Ongoing blizzards and cold weather seen in the North of the UK is set to head South according to weather experts, with potential travel disruption and loss of boiler use a realistic potential for many.

The demand for a temporary boiler on an emergency call out in the coming days could be set for an increase if weather patterns, where some locations have seen up to four inches of snow, head South and grind the UK’s capital to a halt.

The Met Office has issued a yellow ‘be aware’ warning for many parts of the country as cold and icy conditions take their grip on the country.

Travel Disruptions

Travel disruptions throughout times of bad weather are not uncommon and often hit news headlines on a daily basis. However, ongoing boiler problems – where loss of heating to homes is incurred as a result of boiler breakdown – is covered far less by mainstream media.

Temporary boilers in these situations can offer a huge benefit to the vulnerable should loss of heating occur at the coldest times of the year. This includes those living with housing associations and schools where students may still be in attendance.

What’s more, the heavy snowfall saw Manchester airport shut for a number of hours with flights cancelled and diverted at late notice.

For hotels this could mean a loss of business on a small scale, but a boiler breakdown could mean compensation and the loss of even more business. In this situation, emergency boiler hire can have a benefit, restoring a hotel to working order and keeping guests happy.
