EHC Fusion Comet 6KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is EHC’s Fusion Comet 6KW - system, regular or combi?

You may wish to consider installing the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

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.

System boilers do not require a cold water storage tank either, unlike heat only boilers, meaning they're cheaper, quicker and easier to install.

Is a EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for electric than is necessary.

The EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system boiler has an output level of 6 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a EHC Fusion Comet 6KW have?

The EHC Fusion Comet 6KW boiler is 710 mm high, 418 mm wide, and 252 mm deep.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

In order to protect the environment, the government required all new boilers in the UK to be "condensing" from 2005, although this law does not apply to electric boilers. This is because, unlike gas and oil boilers, electric boilers like the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW do not produce hot exhaust gases that condensing boilers then recycle to reheat water coming back from the radiators in a home.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system a good choice for the environment?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would choosing the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for all boilers manufactured in and supplied to the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW was given an energy 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 (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 6KW.

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.

What is the warranty period for the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW?

The EHC Fusion Comet 6KW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

EHC Fusion Comet 6KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

EHC Fusion Comet 6KW - a regular, combi or system boiler?

The EHC Fusion Comet 6KW boiler is a system boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers share many similarities with more traditional heat only boilers, like the need to program the times you want them to provide you with heat and hot water - just use the control panel to do this.

Where they differ from regular boilers is that they do not require a separate cold-water tank - everything is done within the hot water cylinder, which contains built-in circulating pumps. This makes them easier to install as there is one less component to fit and makes them more suitable for properties with no loft space, smaller lofts or for homeowners who are considering converting their loft.

As long as you have programmed your system boiler in advance, you will have the hot water you need ready for whenever you want to use it. Once the water is heated, it will remain available, warm, inside the tank until it’s all used up. It will then draw more water from the mains to start heating so that it can provide heat and hot water for the times you've told the system boiler you need it.

Is a EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

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 6KW system has an output of 6 kW, so which types of property would this EHC Fusion Comet 6KW System boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this EHC Fusion Comet 6KW System boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a EHC Fusion Comet 6KW have?

The EHC Fusion Comet 6KW stands at 710 mm tall, 418 mm wide and 252 mm deep.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

Because electric boilers operate differently from non-electric boilers, they are not covered by the law which requires all boilers to be "condensing". That's because they don't actually burn fuel in your home. Condensing gas and oil boilers recycle the warmth present in exhaust gases created through the burning of fuel to reheat water coming back from radiators.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Will choosing a EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 6KW was awarded an efficiency rating of "100%", equivalent to a "D" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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 6KW 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.

How many years does the warranty period cover on a EHC Fusion Comet 6KW boiler?

The EHC Fusion Comet 6KW is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
