Clean and Lean.
Cleaning a central heating system is integral to its health and powerflushing is a popular cleaning method due to the rapid but comprehensive clean it delivers.

The benefits of a clean heating system are:

  • more even heat distribution throughout your property
  • improved overall energy savings
  • lower household bills
  • increased system reliability
  • extended system life

So how do you know if a system needs a powerflush? Here are some symptoms to look out for.

  • Are certain rooms much colder than others?
  • Does it take a long time for the property to warm up?
  • Are one or more radiators cold at the bottom?
  • Do radiators need frequent bleeding?
  • Is the boiler noisy?

Building Regulations
The Compliance Guide to Part L of the UK Building Regulations for England and Wales requires a central heating system to be cleaned and flushed before a corrosion and scale inhibitor chemical is added during commissioning. It’s also prudent to do this when an old central heating boiler is being replaced by a new boiler. Many boiler manufacturers now make the warranty dependent on flushing and cleaning in accordance with BS7593, Benchmark and Part L.
