A great way to protect your home this winter is to keep plumbing in mind. We’ve gathered 6 tips for homeowners that could help keep plumbing issues at bay this winter.

1. Water Hose leaves and debris off gutters and roofs

Make sure to regularly check baths, dishwashers, showers and taps have no leakages, specially before winter. Even a few drops of water can cause a build up of rots and dampness in the winter months.

2. Wrap your hot water cylinder for insulation 

Wrapping a cloth around a hot water cylinder can help you prevent heat loss. In fact, the cloth can also help you notice if the cylinder have any unnoticed drips or leakages. Approved insulation is crucial and will help any household from needless water heating wastage.

3. Check your appliances for leaks

Make sure to regularly check baths, dishwashers, showers and taps have no leakages, specially before winter. Even a few drops of water can cause a build up of rots and dampness in the winter months.

4. Closely Inspect Your Household Pipes

It’s highly recommended to check your home’s pipes for leakages. Leakages in pipes can be hard to spot, so it is worth checking them closely. These leaks can cause condensation and excess mould, which may be the result of a number of other factors. If it occurs, It’s best to get in touch with a qualified plumber to help you with the damaged pipes.

5. Get Gas System Maintenance Annually

If you have gas heating systems in your home, get them serviced by a professional plumber once a year, just before the cold weather hits. This will not only keep your gas heating systems running efficiently, but also keep you and family safe. When your gas heaters have not been used for six months, and you recently switch them on, you’re going to get dusty odours around the room. Sometimes children’s toy or objects found in your gas heaters that can also cause the burning smell. So make sure to get gas system maintenance.
