prepare

winter

Keep the winter’s cold out!
AFTER an extended summer, the weath-
er seems to be on the turn and as we
head deeper into October it is time to
ask whether your home is winter ready.
The glorious early autumn weather
may have allowed us a reprieve from
heating and keeping warm but now is
the perfect chance to carry out home
health MOT.
After all, prevention is always better,
and in the case of household disas-
ters, cheaper than a cure.
So grab a notebook and pen and
give your house a full check-up.
Begin at the roof.
Check for loose and broken tiles,
damaged felt and any sagging of the
beams. While you’re up there check
the chimney for any structural dam-
age or bird nests.
If you are solid fuel users, now is the
time to get chimneys swept.
Check your gutters and down pipes
for any cracks, blockages, moss and
debris. A professional clean can be
reasonable and a very good invest-
ment for a leak and damp-free winter.
Windows and doors get a check
over next as you search for any
draughts or damage. To combat
draughts, invest in new draught ex-
cluders, a better fitting letterbox and
perhaps new and heavy curtains for
both doors and windows.
Pipes should also be checked to en-
sure they are in good working order.
Get your boiler serviced and heat-
ing systems checked to ensure they
are running as efficiently as possible.
Bleed radiators to ensure they are
running smoothly and take meter
readings now and regularly through-
out the season to keep on top of fuel
usage.
Top up solid fuel and oil supplies
now, this could save you cash as win-
ter progresses and will ensure you
not left in the cold.
Don’t forget the garden and
grounds. Check walls and fences for
damage and ensure garages, sheds
and outbuildings are in good order.
Take advantage of dry days to
sweep, rake and clear garden debris
and treat and cover furniture to pro-
tect against the elements.

Ensure your roof is well insu-
lated and look into the benefits of
having cavity walls insulated too.
A little outlay here could see
you make long-term savings that
will make a difference to house-
hold costs.
Finally, make sure you are do-
ing all you can in the home to
save energy and money.
Keep unnecessary appliances
switched off and unplugged,
switch off lights and use energy
saving bulbs.
Wash clothes at a lower tem-
perature and turn your heating
down a few degrees.
Use only as much water as you
need, whether boiling the kettle,
turning off taps when cleaning
your teeth or washing, or using a
washing-up bowl for dishes.
