In years gone by your hot water storage will have been stored in a copper cylinder in your airing cupboard, then to get a high pressure hot water system your boiler would need to be changed to a combination boiler. All that is now changing, if you want the best hot water system then read on!

Unvented hot water was invented by the UK some 40 years ago. They have proved to be an excellent source of hot water for your home. The benefit of having an unvented cylinder to replace your old copper cylinder is that they allow you to keep your existing boiler and lose your cold water storage tank in the loft space.

Some Of Our Installations

We were contacted by a new customer who wanted a combination boiler for a property they had bought and were renovating. They were planning on extending the property to have 3 bathrooms.

They initially wanted a combination boiler but we advised that with 3 bathrooms and 14 radiators, a combination boiler would not keep up with showering demand. Instead, we advised an unvented cylinder with a System Boiler . We created 2 heating zones, one upstairs and one downstairs with a separate zone for the hot water, and these were controlled independently by two Nest Thermostats. With this type of setup, the customer has control over their upstairs and downstairs heating independently. Additionally, with the Nest Smart Thermostat, they can save energy whilst accessing the heating and hot water whilst they’re out!

This customer bought a bungalow and was in the process of updating and refurbishing it. They had a hot water cylinder in the airing cupboard which was located in the kitchen with a Regular Boiler heating the hot water and heating. With plenty of space in the loft, we moved the cylinder into the loft leaving the airing cupboard space as a usable space. The customer is over the moon with their hot water pressure!
