Power Flushing

Here at Brazendale Heating & Maintenance we offer power flushing services to our
customer base across Cheshire.

What is a power flush?

A Power flush is the process by which the central heating system of a house is flushed clean of rust, sludge and any other debris that may have accumulated. A high flow/low pressure pumping unit is attached to the heating system circulation pump and a series of strong cleansing chemicals are flushed through the entire system.

The signs that you may need a power flush
There are a few common signs that indicate power flushing is needed and these include:

  • Cold spots on the radiators or radiators that don’t heat up at all
  • Discoloured water when you bleed the radiators or in severe cases when you run the tap
  • Excessive noise from the boiler unit or the circulation pump
  • Poor or non-existent hot water even when the system has been running for a while

These problems on their own may be able to be rectified without power flushing, however,
if you notice more than one sign then it is probably worth considering a power flush.

The benefits of power flushing to your heating system
The result of power flushing is that the boiler and the rest of the central heating system become more efficient. This occurs because there is better circulation through the pipe work and the radiators and in turn the boiler doesn’t have to work as hard to warm the house and water. Therefore the overall result is that you save money on your gas bills.
