Power flushing in Bridgend is the procedure by which the central heating system of a house is flushed clean of rust, sludge as well as any other debris that could have collected.A high flow/low pressure pumping unit is linked to the heating system circulation pump and a series of formidable cleaning chemicals are flushed through the entire system

Regretably power flushing in Bridgend is a fairly expensive procedure and you should only have one if you actually need it. So how will you know when your heating system should be flushed?

The signs to look for when considering a power flush

There are some prevalent signals which signify power flushing is necessary and these include:

Cold spots on the radiators or radiators that don’t heat whatsoever
Discoloured water if you bleed the radiators or in extreme cases when you operate the tap
Excessive noise from the boiler unit or the circulation pump
Poor or non-existent hot water even when the system has been working for a short time
These problems by themselves could possibly be fixed without power flushing, however, if you discover more than one sign then it is most likely worth looking at a powerflush.

The benefits of power flushing your central heating system

The end result of power flushing is that the boiler and also the remainder of the central heating system are more efficient. This happens because there’s improved 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 general result is that you save on your heating bills.

The cost of power flushing

As pointed out above power flushing is quite a pricey procedure. The price you pay is based on numerous factors, including the size of the heating system and the quantity of cleansing chemicals needed to flush the system clean. On average you’ll be looking to pay between £350 and £1200 for power flushing and so you should make sure your system will benefit from the procedure and our gas engineers will provide honest advice as to whether or not your system will benefit from a flush.

Outcomes of not power flushing

If your heating system needs to be power flushed and you make a decision not to do it then the troubles will likely deteriorate. The circulation through the pipes and the radiators will slow until very little hot water gets through. This means that the house won’t warm up and the boiler will be working for no real reason. The result of this is that energy will be wasted and in the long term money will be wasted too.

If the whole system is demonstrating signs of bad circulation or you become aware of more than two of the indications mentioned above then power flushing in Bridgend will probably be worth the money you have to pay. If, on the other hand, only some radiators are suffering from cold spots then it will probably be much quicker and a lot easier to take the radiators off the wall and flush them individually. To be certain though it is worth speaking to one of our engineers and letting them take a look at the system for you. Free of charge, no obligation.
