Servicing, repairs, filters and power flushes
Over time, your central heating system water accumulates harmful dirt and debris, such as rust, solder fragments, and limescale, shed by older boilers and radiators -
A system filter is a specifically designed unit which aims to remove and filter magnetic and non-
Condensing boilers are precisely engineered and designed to run with a clean-
We can install a system filter, two of which are Adey’s Magnaclean and Worcester’s own Greenstar Filter. Both have been specifically designed to help combat the damaging effects of system debris and pollutants by capturing these contaminants before they can reach your boiler. They use very powerful magnet-

Maintaining your system...
Annual boiler servicing is an important part of boiler and heating system maintenance to make sure it is running safely and efficiently.
We make the following checks and clearly document them during your service:
Step 1 -
We will use protective sheeting and show covers to protect your home during the service.
Step 2 -
The annual service will then be started with a visual check to make sure that the boiler, associated pipework and flue are installed and positioned correctly, both internally and externally. The general operation of the boiler is then observed and a check for correct ventilation is also carried out if required.
Step 3 -
We will remove the boiler casing to take a look at its components. We will then check that the boiler is working safely and efficiently. Our service will include checking:
We will also clean inside the boiler where necessary and inspect the water and gas pipe work to make sure everything is working correctly.
Step 4 -
We will carry out a number of safety checks in accordance with the latest gas regulations to provide you with extra peace of mind.
Step 5 -
We will tell you if the boiler does not meet any relevant building and gas safety regulations. We will then explain any repairs or maintenance work that needs to be done and that ensure all relevant parts used are genuine parts. Most boiler services last around half to three-
As time goes on, the need for power flushing comes from a build-
Sludge or calcium build up in a heating system means there could be an underlining problem that’s allowing air to get into the central heating system, causing radiators and heat exchangers to corrode. This leaves rust and debris in the bottom of radiators which corrodes down into oxide sludge. This then leads to blocked waterways in radiators, pipe work and heat exchangers. Blockages slow down the transfer of heat which causes pipe, valve and heating control server damage. It will, in some cases, lead to boiler replacement. Be aware that changing your boiler without power flushing your heating system first could lead to you needing another boiler in the near future! This also applies to the controls which may have also been replaced on the system -
CR Baines Plumbing and Heating use professional powerflushing equipment, depending on the particular system you have. The complete process takes around 2.5 to 3.5 hours, depending on the type and state of your heating system.

Thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs)
Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRV’s) enable you to control the individual temperature of each room in your home, and can be adjusted to the comfort levels you want. The higher the number selected on the TRV, the hotter the radiator and warmer the room. We do not recommend fitting a TRV on a radiator in the same room as a room thermostat, as it is important to always have a free-
