If you’re a home owner, your plumber, builder or hot water and heating specialist will be able to advise you on the best hot water solution for your home or building, depending on a range of factors, from the age and size of the building to the budget you’re working with. So what’s the difference between a vented cylinder and an unvented cylinder when it comes to heating your water? A traditional vented cylinder requires connection to a water tank, usually in a loft or attic space, using gravity to deliver hot water to the home. This is done by use of an immersion or by an external source like a central heating boiler. An unvented cylinder uses a pressurised system, that has a direct feed from your cold water supply, so there is no need for a cold water storage tank in the loft or attic.
If you’re an experienced plumber or installer, you’ll already know that unvented cylinders have a high flow rate, which customers want, are energy efficient and a come with a long guarantee. You’ll probably also know that JouleUK are leading the way by offering a complete range of ERP rated cylinders, suited to your order requirements.
Unvented cylinders are increasingly the chosen option in homes and larger buildings. There are a lot of good reasons to go with an unvented cylinder. Here are just some of them:
They can be installed in lots of different areas of the home, giving more freedom in designing the space.
Unvented cylinders usually take up less space than older systems.
They use water directly from the mains, so need for a tank in the attic. This isn’t just good for saving space – it can also take away the possibility of freezing issues in winter.
Because they use mains pressure, they can provide a much more even flow for baths and showers.
Once installed, unvented cylinders can give you real savings in terms of energy efficiency; good for the environment and your pocket.
Because of a sealed system, there isn’t the risk of water contamination, of real concern to SMEs and families alike.
