EHC Comet 12kW Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

EHC Comet 12kW - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the EHC Comet 12kW electric Flow boiler is worth considering if you want a electric Flow boiler.

Combination or combi boilers are highly efficient and save a lot of space in your home. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap and, as a result, you don’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water tank in the roof space.

These boilers are, therefore, suitable for smaller homes and especially those without a loft. They are also cost-effective as the water is heated instantly and distributed on demand rather than being stored. Combi boilers are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and replacing an older boiler with a new combi boiler will reduce your electric bills significantly.

However, there are downsides to this type of boiler. If you take a shower while someone else is using a tap, less water will reach each point of usage at lower rates of pressure and temperatures as combi boilers can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time.

Would the EHC Comet 12kW electric Flow be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this EHC Comet 12kW Electric Flow boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your electric bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this EHC Comet 12kW Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for given its output of 12 kW?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this EHC Comet 12kW Electric Flow boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.


What is the size of the EHC Comet 12kW?

The EHC Comet 12kW measures 1,745 mm high and 630 mm wide by a depth of 580 mm.

Is the EHC Comet 12kW non-condensing or condensing?

There is no legal requirement in the UK for electric boilers to be condensing as there is for gas and oil boilers. This is because electric boilers like the EHC Comet 12kW do not burn fuel during their operation nor do they create exhaust gases that condensing boilers then extract the warmth from, for example, to heat water coming back from the radiators in a home. Electric boilers are more efficient by design than non-electric boilers.

Is choosing the EHC Comet 12kW electric Flow boiler environmentally friendly?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a EHC Comet 12kW electric Flow in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Prior to April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated as an "A" grade).

The EHC Comet 12kW has been awarded an efficiency rating of 100% and a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

The ERP ratings of this EHC Comet 12kW Electric Flow boiler are however marked down because it's powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The EHC Comet 12kW has been graded "TBC" by ERP assessors.

Some electric boilers receive lower ERP scores because of the carbon emissions created by the burning of fossil fuels to generate the electricity they use for power. This is unfair because the actual operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is either 98% or 99% - a level that no oil or gas boiler has yet reached.

Does a EHC Comet 12kW electric Flow boiler come with a warranty period?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included with the EHC EHC Comet 12kW boiler.

EHC Comet 12kW Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is EHC’s Comet 12kW - system, regular or combi?

Looking for a electric electric Flow boiler for your flat or house? Then the EHC Comet 12kW may be an option you should consider.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

Is the EHC Comet 12kW electric Flow boiler a suitable choice for my property?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your electric bills will go up and not down.

The output of the EHC Comet 12kW electric Flow is 12 kW, so which types of property would this EHC Comet 12kW Electric Flow boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this EHC Comet 12kW Electric Flow boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the EHC Comet 12kW

The EHC Comet 12kW is 1,745 mm high by 630 mm wide by 580 mm deep.

Is the EHC Comet 12kW a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

Electric boilers like the EHC Comet 12kW don't need to be "condensing", unlike gas and oil boilers. That's because, unlike gas and oil boilers, electric boilers do not burn any fuel which creates still-warm exhaust gases that condensing boilers then use to, among other tasks, heat water coming back from your radiators. They are, by design, more efficient in operation than non-electric boilers and they're not covered by the 2005 law requiring all boilers to be "condensing".

Is the EHC Comet 12kW electric Flow boiler environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a EHC Comet 12kW electric Flow in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The rating awarded to the EHC Comet 12kW is 100% with a SEDBUK rating of "D".

The ERP ratings of this EHC Comet 12kW Electric Flow boiler are however marked down because it's powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

This is unfair because the actual operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is either 98% or 99% - a level that no oil or gas boiler has yet reached.

Am I covered if the EHC Comet 12kW electric Flow boiler breaks down?

The EHC Comet 12kW boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
