Quality Hot Water Cylinders - Clarke’s Gas Services

Here at Clarke’s Gas Services, we offer absolutely fantastic hot water cylinders to clients throughout Faversham and the surrounding areas. Regardless of what you require from your hot water cylinder in Faversham, we guarantee that ours will exceed your expectations. There are two different types of hot water cylinders found in homes today, the newer pressurised unvented hot water cylinders, and the older style vented hot water tanks.

Unvented hot water cylinders were only made legal in the UK in 1986, and have rapidly grown in popularity. In an unvented system, there is no cold water tank, the sealed hot water cylinder is fed by the cold water mains instead. Due to the fact that they’re operating at mains pressure, they offer much better flow rates, which means your shower and bath performance should be higher.

Hot Water Cylinders

What Is A Hot Water Cylinder?

A hot water cylinder is also called a hot water tank, hot water storage tank, thermal storage tank, hot water thermal storage unit or a heat storage tank. It is a water tank used for storing hot water for space heating or domestic use. A properly insulated hot water cylinder can retain stored heat for days, helping to significantly reduce fuel costs.

Vented hot water cylinders are the most common type of hot water cylinder found in the UK. Unlike the newer unvented tanks, they are fed by cold water from a header tank which is normally found in the loft of a home. A vent pipe links the vented hot water cylinder and the cold water in the header tank.

The hot water cylinders that we offer throughout Faversham are a lot less complicated than the pressurised vented systems, and they’re also easy to maintain and install. This also makes them a much more cost effective option to heated water within your home.
