Modern households are expecting their hot water systems to be capable of delivering more hot water, at higher flow rates, simultaneously to multiple outlets and with limited loss of performance and unvented cylinders provide the perfect answer
(PRWEB) April 28, 2010
Unvented cylinder systems are now experiencing an unprecedented growth in the replacement market, as many installers recognising that a combi system isn't always the best choice, according to McDonalds Engineers, one of the UK's leading hot water cylinder manufacturers.
Since figures published by the Hot Water Association in 2008, showed that mains pressure hot water systems reached close to half of the total hot water storage market, for the very first time, the growth has continued as changing demands favour the benefits offered by unvented cylinders.
Whilst combi systems can provide an instantaneous hot water solution, very few can exceed 20 litres per minute, or cope with demand from multiple outlets in the way that Unvented Cylinders can.
And as the unvented cylinders can also be used with renewable energy systems such as solar, heat pumps , solid fuel and wind power, Unvented Cylinder systems are fast becoming the cylinder of choice for hot water systems.
McDonald Engineers Sales Director, Jamie Stewart, explained " Modern households are expecting their hot water systems to be capable of delivering more hot water, at higher flow rates, simultaneously to multiple outlets and with limited loss of performance and unvented cylinders provide the perfect answer."
He continued, "As a result we have seen enquiries for our POWERflow 2000 unvented cylinder rise considerably from installers, house builders and local authorities who are beginning to question the attractiveness of the combi system. We have also seen a dramatic increase in sales of our THERMflow Thermal Storage Unit. This gives the benefits of Mains Pressure Hot Water at the tap, but with a Vented Store. This type of unit is ideal for all boilers and can also be used when people have an additional Solid Fuel heat source."
