Power Flush Bircotes
Every homeowner should consider having a power flush Bircotes done once in a while. There are plenty of benefits that come with power flushing which include efficient performance, reduced wastage of energy and the most important is that it helps to prolong the life of the central heating.
At 2 RED we have been offering power flush Bircotes services for over 25 years. With our experience in the field, we can help remove the sludge, debris and rust inside the system and prevent any further damage. Failure to remove these impurities can have adverse effects on the central heating and you might have to pay for costly repairs and replacements.
Other than having a power flush to clean out your central heating, we also recommend that you have a power flush done when installing a new boiler. This helps to remove blockages from the old system and maximise the performance of the new boiler.
What is Power Flushing?
There are several reasons why a power flush is necessary for your central heating. It helps to restore the efficiency of the system and it also solves different problems like leaks, noisy pumps and cold spots on the pipes and radiators.
The power flush process is a complex and sensitive one. It needs to complete by a professional who has enough experience and training to guarantee the best results and safety of the system. At 2 RED we start the power flush by pumping a special chemical into the system. The chemical helps to dislodge the debris and make the sludge easier to remove. We circulate the chemical to make sure all parts of the system have been cleaned out then we extract the dirt collected together with the chemical.
We then pump in water at high speeds through the flush circuits on the radiator to rinse the system and remove any remaining traces of the debris and sludge. If the water coming out of the system is dirty, we keep discarding it until it comes out clean which is a sign the system is now free from blockages.
As a preventative measure, we add a high-quality inhibitor that stays active inside the system for many years. For the period that the inhibitor stays active, it helps to protect the pipes against corrosion and also prevents the build-up of sludge.
Benefits of Power Flushing
Improved circulation – central heating relies heavily on the flow of water. If the water does not flow easily, it takes longer for the central heating to warm up your home. Once a power flush Bircotes has been completed, water flow is restored. That means most of the heat gets to the radiator and the transfer of heat is more immediate.
You save money – there are many ways a power flush can save you money. First, it saves you money by restoring the efficiency of the central heating which reduces wastage of energy and reduces your energy bill. It also saves you money by reducing the frequency of repairs and replacements of parts which is caused by the immense pressure of having blockages inside the system. A power flush can also significantly increase the life of your central heating.
