A few tips to keep your heating on this winter

Service your heating and boiler before Winter  

It is worth getting your boiler and central heating serviced before winter comes to your door. This will rectify all leaks and common boiler faults. If your heating hasn’t been serviced for a long time it will not work efficiently, leaving you shivering. We offer annual boiler servicing in Hertfordshire and beyond.

Set your boiler heating mode a bit higher


When the temperature and weather outside turn for the worse, adjust your boiler settings to your needs. This means turning up your boiler thermostat a little higher.

Bleed your radiators

Bleeding radiators is a simple thing to do for anyone who would like to improve their central heating efficiency during the winter. Removing of air from your rads will improve water circulation in the system, which means a warmer home and lower cost of energy bills.

Power flushing


If your central heating is old and has become inefficient over time then get your local heating engineer to power flush it. Only flushing the system with chemicals and using a strong pump will sort out clogged pipes and radiators. They will then run smoothly and be more efficient.

Keep your condensate pipe from freezing

Get your gas engineer to check your boiler condensate pipe. To keep the pipe away from cold temperatures, simply put some insulation on it. There are many diferent insulation types on the market these days. Foam pipe insulation should do the job. If you can do a bit of DIY then cut it to size and wrap it around the pipe. This should prevent the pipe from freezing and reduce the risk that your boiler stops working or working incorrectly.

Stay safe!

Carbon monoxide can be difficult to detect. It has no colour, odour or taste. It can be potentialy fatal for you and for your family. Make sure your carbon monoxide detectors are up to date, have batteries and work correctly. If for some reason you don’t have them then you need to buy them. They are inexpensive and easy to install.
