Prepare your home for cold weather

There are lots of simple things you can do to make your home weatherproof:

Repair dripping taps - even a trickle of water can freeze and block your pipes. If you need to fix that leaky tap, you can find a local plumber here.

Find and seal leaks - cold air can leak into your home through small cracks and gaps in windows and doorways. When you seal leaks, your home retains more warm air so you use less energy for heating. That way, you save money and make your home cosy.

Insulate your attic - this is one of the most important things you can do to prepare your home for cold weather. If your attic’s insulation is level with or below the floor joists, you may need to add more. Find out more about insulating your home here

Keep your boiler ticking over

It’s smart to switch on your boiler for a few minutes once a week during warmer months. This may prevent it seizing up when winter arrives. 

Water pressure and your boiler

Keep an eye on your water pressure levels by checking the gauge, which is at the front of most boilers or it could be in your hot press.

If the pressure is too high or low, it can stop your boiler working effectively.
