Why summertime is a great time to get your home ready for winter
We wouldn’t blame you for thinking that the best time to get your house ready for winter is in, well, wintertime. But why wait? You should start researching and preparing ways to keep your house warmer during the summertime so that, when it first starts to get cold, you can start benefiting immediately.
As well as the above, it’s important to keep in mind that the summer weather in the UK is always unpredictable, which is another valid reason why you should get a head start in winter-proofing your home… Yes, unfortunately, there’s absolutely no guarantee that you won’t need your boiler in July.
As experts in making your house warmer and your energy bills lower, it’s strongly advised you listen to us. We know what we’re talking about. Let’s look at some more reasons why summertime is a great time to get your home ready for winter:
Avoid the stress
You won’t be dreading winter as much if you know that your home is ready to handle it. For example, if your boiler has been showing some tell-tale signs of age and damage for quite some time now, why would you risk it breaking down on a dark, cold October night?
Jump to the front of a queue and get your boiler replaced before you truly depend on it. You know it makes sense.
Lower energy bills
Although our summer weather is unpredictable, it is true that we do tend to use our boiler less when this season is in play. Naturally, we spend less money on heating because our boilers aren’t in demand as much as they are when the weather is colder.
This means you could have more financial room to splash out on other energy saving home improvement projects, as well as your boiler upgrade, such as insulation. For example, if you’re wondering “where are the best external wall installers near me?”, you’ve found them in Thrift Energy.
Less demand and more time
Because it’s summertime and nobody else is nearly half as prepared as you are (wink), engineers will more than likely have more availability to fix or replace your boiler. There’s nothing worse than having to request time off from work because your energy company is too busy and can only see you one a specific day at a specific time – and you’re desperate for their help!
If you start preparing in summertime, you’ll have so much more freedom.
Time for research
We’re not suggesting that preparing in the summertime means jumping straight in with a full boiler replacement from the first company you find. Instead, why not use this time to research and find the best company for your requirements?
Thrift Energy is one of the UK’s leading installers of effective energy measures and we’re committed to ensuring that our customers have the best possible experience. So, we’re confident that we’re the best company for your requirements.
