A power flush is simply a process that gives your heating system a good internal clean and normally improves the central heating system’s efficiency; which may result in reduced gas bills.
Over time some heating systems can experience poor circulation causing lukewarm radiators, poor hot water, elevated noise and debris build up. By ‘power flushing’ your heating system in York, the sludge and built up deposit can be removed via inline magnetic filtration, it will make your system work more efficiently.
We are one of the few companies locally that specialise in power flushing in York and have brought back to life many aged heating systems and saved consumers £100’s of £££ specially on oil & LPG boiler central heating systems.
How does Power Flushing Work?
Because the water in a central heating system is constantly pumped in the same direction, iron filings, sludge, oil and grease build up within each radiator in your system. This has a detrimental effect on the efficiency of both your radiators and your boiler – in reality – the entire central heating system, lowering its life expectancy.
When a system is professionally power flushed, the system is flushed in numerous directions, agitating the sludge and debris, so the system can be drained of the deposits. When flushing a system, specific chemicals are used to ensure the breakdown of the sludge within the system, ahead of the deposits being extracted.
Power flushing your Central Heating system can also expand the lifespan of your boiler and under Part L of the building regulations, your system has to be power flushed when an old central heating boiler is being replaced by a new boiler.
The cost of power flushing in York does vary so please do call to schedule a site visit or talk about your requirements on the phone.
What is a MagnaCleanse?
Produced by the manufacturers of the award winning MagnaClean® Professional filter, the MagnaCleanse RapidFlush Filter has 5 times the capacity of a normal power flush and is designed to remove all oxide particles and debris in one pass. What enters the filter is retained and stopped from recirculating.
The robust filter consists of a unique swirl chamber, in the centre of which sits a highly effective magnetic core. The polluted water returning from the system within a flush is forced around and along the length of the magnet where any oxide particles are exposed to the powerful magnetic field.
Particles are drawn towards the core and prevented from circulating back into the system. This carries on until a saturation level is attained at which point no more build-up is possible. Surprisingly we still encounter new boilers which have been installed by other companies and the central heating system hasn’t been properly flushed, people are often stunned to hear their new boiler now requires a pricey repair all because the contractor never power flushed the central heating system properly.
