EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW a combi, system or regular boiler?

The EHC Fusion Comet 9KW boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work, with the most popular installation location for cylinders being in an airing or landing cupboard. Unlike heat only boilers though, they don't require a separate cold water tank to go in the attic, making them suitable if roof space is at a premium or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers use (often built-in) circulating pumps to distribute hot water to your taps and radiators. Fitting is cheaper and quicker too because you don't need to find room for a water tank. Unlike with a combi boiler, which heats water it draws from the mains instantly, you have to program a system boiler with the times you want hot water and heating.

Is a EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system boiler right for my house or apartment?

Whether this EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your electric bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 9 kW?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW?

The EHC Fusion Comet 9KW occupies a space of 710 mm high by 418 mm wide and 252 mm deep.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW a non-condensing or 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 9KW do not produce hot exhaust gases that condensing boilers then recycle to reheat water coming back from the radiators in a home.

Is the system EHC Fusion Comet 9KW boiler energy efficient?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system be a suitable choice?

All boilers manufactured in the UK or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The EHC Fusion Comet 9KW has been awarded 100% for its energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "D" rating.

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

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

Electricity generation currently involves burning fossil fuels, which is carbon-intensive. This is factored into the ERP scores of many electric boilers, although virtually every electric boiler has an energy efficiency in operation of near 100%.

The ERP rating for the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW is "D".

Is there a warranty on the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system boiler if it breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System boiler covers you for 2 years.

EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

EHC Fusion Comet 9KW - a regular, combi or system boiler?

Looking for a electric system boiler for your flat or house? Then the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW may be an option you should consider.

As with a heat only boiler, a system boiler requires the installation of a hot water cylinder but they do not need a cold water tank to work. This makes them suitable choices for homeowners planning a loft conversion or for properties without a loft or very limited attic space.

The primary heating and hot water system components are built in to system boilers and you can use the control panel to set the times that you wish your heating and hot water to be available. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day, but if you don't set your timer, heat and hot water will not be available instantly.

A system boiler can supply multiple taps and showers simultaneously and is suitable for both large families and properties with more than one bathroom - combi boilers struggle to do this.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher electric bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system is 9 kW, so which types of property is this EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System boiler appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW

The size of the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW boiler is 710 mm tall, 418 mm wide, and 252 mm deep.

Fusion Comet 9KW – non-condensing or 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 9KW 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 system EHC Fusion Comet 9KW boiler energy efficient?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about 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.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

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 9KW scored an efficiency rating of 100% and a SEDBUK band rating of D.

The boiler is however penalised in its ERP rating for being powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan, including during the manufacturing process and when they're in actual use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage the manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW is "D".

Many electric boilers are usually rated fairly low in ERP tests and unfairly so. Operational energy efficiency for electric boilers is actually around the 98-99% level in most cases. The reason they're marked down so severely is that the electricity used to power these boilers is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into their scores - not exactly a like-for-like comparison, in our opinion.

Does the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system boiler come with a warranty?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW boiler.
