Unvented Cylinder Installation in Storrington

There are many different types of heating system out there, from conventional options to those built around modern combi-boilers.  Another popular option involves the installation of an unvented hot water cylinder, which is part of a pressurised system which is fed directly from your cold mains water feed. This subsequently delivers hot water at mains pressure, which can significantly improve the performance of your bath and shower. We’ll cover this in further detail below, whilst asking why Pipeline Plumbing Services should manage your installation. 

 Unvented Cylinder Systems – What You Need to Know 

Unlike conventional heating systems, an unvented cylinder doesn’t require a cold-water storage tank to be installed in your home. This makes it a viable option for those who live in smaller and new-build properties, particularly if you’d rather not install a brand-new combi-boiler. With this type of cylinder, the water can be either heated directly via an immersion heater or through your central heating system. Similarly, unvented cylinder systems are compatible with solar thermal technology and similarly renewable energy sources, which is ideal in the modern age. 

To function properly, an unvented hot water cylinder relies on an expansion vessel, which must be fitted to allow for the augmentation of your water supply as it heats.  From a safety perspective, an unvented cylinder comes with some all-important safety mechanisms, including twin thermostats for greater control and pressure relief valves. 

Before the Installation – How do Unvented Cylinders Work? 

As we’ve already said, unvented cylinders work as pressurised systems that draw water directly from your cold-water feed.  This means that they require an adequate mains pressure and suitable flow rate, whilst your system pressure should typically sit within the 2.0 bar region. A pressure reducing valve should also be used on all unvented cylinders, in order to limit the pressure of the incoming mains water and keep this to a safe level.  This type of safety feature enables unvented cylinders to work reliably and efficiently at all times, so long as you employ the services of a qualified G3 engineer to oversee the installation process.
