Flushing the house heating system ! ! ! !
Heating systems, like any engineering system, require periodic cleaning. This is the cleaning of heat exchangers, heating systems, cleaning and other maintenance. Over time, during operation, limes and other organic and inorganic compounds accumulate on the internal piping system, radiators, boilers and heat exchangers. This sediment reduces the cross section of the pipes and the efficiency of the heat transfer.
Therefore, the effect of reducing the temperature of the premises is to affect the maximum power of the system and fuel consumption. As the thermal conductivity of the decomposition is 40 times lower than the thermal conductivity of the metal in the heating systems, the thickness of the 1 mm thick sediment reduces the heat transfer by about 7%. If this process does not stop in time, valves, valves and other heat exchanger equipment fail. Pipeline washing is essential for all types of constructions of 5-6 years of age. Dependence of fuel surplus on sediment thickness:
Why is there sludge in the radiator?
The older your central heating system is, the more likely it is you have sludge in your radiators.
Blocked radiators make your bills higher, as your heating has to work harder to warm your home. Sludge can also damage your boiler, heat pump and valves.
- Radiator sludge is a mix of dirt and rust. This builds up over time and gathers at the bottom of your radiators.
- The sludge stops hot water flowing through your system properly. This creates cold areas on your radiator.
- Other areas of the radiator are unaffected by the sludge and warm up as normal.
