Did you know that taking care of your central heating system can save you time and money in the long run?

Over time sludge and debris can build in our heating system causing pipes and radiators to corrode. Consequently, radiators and pipes can become blocked which can then slow down the process of heat reaching significant parts of the heating system. In most cases when sludge and debris occurs, our heating system does not function properly and can cause significant damage to the pipes, valves, pumps, and even heat exchanges. In fact, in some cases a whole new boiler is needed, which can cost the home-owner thousands of pounds, leaving a great big whole in their bank balance.  However, there is a simple remedy that could save you from this, and that is the procedure of a POWER-FLUSH!
