<p>Why install a magnetic filter when installing a new condensing boiler?</p> <p>It is a mandatory and sensible requirement to power flush (<a title="Roy's blog article on heating system power flushing" href="http://www.thebestof.co.uk/local/hinckley/blog/power-flushing-a-central-heating-system-why/article014120.htm" target="_blank"><span style="COLOR: #ff6600"><strong>see my blog article on power flushing 30 Nov 09</strong></span></a>) your heating system before a new boiler is installed. If any plumbers says it’s not then take care, your warranty will be at risk! However, after the boiler has been installed it can also be very beneficial to fit a magnetic filter in the heating circuit.</p> <p>The reasons for installing a magnetic filter in this way are two fold. Firstly, the filter will pick up any iron oxide sludge deposits not removed by the power flushing and thus prolong the life of the boiler and associated controls, pump and zone valves. Removing the iron oxide sludge deposits will mean that the efficiency of the boiler will be maintained and this in turn will prevent fuel wastage.</p> <p>The use of a magnetic filter doesn’t remove the need to use a corrosion inhibitor in the system but when they are used in conjunction they both help to prevent the reaction between the dissimilar metals in the heating system which causes corrosion to start.</p> <p>Having invested a considerable sum of money on a new boiler the additional cost of a magnetic filter is minimal and well worth the expense to protect your investment and ensure that you achieve a long and reliable service from it.</p> <p>If you would like to know more about the use, cost and choice of magnetic filters then do of course contact me at <strong>Roy Lee Plumbing & Heating - 01455 268 676</strong>.</p> <p>Alternatively, <a title="Roy Lee Plumbing & Heating feature on the bestof Hinckley " href="http://www.thebestof.co.uk/local/hinckley/business-guide/feature/roy-lee-plumbing-heating/73570" target="_blank"><span style="COLOR: #ff6600"><strong>CLICK here to use the link from our bestof feature to email</strong></span></a> any queries that you may have.</p> <p>Look out for more helpful plumbing, heating and gas installation hints and tips from Roy Lee in future blog articles.
