The factory insulated cylinder offer you lower heat losses approximately 8 degrees over a 24 hour period. The factory insulated cylinder comes fitted with a quick recovery heating coil which allows for faster heat recovery times.

Replacing your cylinder with a factory insulated type could save you up to 25% on your current energy bills as outlined above.
The plumbing system connecting this cylinder is typically referred to as an open vented type. There is typically a cold water storage tank fitted in the attic, this then supplies water to the cylinder via a gravity feed. From the cylinder, a hot water vent pipe runs into the attic and terminates over the cold water storage tank.

Stainless cylinders are now becoming more popular as a replacement option. They offer a very high level of efficiency and are good value for money.
This type of installation is often referred to as a pressurised system. It is fed directly from the mains water supply meaning it can deliver your hot water at a higher pressure.
