What exactly is a Powerflush?

A Powerflush is a cleaning process carried out by our heating engineers for your central heating which removes dirt, rust, sludge and any other debris that may have built up within your system (radiators, pipes, boiler etc) over time. 

Our heating engineers use a Proflush Professional Magmaster power flushing unit to send water through your system at very high speeds to dislodge any unnecessary build-up of debris.

We only use the best power flushing unit available supplied by Norstrom. To read more about the Proflush Professional Magmaster we utilise click here.

The Benefits of having a Powerflush carried out

Power flushing is a process that involves cleaning the central heating system using high-pressure water and chemicals to remove debris, rust, and sludge build-up. Here are some of the benefits of having a power flushing:

Improved Heating Efficiency

A power flush can remove the build-up of debris and sludge in your central heating system, improving the system's efficiency. This means that your heating system will use less energy to heat your home, leading to lower energy bills and a more comfortable living environment.

Longer Lifespan of Your Heating System

Power flushing can help extend the lifespan of your heating system by removing the build-up of debris and sludge, which can cause corrosion and damage to your system over time. This means that you will not have to replace your heating system as frequently, saving you money in the long run.

Improved Heat Distribution

Over time, the build-up of debris and sludge can cause blockages in your central heating system, leading to uneven heat distribution and cold spots in your home. A power flush can help remove these blockages, allowing for even heat distribution throughout your home.

Reduced Risk of Breakdowns

A power flush can reduce the risk of breakdowns and repairs by removing the build-up of debris and sludge, which can cause damage to your heating system over time. This means that you will not have to spend as much money on repairs or replacement parts for your heating system.

Cleaner Water

A power flush can help improve the quality of your water by removing the build-up of rust and debris in your central heating system. This means that you will have cleaner water for bathing, washing, and cooking.
