Power Flush Balham

Are radiators taking their time to heat up? Have you noticed cold spots on the radiator? Or have you noticed a rise in the price of your energy bills? Your home boiler and central heating system might benefit from a powerflush. 

A powerflush sees water injected through the entire route of the central heating system to remove any sludge, rust, and other debris that is otherwise affecting the performance of the central heating system. When we powerflush your system, we will also add additional mobilizing and cleansing agents to further improve the cleansing process.

Our Balham Based Radiator Services

Few of the services offered by us include:

  • Powerflushing
  • Radiator repairs
  • Chemical descaling
  • Magnetic filters
  • Repair leak
  • Fault finding and repair work

Radiators

We fit a wide range of radiators. Everything from your standard Myson radiators to the modern panel radiators with fancy chrome top valves. If you want to add a radiator to your central heating system, it is easy enough for us to do. You can add a radiator at any point in the flow and return circuit, but we must make sure you don’t take heat away from the current radiators.

Power Flushing

During a boiler’s lifetime, corrosion and debris accumulate in your radiator’s pipework and boiler. The radiator starts rusting internally and produces black iron oxide, also known as sludge. The sludge then starts moving around your heating system which gradually blocks pipes, valves, and eventually the boiler. Power flushing is the process by which corrosion and sludge deposits are removed from within the central heating system in your domestic or commercial property.

At J.A. London Plumbing & Heating, we undertake the complete responsibility of removing sludge and rust deposits that have built up in your boiler and heating system. Our experienced engineers use the most advanced equipment to remove rust and sludge from your central heating so you can get reliable hot water, reduced fuel bills and a warmer home. Power flushing your inefficient central heating system is always a more economical option than replacement.

Benefits of Power flushing

  • Radiators will produce more heat and boilers run silently
  • Cheaper fuel and gas bills
  • Lower risks of breakdown
  • The efficiency of your central heating will be enhanced
  • No cold spots on radiators

How It All Works

  • The power flush equipment is set outside and connected directly to the central heating system.
  • The whole system is cleaned and taking off the radiators isn’t required.
  • An effective power flush cleaner is added to the water in the system which helps in releasing the rust.
  • To check cold spots on the radiator surfaces, the heating is turned on.
  • Water is flushed through and by vibrating cold spots on individual radiators, this helps the sludge release rapidly.
  • Magnetic filters are fitted to collect the sludge flowing from the radiators.
  • Radiators and pipe works are power flushed thoroughly to ensure the water is clean and pH neutral.
  • Once the system has been cleaned, an anti-corrosion inhibitor is added.
  • A certificate is issued upon completion and annual central heating servicing is recommended.
