EHC Fusion Comet 6KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a electric system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW boiler may be worth considering.

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 6KW system be a suitable choice of 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 6KW system outputs at a maximum of 6 kW, so which types of property would this EHC Fusion Comet 6KW 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.


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 condensing or non-condensing?

In 2005, the Government passed a law meaning that all gas and oil boilers had to be "condensing" boilers. What this means is that they all now must feature a secondary heat exchanger that recycles the gas and oil exhaust emissions to heat water coming back from the radiators, among other tasks. Electric boilers like the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW do not create exhaust gases and therefore do not need this modification.

How environmentally friendly is the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system?

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.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Will installing a EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The EHC Fusion Comet 6KW was awarded an efficiency rating of 100% and a band rating of "D".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

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 6KW 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.

What is the length of the warranty on the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW boiler.

EHC Fusion Comet 6KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

The EHC Fusion Comet 6KW is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work but, unlike heat only boilers, they don't require a cold water tank. This can be advantageous if you live in an apartment, lack attic space, or are planning a loft conversion.

System boilers allow you to set the times when you want hot water to be available. Heated water is stored in the cylinder and can be used throughout the day. With a system boiler, if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for hot water.

The constant supply of hot water from the cylinder ensures that you can have multiple taps and showers in use without a loss of pressure to each point (something combi boilers struggle with). This makes a system boiler suitable for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system boiler from the Fusion Comet range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system's output at 6 kW, which types of property would this EHC Fusion Comet 6KW System boiler be most appropriate for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this EHC Fusion Comet 6KW System boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW?

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

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

For just over 15 years, all gas and oil boilers installed in the UK must by law be "condensing" boilers. This means that all non-electric boilers must use the warmth present in exhaust gases to, among other tasks, heat the cold water coming back from radiators via a secondary heat exchanger. Because electric boilers like the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW do not burn fuel or create exhaust gases, they do not need to be modified and are therefore exempt from the legislation passed in 2005.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system rated as environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look 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 6KW was awarded an efficiency rating of 100% with a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

The boiler is marked down in its ERP rating for running on electricity.

The aim of the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use, right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW from the Fusion Comet range is "D".

Some electric boilers receive low ERP scores because the electricity they use for power is generated by burning fossil fuels, which creates high levels of carbon emissions that escape into the atmosphere. This is an unfair comparison because, in reality, virtually every electric boiler has an energy efficiency in operation of near 100%.

How many years' warranty does the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW system come with?

On the EHC Fusion Comet 6KW, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
