Tackling Your Heating Problems – The Benefits Of A Power Flush

Regardless of how often you use your heating system, black sludge will develop over time. This will diminish the functionality of the system and keep your energy costs up and your heating output down.
Power Flushing isn’t something that needs to be performed weekly. One power flush can provide your heating system with the protection it needs to work at peak efficiency for up to five or six years. Plus, thanks to the quick and cost-effective services that we provide here at Power Flush Wizard, power flushing doesn’t need to cost you dearly.

Tackling Your Heating Problems – The Benefits Of A Power Flush

Here are some of the benefits of a power flush, and why it’s worth every penny.

Amazing fuel efficiency

When black sludge develops in your heating system, you might find that your system doesn’t warm up rooms as quickly as it should. It might not even achieve the temperature that you’ve selected on the thermostat.

Despite this, the same amount of energy is still going to be used generating that heat, so you’ll be getting terrible performance at an inflated price.

A power flush removes the sludge and returns your system to peak heating output so that the room heats up at the correct speed and achieves the temperature that has been set for it. Tackling Your Heating Problems – The Benefits Of A Power Flush

Cures cold spots

The same black sludge can also affect your radiators. While the radiator will still be heating up, there may be certain areas of it that are completely unaffected by your system.

These cold areas can make it harder to dry clothes in the winter and affect how long it takes for your home to heat up. Once a power flush has removed the sludge, the heating system will provide heat to every inch of the radiator.

Increases heating system and boiler lifespan

Giving your heating system a regular clean can extend the lifespan of both your heating system and the boiler.

Power flushes clear away limescale, sludge and other grime within your system to keep it working at its best for longer, meaning that you won’t have to pay a fortune to have anything replaced.

A power flush can also stop any unsettling noises coming from your boiler. Here at Power Flush Wizard, we even offer various other products to extend the lifespan of your system, such as corrosion inhibitors and MagnaClean filters.

Reptiles of the Galapagos Islands

Reptiles of the Galapagos Islands

For avid nature lovers, a small group wildlife cruise in Galapagos affords a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to encounter a wide range of unique animals, including a host of fascinating reptiles.
The local habitat is extremely favourable for reptiles and the original arrivals were more than likely washed up on the shores attached to driftwood or vegetation that came from mainland South America. Because they can subsist on very little water, many more of them would have survived the journey than their mammal compatriots. Over the ensuing millennia, they evolved to adapt to their habitat in many ways – so much so that they are virtually unrecognisable from their ancient ancestors.

 

The Giant Tortoise

Needing little introduction, Giant Tortoises are probably the most sought-after sighting for visitors on a wildlife cruise in Galapagos. While they have no natural predators and were free to live extended lives and evolve to their massive proportions, at one stage human intervention (from pirates and whalers) decimated their numbers. Today, however, they can be observed in their natural habitat (predominantly in the cool, lush highlands of Santa Cruz), and also in the breeding stations on Santa Cruz, Isabela and San Cristobal. True to their name they can grow to weigh up to 250kg.

The Marine Iguana

These remarkably adapted animals are the only sea-going lizard in the world. Their ability to dive for food to depths of 15m sets them apart as a unique endemic species. They’re able to regulate their own body temperature and are quite often seen sunning themselves on the rocky shoreline in order to bring their temperature back to normal after oceanic dives. They can be found throughout the coastal habitat of the archipelago and, like the majority of the wildlife here, are not concerned by the presence of humans.

The Land Iguana

Land Iguanas are larger than their marine counterparts and are not seen as prolifically. They tend to be quite solitary in nature and prefer to forage alone for their food source (vegetation) in a grassy scrubland habitat. Their preferred delicacy is spiky cactus plants, which the hardened, coarse skin around their mouth allows them to devour, spines and all. A new Pink Iguana has recently been discovered on the volcanic slopes of Isabela, although due to the nature of their very small population it’s not possible for visitors to see them.

The Lava Lizard

Lava Lizards can be seen scurrying around everywhere, seemingly always in a hurry to be somewhere else. They subsist on a diet of small insects and grow anywhere up to 30cm in length. The seven endemic sub-species of the lizard all have unique adapted characteristics, depending on where they’re found. Experienced naturalists can tell at a glance from which island they come.

Reptiles Unique to the Region

Some of the other reptiles that might be seen are any of the nine species of geckos and the four sub-species of small, harmless snakes. Most of the reptiles of the region are now considered endemic, which means that those who explore these fascinating islands on a wildlife cruise in Galapagos will see animals that cannot be found anywhere else on the planet.
