Why you should have your Unvented Hot Water Cylinder serviced annually

Share this article

If you have an unvented hot water cylinder in your home, you may be wondering how often you need to have it serviced. The answer is: at least once a year. Here are some of the reasons why annual servicing is important for your unvented hot water cylinder.
– Safety: Unvented hot water cylinders operate under high pressure and temperature, which means they need to have safety devices that prevent them from overheating or exploding. These devices include pressure relief valves, temperature and pressure relief valves, expansion vessels, and thermostats. If these devices are not working properly, they can pose a serious risk to your home and your family. Annual servicing ensures that these devices are checked and tested for their functionality and performance.
– Efficiency: Unvented hot water cylinders provide hot water on demand, which means they use less energy than conventional vented cylinders that store hot water in a tank. However, over time, unvented hot water cylinders can lose their efficiency due to scale buildup, corrosion, or sediment accumulation. These issues can affect the heat transfer, the water flow, and the water quality of your unvented hot water cylinder. Annual servicing helps to identify and resolve these issues before they become more serious and costly.
– Longevity: Unvented hot water cylinders are designed to last for many years, but they need proper maintenance to extend their lifespan. Annual servicing helps to prevent premature wear and tear of your unvented hot water cylinder and its components. It also helps to avoid potential breakdowns and repairs that can disrupt your hot water supply and cause inconvenience and expense.
As you can see, annual servicing is essential for your unvented hot water cylinder. It can help you save money on energy bills, avoid safety hazards, and enjoy reliable and high-quality hot water for longer.
