The weather is cooling and the nights are drawing in, meaning it’s only a few weeks before we all start reaching for the thermostat and turning our heating back on.
Unfortunately, after months with our thermostats turned right down, it’s inevitable that for some homeowners, turning their boilers back on will lead to them discovering problems just when they need their heating the most.
October and November are among the busiest months in the calendar for plumbers and heating engineers as you deal with these emergency call outs, often resulting in long hours as you try to get to as many people as possible. While there isn’t much you can do to prevent the late-night call from a customer whose boiler won’t turn on, there are things that homeowners can do to help keep their underfloor heating in tip-top condition, minimising the risk that they might need to make that urgent call.
We’ve written the text below so that you can copy, paste and send it out to your regular customers to remind them that it’s time to give their heating a quick once over. It might be just the thing that makes sure their underfloor heating works perfectly right through the winter – and they’ll definitely appreciate the reminder.
