As the week pulls to a close we have had the busiest in the month of May and it doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon with a one powerflush complete and another powerflush to be booked in. We have been out and unblocked a system in Tunbridge Wells yesterday and we have another powerflush to do. An example below of why your system requires flushing is demonstrated in a photo. We come across this all to often. https://www.ability.uk.com/power-flush/
If sludge and debris is not removed from heating systems, it can accumulate in radiators, pipework and heat exchangers, causing severe blockages. This diminishes the transfer of heat and can result in pipe, radiator valve and heating control servo valve damage. In some cases this will eventually lead to the premature failure of the boiler. https://www.ability.uk.com/our-services/
Powerflushing is a popular method of cleaning and maintaining a central heating system. A powerflushing unit sends water at high velocity through the system to dislodge and remove debris, limescale, and sludge build-up. A thorough powerflush will improve heat distribution throughout the property, subsequently lowering household energy bills and increasing system reliability.
An initial check of the house should be completed, in addition to consulting with the homeowner. Potential highly sludged areas should be identified, i.e. cold radiators, as well as areas which are highly corroded. When highly corroded components are observed, the homeowner should be made aware that cleaning may expose leaks in the most corroded areas.
