Winter Care 

During the Winter it is important to think about how you can prevent any issues and save money on your energy bills

Below are some helpful things to think about:

Burst pipes

  • Last winter many customers experienced issues with burst pipes due to the freeze, its important to know how to turn your water off in these situations.  Do you know where your stop cock is?  If you had to turn your power off do you know where your isolate switch is?  If your answer is no to these questions, it would be a good idea to locate these now rather than during an emergency.


  • Many people struggle with a build up of condensation within their homes, left untreated this can develop into a longer term problems causing mould to grow.
  • Ventilation is the key factor to prevent condensation, opening windows even in the winter will help reduce the moisture build up in your home.  This is particularly important if you are drying clothes within your home.
  • If you have extractor fans in your bathroom/kitchens, its important to use these, if you don't have one ensure you open windows where possible to let the air in.
  • If you are able to, buying and using a dehumidifiers or disposable dehumidifier boxes that can sit on your windows will help with the build up of moisture.  Wiping down your windows of condensation using towels will also help prevent longer term issues.
