Regular maintenance is the key to cost-saving with your central heating system. You can’t prevent all faults from happening, but with regular maintenance carried out by professional technicians, you can greatly decrease the chances that something unexpected will go wrong with your central heating system. It’s much cheaper to prevent a problem than to fix it after it happens. Power flushing is one such tool at your disposal. To talk to one of our Portsmouth-based experts about power flushing your central heating system. You can reach us by simply dialling 01425 208031.
Power flushing is the process of pumping special fluid through your radiator system to flush out contaminants that might otherwise build up and affect the proper functioning of your central heating. The process is not disruptive, unlike more involved methods that might require disconnecting individual radiators from the system. Often your No1PHD professional will only need to access one point of your central heating system to carry out the work. This makes it a great way to take care of your heating without the need for periodically upturning your home.
While debris can build up in radiators and radiator pipes, particularly as radiator pipes are often small in diameter in places, the most pressing reason to prevent too large a quantity of contaminants building up in your central heating system is protect the water pump. This pump is what pushes your heated water around your home. If it were to become too clogged up with debris, it would struggle and perhaps fail to do this job properly. Some warning signs that this is happening are loud banging noises from your boiler as the pump struggles, and your boiler cutting out soon after turning on. The cutting out is a result of the water in the boiler getting too hot (because it is not being pumped away) and the boiler detecting the temperature and shutting down as a safety measure. If you think you may have this kind of issue but are unsure, No1PHD can help you verify your fault.
Absolutely blown away by the service we received. Took all the stress out of losing our heating and hot water. Highly recommended!

Couldn’t have asked for a faster resolution to our drainage conundrum. Nothing was too much for these guys who were brilliant throughout.

The debris in your central heating system can come from a few places, such as deposits in the water if you live in an area with hard water. But the main source of debris in your central heating system is rust from the radiators themselves. It may seem like an ill-thought design, but it makes more sense economically to make the radiators out of steel, which reacts with oxygen and rusts, rather than a much more expensive material that would be resistant to rust. Standard radiators have an approximate life expectancy of 8-10 years before it is recommended you replace them. But proper maintenance can extend that life.
This process is exacerbated by radiators not being properly bled, which is another service No1PHD are happy to provide. Bleeding a radiator is the process of removing air that has gotten into the system. Remember, it is the air reacting with the metal of your radiator that causes the rust to begin with.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
