Keep Warm this Winter

It's getting cold in Canterbury! The sun has well and truly gone, and I feel like we’re now hurtling towards the winter months far too quickly for my liking. I’m already seeing adverts everywhere for Christmas parties and presents and related paraphernalia. I am looking forward to the return of the Christmas market at Whitefriars, though, despite the cold.

A few years ago, our boiler broke at Christmas time and we all had to double up our duvets and still froze. So to save any would-be little match girls this winter, here are some people who will keep your house lovely and warm:

Coombs (Canterbury), who specialise in gas boilers, cookers, fires, pipework and water heating;

Fireplace Warehouse in Roper Road;

Canterbury Plumbing & Heating;

 

And Canterbury Plumbers, who specialize in high-efficiency boilers.

 

Useful sites to look at when locating an accredited workman are www.gassaferegister.co.uk and www.fmb.org.uk .

 

There are also some handy tips on keeping warm in the winter at http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/winterhealth/Pages/Verycoldweather.aspx and http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/HomeAndCommunity/InYourHome/KeepingSafeAtHome/DG_10027755, proving that it’s not just me who worries about people getting ill in the cold weather! It’s best to prepare in advance, so make sure your pipes are in good condition and your double glazing’s up to scratch.

    Great tips - it's tempting when the sun is shining like today to put off all these chores to get our homes in good shape for the winter, but your piece has definitely inspired me to get cracking! Thanks.
