All Advice by Brompton Plumbing & Heating Advice
Sometimes you need a little bit of advice before hiring a trade. Our community of professional trades are here to help.
What are the benefits of installing an unvented cylinder?
Mains pressure hot water/no storage tanks in loft (assuming CH is pressured and not gravity)/more efficient hot water. Thermal Stores can also be a good alternative to Gravity systems and can avoid some of the installation issues related to unvented. As mentioned elsewhere Unvented system can be very dangerous if installed incorrectly and not maintained so must be installed by a qualified engineer.
Do I need a chimney for a gas fire?
You normally need a Flue; which is a 'chimney' that was designed/used previously for a coal fire, a lined chimney, a flue designed just for gas fires or a hole through an external wall to a low level termination. YOu can, however, get a gas fir/stove with catalysts fitted that don't have a flue (Flueless). Check the manufactureres instructions though as these often have a requirement for a large hole in your wall for ventialtion and can cuase a draught if poorly positioned.
