Outdoor Lights, are they on?
It doesn’t take long for afternoons and evenings to get much darker during winter, so making sure any outside lights are in good working order is a really important job. It’s a good idea to make sure you have a sturdy snow shovel too, which will help you clear a path for your path or driveway in case we see any winter storms.
Secure Loose Roof Tiles
If your loft is all ready for the winter cold, you still need to think about the state of your roof. General wear and tear, as well as slipped roof tiles, can lead to unsightly leaks and potentially cause structural damage to your home. If you’ve noticed any issues or have put off having repairs done, it’s definitely best to get this job done before the worst of the winter weather arrives.
Find Your Winter Jumpers!
Although we’ll all find ourselves having to reach for the thermostat at some point this winter, it’s always worth remembering to unpack your cosiest jumpers ready for the coldest days of the year. It’s a simple tip but it could save you more money than you think, turning your room thermostat down by one degree can save £60 a year.
Draught-Proof Your Household
The last thing you want during winter is the cold weather managing to creep inside. Draught-proofing your windows and doors will not only keep the chill out but it could also save you up to £20 in energy a year too. It’s a simple and effective way to keep your house warm and will cost around £200 if you find an expert to do the work for you.
