Signs you need a power flush

Is your home warm enough? 

If you cannot raise the temperature in your home enough to keep it comfortably warm, this may suggest issues with your boiler or central heating systems. The main cause of a temperature loss is sludge and debris building up in your heating system's pipes. With these blockages, the hot water from your boiler is not free to move around and therefore cannot heat your home. Power flushing the system with the help of our local London plumbers and Gas Safe registered heating engineers is the best way to remove this debris. 

Noisy radiators and boiler 

Again, along with reduced heat, you may begin to notice strange noises coming from your boiler or radiators. This is also caused by a build-up of sludge and debris in your heating system. This build-up is a natural part of the system and cannot be avoided. Luckily, power flushing by a plumbing, heating and gas safety specialist can easily resolve it. 

Cold spots on your radiators 

Given that these blockages form in specific areas within your central heating system or boiler, you may find that your radiators are cold in these specific areas. Over time this collection of debris will attract more and more until it completely blocks the movement of warm water through the system. Again, power flushing is the solution. 

Your heating is slow to warm up

As the sludge and debris build up in the system over the years, it can take the warm water longer and longer to circulate through your central heating system fully. Ultimately, this will make your heating slower to reach the proper temperature. Power flushing and central heating repairs by plumbing, boiler or heating specialists is your best option.

Banging noises coming from your boiler

Banging noises emanating from your boiler have a similar source to the noises mentioned before. As your boiler is struggling to force water through your heating system, these banging noises are a product of that struggle against the sludge and debris. A professional plumbing service can remove these blockages through power flushing. This is the best way to get your central heating system back in working order. 

Your boiler not operating as it used to 

When your boiler was newly and freshly installed, your heating system would have been free of the blockages that older systems suffer from. Therefore, it is common to find that as your boiler ages, it will struggle more and more to operate as it did when it was a new boiler. Ultimately, power flushing is the best solution to keep your boiler in tip-top shape.
