At first, it may not seem obvious to you but summer is actually the most convenient and best time of year to make those important changes that need to be made to your home’s heating system.
We will be taking a look at the reasons why you may want to make the important heating changes a top priority long before those cold winter nights start creeping back in. From humid nights, where you can keep warm, to totally free heating engineers wanting to fill their diaries up and have the work coming in before winter hits.
Engineers Have Tonnes of Free Time
As would be expected, the busiest time of the year for heating and plumbing engineers is winter. Not only are they fitting new radiators and boilers but they also have to deal with frozen pipework and breakdowns as well.
That makes summer the ideal time for taking complete advantage of the quieter time to get an appointment that suits your schedule – just be sure you don’t tell everyone you know or it will ruin it for all of us!
You Can Choose Exactly What You Want to Have
If you are unlucky enough for your boiler to break down during the winter, you will need to find a replacement one as soon as you can. No one wants to have to sit around in the freezing cold for any longer than they really need to.
However, by planning in advance and getting your boilers and radiators installed during the summer you will have plenty of time for choosing the best design, brand and style that will suit your home and you. That means you will be able to concentrate on getting everything right for when the nights get longer and ideal for getting cosy with your loved ones!
You Will Not Freeze to Death
It is a no-brainer. If you are without radiators, hot water and a boiler during the winter it will definitely be a complete nightmare for you and your family. It takes 1 to 3 days to complete most boiler replacements and if broken pipes also need to be replaced it can take even longer.
It does make a lot of sense to take full advantage of those warm summer days for getting things done, so you should stay warm and not have to face the same disruptions to your daily life that you would be suffering in the dark depths of the cold winter.
You Will Reduce Your Risk of Having a Winter Breakdown
Why should you wait to replace your boiler until it is on its last legs? A breakdown during the middle of the winter probably will mean that you need to call an emergency plumber. That will cost you a lot more money than if you get an appointment scheduled during the summer.
When you make changes during the summer or just get your boiler serviced, it will reduce the chances of you having a frustrating and inconvenient breakdown during the winter and also save you some money during the process also.
Plan Ahead and Save Money
There is a good chance that the very thought of having high heating bills could send cold chills down your spine. However, if you make changes well ahead of time, then it can really help you save on your outgoings and money.
You can save tonnes of money by having energy efficient radiators and boilers installed. An A-rated brand new central heating radiator, combined with energy efficient high-quality designer rads may help to reduce the amount of your energy consumption by as much as a third and maybe your gas bill will also go down this year by as much as £300!
What are you waiting around for? Just having your system serviced is really an excellent idea and can save you tonnes of money over the long run. So don’t wait until something does go wrong.
