We’re having a rather wet January… paying for those nice sunny days over Christmas in Cyprus!… On a positive note, if it’s raining in Paphos – then it’s very likely we’ll have snow in the Troodos and the Ski – Club on Mount Olympus will soon be open!

A few points to note with the heavy rains;

  • Watch your pool, they can and do regularly overflow if not checked regularly… If too much water soaks in behind the pool liner you could have spongy patches behind the liner, where the only way to get rid of this is empty the pool and loosen the drain at the bottom, to allow the water to seem out… Then re-fill…
  • Electrics – Funny things can happen to Cyprus electrics in this weather, the damp air, heavy rains can cause some odd activity… But don’t worry, we’ve had lots of experience and electricians in Paphos and can identify most faults quite quickly and fix virtually anything!
  • Surface water – roof, patios, balconies etc, we’ve said it before a few times, take just 5 minutes to check they are clear and water is running free, or else it could be costly!

Hope everyone has a trouble free winter and those without central heating are keeping warm enough. However, should you have any problems, faults, leaks or worries, please give us a call and we’ll do our best to help. Should you be out of Cyprus, live abroad or own a holiday home in Paphos – we’re happy to make a visit, general check around and report back before carrying out any required works (should there even be any), remember – a small call-out fee now might be far better than a major repair or expense later.

All the best, Nick

Warm enough?

Winter in Cyprus… it’s really not that bad – compared to the UK with their scattering of snow!

However, for those who’ve acclimatised to the Mediterranean climate and rely on central heating for the few winter months in Cyprus, you’ll be warm & toasty at the moment. It is advisable to have your heating system checked and serviced annually, a general safety check and service will ensure your heating is working the most efficiently, has no leaks or risk of health issues.

Boilers (like your car) will last longer if regularly checked… and will cost less to run if serviced regularly…
If you are considering installing central heating in Paphos, then give us a call for a free, no obligation quote – it can be installed to virtually any property, with or without provisions. We are quick & tidy with all our work and will do our best to schedule the work to suit you.
