When it comes to installing a hot water cylinder in your home, you will have to make a choice between buying one which is vented or one which is unvented. Before deciding, it is important that you consider which option would be better for the property you live in.
An unvented cylinder works directly from the mains water supply. It is essentially a hot water storage cylinder. Unvented cylinders typically provide better water pressure and flow as they are fed directly from the mains supply of water. This is a great advantage for homes with one more than one bathroom as you don’t have to rely on a pump to maintain the strength of the flow when using hot water. Unvented cylinders can be placed anywhere in your home and many unvented cylinders also have enhanced safety features and controls to stop them from malfunctioning.
