Keeping down your energy bills

Fit a system thermostat
Make sure your heating system has a thermostat – giving you more control of your heating system, and increasing its efficiency by up to 25%.

Fit radiator thermostats
Fitting a thermostat to each radiator will give you control of the temperature in each room, so you’re not heating empty room unnecessarily.

Turn it down a notch
Turning down your thermostatic radiators by just one notch can reduce your gas consumption by up to 9p per day. It all mounts up!

Power flush your system
Regular cleaning or power flushing of your heating system can improve your radiator outputs and system efficiency by up to 20%.

Service your boiler yearly
Regularly servicing your boiler will keep it running smoothly and efficiently, especially if it’s more than 25 years old as it’s likely to be only 50% efficient (compared a modern one which should be 90%) – having a dramatic effect on your gas consumption.

Ten minutes a week in the summer
Here’s our Super Tip – once a week throughout the summer, run your heating system for ten minutes – and reduce your heating breakdowns by up to 50%!

We hope you find these tips from Middletons useful. They tell us they are currently offering eight year parts and labour warranties on all new boilers.

Fantastic new property details ready for action

Our newly-designed property details not only look good, they contain some mould-breaking new features too:

NEW editorial descriptions

Goodbye to descriptions which are loved by agents and loathed by buyers! Instead, meet Sam Horscraft, our brilliant new copywriter who's here to create a wonderful 'editorial' for your property, giving buyers and tenants a feel for what your property is really like.

NEW additional information

Our new property details also have a list of the things people really want to know about a property – like the distance to schools, what the parking is like, how far the parks are and plenty more.

NEW 'bear in mind' section

Buyers and tenants hate it when agents gloss over a property’s obvious shortcomings. With our new details, we’ll be upfront about a property being, say, on a busy road, and even try to offer a positive aspect, that it might offer more space for the money; for example. If the busy road is still a problem, well, it saves a wasted viewing. Meanwhile buyers appreciate our honesty, and are more trusting of our advice when they do eventually find the property they want – with all parties happier all round.

Great photographs

If you’ve been house-hunting, you’ll know that photos are really important, which is why we make sure we take the time to get the shots that will make your property stand out in property listings, and look really good in print and online. We even hire a professional photographer if needed to give your property sale that extra boost.

A floorplan with every property

The only way to truly understand the flow, size and shape of a property is with a floorplan, now included on every set of property details. Alongside our great photography, buyers get a true feel for your property – especially families who can see how their lives will fit in to that space.

If you'd like to know more about our terrific new marketing of your property, please get in touch and we'd be delighted to show you more.
