Vented and Unvented Hot Water Cylinder Services in Derby, UK
Water heaters are another necessity of life and like many other necessities, there are some pros and cons to consider as you think about which one best fits your needs. Two popular types of water heaters are gas or electric, so it is important to know the advantages and disadvantages of each before making a purchase because it can save you a lot of future trouble in the process.
Difference Between Vented and Unvented
Not all cylinders are the same. There are vented and unvented cylinders and they work slightly differently but each serves its own purpose. A vented cylinder incorporates a vented pipe which makes it correspond with the present atmospheric pressure. The mainstream water is delivered to a cold water storage tank, where it’s stored until it’s needed by an appliance in the house. Unvented cylinders function directly from the main water supply, although they’re still on the principle of gravity feed, unlike vented systems. This gives unvented cylinders a better flow than their counterparts.
Benefits of a Vented Cylinder
The benefit of venting hot water to the outside of your house is it is less expensive to maintain and install, and even easier to install. Although this venting method requires you to have a hand pump at times, it makes for an excellent option for homeowners that are on a limited budget as it is more economical and can also be used with solar heating systems as well. We provide maintenance, repairs, and installation services for both gas and electric indirect hot water cylinders on a range of makes including Worcester, Bosch, Vaillant, etc.
Benefits of an Unvented Cylinder
When you go for an installation of an unvented cylinder, then you enjoy a number of benefits. First, you have access to high-pressure water that isn’t affected by gravitational forces. So people who go with the unvented model don’t need to worry about the tank getting filled up or emptied. In fact, when bought at storage specialists in Coventry, it would be installed on any surface without necessarily requiring fixing.
This makes it very space-efficient and portable as compared to a vented version which needs a lot of space from your bathroom and is usually fixed to your wall. Although such models may prove slightly expensive in comparison, they come with many hygienic advantages not provided in the latter one.
