Power Flushing for central heating systems in the West Midlands and Surrounding Areas

Power Flushing

Have you ever noticed your central heating water is black or orange? Do your radiators only get warm at the top? Is your boiler noisy or hot water going hot then cold? If this is the case then you may need a power flush,

A power flush uses a powerful pump at low pressure but high velocity to pump water and cleaning chemicals around your radiator until they are clean and hot all over. Not only will this increase the efficiency of your heating system it will save you money over time and help prevent expensive boiler problems like blocked heat exchangers

Here at Gs Heating we carry out a power flush and water treatment on every boiler we install.. this ensures that providing inhibitors are kept in the system your boiler should never have a failure die to sludge in the system!

UK BUILDING REGULATIONS

In addition to the benefits mentioned above, the Compliance Guide to Part L of the UK Building Regulations for England and Wales requires a central heating system to be cleaned and flushed before a corrosion and scale inhibitor chemical is added during commissioning. It’s also prudent to do this when an old central heating boiler is being replaced by a new boiler. Many boiler manufacturers now make the warranty dependent on flushing and cleaning in accordance with BS7593, Benchmark and Part L.

Boiler and Heating Controls

Boiler and Heating Controls

Boiler Controls, Saving you money!

Heating and boiler controls are as important as a New boiler itself, we offer the most efficient, advanced and user friendly controls available. We are experienced with Honeywell Evo Home, and Honeywell smart controls, Tado Smart controls, Hive and Nest just to name a few !

Are the old dial thermostats destined for the scrapheap?

For most of us, the room thermostat is a simple dial on the wall that allows you (in theory at least) to control the temperature of the home. These old style thermostats are not the most accurate of controls and now there are far more advanced ones available , the point being the new ones can save you money and fuel!

Honeywell Evohome, Hive and Tado

These systems ensure you’re always in charge of your home heating & stored hot water – wherever you are.

These controls have a simple to use control panel that lets you set the temperature in every room in your home – from anywhere in your home or elsewhere , The Honeywell Evohome can have up to 12 zones per control and as many radiator valve heads (HR92/90 ) as you want per zone , it can also control underfloor heating , The Hive and Tado now also have individual radiator thermostats that can be controlled via their Apps

Weather Compensation

With ever increasing fuel bills and the need to be as eco-friendly as possible, it’s important that we all look for ways to save fuel and carbon emissions – and money!
But there is a way to save even more –with just a simple outdoor sensor and some very clever Weather Compensation controls, now available on all manufacturers of combi condensing boilers.
For a relatively small investment you’ll not only save more fuel each year but you’ll also enjoy an incredibly comfortable home – with a pleasant indoor temperature – whatever the weather.

Heating – the basics

Our homes need heating, to replace heat lost through the walls etc. The colder it is outside, the more heat is lost and the more we have to heat the building, to replace that heat, especially in the winter when the heat loss is at its highest level.
This basic explanation is fundamental to understanding how an outdoor weather sensor can help to heat your home in a more efficient and cost-effective way.

Weather compensation controls work by ensuring that the boiler burns the exact amount of fuel required to match the heat lost from the building. The house will always be warm (at the desired temperature) and will never be too hot or too cold. Weather compensation significantly improves
efficiency under partial load conditions and is especially relevant for the UK climate, as for two thirds of the year the boiler will provide only a fraction of its maximum heat load, which means the boiler temperature is reduced for the majority of the year, while still maintaining a constant room temperature of 20ºC.
