Plumbing and heating tips for the warmer months…
With summer just around the corner, it can be easy to forget about your heating system as it will most likely be unused for a short time. However, summer is an essential time to make sure you are prepared for the coming winter. These are a few simple steps you can take to make sure you are ahead of the game with your heating system this winter!
Throughout the summer period you may feel like the washing is endless! This can put extra pressure on your washing machine, so it’s important to give it a break and check it for any damages. It is advised that you replace the rubber hose every 3 to 5 years and inspect it annually to ensure it is fully functioning.
Run Your Central Heating System
You may assume that because the weather is heating up outside that you won’t need to run your heating system until the temperatures drop again, this is where you would be wrong! It is still important to turn your heating on for short bursts to prevent the internal workings from seizing up.
Gas Safety Check
July or August may seem too early to have your annual service but this is a great time to do it as you won’t need to wait long for an appointment with an engineer. This will give you peace of mind that by the time winter rolls around, you can avoid any emergency repair!
