Protect Your Boiler This Winter
With the UK often suffering from sub-zero temperatures each winter, here's some simple advice to ensure you get the most from your heating system throughout the colder months.
1. Check the pressure
The pressure gauge can be found on the front of your boiler. The pressure should be between 1 to 1.5 bar to work at its most efficient.
2. Bleed your radiators
Cold spots are an indication that there is air in your system. This prevents your radiators from heating your home efficiently.
3. Insulate your pipes
Pipe lagging is an inexpensive way to prevent your pipes from bursting. This can be purchased from most DIY shops and added to the pipework very easily.
4. Keep your heating on a low temperature throughout the night
This has been recommended by Halifax insurance to help prevent pipes from freezing throughout winter.
5. Check your condensate pipe to make sure it isn’t frozen
