1. Keep your boiler maintained - by having an annual service on your boiler it means any issues there may be will be assessed and fixed.

2. Keep your boiler on low - by keeping your boiler on a low temperature you hopefully avoid any sudden cold weather freezing your pipes.

3. Bleed your radiators - ensure your radiators are working efficiently by releasing any air from them.

4. Get to know your boiler - familiarise yourself with the boiler manual as there will be tips and guidelines on how to get the best from your boiler. If you have misplaced your boiler manual, you can find the electronic versions on the manufacturers website.

5. Frozen condensate pipe - if your boiler is making a gurgling noise, please look at the external pipe, it is likely to be frozen. If you are able to, pour some hot water over the pipe, you will need to do this a few times.
