Unvented hot water cylinder repairs
Unvented hot water cylinder repairs in London
We know how important it is to have hot running water in your home. Our experienced team of heating engineers provide a professional unvented hot water cylinder repair service that will ensure your existing hot water heater can meet your requirements, supplying hot water quickly and keeping it at temperature for longer.
Is your hot water cylinder vented or unvented?
Two of the most popular types of hot water cylinders are vented and unvented. The suitability of each will depend on your property and its water supply. Unvented cylinders use a mains pressure water supply whilst vented hot water cylinders are supplied by a large cold water storage tank. Water is carried down from this tank through a vent pipe and is heated within the cylinder. Water pressure in a vented system is determined by the height of the water storage tank, meaning that in many properties the tank will be located in the loft.
Common faults with
unvented hot water cylinders
There are a number of problems that could affect your hot water supply. Some of these are minor issues, but others may require our engineers’ in-depth expertise to repair. Typical problems include:
- Malfunctioning controls and safety devices
- Thermostat faults
- Power loss caused by tripped circuit breakers
- Failed expansion vessels, faulty expansion valves, and pressure reduction valves
These problems can present themselves in several ways including:
- Lack of hot water
- Fluctuating water pressure
- Slow flow rate
- Water escaping when not in use
Being without hot water at home can be disruptive and miserable. Whether cold water is flowing when you open the hot tap or no water is flowing at all, we can send a qualified engineer to investigate and repair faults to your unvented hot water cylinder within 24 hours. Our professional team will ensure your water cylinder is back up and running again as soon possible and is heating and storing water effectively, ready for whenever you need it.
