How powerflushing can make your heating service more efficient as well as save your business money

Have you noticed cold areas on office radiators, excessive noise from the boiler or the heating system pump, cloudy tap water, discoloured water when bleeding the radiators and (or) the slow warming of the heating system in general – all of which disrupt not only productivity but the general cadence of a typical working day?

If so, your heating system might be due a powerflush.

A powerflush is a cleansing process used to remove corrosive elements from a central heating system to prevent damage to the system and its components. It’s the rapid movement of water through the heating system, aided by the use of super strength cleaning chemicals (including sludge crust breaker, descaler and corrosion inhibitor), to remove deposits.

Unblocking pipes and clearing sludge minimises corrosion by constraining the build-up of debris (limescale, rust etc.) and inhibiting the growth of microbiological organisms, which will improve the efficiency of your central heating system – radiators swill be hotter and will warm up quicker, employees won’t cringe when filling the kettle with water to make a warm drink and you’ll be able to have a meeting or conduct a phone call without the intrusion of a rowdy boiler. Pumps will also last longer and radiators will have an extended life if there is no corrosion present and suitable corrosion inhibitors are used.

A system that is longer lasting and less likely to break down will result in reduced running costs, saving your business money.

Powerflushing a heating system can take up to six hours, sometimes longer if deposits are extreme, and the cost will depend on the size and location of the system.
