What are the signs radiator sludge?
If you’re finding cold patches on your radiator when your heating is on, then it could potentially be sludge blocking the hot water correctly flowing through your home. If your boiler is making unusual noises or your home is taken much longer than normal to heat up. This could be sludge preventing a good circulation of hot water around your central heating system. This can often be mistaken as a faulty boiler and some people can hit the panic button!
It’s something which is relatively common in most homes, so is nothing to worry about but will need attention. Left alone, a sludge build up could have longer term implications, putting unnecessary pressure on the boiler, heat pump and valves.
