"Cleaning a dirty heating system could save you $208 every year"*
Best practice when installing a boiler onto a new or existing hydronic heating system is that the system should be thoroughly cleaned.
Cleaning a new system will remove any installation debris and flux residues which if left inside the system will cause corrosion.
Restoring an old system will remove sludge build-up, improving the efficiency of the system and help save on fuel costs.

to prolong system life and efficiency
“The absence of correct water treatment can reduce system effectiveness by typically 15%”
After cleaning, it is important to protect your system from returning scale, corrosion and sludge build-up.
Both chemical inhibitors and physical system filters are proven to provide ongoing protection for the life of the system.
to ensure durable protection
“1 in 5 households in the US have suffered a heating breakdown”
It is important to ensure that once a system is cleaned and protected it is maintained on an annual basis.
Many factors can reduce the level of protection of a heating system, for instance system water losses by the removal of a radiator whilst decorating. We therefore advise checking the quality of water and level of protection annually.
