Understanding the Benefits of Unvented Hot Water Cylinders

21 Jul 2021
Is it time to replace your aging water heater? Perhaps you’re building a new home and comparing your options. Whatever the case, there are many benefits available with unvented hot water cylinders. In this post, we will explore what you should know to make an informed decision.

Mains Pressure at All Taps

Vented hot water cylinders might have a longer history in the UK, but that history is chequered when it comes to performance. Unless you installed it at the very highest level of your home, you could expect to have very little pressure. Even when installed in the attic, though, you probably would not have good water pressure at every tap, which meant major problems for everyday activities like bathing or washing dishes.

With unvented hot water cylinders, the situation is different. You get mains pressure at every tap, from the master bath to the kitchen to the hot water tap for the clothes washer. Plus, you don’t have to install the cylinder in the attic – almost any area with sufficient space will work and you never have to worry about a loss in pressure.

Good Flow and Pressure in the Shower

Sick and tired of poor water pressure in the shower? Does it feel like you need to turn round and round just to get the soap and shampoo off? You can say goodbye to that problem with an unvented hot water cylinder. You get great flow and full pressure from every shower in the home no matter how far away from the hot water cylinder the bathroom might be.

With older-style water heaters, pressure dropped the further from the cylinder the shower was located. If the shower was on an upper floor, the pressure was also poor. With today’s unvented cylinders, those problems no longer exist.

Well-Insulated and Efficient

How much money do you spend heating and reheating water in your old water cylinder? If yours is more than a decade or so old, chances are good that you spend a lot. The good news about today’s unvented water cylinders is that they are generally well-insulated and very efficient.

That means they maintain internal temperatures for longer periods, turn on less often, and cost you less over the life of the cylinder itself. Of course, it’s not just about spending less money. Using less electricity also benefits the planet and helps you reduce your carbon footprint.

Modern and Easy to Maintain

Finally, you’ll find that today’s unvented water cylinders are fully modern and easy to maintain. In fact, there’s very little homeowners need to do at all. With that being said, most manufacturers do require an annual inspection and maintenance to keep your warranty in effect. Your homeowner’s insurance may also require this. Thankfully, with EasyFlow, ensuring that you have that maintenance is as easy as signing up for our annual plan.
