Time to check your heating!

As the season begins to change and the nights begin to draw in, now is a good time to see if your heating is in good working order before the colder weather arrives. 

By testing your heating now, you can identify any problems with your heating early, allowing our property maintenance team time to respond. If you need to report any faults you can do this by either visiting our website www.lacehousing.org or by calling 01522 514444 Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 1.00pm

Do you know how your heating system functions? It’s a good idea to get clued up on the basic instructions for your boiler to ensure you can stay warm throughout the cold weather. Keeping the heating on at a low constant temperature, rather than heating your home up rapidly and then allowing it to cool down again, will avoid any build-up of condensation, ensure your boiler is more energy efficient and could save you money!

Make sure your radiators or heaters are not obstructed by any pieces of furniture or curtains so the heat can flow evenly around your home.

In the unfortunate event that your heating stops working, we will always endeavor to respond as quickly as possible. However, please be aware that we may not be able to respond immediately or that the supply of parts can take longer. Therefore, it is a good idea to have a small electric heater to use as a back-up.
