Whether your central heating system is quite new, quite old or somewhere in between, sometimes a system flush can solve a problem or two.
Over time sludge can build up in your system causing cold spots or blockages meaning you're not getting the most out of your boiler. Sometimes this can result in you turning your boiler up and down more often than you need to which isn't good for that pesky gas bill that is shooting up.
Benefits of a system flush
Less cold spots in Radiators meaning they will be performing a lot better
Less demand on the boiler meaning it can run more efficiently
Less time to heat the house meaning you wont be playing with the heating controls
Chemicals are added to the system which can help prolong the life of the boiler
