Why should I have my central heating system Power Flushed?

rgi Logo

Across Ireland there are many thousands of central heating systems that have become very inefficient. The accumulation of black iron oxide in a system that manifests itself as ‘black sludge’ can result in many problems that can be very expensive to put right.

Most Boiler Manufacturers now require owners to power flush their systems in order to qualify for full warranty and guarantee on their Boiler.

Advanced power flushing technology can keep help to keep central heating systems working at optimum efficiency by cleansing the system and radiators of any sludge deposits that have built up over time, while leaving them protected against future damage. Flushing your heating system will help to reduce your fuel bills and ensure increased circulation of heat and hot water around your property.


Benefits Include:

  • Improves central heating efficiency
  • Prevents build up of oxidation ‘sludge’
  • Extends lifespan of radiators and boilers
  • Improves water circulation
  • Reduces boiler noise
  • Heating up times are reduced
  • Hotter radiators
  • Save on heating bills
  • Can be done in a day


There are many benefits to having your system Power Flushed. The clear pipes and radiators will help keep it running at optimum efficiency at all times and help prevent breakdowns caused by internal deterioration. This can save you considerable amounts of money over time.

  • Cures flow and circulation problems

  • Restores system efficiency

  • Restores heat output to radiators

  • Cleans the whole system and all pipe work

  • Removes dirty sludge and prevents further problems with proper chemical treatment

  • Cures and prevents boiler noise

  • Power flush also descales the whole system

  • Complete process carried out in one day

  • More effective than traditional methods

  • Minimizes or voids  boiler warranty

  • Power flushing is not a high pressure operation and is suitable for most central heating systems.
