EHC Comet 14.4kW Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the EHC Comet 14.4kW - regular, system or combi?

Looking for a electric electric Flow boiler for your flat or house? Then the EHC Comet 14.4kW may be an option you should consider.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is a EHC Comet 14.4kW electric Flow boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Whether this EHC Comet 14.4kW 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 14.4kW Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for given its output of 14.4 kW?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this EHC Comet 14.4kW Electric Flow boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


What are the dimensions of the EHC Comet 14.4kW boiler?

The size of the EHC Comet 14.4kW boiler is 1,745 mm tall, 630 mm wide, and 580 mm deep.

Comet 14.4kW – non-condensing or condensing?

The reason why the Government required all non-electric boilers to be "condensing" in 2005 was that they were much more energy-efficient. Rather than letting all exhaust gases escape into the atmosphere through the flue as older boilers did, condensing boilers use the warmth present in these gases to, for example, reheat water coming back from your radiators via a secondary heat exchanger. As electric boilers like the EHC Comet 14.4kW do not burn any fuel, they are more efficient by design, there are no gases to recycle, and so they are not covered by the 2005 law.

How does the EHC Comet 14.4kW electric Flow boiler rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing a EHC Comet 14.4kW electric Flow boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

All boilers manufactured and supplied after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency is/was measured at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The EHC Comet 14.4kW has an efficiency rating of 100% with a SEDBUK grade of "D".

The boiler's poor ERP rating reflects the fact that it runs on electricity.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products that require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

Because electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, this is factored into the scores of some ERP electric boilers - unfairly. Operational energy efficiency for electric boilers is generally around the 98-99% level.

The ERP rating for the EHC Comet 14.4kW is "TBC".

What warranty does the EHC Comet 14.4kW electric Flow boiler come with?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included with the EHC EHC Comet 14.4kW boiler.

EHC Comet 14.4kW Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the EHC Comet 14.4kW boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

You might want to consider the EHC Comet 14.4kW for your house or flat if you are looking for a electric Flow boiler.

Traditional boilers consist of one or more large tanks that take up a lot of space in people's homes. One tank heats water and keeps it warm and the other stores water for heating later.

In contrast, a combi boiler is a much smaller stand-alone unit. Instead of requiring water tanks, it draws cold water from the mains. When hot water is needed for a shower, for the washing up, or the dishwasher, the cold water is heated instantly by the boiler and distributed to where it is needed.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that there is a limit to how much water they are capable of heating at the same time. For instance, water pressure, volume and temperature will be adversely affected if more than one individual in the home needs hot water at the same time.

Should I install a EHC Comet 14.4kW electric Flow boiler in my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With a boiler, however, size does not mean how big the boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the EHC Comet 14.4kW electric Flow's output at 14.4 kW, which types of property would this EHC Comet 14.4kW Electric Flow boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this EHC Comet 14.4kW Electric Flow boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the EHC Comet 14.4kW

The EHC Comet 14.4kW boiler is 1,745 mm high, 630 mm wide, and 580 mm deep.

Is the EHC Comet 14.4kW condensing or non-condensing?

In every gas and oil boiler, there is a flue that carries the exhaust gases created from the burning of the fuel required to power the boiler. As there is no fuel to be burned in an electric boiler, an electric boiler like the EHC Comet 14.4kW does not need to be adapted to be "condensing" as there are no gases to recycle. Electric boilers are naturally efficient and economic.

Is the EHC Comet 14.4kW electric Flow an environmentally friendly boiler?

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.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing a EHC Comet 14.4kW electric Flow boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” rating and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - 88% and 89% energy efficiency was given a “B” rating and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the EHC Comet 14.4kW was rated at 100% with a SEDBUK grading of "D".

However, the ERP rating for this EHC Comet 14.4kW Electric Flow boiler is marked down because it runs on electricity.

Manufacturers who offer more environmentally friendly products are rewarded by the ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive).

Operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99% - however, because they use electricity, which is considered carbon-intensive energy, some are (in our opinion) unfairly scored down in their ERP ratings for this.

In the case of the EHC Comet 14.4kW, the ERP rating is "TBC".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the EHC Comet 14.4kW breaks down?

EHC offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the EHC Comet 14.4kW.
