Easylet advise that should tenants plan to be away at any time during the winter period, heating should be left on timed mode. For those properties with Gas Central Heating (GCH), timers should be set to turn on for an hour or two in the morning and again in the evening. If the weather is forecast to be very cold, then these hours should be extended. In the event that the pipes do freeze no action can be taken until they defrost. Tenants must avoid using any affected areas as water will back-up and may flood.
During this period, please consider the importance of ventilation to prevent any condensation or mould build up. The opening of windows, use of trickle vents and adequately heating the home will minimise the risk of deterioration to the property.
