Unvented Cylinder

Advantages

There are many advantages to installing an unvented cylinder in your home or business. These include balanced pressures at hot and cold taps for showers, and higher water pressures available at the hot taps. They also eliminate the risk of contamination as there is no storage cistern. Hot water storage cylinders can be sited anywhere in the house and are very suitable for one storey dwellings such as flats and bungalows. Unvented cylinders are quicker to install, there’s no cold storage tanks in the loft, and a lot less pipework. Small diameter pipework may possibly be used depending on the individual circumstances. Finally it gives architects and service designers greater flexibility of design.

Disadvantages

There are also some disadvantages to consider such as a lack of back-up stored water should the main water be shut down for any reason. Also, if the mains water pressure is low, then all water outlets throughout the property are affected. There is the possible need for long runs of safe discharge pipe with high temperature capacity. There’s also the need for higher level of maintenance compared with conventional systems. There could be possible noise problems due to velocity in small pipes.
