Prepare Your Heating and Cooling Systems for Autumn

As the dark nights draw in and summer becomes autumn, now is the time to think about getting your heating systems ready and also your cooling systems shut down to avoid any damage.

Key things that you will need to do:


  • Ensure all systems have had a full service, ensuring key components are checked and replaced if necessary to avoid breakdown in winter months
  • If off-grid, ensure fuel supplies are full – either propane tanks or oil tanks
  • Ensure programmers or time clocks are set up right

Biomass Systems

  • On biomass systems with an external heat dump, ensure the correct the level of antifreeze is installed
  • On water heaters inside factories, ensure coils are clear and stats are set correctly
  • Ensure water side pumps are set up correctly
  • Make sure there are no leaks in the system
  • Have a full service check before winter

Evaporative Coolers

  • Ensure all water-based coolers are drained
  • Ensure coolers are wrapped and winter-proofed
  • Ensure electrics are disconnected to avoid accidental use
