Hot Water Cylinder Installations Winchester

In nearly every home in Winchester, a hot water cylinder can be found. This piece of equipment is used to send hot water to any household utilities that require it and is, therefore, an essential feature of any plumbing system. Depending on the type of plumbing setup in your home, you’ll have a specific kind of cylinder. It is for this reason that it is vital to consult with Winchester plumbing experts No1 PHD when having this appliance installed for the first time, or replaced due to a fault.

Here at No1 PHD, our local team are fully qualified and able to tackle a variety of different plumbing installations. The skill and experience of our team mean that they’re confident in being able to fulfil the plumbing needs of all homeowners and businesses alike. Call us today if you’re planning on having a hot water cylinder fitted into your property.

What is a Hot Water Cylinder?

Hot water cylinders are available as either vented or unvented. The former type of cylinder is gravity-led and relies on a cold-water tank to fill it with water. This water is then heated through an immersion heater before being distributed to the utilities in your home. Unvented models, on the other hand, are fed water from the mains pressure and distribute hot water directly. The water in these cylinders is then heated either via the central heating system or through solar technology.

Having a hot water cylinder is very beneficial for homes with a large number of people, or smaller properties with not a lot of space. Here are some of the main advantages of investing in this useful piece of modern equipment:

  • Creates the opportunity for an airing cupboard
  • A versatile appliance
  • Easy to store
  • Is able to cope with a high demand for hot water

As hot water cylinders are used on a daily basis in many homes, it’s inevitable that they will encounter issues over time. A broken coil, which is one of the most common faults, will result in the murky brown water from your central heating system mixing with the water in your cylinder. Such water is unhygienic to use, so it is vital that you have repairs carried out as soon as possible. Without dealing with the problem immediately, the damage is likely to worsen.

Our Hot Water Cylinder Installations

If your hot water cylinder is encountering issues frequently, it may be time to invest in a more up to date model. Older cylinders, in particular, are more prone to damage and should be replaced. If you’re considering such an investment, the first step is to contact our team at No1 PHD in Winchester. Our plumbing and heating engineers will consult with you thoroughly prior to the installation to help you decide what type of cylinder would be best for your home.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
