A build up of sludge and sediment in your central heating system is something that everybody wants to avoid. This sludge can not only be harmful to your system but will also cause your bills to rise as your boiler uses more fuel to reach your optimum temperature. It’s easy to tell if you have sludge in your radiator by checking for cold spots on each radiator unit. If you can noticeably feel that your radiators are hot at the top and around the edges but are lower in temperature in the middle and at the bottom, then you probably have a sludge problem.
To stop this sludge from causing any further damage to your central heating system, a power flush service is strongly advised. If you opt not to power flush your central heating system when you quite clearly have a build up of sludge then the blockage will slowly get bigger. As your sludge build up gets bigger the circulation of water through your central heating unit will become increasingly restricted.
In order to prevent sludge from occurring in your central heating system for as long as possible you should add a chemical inhibitor to your system. If your central heating sludge problem has become so bad that you’re really starting to notice a problem with the temperature, then you should power flush your entire central heating system, this will return it to a better level of operation. A highly trained professional from Flush Radiators will conduct this power flushing process for you to get the efficiency of your central heating back on track.
