This sludge and debris will pile up over time and can seriously affect your heating system, in the worst case scenario render your heating system essentially useless.

The process of a power flush is very simple, a high-pressure pumping device is used to pump in certain chemicals while at the same time applying enough pressure to loosen and flush out whatever dirt is clogged up in the plumbing, therefore improving the circulation of water in the previously poor heating system.Here is a quick and simple guide on the pros & cons on having a power flush.

Pros:

  • Power flush improves the heating efficiency of the central heating system.
  • Can diminish excessive noise from boiler.
  • Power flushing is a long term investment which in time should be able to pay itself back through better efficiency heating system.
  • Cleaning out your heating system prolongs longevity of both boiler and radiators.

Cons:

  • This method is only really effective on heating systems and, the more severely clogged systems need to be taken apart and cleaned manually with tools.
  • If you are considering a power flush to your system, some companies prey on unknowing customers and they might try to persuade you to get an expensive flush you don´t need or charge you twice the price of what it´s worth. It is always a good idea to get more than one quote and do look on-line for recommendations as well as testimonials of the companies you are considering.
  • The condition of your plumbing needs to be rather specific for a flush to be the best choice and you could end up throwing several hundred pounds down the drain where you could just have gone with a cheaper solution. However, if your system does fit the criteria, a power flush is definitely worth it.
