Looking after your Boiler to prevent future breakdowns.
Over 80% of boiler breakdowns are caused by sludge!
Sludge in a central heating system is a common problem that can cause a number of issues, including:
- Reduced efficiency: Sludge can block the flow of water through the system, which can reduce the efficiency of your heating system.
- Increased energy bills: A less efficient heating system will use more energy, which will lead to higher energy bills.
- Damage to components: Sludge can also damage components in your heating system, such as the boiler and radiators.
If you have sludge in your central heating system, it is important to have it removed as soon as possible. You can do this by having your heating system serviced by a qualified engineer. The engineer will be able to flush the system and remove the sludge.
You can also help to prevent sludge from forming in your central heating system by:
- Keeping the system clean: Make sure to clean the filters in your heating system regularly.
- Using a water softener: A water softener can help to reduce the amount of minerals in the water, which can help to prevent sludge from forming.
- Flushing the system regularly: Have your heating system flushed regularly by a qualified engineer.
By following these tips, you can help to keep your central heating system clean and free of sludge.
