Hot Water Association Launches New Consumer Guide

In the first of its kind, the Hot Water Association (HWA) has launched a new consumer guide, giving homeowners essential information on keeping hot water cylinders in their best condition. The Homeowners Guide to Unvented Hot Water Cylinder Servicing gives consumers a handle on when to have cylinders serviced, who to contact and how to know that a good job has been done.

The HWA is recognised as the leading organisation, when it comes to domestic hot water storage. It’s also involved in the promotion of good standards within the industry. A division of the Energy and Utilities Alliance (EUA), it works with manufacturers, installers and agents alike, in promoting quality work and services in the sector. The new guide is part of that work. It gives homeowners the knowledge they need to make sure that they are getting the most from their hot water system.

Cylinder Servicing Tips for Home Owners

The new cylinder servicing guide for consumers is designed to equip homeowners with the knowledge they need to make sure that they are getting the best from their hot water system. From identifying the type of system you have at home to knowing when to get it your cylinder serviced, the guide gives you all the tips you need.

Key to maintaining your cylinder is making sure that you have a qualified person carry out any service, upgrade or replacement. The Homeowners Guide gives you a run-down on what your engineer should do when carrying out a service. From checking for damage to assessing the condition of expansion valves, the guide gives you an idea of what your engineer will look for and what they will check out, when servicing the cylinder.

Hot Water Association Best Practice Approach

The Hot Water Association is focussing on a best practice approach when it comes to looking after the needs of the domestic cylinder customer. Regular cylinder servicing from a qualified engineer is key when it comes to making sure you are getting the best from your hot water system. The new Homeowners Guide  sets out industry standards, legal compliance and consumer protection in an easy to read and straightforward way. It also educates consumers on the standards they should expect when an engineer services a cylinder in their home. The guide is the new go-to for home owners when it comes to cylinder servicing.

Comfort and Cost Savings with Underfloor Heating

Comfort, Space and Savings

There is a real comfort in being able to walk around your home in your bare feet when there are below zero temperatures outside. But aside from the obvious comfort, what are the other benefits of having underfloor heating? We take a look at all the upsides, from energy saving to design to freeing up space in your home. So, what are the hidden benefits of underfloor heating?

Save Energy and Money

Two very good reasons to install underfloor heating are energy and money savings. Once you’ve got your new heating system up and running, the savings can be substantial. For a start, a good underfloor heating (UFH)  system can work to its optimum at low water temperatures. This in turn improves the efficiency, cutting down on energy use. It’s also an ideal match for renewable energy heat sources. By using less energy, you’ll also cut down on heating running costs.

Design and Decor Freedom

One of great things about underfloor heating is the design freedom it gives you. No radiators means more floor space and room to design fixtures and fittings without having to take into consideration bulky rads or covers. It also means that you don’t have to think about furniture blocking heat sources. It also takes the hassle out of repainting or wallpapering.

Comfortable, Clean and Safe

A quality UFH system heats up quickly and evenly, giving you comfort throughout the home or building. Radiators focus the heat in one area, whereas underfloor heating provides you with a comfortable heat throughout a room. The radiant heat provided provides a balance of warmth in the air, which cuts down on the feeling of dry air, skin and eyes.

On a practical level, UFH is clean. You avoid having to clean radiators and there is no dust gathering in the gaps in the rads or between them and the wall or floor surface. Warming the floor reduces the occurrence of dust mites, so UFH can be of real benefit to people at risk of allergies.

Easy to Install & Low Maintenance

Underfloor heating is suitable for nearly every project type and the Therma-TeQ product portfolio has a system type to suit every floor construction.  Therefore there is no reason why your new build or refurb  couldn’t put UFH as a priority. It’s also a great investment if you ever considering moving or selling on, as underfloor heating is a bonus for buyers.

