EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

Suitable for a house or a flat, the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system boiler is worth considering if you want a system boiler.

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 the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for electric than you need to.

The output of the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system is 14.4 kW, so which types of property would this EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW System boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW - size in millimetres

EHC’s Fusion Comet 14.4KW is 710 mm tall, 418 mm wide, and 252 mm deep.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW 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 14.4KW 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 Fusion Comet 14.4KW system an environmentally friendly boiler?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will installing a EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW was given an efficiency rating of 100% and a SEDBUK grading of "D".

The boiler is however penalised in its ERP ratings for using electricity for power.

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The aim of the regulation is to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce the gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW is "D".

This is very low, especially given the advances made in electric boiler technology over the last 5 years. However, the comparison is, in our opinion, unfair because the actual operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is either 98% or 99% - a level no oil or gas boiler has yet reached. The reason for some boilers' poor ERP scores is that the electricity they need to operate is generated by the burning of fossil fuels, which the assessors consider to be carbon-intensive.

How long is the warranty period on the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system boiler?

The EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is EHC’s Fusion Comet 14.4KW - system, regular or combi?

Looking for a electric system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW boiler may be worth considering.

Like regular boilers, system boilers have a control panel that you use to program the times of the day when you want hot water to be available or the central heating to come on, such as in the morning when several people will be having showers or baths.

Once the water is heated, it is stored and kept warm in a hot water cylinder during the hours you've programmed. Hot water cylinders are often installed in an airing or landing cupboard and they contain built-in circulating pumps whose job is to heat water drawn from the mains.

System boilers do not need a cold-water tank like heat only boilers, making them a popular choice for homeowners who want to save space and those who are considering a loft conversion in the future. They're also easier for heating engineers to install, as they require one less large part. Instead, they use built-in circulating pumps.

Would the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW 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 14.4KW system outputs at a maximum of 14.4 kW, so which types of property would this EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW System boiler be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system Fusion Comet would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is a EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW boiler?

The EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW measures 710 mm in height and has a width of 418 mm and a depth of 252 mm.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW condensing or non-condensing?

Since 2005, all oil or gas boilers manufactured or installed in the UK must be more efficient condensing boilers. What this means is that the warmth present in exhaust gases created by the burning of oil or gas must be recycled via a secondary heat exchanger to, for example, heat water coming back from the radiators. As electric boilers like the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW do not burn fuel, they are exempt from this law as they are more efficient and economical by design.

How does the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system rate environmentally?

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.

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.

Will installing a EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

The energy efficiency rating for boilers describes the amount of energy they use and waste during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "A" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "B" SEDBUK rating).

The EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW scored an efficiency rating of 100% and a SEDBUK band rating of D.

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 Fusion Comet 14.4KW System boiler's ERP rating is "D".

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.

Is this EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system covered by a warranty?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW System boiler covers you for 2 years.
