What is Power Flushing & Why Do I Need It?
Power flushing is a fast and effective way to clean the various types of central heating systems.
During a power flush, the heating engineer will use cleaning products and an external pump and filter to remove sludge and debris from your system.
Debris builds up in your system as water oxidises the metal parts that are present. As this debris accumulates it can cause blockages that will reduce how your heating system performs.

Save Money on Your Bills
As mentioned above, the debris and sludge that builds up in your heating system as a result of corrosion can affect how well the unit works.

In cold seasons, you’ll probably keep your heating system running for longer periods of time.
All of this is a recipe for more expensive monthly heating bills.
If you include power flushing in the regular maintenance of your heating system, you’ll save money each month as your system will work better.

A furnace or boiler repair costs an average of £250-300 per repair.

With piping and components that are free of sludge, your system will have less strain over time.