Therma-TeQ Underfloor Heating

At ThermaQ we provide state of the art UFH with our Therma-TeQ system. Simple to install and easy to use, all of our underfloor heating systems come with manuals demonstrating everything you need to know. We’ve technical experts on hand based throughout the country who can provide on-site backup as well as technical and design support on future projects. Therma-TeQ’s designers produce a detailed CAD design layout to illustrate every aspect of the system and ensure that the installation can take place efficiently and to suit the install schedule.

Picking the Right Heating System for Your New Build

Plan Your Heating from the Outset

Picking the heating system for your new build shouldn’t be an afterthought. One of the advantages of a new home is the blank canvas when it comes to design and layout. You’ve thought about the rooms, the type of kitchen you want and probably the decor; these things are important, but have you thought about how you’re going to heat your water and home? It’s important to see your heating as integral to the overall design of your home. You should incorporate it from the outset. Thinking about the right heating system can save you time and money. So what’s the right system for your house? Well, a lot of it depends on your current lifestyle and needs into the future. We take a look at some of the options and how to go about getting the right fit for your home.

Use a Domestic Heating Design

The first thing we recommend you do, before making your mind up about your hot water and heating system, is to work with a domestic heating designer. Your heating installer may already work with or have a domestic heating firm as a partner. Ask them about the heating design. A domestic heating design will put the heating system as a core part of your building project. A designer will create detailed CAD (computer aided design) drawings, showing where boilers, pipes or radiators are in the overall design of the building. You may want different heating zones in your home, with different settings and times for different parts of the house. A domestic heating designer can work with you and/or your installer to get the plan that suits you best. They will also work with other professionals in the creation of detailed plans for your home. This will save you time and unnecessary changes to layouts. Find out more about Domestic Heating Design.

Choosing Your Heat Source

There are a range of heating options you can choose for a new build, as you’re not constrained by existing structures or heat systems. You can also combine  Here are a few to look at, from how to heat your water to keeping warm underfoot.

Underfloor Heating

If you are at home for most of the day, underfloor heating can be a great option. It gives steady and consistent heat throughout the day. Once you’ve got your new heating system up and running, the savings can be substantial as good underfloor heating (UFH) system can work to its optimum at low water temperatures. it also gives you freedom to design your rooms and decor, free from having to work around where radiators are placed.

Heat Pumps

Home owners and installers are increasingly opting for new heat pump technology for new builds. Air source heat pumps, which extract heat from the outside environment and upgrade it to higher temperatures, are an option now recognised as efficient and less costly sources of heating. Next generation heat pumps are also smart phone compatible and benefit from remote monitoring for better service.

Solar Thermal

There are a few good reasons to think about installing solar panels for your home. Investing in solar thermal panels is a cost saving exercise in the medium term. Once you’re up and running you will be saving on your hot water bills. There is also the obvious good environmental impact of using solar. Once you use a registered and reliable installer, the process of installing the panels is straightforward and it’s cost effective. Of course, there is also the convenience of having low cost or free hot water at the ready. Find out more about our Evocyl Standard Cylinders, which include a solar version.

Radiators & Cylinder Types Matter

If you choose to have radiators throughout your home, make sure they are the most efficient they can be. One of the advantages of a new build is that you have the option to choose next generation rads which operate at low temperatures. Pick a radiator which has a very high output per section, at low temperatures. Picking the right cylinder also makes sense. Again, look for something which is recognised as having the best in production and energy efficiency. Always make sure that someone qualified is carrying out any installations in your home and where possible someone who has received training specific to the product you’re using. You can find out more about the ThermaQ Evocyl range of cylinders here.

No matter which type of heating or hot water system you plan on using, make sure to do some research on products and spend some time thinking about heating design. It’ll be worth it in the long run.

Reasons to Choose an Unvented Cylinder

About Unvented Cylinders

For the Homeowner

If you’re a home owner, your plumber, builder or hot water and heating specialist will be able to advise you on the best hot water solution for your home or building, depending on a range of factors, from the age and size of the building to the budget you’re working with. So what’s the difference between a vented cylinder and an unvented cylinder when it comes to heating your water? A traditional vented cylinder requires connection to  a water tank, usually in a loft or attic space, using gravity to deliver hot water to the home. This is done by use of an immersion or by an external source like a central heating boiler. An unvented cylinder uses a pressurised system, that has a direct feed from your cold water supply, so there is no need for a cold water storage tank in the loft or attic.

