Magnetic filter is a vital component of any heating system

It is often overlooked or forgotten about when it comes to annual maintenance. However, having a magnetic filter installed on your heating system and ensuring it is cleaned each year can save you money in the long run and prolong the life of your heating system.

What exactly is a magnetic filter and why is it important to have one in your heating system?

A magnetic filter is a device that is designed to remove magnetic and non-magnetic debris from the water in your heating system. This debris can be anything from rust particles to limescale, and if left unchecked, it can cause blockages, reduce the efficiency of your system, and even lead to costly repairs.

By installing a magnetic filter, you are essentially adding an extra layer of protection to your heating system. The filter works by trapping debris as it flows through the system, preventing it from causing any damage. This not only helps to ensure that your system runs smoothly and efficiently, but it also extends the lifespan of your boiler and other components.

However, simply having a magnetic filter installed is not enough – it is also crucial to ensure that it is cleaned regularly. Ideally once a year when you have your boiler serviced.

Over time, magnetic filters become clogged with debris, reducing its effectiveness and potentially causing problems within your system. That is why it is advisable to have the filter cleaned annually by a qualified engineer.

Regular maintenance of your magnetic filter can help to prevent issues such as reduced heat output, increased energy bills, and even a complete breakdown of your heating system. By investing in a magnetic filter and taking the time to clean it each year, you can enjoy a more efficient and reliable heating system, as well as peace of mind knowing that your system is well-protected.
