With all this talk of a possible white Christmas and the cold spell well and truly on its way we have come up with some helpful tips to ensure your home, rental property or holiday home are protected from the low temperatures;

  • Make sure your pipes are properly insulated
  • Outside pipes should be fitted with insulating sleeves if exposed
  • Leave the underside of tanks free from insulation to ensure rising heat can reach them
