Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How does a power flush work?

This all depends on the type of boiler you have installed, but every power flush will involve a powerful pump being connected to your heating system. Once the pump has been connected, a special formula will be flushed through your heating system at high volume. Any accumulated sludge, particles and rust will be removed from the inside of the system. It will prevent similar build-ups from happening in the future. Once this is done, clean water will be flushed through your system to ensure no corrosive chemicals remain. Once your heating system is completely clean a central heating inhibitor is added to protect your heating system for several years.

Q: How often is a power flush needed?

A well-maintained heating system should only require a power flush once every 10 years. However, it’s a good idea to invest in a power flush more regularly. If you’re keen to avoid sludge from accumulating, it’s worth flushing your system once every 5 or 6 years. This way, you can be confident that your boiler and heating system aren’t working any harder than they need to be.

Q: Will a power flush remove all the sludge from my heating system?

Even the most powerful pumps can’t remove every last bit of sludge from your heating system and its pipework. However, a power flush will remove the vast majority of it. The heat exchangers of combi boilers tend to become contaminated with additional sludge. Therefore, if you have a combi boiler, it’s worth asking to have your heat exchange flushed separately to remove as much sludge as possible.

Q: Is a power flush more effective than adding a cleaning chemical?

In short, yes. A cleaning chemical is a good way of keeping a well-maintained and clean system in tip-top condition, but it won’t get rid of any major blockages. If your radiators have cold spots and your system hasn’t been flushed in many years, a power flush is the only way to go. If you’re unsure of whether your radiators need a chemical or power flush, it’s best to consult the professionals.

Q: Do your radiators really need a power flush?

Even the best radiators will need a power flush at some point. However, your heating system is more likely to require regular flushing if you have older radiators installed. If your radiators are taking ages to heat up or the base of the radiator is cold, take this as a sign they need flushing ASAP. If you’re struggling to diagnose the cause behind your radiator problems, an expert will identify the issue and suggest whether it’s time for a power flush.

Q: How long does a power flush take?

This all depends on the size of your home and how many radiators you have. For an average-sized family house with three bedrooms, a full power flush should be around 6-8 hours. For commercial premises with complex systems, a power flush will take far longer. To get a clear idea of how long a power flush will take, speak to an expert who will scope out your system and provide you with a reliable time estimate.
