Economy 7 Combination copper hot water cylinder

Direct and Indirect Economy 7 cylinders with combined cold water compartment

An Economy 7 cylinder is designed to exploit cheap 'off-peak' electricity, typically available through the night.

An E7 Combination cylinder combines a cold water header compartment at the top of the cylinder (removing the need for a separate header tank) and heats the water in the main body using electrical immersion heaters.

A feature of an E7 cylinder or tank is the addition of a second immersion heater (unlike a standard direct cylinder that only has one). The lower of the two elements is typically connected to the economy supply/tariff, the upper heater is usually used as a boost element and operated manually when demand for hot water exceeds that stored. Our cylinders are supplied with the two immersion heater bosses (the bit you screw the heater into) but immersion heaters are sold separately. Please enquire.

Because you are heating your cylinder overnight it is important to not to loose the stored heat by the morning. Economy 7 cylinders are therefore coated with a high performance insulation to minimise standing heat loss.

Compliant with Part L of the Building Regulations. Furthermore, because it is biodegradable it will cause no future harm to the environment.

When sizing a cylinder remember the stated dimensions do not include the thickness of insulation. You must add the thickness of insulation to the cylinder dimension to obtain the finished size. This is most important if the cylinder needs to pass through a doorway or access hatch. Make sure you have enough room to make connections and service immersion heaters.
Note: Cylinder illustrations are for guidance only. The relative location of the hot water outlet to immersion heaters (and boiler connections where applicable) may positioned to customer requirements thereby enabling easy fitting/retrofit. Please refer to Designing a Cylinder section.

In the cylinder industry nothing should be assumed or regarded as 'standard'. Features such and as the position of connections, a shower take off, drain, boiler control stat/sensor pocket or any other item should be stated as a requirement, not assumed.
