What are the most important boiler checks before winter?

With the colder temperatures comes an increased reliance on the central heating and hot water. As such, it is essential that your boiler is in full working order before the cold weather arrives. So what maintenance and checks should you carry out prior to the winter? Well, there are several, including:

  • Check the thermostats- a broken thermostat will not send the right signal to the boiler, which usually results in cold rooms. To prevent this, make sure you check your thermostats are working, and have these fixed in time for the winter weather.
  • Boiler service- servicing your boiler in the early autumn period, if you haven’t already done so this year, can be a good idea. This will ensure that your boiler is working efficiently and performing to a high standard in time for the increased usage. This will also provide the perfect opportunity to have any issues repaired and any parts replaced, before there is increased demand in the winter.
  • Bleed the radiators- bleeding the radiators to allow smooth transfer of heat is an essential part of radiator maintenance. This can help keep your home warm in the winter, but it can also ensure that your boiler is working as efficiently as possible, so you can reduce your energy bills. As such, this is a great way to prepare for winter.
