Salient is an excellent design with a fresh approach for the ever-changing Web. Integrated with Gantry 5, it is infinitely customizable, incredibly powerful, and remarkably simple.


My goodness but it has been chilly recently!

Apparently last year’s insurance claims for boiler faults from landlords showed an increase of over 5%. The sub-zero temperatures brought on by the Beast from the East are sure to see this rise again.

I am sure I do not need to tell you that calling out an emergency plumber can be extremely expensive. I have heard of call out fees in these wintery conditions that have been more than double the average call out rate.

So what steps can a landlord take to protect themselves from boiler breakdowns and leaks?

I have no hesitation on recommending a regular annual service of the boiler and heating system in all properties. As it stands, landlords have a legal requirement to obtain a safety certificate for all gas appliances each year. I would suggest that this is the ideal time to ask your engineer to service the boiler and give the heating system a thorough check.

A little extra expense in the short term could save a major financial headache in the long run.

If you need any further advice I am always happy to help – give me a call on 01684 292154.

And don’t forget to wrap up warm!
