The Importance of a Central Heating Inhibitor

Our customers are always asking if they should try adding a central heating inhibitor to their heating system and our answer is a simple, resounding Yes!

Why pay for heating system maintenance when the simple addition of a central heating inhibitor into your boiler system can save hundreds?

Let’s crack through the confusion with this simple guide by your friendly experts at Only Radiators.

So What is a Central Heating Inhibitor?

Basically, a central heating inhibitor is a liquid made up of various chemicals that are nasty to our skin but are very kind to our central heating systems.

And Why are they so Important?

Central heating treatment has always been important, but it is becoming an even bigger necessity as the construction of expensive heat exchangers in aluminium becomes more of an industry standard!

The metal piping of your system is constantly reacting with the water running through it and needs treatment to avoid excess rust, sludge, scale and other nastiness clogging up your central heating system.

Think of using a central heating inhibitor on your pipes as using a toothbrush, with built-in floss and whitener on your teeth. A total overhaul, keeping your system running for longer, performing better and warming your family all winter.

What if I don’t do it?

We don’t like horror stories but that’s what will happen if your heating system is neglected.

It will fall apart, stop working and behave erratically, and you just know it’d choose to do it right in the depths of a record-breaking winter! So don’t risk it – brrr! So, now we know it’s vital stuff – what’s the best inhibitor for central heating systems?

Only the Best will do!

Inhibiting your Central Heating System

The best time to do this is when your system is empty.

It is always best to administer your central heating inhibitor via a radiator. This should always be done from a low point in the property (such as a radiator downstairs).

Simply add your radiator inhibitor to the radiator using a funnel to avoid spillage.

Then refill your system with fresh water through the system’s expansion tank.

Upon next use, the fresh water will spread your central heating inhibitor evenly throughout your heating system.

You want to learn how this is done? Here’s a handy video from a very informative but rather eccentric character.
