Limescale and Iron Oxide. What's the problem?

Iron Oxide - Your steel radiators and other metallic components corrode over time to produce Iron Oxide. The Iron Oxide, also known as Magnetite, bonds with other corroded debris in the system to form thick sludge deposits. These deposits then stick to the internal components of the boiler such as the heat exchanger and inside the pipework itself. Over time, the heating system starts to lose efficiency, the internal parts become worn and eventually this is where you get boiler breakdowns. Hard water, as we have in London, accelerates the process.

Limescale - While everyone is familiar with the build up of scale on the element of a kettle, you probably haven't given much thought to the similar process that occurs in your central heating system. You probably havemore interesting things to think about!

Lime scale consists of Calcium Carbonate (calcite) with smaller amounts of other calcium salts such as the Sulphate. As the deposits stick to the internal parts of the boiler and heating system it reduces efficiency, causes kettling noise and increases the stress on the working parts such as the heat exchanger. And again, over time, this is where boiler failures come from.

So what are the solutions?

In a word - filters. Magnetic and limescale inhibitors and filters can remove the offending substances before they enter the central heating system. Multi-trade can provide advice on the right filters to install. Of course, we install them too. And because we aren't tied to any of the manufacturers, you can be certain that you're getting impartial advice. The ideal time to install your filter is when you are fitting a new boiler and central heating system.

An interesting statistic...

The Government has also carried out tests on magnetic water filters. They came to the conclusion that they increase the efficiency of heating systems by an average of 12%. On an average annual fuel bill (900-1600) that is an annual saving of between 108-216. As a magnetic filter costs around 200 to install and fit, you'll see a return on your investment in just one year. Older systems have shown an even higher increase in efficiency.
