Why is it Important to Ensure your Heating System Water is Cleaned?

The central heating system in your home has the important job of keeping you and your family warm and comfortable. Many of us assume it will always be there when we need it, but without regular maintenance and servicing, you may be left without heat and hot water and could face expensive repair bills to get your heating system back up and running.  

There are a number of factors that can cause your central heating system to stop working as it should, perhaps one of the most common reasons is a build up debris such as sludge, scale and rust which can prevent water circulating through your heating system and make your heating system less efficient or in severe cases stop it working completely.  

Over time it is normal for your central heating system to accumulate debris in the radiators, pipes and even in your boiler, but ensuring your heating system water is cleaned can help remove this debris and installing a magnetic system filter such as MagnaClean can reduce further build up.

The Advantages of Cleaning your Central Heating System

There are many benefits of cleaning your central heating system, including:  

●     It improves the efficiency of your central heating system by removing debris that can make it work harder and can help reduce your carbon footprint.  

●     Radiators get to temperature faster when the system is free from debris which can help you save money on your energy bills.

Cleaning your Central Heating System with a Power Flush

A power flush  is a process that uses chemicals to flush out any debris that may have collected in your radiators, pipes and boilers to ensure your central heating system is working as it should do and that it is working efficiently.  

It is imperative that you use a Gas Safe Registered heating and plumbing engineer, such as Tailor-Made Property Services in Romsey, to carry out a power flush to ensure it is done correctly and so that you have the correct documentation and certification for your insurance or warranty.  

It is good practice to perform a power flush on a regular basis to help you maintain and prolong the life of your central heating system and also when you are installing a new boiler into an old heating system.  

If you are unsure whether your central heating system could benefit from a power flush here are some common signs to look for:  

●     Cold spots on radiators or cold rooms

●     Radiators take a long time to get hot

●     You need to bleed radiators more frequently

●     Little or no hot water

●     Centralheating system is making noises
