Hannah Hughes, a British Gas service and repair engineer, told Express.co.uk: “We’ve seen above-average temperatures so far this autumn but that is set to change in the next two weeks.

“Not every boiler will give up after taking the summer off, but even if yours seems fine, it’s a good idea to have it serviced and make sure it’s ready to withstand what’s to come.

“As well as looking after your boiler, making a few small, additional changes around the home will help ensure your heating and hot water system is working at its best.

“Remember, a system that’s in good shape won’t use more energy than it needs – which will also help keep your heating bills down.”
