Why should you get a Powerflush?
There are many reasons for getting a Powerflush. From having issues with your central heating system to replacing your boiler and many more. Below we have listed some of the most common reasons for Powerflushing.
Make your heating more efficient
The harder your boiler has to work to push water around your system the less efficient your central heating system is. A Powerflush can save you up to 33% on your heating bills. As well as reducing the noise your boilers and pipes make and making your home warmer.
Make your central heating system last longer
Having debris floating around in your central is bad for your pipes, bad for your radiators and bad for your boiler. Your entire system can be broken or at least damaged by having rust and sludge pumped around it. the longer these things are in there and build up the greater impact they could have. A-Rated Powerflush ensure that your systems water is clean and add preventative chemicals to keep your system clean for a long time.
Keep your Boiler's warranty valid and up to code
BS7593-2006 is imminently changing to BS7593-2019 and this will affect the heating industry in a number of ways. The main changes are that in-line magnetic filters will be a requirement on all new boiler installs but also testing and redosing systems will become more stringent which is where our aftercare analysis (optional) comes in real handy to maintain that boiler warranty, remember a clean heating system is a happy heating system and that’s what boiler manufacturers look for to see if a systems water quality is maintained to a high standard. Also, the cleaning/servicing of filters annually is part of the new British Standard. The revised standard for the preparation, commissioning and maintenance of domestic heating and cooling water systems came into effect on 31 May 2019, superseding BS 7593:2006 which was immediately withdrawn. The standard now includes the following key changes for those specifying, installing and maintaining domestic heating and cooling systems: An in-line filter should be fitted to ALL systems All recommended cleaning methodologies can be improved with external magnetite capture, PowerFlush equipment and mechanical vibration of radiators if needed. A water test is required to test the level of inhibitor and cleanliness of the system every year. BS 7593:2019 is now applicable to both closed loop heating and cooling circuits Biocide is required in cooling and low temperature heating systems, and should be considered for higher temperature systems for added protection during downtime
