Yep – Winter is here and the heating system is struggling. That’s the problem living in such a hard water area – sludge builds in the system and apparently causes cold spots in the radiators. In my case they are cooler at the bottom than at the top. It’s worse downstairs than up – but it’s just a symptom of sludge…and it will only get worse the longer it is left.
So, I’ve got three quote so far…two at £450 plus VAT, one at £600-£650. The fact that my radiator valves are unlikely to survive the power flush means an extra £100-£200 on top of the bill. Just in time for Christmas…nice.
