For most people the central heating only goes on when it’s absolutely necessary and we often take it for granted that it’ll work its magic and spread warmth throughout the house. But did you know that your central heating system works (like most other appliances) in that it needs regular tender loving care in order to perform at its optimum?
Warning signs that your system may need a power flush are:
• your boiler is noisy
• your radiators bang
• your heating is slow to heat up or
• you have cold spots in your radiators
Power flushing aids the productivity of your central heating system and can remove the sediment inside your boiler and heating system. This build up consists of lime scale, metal sludge and debris which coats the pipes and decreases circulating productivity.
Any central heating system can build up this sludge trouble over a period of time, although there will be much more in an older system. If you are in the process of buying a new radiator or boiler make sure you discuss, with your plumber, the benefits of giving your central heating system a power flush. Installing brand new parts without power flushing will disarrange the sludge build-up making it spread throughout the system once again.
The process of power flushing involves flushing out the pipes, radiators and the boiler in a heating system at a high pressure. Chemicals are used to breakdown the debris and rust, returning the water to a neutral PH balance. The plumbing team at Arco can power flush your heating system and flush through a chemical prohibitor at the end of the process preventing further corrosion.
Because power flushing improves the efficiency and quality of your central heating system, it can also cut down on your bills saving you money and essentially paying back for the cost of the service. You would be surprised at how much dirt and sludge comes out when a power flush is applied.
Also new to the market is a magnetic filter. This is a filter which can be attached to a boiler. This filter attracts all of the metal corroded debris and stores it in a compartment which can be taken out and cleaned regularly.
This is becoming increasingly popular because it protects your flushing investment and can prevent you from needing another power flush in the near future. Is your central heating system ready to benefit from a power flush? Get ready for winter and book us in for your power flush today.
