Lets spare a moment’s thought for the life led by your central heating pumps system. It spends the summer months with very little to do and then over the winter has to work flat out. No one, other than perhaps Santa Claus, works like this, so it’s hardly surprising that many people find their heating failing at the times when it’s most needed.
Getting Ready for Winter
Rather than wait for things to go wrong, it’s a good idea to use the autumn to make sure your heating system is ready for the winter. You will doubtless have been using your boiler for hot water, but you need to ensure that the heating side of things is working too. Switch the heating on, and check that all of your radiators are getting warm.
This will also allow you to check if any of your radiators have airlocks and need bleeding. Doing this ensures that you get the best performance and that the radiators get evenly hot.
