Benefits of Powerflushing

Getting a powerflush is a quick and easy way to keep your central heating system working like brand new, and the results last for years to come. Keep reading to find out the benefits of getting a powerflush by our team of gas engineers in Harwich & Dovercourt.

Signs you need a powerflush

When teamed with annual boiler servicing, you should only require a powerflush roughly every 5-10 years or so. However, if you have noticed any of the following signs, it could be time to book a powerflush...

Inefficient Boiler

Over time, sludge, rust and build-up can occur in your system. This can block the pipes and components, making your system work harder than it needs to. So, if you have noticed a rise in the cost of your energy bills, you could be due a powerflush...

Little/no hot water

Similar to the point above, build up can stop water circulating properly and can cause you to have little to not hot water. 

Cold spots on radiators

If you have recently bled your radiators and still have cold spots, there is likely to be sludge inside stopping hot water travelling all the way to the top of the radiator. 

Dirty water in your system

If you bleed your radiators and dirty water escapes, this shows there is dirty build-up occurring inside, that needs to be removed.

Benefits of a powerflush

As well as fixing all of the problems listed above, there are a few other benefits that come with getting your system powerflushed:

Longer system lifespan

Cleaning out your system and returning it to its original condition will make it last a lot longer than the systems that do not get power flushed. It reduces the risk of further build up and eliminates any corrosion in the pipes and components. 

More efficient

Your system will not have to work so hard to do the same job of heating your home, so less energy will be wasted. It will heat your home even more effectively than before while being even more efficient. 

Lower energy bills

Linking to your system being more efficient, as less energy is wasted, less money will be wasted as a result. This means you will begin to see big changes in how much you are spending on your bills, leaving you with more cash to spend on more exciting things!
