It Might Still Be Summer, But It's Never Too Early To Start Preparing For Winter

Whether you love it or hate it, winter will soon be here, so it’s never a bad idea to start getting your home ready for the harsh weather conditions.

There are several things you can do to protect your home this winter which will have a huge impact as temperatures start to drop. 

Don’t get caught out by the cold, winterise your home with our top tips. 

Invest in a porch

Investing in a porch for your home will not only give you added storage space but it will also help to keep your hallway more insulated. You’ll be grateful for the additional layer of warmth when winter finally arrives. 

Clear your gutters

As autumn leaves begin to fall they can start to block your drains and gutters which, if left uncleared, can cause water damage in your home. This can be easily avoided by checking your roofline and clearing any blockages.

Update your windows and doors

Harsh weather can take its toll on your windows and doors over the years which means they may not be insulating your home as well as they used to. Replacing your old windows and doors will help to improve your home’s energy efficiency and reduce your energy bills.

Protect your pipes

As temperatures drop below freezing, any exposed pipes are at potential risk of bursting in the cold weather. Apply lagging to any pipes that run along your walls in unheated areas such as garages and basements.  

Install a solid roof

Having a solid tiled roof fitted onto your existing conservatory will not only modernise your living space, but it will also keep the heat indoors, helping to reduce your energy bills and save you money in the long run.

Check your boiler 

Having no central heating over winter is the last thing you want. Checking your boiler is in good working condition will not only spare you the costly expense if it suddenly breaks down, but it will also ensure you avoid the risk of having a freezing cold home and no hot water.
