Corrosion in central heating systems can lead to a build up of sludge which, over time, can cause blocked pipes and prevent radiators from heating up correctly. This can increase your utility bills due to the inefficiency of the central heating system. If not flushed out, the sludge can cause breakdowns, damage to your boiler, and can seriously affect the lifespan of your system.
Indications of corrosion and sludge
- Boiler noises which gradually get worse over time
- Radiators having a cold area at the bottom
- Pin holes and leaks developing in radiators
- Blocked pipe work
- Wearing of pumps and valves
System flushing will remove the build of sludge by flushing out the system until the water runs clear, restoring the heating efficiency of your existing central heating system.
