You may not think about your central heating system too often, but you'll certainly notice if it goes wrong.
To help keep it in good shape, try to get your boiler serviced in the summer to ensure that it's working efficiently before the winter comes.
During the summer too, put the heating on for 15 minutes once a month. This will show the system is working properly and should help clear any debris from the boiler pump.
You can buy carbon monoxide alarms to alert you to the danger of carbon monoxide poisoning.
And if you've got a gas boiler, it's very important to get it serviced regularly by a competent person in order to minimise the risk.
Our gas boiler cover including a service is only provided by Gas Safe registered engineers.
