Central Heating & Powerflushing Services

Central Heating Systems

Central heating is the process by which heat travels around your home, often through a system of pipes coming from your boiler, passing through multiple radiators, and even under floors.

Are you having any of the following problems with your central heating system?

  • Noisy pipes
  • Radiators constantly need bleeding
  • System taking too long to heat up
  • Radiators feel colder towards the top
  • Low hot water pressure

At BumbleBee we know how important heating your home is and our expert team of engineers will assess each situation individually and provide a solution to keep your central heating system working efficiently and well-maintained. From installations to repairs and maintenance, we can handle it all.




Powerflushing is a popular way of cleaning and maintaining your central heating system. It removes any rust, debris, or sludge build-up, by sending water at high pressure through the heating system. Blockages could eventually lead to a boiler breakdown, which is why a boiler cleansing process is advised when you spot signs your heating system is deficient.

A powerflush enables efficient heat distribution throughout your home, improving the quality of your central heating system. At Bumblebee we use a Kamco CF90 machine for all powerflushing services, coupled with quality Ferncox chemicals.

Powerflushing FAQ

How long does a powerflush take?

The length of time needed to carry out a powerflush depends on the heating system, its size, and the condition of your boiler. Typically a home powerflush can take up to 8 hours, for advanced and complicated systems this could take up to 2 days.

After the powerflush is completed, water will be able to flow freely through the heating system and any debris will be collected by the high-quality Kamco CF90 machine and disposed of.
