Central Heating Filters
Signs that you need a heating filter
Magnetic Filters: Are they Worth it?
The last thing you want is for your boiler to run less efficiently or, worse, stop working altogether.
The rust and debris that builds up in your pipes over time can turn these scenarios into a reality.
That doesn’t mean to say you have to just accept that this will happen, far from it. A magnetic filter can be installed which will collect the sludge and dirt before it builds up within your central heating system, so your boiler can continue to run as efficiently as ever
Why Do I Need a Magnetic Filter?
Magnetic filters, or boiler filters, are fitted to your boiler’s pipework, extracting any debris from the water flowing through the pipes so that there isn’t a build-up which can restrict the flow of water.
Fitting a magnetic filter to your boiler could bring many benefits to your home:
More efficient heating system
Lower energy bills
Reduced carbon footprint
Greatly reduced risk of needing expensive repairs
Longer boiler lifetime
Increased length of boiler warranty
What Causes Sludge to Build Up?
As water passes through the metal pipes of your boiler, rust can form. Combine this rust with other dirt and debris, it eventually builds into a mud-like substance, otherwise known as ‘sludge’. If this sludge isn’t removed it can have a real impact on the day-to-day use of your heating system:
In the long term your boiler won’t be running as efficiently which can cause energy bills to rise and, in the worst case scenario, the boiler may need to be replaced.
Excessive noise from the boiler and/or radiators
Radiators struggling to heat up
Cloudy water from the taps
Boiler regularly shutting down.
Can I Add a Magnetic Filter to my Existing Heating System?
Magnetic filters are most commonly added to a boiler during installation, they’re not essential but the installer may recommend having one.
If you’d like to add a magnetic filter to your heating system but aren’t looking to replace your boiler then you can still have one fitted to your existing system. However, depending on where your boiler is installed, it might not be practical. We highly recommend getting a quote from a Gas Safe engineer who will be able to let you know if the work is possible.

If your central heating system is not performing as well as it should be
This will more than likely be because of a build up of sludge in the radiator system and pipework.
This can be rectified with a Chemical Clean and a MagnaClean central heating filter.
