Radiator Thermal ImageNo, not your toilet, but your central heating system!

Flushing your central heating system is a deep clean for your system that helps to remove sludge, rust and other debris that has built up over time in your system, which if left unattended can result in your system not working as efficiently as possible thus costing you more money in energy to heat your home, and can save you call out and repair costs as it helps keep your system in good working order.

Think about your home appliances that use water, your kettle, dishwasher or washing machine for example … do you descale these and deep clean these appliances to make sure they’re working to the best of their ability?  Of course you do, because you know that over time appliances that use water have a build up to debris and grime and the same applies to your heating system!  Over time your pipes and radiators can rust internally and this build up along with lime scale and other grime can slow down the circulation of water through your system which makes your system work much harder to heat up and thus uses more energy driving your bills up.

Flushing can be carried out with very little disruption to your home and can take between 3 – 7 hours to complete depending on the size of your property.  Additives are firstly used to dislodge and remove all of the sludge and grime and at the end of the process inhibitors are used to help protect further rusting and lime scale build up.

It’s recommended that you flush your system annually to keep it in the best working condition and it’s a must if your installing a new boiler as historic build up can prevent your new boiler working to the best of its ability.
