How to Stay Cosy During the Holiday Season

At Energycore we are always ready to help our customers out in times of trouble. But to help you avoid being without heating for the upcoming holiday season here are some helpful tips you can carry out yourself.

  1. The obvious – make sure you have enough heating oil in your tank, you really don’t want to be running out of fuel over the holidays and heating fuel companies will be very busy.
  2. Make sure your pipe work is insulated, especially outdoor pipe work. Even better, arrange to have external pipes re-routed internally.
  3. Have your boiler serviced. Whether you use oil or gas do not wait until mid-winter to have the boiler serviced. You will be left with a vulnerable heating system just when you need it most.
  4. Bleed your radiators. Tell-tale signs that they need bleeding are that they are taking too long to heat up, or they are colder at the top than they are at the bottom. This is because of a build-up of air in the system and can be easily be remedied. If you have any other worries about your heating system give Energycore a call and we will answer any questions you may have.

Have a warm and happy Christmas and a comfortable New Year!
