What you need to know about unvented cylinders...

When compared to traditional heating systems, unvented cylinders do not require you to install a cold-water storage tank in your home, perfect for those living in smaller sized homes and are looking to save space. Unvented cylinders heat water in two different ways, this includes directly with an immersion heater or indirectly through your central heating system. They also work great with solar technology, making it ideal if you are looking to reduce your carbon footprint. 

An expansion tank needs to be installed to help expand the water supply as it heats. This is highly recommended so your unvented hot water cylinder functions effectively. An unvented cylinder is equipped with a number of vital safety features, including dual thermostats for enhanced control and pressure release valves.

How do unvented cylinders work?

As mentioned above, unvented cylinders are a pressurised system that pulls water directly from your cold water supply.   This implies they need a sufficient mains pressure and an adequate flow rate, whilst having your pressure sitting within the 2.0 bar range.  

On all unvented cylinders, a pressure-lowering valve should be installed to control the pressure of the incoming mains water and keep it at a safe level. This type of safety measure allows unvented cylinders to operate reliably and effectively at all times, as long as the installation is overseen by a trained G3 engineer.

Here at BCU Plumbing, we are Gas Safe registered, which includes being G3 qualified, so you can have peace of mind knowing that you do not need to worry about any installation services we carry out.
