Central Heating Power Flushing

What is power flushing?

Many central heating systems may be suffering from a build-up of scale, rust or sludge. Power Flushing can restore and upgrade your system to as good as new.

A build-up of scale, rust and sludge will significantly reduce the efficiency of your central heating system and you will be paying more to run a system that is not warming your home to the best of its ability.

At GAS FIX we provide power flushing methodically and thoroughly, pipe by pipe, radiator by radiator, including the boiler. Once your whole system has been power flushed thoroughly, we will refill it with clean water, and a corrosive inhibitor will be added to your central heating system. This will be clearly labelled as containing this chemical substance. Power flushing usually takes from 4 hours to a day to complete, it all depends on the size, number of radiators and the type of system you have.

The success of a power flush will depend on the level of heating system corrosion which has occurred beforehand. The process will cure most circulation problems.

At GAS FIX we use the best quality flushing machine available, we use a Kamco pump unit that can pump up to 200 litres a minute around your central heating system, we also use an Adey magnetic system filter so all iron deposits get removed with ease, so you can be confident you will get the best possible results.

You should really request power flush when:

You feel cold spots on the radiators.
Blocked radiators.
Radiators frequently needing bleeding.
Radiators slow to heat up.

Noise from the boiler.
Poor or no hot water.
Boiler failures.
Heating circulation problems.
