How often should radiators be serviced?

by | 20/ 06/ 22

No matter how well insulated your home is, the central heating system you use will need looking after from time to time. Servicing radiators often involves a powerflush of the central heating system. It can be tricky to decide when you should call someone in to flush your system. You can feel heat coming out and things seem fine, why would you need a powerflush? 

Because central heating systems don’t last forever, and whilst it’s easy to put off calling out a specialist for a tune-up, sometimes you can leave it a little too long. Because of that, here’s what you need to know about how often your central heating system should be powerflushed. 

How Often Should Your Central Heating be Powerflushed?

If you’re not sure if you need a powerflush, it’s best to physically check the state of your radiators. For example, look for cold spots when you turn the heating on – these could be a sign there’s a blockage somewhere. Not only could the radiator be affected, but the whole central heating system could need new parts fitted or in some cases needs replacing entirely. 

Should Your Radiators Be Replaced?

Radiators don’t last forever. From time to time they’re going to need to be replaced, just like anything else in your home. But are your radiators up for a refurb? It will depend on the age of the central heating system and radiators you’re using. 

If you’ve been in your home for more than 10 years, for example, and the system has never been flushed in that time it’s likely your radiators will need replacing. But if you’re not sure, it’s best to check with a professional.
