EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you are considering installing a system boiler in your house or flat, then the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW boiler is certainly worth investigating.

For homes that have a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating and for larger properties, system boilers are a more suitable option than the more popular combi boilers.

Combi boilers heat water on demand but the amount of water they can actually deliver to taps is determined by the mains water pressure, flow rate and power. System boilers instead use a hot water cylinder that stores and keeps water hot throughout the day. As long as you remember to program the times you want hot water and the cylinder still has water left in it, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

And, unlike heat only boilers that also require a cold water storage tank to work (normally fitted in the loft), system boilers don't, meaning they're quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system boiler from the Fusion Comet range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW boiler?

The EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW measures 710 mm high and 418 mm wide by a depth of 252 mm.

EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW – non-condensing or condensing?

Electric boilers like the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW do not produce exhaust gases, unlike gas and oil boilers, meaning they do not need to be adapted to be "condensing". For a gas or oil boiler to be condensing, it must have a secondary heat exchanger that recycles the warmth present in exhaust gases to reheat water coming back from the radiators.

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

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

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

Would the environmental impact of installing a EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

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 14.4KW was awarded an efficiency rating of 100% with a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

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

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle – from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW has been awarded a grading of "D" by assessors.

Some electric boilers receive low energy efficiency scores since the electricity used to power them is generated by fossil fuels – considered carbon-intensive – and this is factored into the final rating. This is despite the fact that the actual operating energy efficiency of electric boilers is either 98% or 99% – better than even the most efficient gas or oil boiler.

What is the length of the warranty on the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW?

The EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

The EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new system boiler.

System boilers work similarly to heat only boilers in that they need a hot water cylinder (usually installed in the home’s airing or landing cupboard) to operate. Unlike heat only boilers though, system boilers don’t require a separate cold-water tank, making them a more suitable choice in homes with little or no attic space or where homeowners are planning a loft conversion in the future.

Instead of large cold-water tanks, system boilers use built-in circulating pumps to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. This makes them easier to install from scratch as they have one less component to find room for and fit.

System boilers need to be programmed with the time you want heat and hot water - they don't offer hot water on demand like combi boilers.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

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

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system's output is 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.


How big is the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW?

The EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW boiler measures 710 mm [H] x 418 mm [W] x 252 mm [D] in size.

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

When a boiler is a "condensing" boiler, it uses the warmth present in the exhaust gases created by the burning of gas or oil to reheat cold water coming back from the radiators via a secondary heat exchange. Because electric boilers like the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW don't actually burn fuel in the home, they don't require a flue or a secondary heat exchanger - they're naturally more efficient by design.

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

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing a EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW system help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 Fusion Comet 14.4KW is rated as 100% energy efficient, equivalent to a "D" SEDBUK rating.

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 14.4KW 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.

What length of warranty does the EHC Fusion Comet 14.4KW come with?

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