Our Boiler Recommendations
When a system or regular boiler is installed, there will always be a requirement for a hot water cylinder. Hot water is provided by taking heat from the boiler and pumping it through the central heating system to the cylinder where the heat is transferred via the cylinder’s heat exchange coils. This water is then stored ready to be passed through taps and showers when required.
Older, non-insulated cylinders tend to lose a considerable amount of heat and are likely to have a build-up of limescale, which reduces efficiency and makes water heat-up times longer. Even insulated cylinders over 10 years old lose more heat than modern ones.
Unvented cylinders have been designed to offer significant performance improvements over traditional cylinders. They combine rapid re-heat times with high heat retention and are guaranteed up to 25 years. They also come in a wide range of capacities, from 90 to 300 litres, so you can be sure of a size that’s exactly right for your home and lifestyle.
