Water cylinders may need to be replaced for a number of reasons. Often it’s because there is a fault that has resulted in them leaking, or they are older, less energy efficient, or do not meet the new insulation standards.
Sussex Boiler Replacements can help you with the installation of new hot water cylinders – whether they are vented or unvented. Alternatively, there may be maintenance and repair options that can be a viable option to a full replacement. For example, but adding extra lagging you can maximise the efficiency of your current hot water cylinder.
At Sussex Boiler Replacements we are more than happy to discuss all of the options available to you, to help determine the most cost-effective and energy-efficient solution,
The most commonly found type of hot water cylinder in the UK is a standard vented hot water cylinder. These copper tanks are supplied with cold water from a main tank – usually located in the loft – which is then heated and forced around your property by gravity.
As well these more standard gravity-fed hot water cylinders, Sussex Boiler Replacements also specialise in the installation of unvented hot water cylinders.
Unvented hot water cylinders operate at greater pressure levels and therefore require additional safety features. They can only be installed by boiler specialists holding advanced qualifications, which we hold here at Sussex Boiler Replacements.
Both water cylinder systems come with their own advantages and disadvantages. We are more than happy to discuss these with you to help you determine which type is the best solution for your budget and individual requirements, or we can simply source your chosen system, or help you install or maintain the one that you already have.
