Unvented Hot Water Cylinder Installation

We Provide Unvented Hot Water Installations & Replacements In Leominster

How unvented hot water cylinders can potentially perform is what makes them a sort-after system for consumers. They can perform exceptionally well, providing hot water at a good pressure to multiple hot draw-off points at the same time if installed right.

However, there are many poorly designed and installed systems throughout Leominster and the areas around, which are preventing these types of hot water systems from working to their full potential, or even poorly in some instances.

With a well installed unvented hot water system, the user should be able to run two or three typical showers at the same time without an impact on performance. By utilising more cylinders, equipment and advanced design methods, there are no real limits to what can be achieved so long as there is sufficient space to install the equipment and adequate budgets to pay for the work.

Even with poor flow and low pressure, it is possible to make these systems perform well. Although, the more barriers there are, the higher the costs and the more complicated the system will me. Accumulators, pumps, banks of cylinders and other equipment can be brought in to increase the performance of the system.

So Why Use Us?

  • We certify all of our work
  • We provide plumbers regisered with the CIPHE
  • We are WaterSafe approved
  • We are always honest, friendly and professional

It’s important that unvented hot water systems are installed correctly and by competent people. Potentially the equipment can be very dangerous when installed incorrectly.

The water inside unvented equipment can potentially boil and rapidly expand into steam Due to the rate of expansion from water to steam, should this occur there is a risk that a steam gas explosion could take place. With all the correct safety measures installed, there are far too many layers of protection to allow this to happen. However, when these measures become bypassed with poor installation, it is possible for these cylinders to explode or discharge high-pressure and high-temperature steam/water into an unsafe location.  It is vital that you use the right installer to avoid a situation like this!

“It is an absolute disgrace the number of unvented hot water cylinders I have witnessed first-hand that present a potential danger to the occupants within the properties I have attended. There are a lot of tradesmen out in the marketplace who should not be working with unvented systems.”

Frequently Asked Questions

No, these systems are only dangerous when installed incorrectly.

These systems can be complicated. They use a lot more equipment than some other methods. However, they are generally very reliable with a little maintenance.

To keep up warranties and avoid faults from a lack of servicing, yes.

A Brief Explanation Of How Unvented Hot Water Cylinders Work

Cold water from the mains supply is used to fill the cylinder and provide it with pressure. Where flow or pressure is low due to service issues, other equipment, such as accumulators and pumps can be used to boost performance.

A heat source, such as a boiler will heat the water in the cylinder indirectly, or if by an immersion heater directly. This heated water is stored within the cylinder until a draw point such as a tap is opened.

When a draw point is opened, hot water leaves the top of the cylinder and goes to the outlet. At the same time, cold mains water comes back into the cylinder to keep it full.
