This winter tip for landlords and tenants was shared with me by my cousin, David Alexander of Alexander Plumbing and Heating Services based in the Wirral.
Potential problem: When we have very cold spell and you have heating on in your property remember that if you have installed new loft insulation any tanks in the loft might freeze due to lack of heating escaping into loft.
Tip: open and leave loft hatch open by 1/2″ and this will let a small amount of heat into loft preventing tanks from freezing. Once the temperature rises again outside you can then shut the loft hatch fully.
Feel free to share this via Twitter, Facebook etc. and tell your tenants, it could save you a lot of grief this winter 🙂
