Powerflushing: the benefits to your home
Whether you’re aware of it or not, the buildup of dirt, sludge, rust and debris from inside your heating system is slowly reducing its efficiency. You probably won’t realise until you decide to look into the cause of those high bills or question why you’re having to crank the heating up further to feel the warmth.
Powerflushing is a cleaning process we provide for your home, using a high flow/low pressure unit and strong chemicals to rid debris and rust from throughout your heating system. A thorough clean will help reduce any chance of wasted energy within your home, allowing for cost savings and a better heating system.
Do I need a power flush?
- Excessive noise from your boiler
- Poor hot water distribution
- Poor heat distribution around the home
- Discoloured radiator water when conducting a bleed
- Cold spots on radiators
Better heat distribution
Reduced energy bills
Increased efficiency means less work for your boiler, and less often. By increasing its output and ensuring all of the energy is getting around your home, you will likely find you can turn down your boiler to a temperature lower than you are used to. You may also find you don’t need it on quite as often. Bonus!
Longer lifespan for your boiler
By keeping your boiler regularly serviced and using a power flushing service when you notice any of the warning signs, you keep your boiler healthy. The long term benefits of these processes mean a significantly reduced likelihood of you needing an unexpected boiler replacement. It’s also likely to lead to a reduction in the need for small repair work, too.
So, what next?
If you are noticing the signs of bad circulation within your home, then a power flush is likely to be the answer to your problems. However, if you are only suffering from cold spots on a couple of radiators, it may be quicker and easier to flush them separately. At THT Ltd, our PowerFlush service includes an additional MagnaCleanse at no extra cost. You can read more about it here.
