Keep reading for our top tips!
Prevent pipes from freezing!
Ensuring that your pipes are insulated is essential for preparing for the winter season! When water freezes it expands which goes on to increase pressure throughout your whole plumbing system. If your pipes burst this can then cause flooding. Having insulated water pipes will save you money as it will prevent heat loss and damage that can be caused by burst water pipes.
Clear your gutters!
If your gutters are blocked it can prevent water drainage. Any water i.e., rain and melted ice that is left in the drainpipe, if it is prevented from being able to flow away easily, this leftover water can leak into your home and cause water damage. Before the temperatures drop, it is a clever idea to clear any debris from your gutters, ensuring that they are clear. Also be sure to invest in installing a gutter guard from Aussie Gutter Protection as this will act as a barrier to keep affecting your home away from any clogged and other problems. They are specifically designed to protect your gutters from becoming blocked by debris such as leaves and twigs, which can then lead to rain water pooling on your roof. This can then, in turn, lead to water leaking through into your property and, at worse, can even lead to major structural damage.
Having your heating serviced!
The worst thing to happen over the winter months is for your heating system to break down. It is important to have your heating serviced properly by a professional at least once a year. Do not try to do this yourself however, it should only be done by a professional and experienced technician.

A car breakdown is horrible no matter what time of year it is. However, they are ten times worse in the winter. To avoid your car from breaking down in freezing temperatures, check your car’s manual to see if you are due for a service and ensure that you make this appointment before the first freeze. The most important things to get checked for the winter are battery, cables, brakes, tires, and spark plugs.
