EHC Comet 9kW Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the EHC Comet 9kW a combi, system or regular boiler?

The EHC Comet 9kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a electric Flow boiler for your flat or house.

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.

Is a EHC Comet 9kW electric Flow boiler appropriate for 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 9kW electric Flow's output at 9 kW, which types of property would this EHC Comet 9kW Electric Flow boiler be most appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a EHC Comet 9kW electric Flow boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the EHC Comet 9kW

The dimensions of the EHC Comet 9kW are 1,745 mm tall, 630 mm wide, and 580 mm deep.

Is the EHC Comet 9kW 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 9kW 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 the EHC Comet 9kW electric Flow a good choice for the environment?

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.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a EHC Comet 9kW electric Flow in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured in the UK or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The EHC Comet 9kW has been awarded 100% for its energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "D" rating.

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

In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP), the aim of which was to ensure that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

The legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production to the product's actual use by the customer, through to the point of disposal.

This EHC Comet 9kW Electric Flow boiler's ERP rating is "TBC".

How is this so given that electric boilers are nearly always more efficient than their gas and oil counterparts, with an actual operational efficiency rating around the 98% to 99% mark, in most cases? Some electric boilers receive very low ERP scores because the electricity they draw for power is often generated by burning fossil fuels. In our opinion, this is unfair on electric boilers.

What is the warranty period on a EHC Comet 9kW electric Flow boiler?

The EHC Comet 9kW boiler comes with a 2 year warranty for parts and labour.

EHC Comet 9kW Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the EHC Comet 9kW - standard, combi or system?

If you’re looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, then the EHC Comet 9kW is one you may wish to consider.

In many properties, combi boilers are more suitable than traditional types of boiler. Combi boilers heat water instantly on demand, which they draw directly from the mains supply, removing the need for storage tanks that can take up valuable space in your home.

A combi boiler is often the right choice for a smaller property, particularly if your home doesn't have a useable loft. As water is heated and delivered immediately rather than being kept warm for hours in an immersion tank, combi boilers reduce electric usage, thereby minimising your heating costs.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they can only heat a certain amount of water at any one time. This means that, if two people are using different taps or showers within your home at the same time, the flow of heated water to each will be reduced, as will the water pressure and temperature.

Should I choose a EHC Comet 9kW electric Flow boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your electric bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the EHC Comet 9kW electric Flow's output at 9 kW, which types of property would this EHC Comet 9kW Electric Flow boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this EHC Comet 9kW Electric Flow boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the EHC Comet 9kW boiler?

The EHC Comet 9kW's dimensions are 1,745 mm [H] x 630 mm [W] x 580 mm [D].

Is the EHC Comet 9kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Condensing oil and gas boilers use the exhaust gases created in the production of heat to reheat water, for example, coming back from your radiators. As electric boilers like the EHC Comet 9kW don't create exhaust gases during their operation, there is no need to include a secondary heat exchanger to perform these tasks as they are naturally more efficient.

Is the EHC Comet 9kW electric Flow environmentally friendly?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Will choosing to install a EHC Comet 9kW electric Flow in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (SEDBUK score of "A"). This is higher than the 88% that was the legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working normally - its standard functioning and operation.

The EHC Comet 9kW is rated as 100% energy efficient, equivalent to a "D" SEDBUK rating.

The boiler is marked down in its ERP rating for running on electricity.

The aim of the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use, right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the EHC Comet 9kW from the Comet range is "TBC".

Some electric boilers receive low ERP scores because the electricity they use for power is generated by burning fossil fuels, which creates high levels of carbon emissions that escape into the atmosphere. This is an unfair comparison because, in reality, virtually every electric boiler has an energy efficiency in operation of near 100%.

Will I be covered if the EHC Comet 9kW electric Flow breaks down?

The EHC Comet 9kW boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.
