How to keep your home warm and safe this winter

Video: Reduce your heating bills with 2Red


It’s been the mildest winter on record on our shores so far, but the warm weather we enjoyed at the end of last year is now a bit of a distant memory.

As an intense cold front moves south into Britain from the Arctic, conditions that let daffodils flower at Christmas and allowed squirrels to fatten themselves on easily-accessed acorns are all but over.

Getting ready for the cold means more than just digging out the chunky knitwear and stocking up on anti-freeze; your heating system can be under pressure during really cold weather, so here are a few tips sponsored by local heating company 2Red to help keep your home warm and safe this winter.

Over the years, sludge can form in your system. A power flush will prevent the re-forming of sludge improving the overall efficiency and life of the system.


Safety first

A faulty boiler can not only mean that your home isn’t heated efficiently but if faulty can have consequences to your health. Carbon monoxide leakage from faulty gas appliances can kill so it is important not to put your family members in danger.
