What is a powerflush?

Powerflushing is a popular solution/fix for inefficient central heating systems, but what exactly is it and what are the benefits? A powerflush helps to clear out any dirt or debris that has built up in your central heating system through years of use. This is done by sending water through your system at a powerful, high velocity to dislodge and 'flush' out the stubborn debris. 

You may need a powerflush if: 

-   Your boiler is making loud, unusual noises
-   A magnet is able to attach to your copper pipes (this indicates that there is a build up of iron sludge inside)
-   Radiators take a long time to heat up/ don’t heat up at all

What are the benefits of powerflushing? 

Will a powerflush heat my home quicker? Yes 

This is the most noticeable benefit of a powerflush. Your radiators will heat up quicker than before and may even feel slightly warmer! Why? Powerflushing will remove cold spots on the radiators, allowing the radiator and your room to heat up evenly and quickly like before. 

Will a powerflush make my central heating system last longer? Yes 

A powerflush increases the lifespan on your central heating system by returning it to a an almost perfect-like condition like it was when it was first installed! This reduces the chance of any problems or breakdowns that may be caused by excessive build up and will help you save money on expensive repairs

Will a powerflush make my central heating more efficient? Yes

After a powerflush, there is no debris or build up making your central heating system work harder than it has to, allowing it to work much more efficiently than before. 
In turn, this should allow you to turn your central heating down a few degrees, helping you save some extra money on your energy bills.

Will my powerflush last a long time? Yes

After your home has been powerflushed, it can last up to ten years before it needs another. That’s ten years free from noisy boilers, patchy radiators and unreliable central heating, surely a win-win?
