Central heating plays an integral part in our every-day lives. Not only does central heating ensure that our homes stay warm but also ensures that we have high pressured warm water. Power flushing is a great way to remove any substances, sludge or other material that may have built up over time. The results can be extremely astounding resulting in an increase in efficiency and in some case a reduction in the cost of the central heating. If you are noticing a drop in the efficiency and also the effectiveness of your central heating then it may be time to spring some life back into the system through a power flush.

What is central heating power flushing?

The way a power flush works is by using a machine and also chemicals to clean the inside pipes of radiators. Over time sludge will build up in radiators and cause what is referred to as cold spots. These colds spot mean that water cannot flow around properly and thus results in a lack of efficiency. The process of a power wash has the main aim of removing this sludge and replacing it with the clean water so that the cold spots are removed. Upon the completion of a power flush, not only will you notice an improvement in your heating system and a lack of cold spots but you will also likely see a reduction in your bills.
