How Often Should Central Heating Be Flushed

If your central heating system is not working as well as it once did or it is older than you would like to admit, then you may be considering flushing the system. Doing this requires expert support so that you don’t end up with a mess that is hard to clean up!

Here at Rowlen Boiler Services we provide central heating flushing as one of our many services and provide you with the support you need to get the most out of your system. To help you work out if flushing is the way forward, read our handy guide and get the advice you need.

What Signs Tell Me That My System Needs to Be Flushed?

Knowing when to flush your system can be difficult, but some warning signs may help you recognise when the time has come:

  • Your radiator or boiler may be making banging or clanging noises
  • You may feel cold spots on the radiators across your house
  • You may find yourself bleeding your radiator more frequently
  • Your boiler may need to be restarted each time you use the heating
  • There may be noticeable leaks coming from the radiators
  • The pipes may be hot, but your radiators may not heat up
  • The heating may take longer to heat up than expected

Many people wrongly assume that they need to arrange a new boiler installation, but as long as you have an annual service that does not flag up any issues, then the problem may be that your central heating system needs to be cleaned out.

What Is Involved In a Central Heating Flush?

When you arrange a system flush, you may wonder what is involved in the process and how long it will take. The good news is that it is pretty straightforward! The engineer will attach a specialist machine to your radiators and send a cleaning chemical through the system to clean out any build-ups and give your radiators a new lease of life.

It is effective because the chemicals used are pushed through at high pressure so that no debris is left behind. Choosing this type of flush is not only the most effective, but it is the least messy and yields the best results!

How Much Does Central Heating Flushing Cost?

Because every central heating system is different, there is not one single price option. Small, uncomplicated systems can take just a few hours to clean, whereas large, complex systems can take a couple of days. 

Whatever system you have, we can provide a no-obligation quote so that you know the price you will pay before you commit to having any work done. Just get in touch and arrange your quote with one of our dedicated team members today.

Don’t Forget Your Boiler Health Too!

Keeping your boiler in good condition is also important, and many people opt to have a boiler service or boiler replacement completed at the same time as their central heating flush. With years of experience in boiler installation, Rowlen Boiler Services is here to help.

We will discuss all your options, and when you decide how you want to proceed, we will be ready to complete the work. All of our engineers are well-qualified and capable so that you can enjoy the peace of mind you need, knowing that your heating and hot water system is ready to face winter months.
