How to Prepare Your Home For Winter

Summer is over and winter is upon us, which means cosy nights in, hot chocolate and festive films. But, there are also some practical things that you need to sort out around your home, to ensure it’s prepared for the changing season. It’s important to protect your home all year round, especially in the autumn and winter where cold weather and low temperatures can take a call on your property. 

So, what can you do? Read on for our top tips.

Get your boiler serviced

Everyone starts to turn their heating back on at different times, but late October is a common time as cold winds and chilly evenings make our homes less comfortable. But, what happens if your boiler is in need of a repair? There’s nothing worse than finding out that your boiler is not working as it should, especially during peak season. To avoid this, it’s a good idea to get your boiler serviced just as summer comes to an end, this will ensure you’re prepared for the colder months and most importantly, you can find an engineer who’s available, as winter is a busy time for appointments.

Clear your gutters

Many people forget about cleaning out their guttering, but you’d be surprised just how much debris can get lodged up there. If you’ve noticed that your gutters are sagging or water is overspilling, then this may suggest that they’re clogged. As autumn approaches, leaves, twigs and debris can get stuck, so it’s important that these are removed. Hire a professional service or tackle it yourself, to make sure your gutters are ready for the rainy and windy weather that’s ahead.
