Power Flushing

A power flush is simply a process that gives your central heating system a thorough internal clean and usually improves the central heating system's performance; which can lead to lower gas bills.

Over time some heating systems may experience poor circulation resulting in lukewarm radiators poor hot water, increased noise and sludge build up. By ‘power flushing’ your heating system, the sludge and built up residue will be removed via inline magnetic filtration, it will make your system work more efficiently.

We are one of the few companies in York and surrounding area that specialise in powerflushing and have brought back to life many old heating systems and saved customers £100’s of £££ especially on oil & LPG boiler central heating systems.

How does Power Flushing Work?
Because the water in a central heating system is always pumped in the same direction, iron filings, sludge, oil and grease build up within each radiator in your system. This has a detrimental effect on the efficiency of both your radiators and your boiler – in fact – your whole central heating system, reducing its life expectancy.
When a system is professionally power flushed, the system is flushed in different directions, agitating the sludge and debris, so the system can be drained of the deposits. When flushing a system, special chemicals are used to ensure the breakdown of the sludge inside the system, prior to the deposits being removed.

Power flushing your Central Heating system can also extend the lifespan of your boiler and under Part L of the building regulations, your system must be power flushed when an old central heating boiler is being replaced by a new boiler.

The cost of power flushing does vary so please do call to arrange a site visit or discuss your requirements over the phone.

What is a MagnaCleanse?

Produced by the manufacturers of the award winning MagnaClean® Professional filter, the MagnaCleanse RapidFlush Filter has five times the capacity of a normal power flush and is designed to remove all oxide particles and debris in one pass. What enters the filter is retained and prevented from recirculating.

The robust filter consists of a unique swirl chamber, in the centre of which sits a powerful magnetic core. The contaminated water returning from the system during a flush is forced around and along the length of the magnet where any oxide particles are exposed to the powerful magnetic field.

Particles are drawn towards the core and prevented from circulating back into the system. This continues until a saturation level is reached at which point no more build-up is possible. Surprisingly we still come across new boilers that have been installed by other companies and the central heating system has not been correctly flushed, customers are often surprised to hear their new boiler now needs an expensive repair all because the installer never power flushed the central heating system correctly.

For a free estimate please let us know the type of system you own, the age (estimate), the number of radiators and please call 01904 891572 or contact us.

We appreciate, that no matter how small a job is, it’s important to do it right. To prove this, and to give you peace of mind, all our work carries a 30 day labour and 1 year parts guarantee.
