Preparing you home for the winter
Today I was joined by Simon Bennett, Repairs & Estates Manager here at Orwell. We chatted about the importance of checking your boiler, extractor fans and trickle air vents at some point over the summer, so that you are ready for the winter. If you feel that you need further assistance or guidance when making these checks, please gent in touch with us using the link below.
Kind words from Orwell Customer, Val
"Just want to thank Ross for the Orwell News videos, they are great! Always makes me smile. Also the app, yes Ross it is good to be able to contact out of office hours when the phone lines are closed. Bless you all, well done! Val"
