5 Ways to Ensure Your Home is Winter Ready


The days are becoming shorter and darker, which can only mean one thing: winter is fast approaching. To ensure you and your loved ones have a warm and cosy season, you should take steps to prepare your home for the colder months ahead.

If you want to keep a bitter chill at bay and protect your property, read the five ways to ensure your home is winter-ready.


Get Your Boiler Serviced

The last thing you will want is for your boiler to breakdown during the bitterly cold winter months, as you will not have access to heating or hot water. To ensure you and your family are not dithering when winter arrives, you should schedule a boiler service or repair so it will run smoothly throughout the season.

Clear Your Gutters

Many people overlook the importance of clearing their gutters, but they can cause many unwanted problems during winter. Wind and rain can lead to an accumulation of leaves and mud, which can block a gutter and cause an unwanted leak and serious water damage to a property. It is smart to clear your gutters every spring and autumn, which can prevent a build-up of debris, such as old leaves, rubbish, mud, and more.

Underfloor Heating Installation

If you want to feel snug in your home this winter, underfloor heating is a must-have feature. When you invest in underfloor heating installation, you will feel warmth underneath your feet on a cold winter’s morning. It will, therefore, add a touch of luxury to your interior while creating a cosier environment for your nearest and dearest. What is more, it can free your home of radiators, so you will have more space to hang beautiful works of art and greater flexibility when rearranging furniture.

Replace Roof Tiles

If your roof has missing tiles or slates, you must aim to fix the problem before winter arrives. If you do not, you will expose your property to various arduous elements, which will allow heat to escape and can cause your boiler to work harder. Plus, the likes of rain and snow can lead to structural deterioration. Missing tiles and slates are affordable to replace and can be repaired with ease, which can lead to a warmer home.

Lag Your Pipes

No-one wants to experience a frozen or burst pipe during winter. To prevent this from happening, you should consider lagging your pipes, especially if they are made from plastic. Lagging your pipes is an affordable update that can save you money on your energy bills.
