Checking The Radiators

If your radiators are suffering from trapped air it can make your home feel colder. Keeping on top of the condition of your radiators is also part of the different ways to keep your central heating in good condition. Making sure there aren't no cold spots on your radiators is a good thing to check for regularly; however if this is noticeable, it could mean that your radiators need bleeding.

Pipe Lagging

When the colder temperatures come, pipes can freeze up. Which means that it can cause the central heating to stop working properly; even more so, possibly the need for replacing burst pipes. Lagging the pipes can potentially give your pipes more protection for years to come and is a great option for keeping your central heating in good condition.
