Vented Hot Water Cylinder Installation

Is It Time To Replace Your Old Vented Cylinder, Or Are You Looking To Install A New One In Eveshame or Pershore?

If your traditional/vented hot water cylinder in Pershore or Evesham is on the blink, or if you have a property you would like to install this type of system into, you have found the right people to help!

Unvented hot water systems can perform exceptionally well in all sizes of homes, but they need careful design and installation to function correctly and efficiently.

In reality, many ‘plumbers’ or ‘heating engineers’ will fail to deliver a system that works to specification. If you value your time and money, then you will appreciate our company, as we solve problems and deliver results with total professionalism!

We offer guarantees of up to 5-years on the equipment we install as part of central heating installations we undertake (terms & conditions apply).

“I prefer hot water storage systems, such as vented cylinders, compared to combi boilers in most properties, they have many more benefits so long there is space to install one. Their biggest drawback in a typical property is shower pressure and the space required to install one, but with careful design and the use of pumps where needed, these systems can perform great!”

What We Offer:

  • We are punctual and provide accurate time-slots
  • Excellent value for money
  • High-quality workmanship
  • Exceptional customer service

For cylinder replacements and new installations, we provide free fully written quotations and arrange arrival times and dates with the customer in advance of the work taking place.


Vented/Traditional Cylinder Information

Conventional hot water cylinders (vented) use gravity to supply hot outlets with water. There is an option to pump these types of systems to increase pressure and flow depending on the needs of the property.

The good thing about vented hot water cylinders is so long as they are installed correctly, with sound system design, they can service multiple hot water outlets simultaneously. In a medium to large sized property or a smaller property that has non-typical hot water needs, these types of systems are better choices than combi boilers.

The only drawback of conventional hot water cylinders is the general lack of pressure. Again, this can be improved significantly by using pumps, but sometimes this is not possible or prefered depending on the property and the user.

Vented Hot Water Systems Can Perform Without Flaw!

Some people feel that vented hot water cylinders are a more traditional way of providing hot water that they are somehow inferior to other options; this is not the case. However, they do need space and to be installed in a certain way to get the best out of these types of hot water systems.

The height of the cold water storage tank that feeds into a vented cylinder dictates the pressure available at the outlet. Where showers are installed in such a way that the shower head is just below the storage tank, flow at the shower can be limited, especially if there is poor plumbing system design. This is what often leads to these types of systems getting a bad reputation, but this comes down to low-quality plumbing system installation/design. There are numerous poorly installed traditional/vented hot water cylinders in Evesham & Pershore.

One thing that is often not discussed is the ability to achieve high efficiencies in hot water production with systems like this. Fitting a condensing boiler to this type of cylinder is not enough to ensure efficient hot water production, but with careful design, gas or LPG central heating system can produce hot water and heating at high efficiencies, thus saving fuel costs compared to less efficient hot water production options, such as combi boilers.

These systems can be incredibly robust, often lasting many years. As the components they use are well in supply by various manufacturers, they can be much cheaper to maintain than many other hot water system types.

Frequently Asked Questions

Without loft space, the only option would be a Fortic cylinder. These systems are restricted in their performance, and therefore as a result typically only used when other options are not practically possible.

With careful design and the right sized cylinder, a pump can be used to provide a high-performance power shower.

They generally need at least a cupboard and space in the attic/loft, but there are options, such as Fortic cylinders, as already mentioned, for different types of properties.
