Although it is warm in many parts of the UK still, if you are away this Christmas or over New Year, then it really is advisable to leave your heating on at a very low level all day, say between 5-10 C. This keeps the water that’s running through your pipes warm enough to stop it freezing and you ending up with a potentially expensive and damaging burst pipe should the temperature suddenly take a dive.
