Get your pipes insulated

Did you know that during the winter, the condensate pipe can freeze? When this happens, it could lead your boiler to stop working. You can prevent this by insulating the pipes and keeping the heating to a low temperature. 

Bleed the radiators

Bleeding your radiators will help release any trapped air, however only do this if you have found signs of cold spots across your radiators. This will help your radiators heat up evenly and efficiently.

Carry out final tests before the winter

Testing your boiler to check if it is running properly before winter sets in is a great idea. Not only will this help you check your heating system is running safely and effectively, but it will also help save money. This is because regularly maintaining your boiler during the summer will help ensure your boiler is ready for the winter, giving you peace of mind.
