A power flush is like a deep clean for your central heating system. It scrubs away all the gunk and grime lurking inside, thanks to special chemicals and magnets that help in the cleaning process. Once everything is squeaky clean, we add a special chemical called an “inhibitor” to keep the system clean and prevent sludge from coming back.

How Much Does It Cost?

Our power flushing service is priced at: 

  1. Power flush (Hard flush). Between £400 and £800 depending on number of radiators. 
  2. Chemicals flush (Soft flush). £250 and £500 depending on number of radiators. 

We also offer underfloor heating power flushing, which is the same price as above.

Is Powerflushing Suitable For Older Heating Systems?

In some cases, especially with older systems, power flushing may struggle to completely clear stubborn sludge from certain parts of the system. Open vented systems pose the toughest challenge as they tend to accumulate not just more sludge but also hardened deposits over the years. 

While the chemicals used in power flushing can help, they may not always be potent enough to break down hardened sludge, and the flushing machines may struggle to push through tough blockages.

In the worst-case scenarios where there are potential sludge issues, especially with old radiators, it’s often more effective to address the root cause directly by replacing the radiators. By doing so, we not only eliminate the source of the problem but also remove a significant amount of sludge in the process. 

In severe cases, where the problem persists, replacing pipework may be necessary to ensure the long-term health and efficiency of your heating system.

Sludge stands as the number 1 enemy of central heating systems and boilers, taking a significant toll on their efficiency and overall lifespan. Its presence not only reduces performance but also speeds up wear and tear, and reduces the longevity of both the boiler and the entire heating system. If sludge is found in your system, we would suggest our expert power flushing service.

While a chemical flush can address minor issues and improve the performance of a fully functional heating system, a POWERFLUSH offers a significantly more effective solution. Using advanced technology such as the FERNOX power flushing machine, backed up by powerful magnets, this allows us to remove as much sludge as possible.

Benefits Of Power Flushing

Our power flushing service offers many benefits, including: 

Improved Efficiency: By removing built-up sludge and debris, power flushing restores proper circulation within the system, improving the efficiency of your heating system.

Enhanced Performance: Cleaned pipes and radiators ensure that heat is distributed evenly throughout your home, eliminating cold spots and improving overall heating performance.

Extended Lifespan: Power flushing helps to prolong the lifespan of your boiler and central heating system by reducing strain on components and preventing corrosion and damage caused by sludge buildup.

Reduced Energy Bills: A more efficient heating system consumes less energy to achieve the desired temperature, resulting in lower energy bills and long-term savings.

Preventative Maintenance: Regular power flushing prevents future issues such as boiler breakdowns and radiator blockages, saving you money on costly repairs and ensuring uninterrupted heating.

Improved Water Quality: Power flushing removes contaminants from your heating system, leading to cleaner water circulation and reducing the risk of corrosion and limescale buildup.

Overall, power flushing is an essential maintenance procedure that helps to optimise the performance, efficiency, and longevity of your central heating system, providing you with an efficient, and cost-effective heating solution for years to come.
