Correspondingly, do I need to flush my central heating system?
Signs that you need a power flush It is a good idea to think about having a power flush on your whole central heating system when you have a new boiler installed. A power flush to your central heating system is recommended every 5-6 years to keep your boiler in tip top condition and working as you'd expect.
Similarly, how often do you need a power flush? To keep the system in good shape, power flushing is a must every five to six years. But, you can also consider power flushing the system every eight to ten years. It will depend on the quality and sturdiness of the materials used in building the system.
Also asked, how do I clean the sludge out of my central heating system?
Power-flush. The easiest way to clean sludge in a radiator is to pay a professional to do it for you. Plumbers can perform 'power-flushes', which involve attaching flushing units to your central heating pipework and pumping clean, fresh water into the system. This forces out any gunk and debris.
