At this time of year, it is crucial that you remain alert to any signs from your home’s central heating system that its functionality or efficiency may be compromised. Certainly, you will want the boiler in your Chelmsford home to continue providing you with reliable heat right through the winter.
However, if your central heating system is slow to warm up, your radiators are completely or partially cold or there are ‘kettling’ noises coming from the boiler, you might have reason for concern.
Thankfully, there is also a straightforward way to resolve such problems – by requesting that a heating engineer in Chelmsford attends your property to undertake a power flush.
What difference does power flushing make?
If you are to understand just how important power flushing is for a domestic central heating system, it is helpful to know what happens within your system from the moment it is turned on. There are two different metals in a central heating system – copper and iron – that interact with each other in a process called electrolysis. This, in turn, leads to the build-up of black oxide (sludge) in the system.
These two metals, together with the constant flow of water in your heating system, ensure that it does not take long for the sludge to accumulate in a manner that gradually restricts the passage of the water through your system’s pipework.
This puts ever-greater pressure on the pump, and if the problem is not addressed, raises the risk of pump failure and the eventual complete breakdown of the system.
Thankfully, a power flush is all that it takes to remove the black oxide and corrosion deposits from your heating system, restoring its former performance and reliability.
