existing boiler, or improving the efficiency of your existing boiler, do not hesitate to contact us. You can arrange a call out from one of our Gas Safe engineers by calling us on 07415375875 or dropping us an email.

Do you need a power flush? Here’s a number of symptoms to look out for

  • Boiler switching on and off frequently.
  • Boiler constantly breaking down.
  • If you have a combination boiler you may notice that the hot water keeps getting hot and then cold. A non-stable temperature may continue to get worse, until you do not get any hot water at all.
  • Boiler making banging and/or knocking noises.
  • Central heating radiators taking a long time to heat up.
  • Radiators getting cold spots.
  • Radiators not getting very hot when the pipe work is getting hot.
  • House always feels cold even when the heating’s on.
  • Boiler making “kettling" noise (resembles a kettle boiling).

What happens if I don’t power flush my central heating system?

Boilers can become so damaged that they’ll be deemed uneconomical to repair, requiring a replacement

  • The efficiency of the system will be affected, costing you lots of money in fuel and system repair bills.
  • Cause mechanical failure of pumps, motorised valves, heat exchangers and hydraulic systems in boilers.
  • Pin holes will form in radiators and heat exchangers, requiring replacement or repair. Oxide sludge is like black muddy oil, so will damage anything it comes into contact with, such as carpets, worktops and flooring if it leaks or spills.
