How to Keep your Home Warm this Winter
Although there’s nothing you can do to stop it getting cold outside, you can make sure your home keeps warm this winter. Here at Woods Building Maintenance, our heating experts have put together tips to help keep your home warm and cosy this Winter.
5 Tips to Keep your Home Warm this Winter
The heating experts at Woods Building Maintenance have put together our top 5 tips to keep your home warm this winter:
- Book an Annual Boiler Service – People often overlook the importance of having an annual boiler service and don’t get it checked regularly. Booking your boiler in for an annual service is vital to ensure your boiler will keep your home warm, comfortable and provides you with hot water. For more information on the importance of a boiler service read our 5 reasons to book an annual boiler service.
- Set a Timer for your Central Heating – Programme your boiler to turn on the heating a little earlier than normal to heat your home. For example, 30 minutes before you get up in the morning and before you get home from work.
- Block Draughts – Cold air coming into your house through gaps around your windows, door, electrical outlets, light fixtures and gaps in corners can cause your home to lose heat. Blocking draughts inside your home will help to keep the cold out this Winter.
- Insulate your Home – Properly insulating your home will help to prevent heat from escaping. A cold draught can cause your home to lose heat. If you insulate your home, it will significantly reduce heat loss and also lower your heating bills.
- Upgrade to an Energy Efficient Boiler – If you’ve got an old, inefficient and unreliable boiler then, upgrading to a new ‘A’ rated energy efficient boiler you can rely on will keep your home toasty this winter. Not only will a new boiler heat your home, but it will also bring you substantial savings on your heating bill.
