Winter-proof your Home

November 22, 2017

As a nation, we're obsessed with the weather - any change in the temperature gives us all something to talk about.  And more recently, some dramatic natural weather events have made world-wide news.

Closer to home, we're feeling things turning a little colder and reaching for our winter woolies, so let's take a look at some top tips for keeping your home warm through the cold snap.

Check your pipes!

  • Clear gutters and drains from leaves and debris,
    check the downpipes to ensure water is running freely
  • Inspect your heating pipes and make sure your boiler is           in tip-top condition
  • Bleed the radiators - if they're colder at the top than the bottom, they need the excess air taking out

Keep up your energy

  • Service the boiler - don't want it breaking down on the coldest night of the year
  • Switch energy tariff - avoid paying over the odds to heat your home this winter
  • Pull on your trainers and head out for a brisk walk or even a jog to keep your body fighting fit

  • Insulate your home properly - lofts, doors and windows all let that expensive heat out if they're not looked after.  cover exposed wooden floorboards with a heavy rug.
  • Gorgeous throws and cushions not only make your home look lovely but are great for snuggling under on the sofa while watching TV



Invest in blinds & curtains - proven to be a great way to save money on heating bills, especially if you take on the latest trend of layering products at the window for additional cosiness.
