THIS WINTER PROTECTING YOUR FAMILY AND HOME

During the winter and particularly over the festive season when you may be leaving your Service Families Accommodation (or private family home) empty there are a few things to consider:

Prepare – 

Test your heating and report any faults to the MHS helpdesk on 0800 707 6000

(For Bardney Occupants call 0800 027 2057)

Prevent – 

Consider leaving your heating on permanently and turning down to a low setting when out or at night (never below 15°C)

Isolate and empty outside taps

Protect –

If you are going away leave the heating on constant and set the thermostat to a minimum 15°C

Turn all your radiator valves on to full and leave internal doors open

Turn your water off at the stopcock

Patch Mates –

If you are away leave spare keys and contact details with a trusted friend or neighbour and ask them to check the house and report any problems