For the Installer

If you’re an experienced plumber or installer, you’ll already know that unvented cylinders have a high flow rate, which customers want, are energy efficient and a come with a long guarantee.

Good Reasons to Choose Unvented

Unvented cylinders are increasingly the chosen option in homes and larger buildings. There are a lot of good reasons to go with an unvented cylinder. Here are just some of them:

Unvented cylinders can be installed in lots of different areas of the home, giving more freedom in designing the space.

Unvented cylinders usually take up less space than older systems.

They use water directly from the mains, so need for a tank in the attic. This isn’t just good for saving space – it can also take away the possibility of freezing issues in winter.

Because they use mains pressure, they can provide a much more even flow for baths and showers.

Once installed, unvented cylinders can give you real savings in terms of energy efficiency; good for the environment and your pocket.

Because of a sealed system, there isn’t the risk of water contamination, of real concern to SMEs and families alike.

Of course another reason to choose an unvented cylinder is – ThermaQ. We manufacture our own and use only recognised installers.

The ThermaQ Range of Unvented Cylinders

At ThermaQ we make unvented cylinders, using the most up to date technology and manufacturing know how. You can view our full range here.

Which Evocyl Hot Water Cylinder to Pick?

The ThermaQ Evocyl Range

We’ve balanced the need for top quality hot water cylinders with the need for affordability and Evocyl is the answer. At ThermaQ we use the most advanced water heating technology available and we develop some of our own too. Evocyl Cylinders use duplex stainless steel for maximum strength and the ability to resist corrosion. Using robotic technology, we’re able to make sure that the technical accuracy is second to none. Our cylinders also come with a 25 year guarantee against manufacturing defects. But which of the Evocyl range is best suited to the job?  Here’s a run down of the different Evocyl cylinders:

Evocyl Standard

The Evocyl Standard is designed to provide fast flowing hot water to one or multiple outlets. It’s also manufactured to guarantee quick recovery and to be more energy efficient than a usual cylinder. It also comes in sizes from 90L to 300L.

Evocyl Slimline

The clue’s in the name. With a diameter of only 475mm, the Evocyl Slimline is perfect for small spaces. A lot of older properties have smaller airing cupboards, as do a lot of flat conversions,  but it needn’t stop you have fast filling baths or good pressure in showers, as the Slimline gives you this, without the need to reconfigure existing spaces. It’s also a good way to save on building and plumbing expenses.

Evocyl Horizontal

For those awkward spaces, the Evocyl Horizontal offers increased siting options allowing larger storage capacities in areas that would not normally accommodate standard vertical cylinders.
All horizontal cylinders come with cradles too.

Evocyl Super Eco

The  Evocyl Super Eco comes as a response to our need to reduce our impact on the environment. We’ve increased the HCFC/CFC free insulation to 85mm, lowering the heat loss and reducing the amount of energy used by the cylinder, reducing fuel bills along the way. The Evocyl Super Eco can also help improve SAP performance in new build properties.

Evocyl Heatpump Cylinders

The Evocyl Heatpump Cylinder is as, you’d expect, designed for use with heatpumps. Purpose built to our exacting standards this cylinder meets the specific requirements of the market and our customers. It’s designed with a high efficiency heat exchanger to facilitate the transfer of the low temperature inputs of ground & air source heat pumps.

Evocyl Calorifier

The Evocyl Calorifier is designed for large volumes of hot water storage. Calorifiers are manufactured from high grade stainless steel with coil sizes to suit all applications and come supplied with money saving and highly accurate digital thermostats.

The Evocyl range of cylinders also comes with some pre-plumbed options.

You can also check out our Evocyl Air range, designed with environmental care and responsibility in mind.
