EHC Fusion Comet 12KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you are searching for a system boiler for your house or flat, the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW is certainly one to consider.

System boilers, like regular boilers, require a hot water cylinder (usually placed in a landing or airing cupboard) to work but they don’t require a separate cold water tank. This makes installation quicker and easier and, for homeowners with little loft space or who are considering a loft conversion, they're a more suitable choice.

System boilers don't need separate water tanks because they contain built-in circulating pumps that perform the same task. Just like heat only boilers, they require you to program in the times when you want heating and hot water to be available - they don't offer instant hot water like combi boilers. The cylinders keep whatever water they contain warm, although, if there is no hot water in the tank, you will have to wait up to an hour before hot water will come through your taps.

Is a EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your electric bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system is 12 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this EHC Fusion Comet 12KW System boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW boiler?

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW measures 710 mm tall, 418 mm wide, and 252 mm deep.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW condensing or non-condensing?

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 Fusion Comet 12KW 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.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Do the figures suggest that installing the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your electric bills.

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW was awarded an efficiency rating of "100%", equivalent to a "D" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The boiler's poor ERP rating, however, reflects how it is marked down for running on electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. It was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW has been awarded an ERP rating of "D".

In truth, however, the actual operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is 98% or 99% - a level no oil or gas boiler has yet reached. So why does it receive such a low ERP score? It's because fossil fuels generate the power used by electric boilers and factoring this in results in low efficiency scores since electricity generation is carbon-intensive. We're not sure this is a fair way of comparing energy efficiency given the advances in electric boiler technology over the last 5 years.

Will I be covered if the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system breaks down?

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

EHC Fusion Comet 12KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

EHC Fusion Comet 12KW - combi, system or regular boiler?

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW boiler is a system boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - normally fitted inside an airing or landing cupboard or similar spot. Unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a separate cold water tank, making them a more suitable choice if you have no loft, lack space in the attic, or are planning to do a loft conversion.

These boilers distribute hot water around your home to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulating pumps and they're easier to install as there is one less component (the water tank) to find room for. A system boiler needs to be programmed to tell it what times you want heat and hot water - unlike combi boilers, they don't provide hot water on demand.

Should I install a EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system boiler in my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system boiler is 12 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system Fusion Comet would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW?

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW is 710 mm [H] by 418 mm [W] by 252 mm [D] in size.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW non-condensing or condensing?

Gas and oil boilers burn fuel to heat the water you need for your home - electric boilers like the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW do not. Condensing non-electric boilers create exhaust gases which they then recycle to heat the water coming back through your pipes to your radiator, among other tasks, for greater efficiency. Because electric boilers do not create these gases when operating, they do not need the secondary heat exchanger found in condensing boilers.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system boiler environmentally friendly?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would installing the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are "B" graded and 90% and above are graded "A").

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW was awarded an efficiency rating of 100% with a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

ERP assessors are however not keen that the boiler is powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

An ERP rating of "D" has been awarded to the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW.

This is very low, but why? In reality, nearly every electric boiler on the market has an actual energy efficiency in operation of near 100%. However, some electric boilers have low ERP scores because the electricity generation process currently involves burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into the score - unfairly, in our opinion.

Will I be covered if the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system breaks down?

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW boiler comes with a 2 year warranty for parts and labour.
