Winter is almost upon us, but are you prepared? Fear not, we’ve got you covered with top tips for preparing your home to help you stay cosy all winter long...
As the months turn colder, we strongly advise our customers who manage their own ordering to check their tank levels and place fuel orders early, most especially in the run up to Christmas. While we will be making deliveries throughout the festive period, it is an exceptionally busy time of year and sometimes made worse by impassable roads due to snow and ice, so it pays to plan ahead. For full peace of mind you should place your order when your tank level reaches 40% and if you don’t know how to read your tank gauge, watch below to see how...
Keep heat in and cold air out this winter with quick and easy ways, like dressing your doors with draught excluders and lined curtains. For a longer term investment, it could be worth considering new double glazed windows with heat reflective glass and it may sound obvious, but draw your curtains as soon as it gets dark - it makes a big difference, making your home extra cosy and warm.
Regularly bleeding radiators to remove trapped air can significantly improve how efficiently your heating system runs, more importantly just how quickly it will heat up your home.
If you’d prefer not to be in charge of your own ordering, we offer a free top-up service for our customers. It costs nothing to register for this service but will give you full peace of mind as we take all the hassle away from you, estimating when your tank will be low of gas and we simply turn up and fill up...to register just call us on 0800 574 574.
Boilers work particularly hard during the winter months so show yours some TLC...getting it serviced along with any other gas appliances in your home prior to the winter months will make sure it is running as efficiently as possible.
