The requirement for a power flush arises when the central heating system is significantly contaminated. This can be due to various reasons like faulty installation, inadequate cleansing prior to installation, or bacterial growth.
Building regulations dictate that a proper cleanse should be performed before a new boiler installation. The extent of the cleanse may range from a basic system flush using clean water to a powerful power flush for heavily contaminated systems. This ensures that the new system remains uncontaminated and free from the sludge and debris present in the old one
The cost of power flushing a central heating system with up to 10 radiators is typically £400.00 + VAT, with an additional charge of £30.00 + VAT per radiator beyond that
