Home Gas Boiler Issues

As with anything gas related, you can only use qualified engineers. We’re a hardy nation so we often think we can tackle things ourselves, but the safety of your family is paramount, so using a Gas Safe Registered engineer is your first port of call. And yes we do tick those boxes here but that goes without saying really doesn’t it - we’ve already mentioned that we’re experts.

Ok so we’re assuming you’re having a few problems heat wise? Without taking a look in more detail, it’s often tricky to diagnose the root of a problem but there are common symptoms to your central heating system needing a power flush that we recognise. Are you experiencing any of these?

  • - Do you have small leaks in some of your radiators?
  • - Does it take a long time for your system to warm up?
  • - Are some radiators totally cold yet others are warm?
  • - Are some radiators cold but the pipes are hot?
  • - Are your upstairs radiators warmer than those downstairs?
  • - Are some radiators cold at the bottom and hot at the top?
  • - Does your boiler regularly shut down and need restarting?
  • - Is your boiler really noisy?

A Build Up of Sludge & Debris

Whilst answering yes to some of these questions could suggest other problems are at play, the above problems are often caused by a build up of sludge and debris which a boiler power flush can usually solve. Giving us a call to describe your symptoms or the age of your boiler will help as the older your central heating system is, the more likely it is that you have sludge in your radiators. Obviously when the central heating system is in use, the constant flushing process pumps water around the pipes and through the boiler. They can become clogged up with dirt, debris and rust with time and this causes a build up of sludge, which being heavier than the water, settles at the bottom of the radiators where the hot water is then unable to reach.

If left unchecked, this can build up in radiators, circulator pumps, heat exchangers and pipework causing the entire system to work much harder to keep your home warm. Over time your bills will slowly creep up (along with the sludge!) but in severe cases it can also lead to bigger blockages breaking parts of your system or your boiler totally failing prematurely. If conducted properly, a boiler power flush will clear out all of that debris and have nice clean hot water running through your system faster than you can say erm… Merseyside Central Heating??

Gas Safe Registered Engineers

Which leads us nicely onto why it’s best to call in the experts. We mentioned calling a Gas Safe Registered engineer before didn’t we? Well there’s a reason for that. If you’re tempted to try this at home to save a bob or two you may like to consider the following…

Powerflush A good power flush will send water at high velocity through your central heating system to dislodge and remove all that yucky sludge we mentioned. When you think that this is rust, dirt, limescale and debris that may have been around a while, you’ll want to make sure you’ve actually cleared it, as causing a blockage will cause far more problems than you started with. If your return pipes aren’t returning it defeats the object and not using a powerful enough flush is likely to only clear a single path through the system and not the whole system so will be about 20% effective at best. It can also get very messy too if you don’t have the right equipment to drain the sludge, debris and water into!

Time Depending on a few factors such as the age of your system, how much sludge has built up and the size of your system, the power flush can take anything from 6 to 10 hours when conducted by an expert. Imagine this process in DIY mode! And that’s IF you don’t encounter any problems with blockages etc Even with an expert involved, in extreme cases it can sometimes take longer than a day to complete so this needs to be borne in mind if you’re thinking of tackling this yourself.

Safety Besides the obvious point that you’re dealing with gas appliances here, most power flushes are conducted with chemicals to ensure the efficacy of the process. The range and diversity of chemicals available is huge, but so is the quality of them. Even using a lesser quality engineer could see you with an inferior chemical or service, so we’d always suggest sourcing at least two quotes from qualified experts to ensure they know what they are doing. Obviously we’re hoping we’d be at least one of those calls you make for a no obligation quote, but no pressure (pun very much intended!) but check out reviews and recommendations here too for your own peace of mind. This is definitely a case of getting what you pay for - cheaper now doesn’t mean cheaper long term.

Full Central Heating & Boiler Power Flush Process

Expertise The power flush can sometimes identify other problems in which case you’d need an expert to diagnose the issue. Whilst the build up of sludge can cause problems, removing the sludge doesn’t magically fix them. The full process needs to be conducted properly. For instance leaving sludge removing chemicals in your system for a long time can cause more sludge to form or harden, but it’s very difficult to ensure you’ve completed the process properly as a novice. Another consideration is that occasionally it’s cheaper to replace your system rather than repair it but you’ll not have the knowledge to make this diagnosis and could waste money on the flushing process unnecessarily.

Certificate Last but most certainly not least, if you have a warranty on any part of your boiler or central heating system you’ll need a certificate for any work embarked upon, as deviating from this could render future insurance or warranty claims void. We can provide a certificate to prove that the power flush has been carried out which is crucial if you need to evidence to a manufacturer or insurance provider that you have had all work carried out by a professional.

Here at Merseyside Central Heating Ltd we’re a friendly bunch who like to help. Not only can we professionally deal with your boiler power flush itself as well as any ensuing problems, we can also advise you on the maintenance of your central heating system going forwards. We can advise you on how often to flush out your system for optimum performance and if you need any help or advice on your hot spots, cold spots, boilers or pipes get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to help.
