Are Magnetic Filters Worth It?

All Guides   /   Are Magnetic Filters Worth It?

Many of our customers ask us what magnetic filters are and if it’s worth having one installed in their homes. As the name suggests, these clever devices filter out any magnetic substances that build up over time, which if given the chance would cause rust and corrosion within the system.

We specialise in Fernox and Adey filters, which are some of the very best on the market. There are a few options to choose from, all of which remove debris and sludge so that your boiler and central heating system will deliver multiple benefits, which are listed below.

High efficiency

When a central heating system is free of magnetic contaminants, it’s able to do its job much more easily. A clear system means that the boiler doesn’t have to work as hard and can deliver hot water and heating quickly and effectively. In turn, it uses less energy and keeps your carbon footprint low, which is great for the environment and your home’s energy rating.

Lower your bills

Due to a magnetic filter helping your central heating system and boiler to work faster and more comfortably, the reduced energy usage also has a positive effect on your utility bills. The engineers here at ProTech boilers are passionate about helping homeowners and landlords to keep their bills low through everything from annual services to smart controls, and a magnetic filter plays a key role in stopping bills from becoming unnecessarily high.

Prolong your boiler’s life

The more you do to look after your boiler, the more it will give back in return. Good examples are never allowing the temperature to dip low enough for frost to form in the pipes during winter, and turning on the heating for half an hour in the summertime so that the system isn’t inactive for too long.

Meanwhile, annual servicing to nip problems in the bud and booking a power flush if required also keep the boiler healthy. Needless to say, by investing in a magnetic filter, you’ll help to prolong the life of your boiler and central heating system for even longer.

Prevent damage

Whilst we’re always available to carry out boiler repairs, we’re sure that you’ll want these to be as infrequent as possible. Magnetic filters are designed to remove all of the nasty stuff from the system, benefiting the boiler, radiators and other systems you may have such as underfloor heating. The result is a healthy heating system throughout your home, greatly reducing the likelihood of major problems arising both now and in the future.
