In typical households, they can work great. Installation challenges within properties can place barriers in the way of installing an unvented cylinder, thus making other options more viable from a cost point of view. However, when these systems are installed correctly, they perform exceptionally well and can be designed to produce hot water at high efficiencies.
In reality, there are a lot of unvented hot water systems that do not perform to their full potential, or even very poorly due to poor installation and design.
It is also possible for unvented systems to be installed in a way that can be very dangerous. Sadly, there are large numbers that are installed throught the country and in areas such as Tenbury Wells that have been installed so poorly that are a danger to the people living in the home.
Unvented hot water cylinders can discharge high-temperature steam and water under certain fault conditions. Common installation defects could prevent this water/steam from exiting the building and cause harm to people. It is even possible for these cylinders to explode under certain installation conditions. Neither of these dangers present a threat when installed correctly, but is vital that homeowners use highly skilled and competent engineers to install unvented equipment for this reason.

Frequently Asked Questions
They are only dangerous when installed by people who are not competent.
They require a lot of equipment, adequate space and provisions to ensure the proper water supply and safe discharge. In some properties, these barriers to installation can cause installation costs to increase quickly.
Yes, they do. Admittedly, not too much in most cases, and they often go many years without any, but there are serviceable aspects to them.
How Unvented Hot Water Cylinders Work
They utilise cold mains water to directly fill the cylinder and provide water to hot outlets at mains pressure. To improve their performance, accumulators and pumps can be installed to increase available flow and pressure. In most cases, they work entirely well without additional measures.
Mains water comes into the cylinder at the bottom and keeps the cylinder full and under pressure. A heat source, such a boiler, will heat the cylinder. When a hot outlet is operated, heated water leaves the top of the tank to go to the required outlet(s), typically at mains pressure.
