As the seasons change and shelves full of pumpkins give way to advent calendars and other festive treats, thoughts often turn to ensuring that the home is ready for winter. From routine tasks such as getting the boiler serviced so that central heating works during the cold spells and taking care of any wear and tear throughout the property to minimise any risk of damage from inclement weather, there are a number of seasonally appropriate jobs that need to be done to prepare for the harshest months.
A well-serviced boiler should last the winter months and early diagnosis of any faults can help to prevent issues from developing and becoming far costlier. Similarly, a quick check in the loft can shed light on how effective the insulation is at keeping the home warm. Checking for cracks under any doors and ensuring that windows seal tightly can help save on heating bills and keep the home energy efficient.
Whether you are looking at maintaining your own home, or intending to protect your stake in any investment properties, the list of winter jobs can vary due to the size, type and age of the property, so much so that it is wise to get the professionals in to ensure that you have not overlooked anything important.
