EHC Fusion Comet 12KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers are suitable for larger homes where there is a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating.

Through their use of a hot water cylinder, they provide hot water on demand during the day - as long as there's enough water left in the cylinder. Just let the boiler know when you want hot water for your radiators and taps via the programming panel and, subject to tank size and household usage, it'll be there for you.

Unlike heat only boilers, there is no requirement to find room in the attic for a cold water storage tank. System boilers are therefore quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Would the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the electric your boiler needs to work.

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system outputs at a maximum of 12 kW, so which types of property would this EHC Fusion Comet 12KW System boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this EHC Fusion Comet 12KW System boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is a EHC Fusion Comet 12KW boiler?

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

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

Previously, gas and oil boilers were pretty inefficient and, in 2005, a law was passed requiring that all new gas and oil boilers must be "condensing". Condensing boilers contain a secondary heat exchanger that uses the exhaust gases created by burning gas and oil to, for example, reheat water coming back from the radiators. As electric boilers like the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW do not burn fuel in the home, they do not need this modification.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system good for the environment?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured for the UK market since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% - 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW was given an efficiency rating of 100% and a SEDBUK grading of "D".

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

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation intended to reduce energy consumption related to products, from the initial manufacturing process right through to their eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The ERP rating for the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW is "D".

Why is it so low? It's because it uses electricity - this is considered carbon-intensive since fossil fuels are burned in its generation. Operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99% so we feel this is a misleading comparison that unfairly reflects the actual performance of electric boilers.

Does a EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system boiler come with a warranty period?

The parts and labour warranty on the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

EHC Fusion Comet 12KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

A system boiler needs a hot water cylinder to work but it does not require a cold water tank, unlike with heat only boilers. This makes system boilers suitable for properties that lack loft space (or have no loft at all) or where a loft conversion is planned. The cylinder stores hot water for use throughout the day and water can be distributed to more than one tap or shower simultaneously without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with).

System boilers are generally found in larger homes or properties housing large families. System boilers are easier to install than heat only boilers because their major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and, of course, no cold water tank is needed.

With a system boiler, you use the control panel to set times for when you want the heating and hot water to be available but, unlike combi boilers, they cannot deliver hot water instantly. If you don't set your timer, you will have to wait for the water to heat up.

Would the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that 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’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your electric than you need to.

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system has an output of 12 kW, so which types of property would this EHC Fusion Comet 12KW System boiler be appropriate for?

Most boiler engineers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW in millimetres

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW measures 710 mm in height by 418 mm in width by 252 mm in depth.

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

The law passed in 2005 requiring all boilers installed in the UK to be "condensing" boilers does not apply to electric boilers. This is because, unlike non-electric boilers, electric boilers do not burn either gas or oil to operate and create no hot exhaust gases that can be recycled. Electric boilers like the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW are more efficient and economical by design.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system an energy-efficient boiler?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Will choosing to install a EHC Fusion Comet 12KW system in your home help the environment? Let's review 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".

But because it's powered by electricity, it's penalised in its ERP ratings.

The Energy Related Products Directive's intention is to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW’s ERP rate is "D".

Why is it so low despite the fact that, operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99%? It's because the electricity these boilers draw for power is often generated by burning fossil fuels, which ERP assessors class as carbon-intensive. In our opinion, this is not comparing like for like.

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the EHC Fusion Comet 12KW breaks down?

The EHC Fusion Comet 12KW is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years following installation.
