What does a dirty central heating cause
Before deciding to get an emergency central heating power flushing service, it is best knowing about the cause of the central heating problems, what damages are caused by the dirty central heating system and what are the pros of getting the central heating clean at such a high cost.
There could be two main causes of your central heating system becoming dirty or sludgy from two different types of systems.
- The system boiler open system
- The combination boiler closed system
The most common system in the past to gain sludge would be the old system boiler that gets it's elements from metal and air with a build up of bacteria.
The combination boiler can get its elements from corroding radiators, trapped air and generally takes much longer to build up bacteria.
The old system boiler will have a couple of tanks, a cylinder and a boiler, well a combination boiler being the closed system will just rely on the gas boiler.
How does bacteria get into your central heating and how does this make your water dirty and turn in to sludge
Bacteria is all around us in the air and when it gets into the central heating system, the bacteria grows.
Bacteria are one celled or unicellular microorganisms that reproduce when one cell splits into two and two cells split into 4 and so on.
The process of the bacteria reproducing is called binary fision and in perfect conditions, a single bacteria can become more than a billion bacteria within 10 hours or more.
Bacteria doesn't just grow on it's own and requires nutrients that helps the bacteria to grow.
Bacteria can obtain energy and nutrients by performing photosynthesis, decomposing dead organisms and wastes, or breaking down chemical compounds.
Bacteria obtain energy and nutrientsby establishing close relationships with other organisms, including mutualistic and parasitic relationships.
In the case of the central heating system, it's not just the bacteria you have to worry about but the natural corrusion of iron and mix that with bacteria, this causes sludge over time.
What are the negative points about power flushing
When you find yourself in an emergency situation, maybe it's cold, could be that your boiler isnt working correctly, it is always important to understand the negative points of a power flush before organising an emergency central heating power flushing service.
One of the biggest problems about getting a power flush done is the cost. The reason a power flush can be costly is because of the equipement being used and the amount of work that is required when doing a power flush correctly.
Another negative point is that you could discover a leak occuring, however, these types of leaks are normally leaks that would of happend within the next 12 months.
Discovering a leak on a central heating system well doing a power good be negative, however, this could be looked upon as a positive because, you already have an engineer working on the central heating system at that point meaning, the amount of damage has been reduced rather than turning up one day and your house being flooded
What advice could I get in the future to reduce the chances of having a power flush
The only way to reduce the chances of getting an emergency central heating power flush service done in future is to get a central heating filter.
Once you have a central heating filter, you will require an anual service which is done alongside your boiler service.
The pros of getting this done is that your cetral heating system stays clean, keeps your cetral heating system in tip top condition, you get better flow rate and reduces the need for a 24 hour emergency plumber.
