Should I Have My Heating System Cleansed

You will hear a lot about treating or cleansing boiler systems. If you are having a new system fitted, then you may be offered the service as part of the installation. What is cleansing and why is it so important when you have a new boiler fitted? Should I have my heating system cleansed?

Should I have my heating system cleansed?

The boiler manufacturer Worcester Bosch thoroughly recommends as good practice that an installer cleanses a heating system. They consider it to be an important part of the process of boiler installation. The process is detailed within British Standard BS7593, and there will be notes within the boiler’s installation and servicing instructions as well as instructions for the flushing agent that your installer will need to follow.

Why has my Heating System Cleansed?

It is recommended as the best practice to cleanse an existing heating system before the installation of a new boiler. This is because the clean, new boiler is going to immediately be filled with debris from elsewhere in the system otherwise. After the installer has connected up the boiler, the heating system should be thoroughly cleaned of debris and refilled with a special chemical called an inhibitor. Your chosen boiler installer needs to be fully conversant with all of the current standards and regulations relating to this part of the installation. You can rest assured that all L&W Heating installers are fully up-to-speed and Gas Safe registered.
