Cold Weather Warning Message – Dec ‘18

Below are some tips to help tenants during cold weather.

  • Ensure that you have adequate heating. If there is a problem with your heating contact us on 051- 840200 or 01-8087700
  • If there is a delay in repairing the problem seek an interim solution for example temporary heaters.
  • Wear extra layers of clothing at home.
  • Ensure that you have the proper facilities to cook hot meals and enough space to store food including a fridge/freezer or fridge and freezer.
  • Ensure you have adequate provisions for a couple of days and have regular hot drinks and meals.
  • Make sure you have running hot and cold water and that pipes are properly protected against frost.
  • If there are problems with the water do not leave tap open as this can cause flooding when water supply returns.
  • Check in with elderly/vulnerable neighbours living in private rented accommodation to ensure that they are ok.
  • Where there is ice/snow ensure that pathways etc. are clear.
  • Do not make any unnecessary journeys.
