Plumbing and heating tips

2019-06-12

British summer might not be all you would expect. 

For a few months every year, you can generally get away with worrying about your heating expenses.

You might not need your heating now, but this does not mean you shouldn't prepare for the coming Autumn.

Summer is the right time to make sure your central heating system is working correctly. When its cold you need to use the central heating to keep warm.

Emergency callouts and breakdowns can be costly, so you should prepare and make sure it all works smoothly.

Central heating servicing is essential. A faulty system can be not only dangerous but also costly. A correctly working system can save you money on your heating bills in the long-term.

Having your heating system checked now has its benefits. Summer is the perfect time as you don't need the heating on as often as you would in the colder times of the year, such as winter.

Some checks you can do yourself include:

  • Check exposed pipes for water leaks or damage
  • Ensure they are properly insulated
  • Checking for damaged or loose connections in your pipe work

Checking for broken or loose pipework is an essential task as these can lead to costly and time-consuming leaks in the future.

Planning is essential when it comes to plumbing and heating. Problems which do occur can be devastatingly expensive and inconvenient, so putting the work in now will certainly save you money.

If you think your plumbing or heating equipment is due to repairs or service, it is always advisable to get it done in the summer. You will need it in the colder seasons.
