Another great way to prepare for winter is to ensure your home is as cosy as it can possibly be. From investing in woolly blankets to setting your heating to come on before you wake up each morning, the warmer your house is the better.
If you’re looking for ways to keep your house warm this winter, here are a couple of places to start:

- Keep your windows and doors shut where possible

– Ensure Your Boiler Is In Great Working Condition
Finally, you need to ensure your boiler is in good working condition. Although you may have had it serviced within the last year, it is always worth having another check-up just before the cold weather arrives. There is nothing worse than having an issue come up during winter and as it is a busy period for electricians, chances are you won’t get it fixed right away.
