What is an open vent or gravity heating system?

FAQ banner image

An open vent or gravity heating system is one which features a feed and expansion tank, positioned at the system’s highest point. They are only compatible with heat-only boilers, otherwise known as ‘regular’ boilers.

The ‘open vent’ refers to a pipe which emerges out of the heating system above the tank, hooking over into it.
