A complete overhaul of my central heating system was done by Scott and Toby who were exemplary in their professionalism, customer service and standard of work completed. I can wholeheartedly recommend Martindales as the standard of work coupled with highly competitive pricing equals no need to look elsewhere. Thank you again Ryan and team.

New boiler installed and pipe work re-routed and now up and running within a couple of days. The guys were prompt, polite, accommodating, and worked hard throughout both days, (and in particular Scott); to ensure everything was completed on schedule. Good work ethics and team culture was recognised throughout. The boiler (a Viessmann Vitoden 100) is a Which? best buy brand, complete with a 10 year warranty, and Ryan and his team are approved installers, so I am looking forward to years of trouble free service! Price for work was competitive and within my budget. Not quite 5 stars due to a few minor points, but will definitely recommend Ryan and his team, to friends and family. Overall a good job done - thanks.

Hot Water Cylinders

Vented hot water cylinder

Vented cylinders, also known as ‘gravity fed hot water systems’ are supplied by a cold water tank kept in the loft and with the natural force of gravity, water travels through the pipes down to the hot water cylinder – hence the name.

These cylinders rely on gravity and the higher the position of the water tank, the greater the water pressure. These cylinders have a more simple design and are more affordable as a result. They are also easy to install and maintain.

Unvented hot water cylinder

Unvented cylinders do not require a water tank as water travels to the cylinder via cold water mains. The water is heated directly by an immersion heater or source from within the vessel.

An unvented cylinder is more space-effective as storage of a water tank is not needed.

It also has a quieter operating system and lower risk of water contamination due to its sealed off design.

Hot Water Cylinders

Direct hot water cylinder

In a direct cylinder, water is heated via an internal source or immersion heater within the cylinder. This is an option only for electrics.

Hot Water Cylinders

Indirect hot water cylinder

In an indirect cylinder, water is heated via an external source such as a boiler. An internal coil within the cylinder will heat up the collected water.

Indirect cylinders are a cheaper alternative to direct cylinders.

How does a hot water cylinder work?

A hot water cylinder will store and heat up water that we use in our homes. The type of cylinder you have will determine the way that water is heated.

For more information about the different types of hot water cylinders, contact us.

How do I know if my hot water cylinder needs replacing?

Hot water cylinders like many things can experience issues and breakdown. A hot water cylinder that is reaching a decade may need to be assessed and replaced.

If you have noticed your water has gone totally cold, there is a leak or you can hear strange noises coming from your system, you should seek out professional assistance to examine your cylinder and determine the best solution.

How often should you change a hot water cylinder?

It is recommended that you replace your hot water cylinder if it has reached the 8-12 year mark. However, you may replace this earlier or later depending on the functionality of your cylinder.

Why is my hot water cylinder not heating?

If your hot water cylinder is not heating up your water, this could be due to a tripped switch or incorrect thermostat settings.

If the thermostat settings are correct and there is no issue with the power supply, then you should seek professional assistance to conduct a thorough examination.
