With the weather having turned cooler over the last few weeks, most people are starting to ‘fire up’ their boilers to take the chill off in the evenings. As a result, I’m getting more and more calls from customers booking in for their annual service and boiler check to help make sure their gas appliances remain safe and in working order ahead of the cold winter months.
With spring undoubtedly just around the corner, it makes me consider what we can be doing to help ensure our heating systems stay in good shape as we embark on the coming year.
Anyone that has a gas boiler or appliance in their home should be vigilant when it comes to gas safety. Carbon monoxide poisoning can be deadly, and it's easy to mistake the signs and symptoms for other ailments like flu, viral infections or food poisoning. So make sure you know what to look out for.
The nights have drawn in and winter is well and truly here - and I don't know about anyone else, but it's at about this time that I really start to think about just how much it's going to cost to keep my home and family through the winter months.
With that in mind I thought it would be a good time to share a few tips that could help you keep the chill off, and the bills down, by ensuring you're getting the most from your heating system.
