Vented and Unvented hot water cylinders – Hot water cylinders are a crucial element when it comes to delivering hot water to your home. They are designed to keep the water hot as it is being stored, so it is ready when you need it. There are two main types of hot water cylinder to choose from; vented and unvented. Each type has its own characteristics and benefits.
Benefits of a Vented Cylinder – The benefits of using a vented hot water cylinder in your home include being less complex to install and less costly to install and maintain. This indirect heating method is more economical overall, which is the only real option for many homeowners who are on a strict budget. We install, maintain and replace traditional vented cylinders, fed from cold water storage tanks that are normally located in your loft space. We are able to carry out all work on these cylinders, and can supply new cylinders at competitive prices.
Gas – When you need a new gas boiler, it is always best seek professional advice from a reputable and knowledgeable installer. This is why Sandhurst Plumbing only employ highly qualified and experienced Gas Safe registered engineers to ensure the correct boiler is fitted in your property. All installations fully comply with current regulations and MI’s. We also register your installation with Gas Safe as well as the warranty on your behalf. As an approved installer of Vaillant, we install boilers to a high standard that will give homeowners SEDBUK A-rated performance in efficiency. Any new Vaillant boiler installation comes with a manufacturer’s warranty period of seven years, giving you peace of mind.
All gas boiler manufacturers strongly recommend that your boiler is serviced one a year by a qualified engineer to ensure continued and safe operation. Our cost to carry out an annual boiler service is £100 + VAT.
Benefits of an Unvented Cylinder – With an unvented cylinder, hot water is provided at mains pressure, so the flow is better and more dependable. Less space is used at the property because there is no need for a cold water storage tank. The fact that mains pressure is being used and not just means that you can position the cylinder almost anywhere and it will still work effectively. These unvented cylinders are more costly than their vented cousins, but the great water pressure is worth it for most people.
Whichever system you decide upon, ensure you bring in a reputable, experienced and fully qualified engineer to install the cylinder for you. Corrections and repairs after a poor quality installation can be costly, and poorly installed unvented cylinder can potentially prove more dangerous than a gas explosion, so leave the hard work to the professionals.
