The importance of Power Flushing

It is critical for central heating systems to be given a power flush to clear any debris from the system to maximise operating efficiency and reliability.

What is Power Flushing?

Power flushing is a cleaning process carried out by experienced and trained professionals. Essentially it helps to remove debris such as dirt, rust and lime scale to ensure that the central heating water, which circulates through the pipes, pump, radiators and air-to-water heat pump system, is as clean as possible.

How Power Flushing is done?

Power Flushing is carried out by connecting a power flush machine to the system’s circulating pump or a radiator and circulating the central heating water at a high flow rate for several hours. This process picks up and filters out any contamination which could impair the efficiency of the system.

Benefits of Power Flushing?

  •  Increases efficiency
  •   Cost savings
  •  Enhances reliability
  •  Increases system life span
  •  Reduces leaks and damage
  •  Reduces breakdowns
