Boiler Flush Services

We offer a wide range of services to ensure your system is running at its optimal level. For example, our power flush service includes draining and cleaning your primary circuit while making sure there is no sediment build-up in the water tank. This not only helps eliminate any potential problems with safety valves, but it also makes for more energy-efficient operation!

What is a boiler power flush?

A boiler power flush is a service that will help remove any impurities in the boiler, making your heating bills cheaper and more efficient.

A power flush is a deep clean of the heating system that removes blockages and debris from radiators, pipes, pipework, valves and other components. It also involves eliminating dirt build-up and algae in the boiler itself. Cleaning out these items means heat can be distributed more evenly around your home, so you feel warmer quicker after using it.

The service will also clear out any residue built up and help prevent new debris from entering the system. This way, you can be sure your boiler is running as efficiently as possible for a more extended period before needing another power flush done.

Is a power flush worth it?

The answer depends on a few factors, including how old the boiler is and its type. For example, if your boiler is over ten years old or an oil-fired system, then a power flush might be necessary for safety reasons.

Other than this, there are two other primary considerations: whether you feel warmer quicker when using it and whether you’re saving money on your heating bills. If the answer to both of these is yes, then a power flush will be worth it.

How often should I flush my boiler?

In the perfect world, you should have a boiler power flush every 5 or 6 years, which ensures the quality of heating systems water remains a high standard and helps prevent the development of blockages in the system and damage to internal components. 

How do you know if your central heating system needs flushing?

A few signs indicate it may be time for your boiler to have a power flush. These include:

– A decrease in heating efficiency, meaning you need to set the thermostat higher or wait longer before feeling warm.

– A noisy boiler or radiators and leaking radiators.

– A boiler that has been in operation for over ten years.

– A boiler that needs to be restarted regularly.

– Cold radiators yet the pipes are hot.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and your central heating system is more than five or six years old, it’s time to schedule a flush!
