Summer is probably the best and most convenient time of the year to change your radiators! This might not seem obvious at first but let me explain -

Humid nights in the summer let you keep warm free of charge right? so not many of us are even thinking about how do we keep warm. Winters generally pretty cold and we start thinking about all the important changes we could amke to keep the house warmer. Heating engineers diaries are filling up around this time too! Winter is the busiest time of the year for plumbers and heating engineers. They're fitting new boilers, new radiators, fixing breakdowns and frozen pipe work too! Below, I list a couple of reasons at why you might want to make all those important heating changes a priority before the cold nights come!

Summer is a great time to take advantage of the quieter period and you'll be able to grab an appointment that suits your schedule too! Planning ahead and getting new radiators and boilers in the summer will give you plenty of time to pick and choose the perfect style, brand and design that will suit you and your house. Plus, imagine you done this during winter you could be doing a couple of days without a boiler. Boiler replacements can take between 1 and 3 days to complete and even longer if there are broken pipes to fix too.

Also don't wait till your boilers on its last legs to replace it, you will just run into more problems this way too. Lets say your boiler breaks down in the middle of winter. You're going to need it fixed quickly, so this means you will probably have to phone an emergency plumber which will cost a lot more money than if you schedule. Even just having your boiler serviced in the summer can reduce the chance of an inconvenient and very annoying breakdown!

Investing in a new boiler and radiators can save you a fortune too. Radiators made before 2000 are extremely inefficient and hold up to 25% more water. A new A rated boiler matched with some new radiators could see your gas bill down by nearly £300!

so what you waiting for? go make an appointment!
