There are steps, however, that you can take to reduce the chance of needing a plumbing or central heating repair this winter.
1. Frozen pipes
The most common problem people encounter during the festivities is due to plummeting temperatures and a certain visit from a Mr Frost. Check your home for any pipes that may be exposed to the elements and be sure to insulate and protect then. The addition of heat tape can prevent your pipes busting.
2. The Outside Kitchen Sink Wall
When building a house, the sink is often situated under a window so that you can view your garden whilst scrubbing the pots and pans. This again, exposes the internal pipes and drainage systems to the elements making them vulnerable to damage. By opening your cabinet doors you can let warm air flow between the parts, reducing the risk of them freezing or becoming blocked.
3. Boiler Repairs
For any boiler related worries, the sensible option is to call in the experts. By keeping an eye on your water pressure you can see how effectively your boiler is working. By getting regular services, you can prevent your boiler from expensive repairs or replacements through inspection and finding any potential problems.
Whilst some repairs cannot be prevented, by following these helpful tips you can prevent and reduce the chances of getting the winter blues this Christmas. Check out our website to find your nearest Surab plumber.
