Baxi Heating’s technical director Andy Green

The COVID-lockdown building hokey cokey

As England heads into a winter lockdown, Baxi Heating’s technical director Andy Green offers pointers on protecting unoccupied buildings and their heating systems in the colder months...

Heating engineers and facility management providers will therefore need to adapt the maintenance schedule accordingly to ensure that the heating and hot water system operates efficiently and – crucially – safely once the premises is reactivated.
