Vented Hot Water Cylinder Repairs And Installation Services

There are two types of Hot Water Cylinder

Vented Hot Water Cylinder

Unvented Hot Water Cylinder

What is a vented hot water cylinder?

In the simplest of terms, a vented hot water cylinder is a pivotal component that delivers hot water to your taps. Basically, in a vented hot water system, the pulling power of gravity is relied upon to process the water from the storage tank in the attic to the cylinder, using a vent pipe.


The water is then heated directly by an electric heating element located in the hot water cylinder. In some cases, the water is also heated indirectly through the solid fuel appliance or central heating boiler, then promptly supplied to the taps or radiators while the excess hot water is stored away.


The water storage tank in the attic is used to allow the air trapped inside to escape. The storage tank also serves as an expansion tank to facilitate the expansion of the hot water during the heating process. It also plays an instrumental role in ensuring that overheat situations are kept well in check and under control.

The benefit of Vented Hot Water Cylinder:


  • It is cheaper to install compare to Unvented
  • It is cheaper to maintain compare to Unvented
  • You will still have hot water even if the Water Mains have problem


Vented Hot Water Cylinder do have disadvantages. The vented cylinder should be installed on the higher place. Water pressure can be less if height is not enough. You should consider looking for an alternative if your house lacks a high place to install the cylinder.

If you have a small house like 2 bedrooms flat/house with 1-2 toilet/bath and only a few members in the house, you could better off use the Combi boiler which is also known as Hot water on demand.
You have to also think of the ongoing cost. There are mainly 2 Types of a known heating system in the UK.


Direct Heating System:


Water is heated by an internal element like an immersion heater to boil the water. Immersion Heater is powered by electricity which is a lot more expensive than gas which means your running cost could be very high.


Indirect Heating System:


The indirect heating system is connected to the external boiler to boil the water. These boilers use gas or solar system to boil the water which is a lot cheaper than the electricity which means your running cost would be more affordable.

So before you buy the Hot Water Cylinder you have to look into these points:

  • How big tank do you need?
  • Do I have enough space?
  • What is my budget?
  • How much does the ongoing maintenance cost?

Guaranteed hot water cylinder repair and installation


When comparing vented and unvented systems, there are more components used in a vented than an unvented system. Regardless of which one is installed, they must both be regularly serviced to ensure optimum performance. The vented system may at some stage also require repair or replacement jobs because of the installation of additional tanks and vents. Therefore, it is imperative for you to find someone capable of taking care of your specific cylinder repair and maintenance needs, and not merely someone who claims to handle any issue at all, from kitchen plumbing to boiler repair! Instead, stick with guaranteed vented hot water cylinder repairs and installation services specialists.


When searching for an expert to take care of your repair and installation requirements, you should lean towards hiring an engineer from a reputed service company that is industry trained and fully qualified to carry out all types of repairs and installations. The service company must also provide a 24-hour emergency call out for cylinder repairs. After all, it is next to impossible to predict when your vented system is going to give up on you. Moreover, when it does stop functioning, the repair expert must be ready to take your call.
