Unvented Cylinder Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most common questions we get asked about Unvented Cylinders.

What is an unvented cylinder?

An unvented cylinder is a type of hot water storage system that operates at mains pressure, meaning it doesn’t require a cold water storage tank. Instead, it is connected directly to the mains water supply and heated by an immersion heater or boiler.

What are the benefits of an unvented cylinder?

Unvented cylinders offer several benefits, including improved water pressure and flow, higher hot water output, and no need for a separate cold water tank. They also provide more consistent water temperature and are often more energy-efficient than traditional vented systems.

How is an unvented cylinder installed?

Unvented cylinders must be installed by a qualified and certified professional. The installation involves connecting the cylinder to the mains water supply, installing an expansion vessel to allow for pressure changes, and ensuring proper ventilation and safety measures are in place.

What maintenance is required for an unvented cylinder?

Regular maintenance is essential for the safe and efficient operation of an unvented cylinder. This includes annual safety checks and servicing by a qualified professional, checking and maintaining the pressure relief valve, and flushing the system to prevent the buildup of sediment and debris.

Are there any safety concerns with unvented cylinders?

Unvented cylinders can be safe and reliable when installed and maintained properly. However, there are some safety concerns to be aware of, such as the risk of scalding from hot water, the need for proper ventilation to prevent the buildup of carbon monoxide, and the importance of ensuring the pressure relief valve is working correctly to prevent over-pressurisation.
