Autumn safety

This time of year is the perfect opportunity to prepare yourself for the winter. Follow the steps below to make sure you and your family remain safe:

  • If you use an open fire, now is a good time of year to get your chimney swept in time for the winter. The winter is the busiest time of year for chimney sweeps. Beat the rush by getting yours done in the Autumn.
  • If you use an electric blanket, think about getting it checked during the autumn. Sometimes damage can be caused to wiring while they are folded up over the summer so it's important you make sure yours is checked before you use it.
  • Take steps to ensure you are prepared for heating your home during the winter months. Taking steps to improve energy efficiency in your home will mean you are less reliant on electric heaters.
