Prepare your home for winter…

As Autumn has well and truly settled in and winter is on it’s way, we’ve  come up with some helpful tips to ensure your home, rental property or holiday home are protected from the low temperatures and storms;

  • 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
  • Have the property checked regularly either by you or a responsible adult. Should there be any issues this will help identify them quickly

Winter Check List:

Clean dead leaves and other debris from your gutters to avoid rainwater overflowing onto your roof
Check Roof tiles and slates are secure so you don’t get water damage in the loft/roof space
Check your aerial is properly secured
Remove dead/damaged branches from any trees which could damage your property in stormy weather
Store your garden furniture in a property sealed shed, garage or conservatory
Make sure your front gate is properly locked
Make sure all electrical Christmas decorations/Halloween decorations have tight connections. Don’t forget to unplug them when there’s no one at home
Never leave candles lit in an empty room
Double check your smoke alarm is working
