At Direct Heating Supplies, we provide a wide selection of copper cylinders leading brands within the industry.

Cooper cylinders are manufactured from copper and cocooned in a foam insulating layer, copper cylinders are great at retaining heat, making them the perfect choice for heating, and storing hot water in most domestic properties.

We stock a range of direct and indirect copper cylinders, allowing you to select the right cylinder for your existing central heating system. The type of copper cylinder you'll need - direct or indirect - will depend on whether you need the water in the cylinder to be heated 'directly' by the cylinder itself or an external appliance such as a boiler or solar panels.

Please note all cylinder purchases must be made online and cannot be made via the customer service phone line. Any incorrectly purchased hot water cylinder that you wish to return will involve a restocking fee and expensive carriage charges.

What is the difference between indirect and direct?

Hot water cylinders are popular in the larger home for households with a high hot water demand and usage. Constructed from high quality and durable stainless steel or copper, hot water cylinders ensure longevity for a variety of domestic and commercial uses. Vented hot water cylinders rely on a feeder tank to provide it with mains fed cold water. This water is then heated and is distributed to the hot water outlets (i.e. taps, showers) as part of a gravity led system. Vented cylinders tend to be used alongside regular boiler installations, whereas unvented cylinders are commonly used with system boiler installations.

How do Copper Cylinders work?

Copper hot water cylinders are able to store a large capacity of hot water. There are two types of copper hot water cylinders, direct vented and indirect vented. Indirect copper hot water cylinders rely on a feeder tank which provides it with cold water from the mains. The water is then heated within the cylinder and distributed through outlets such as taps and showers. Indirect vented copper hot water cylinders work alongside a regular boiler which feeds hot water to the cylinder.
