EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

The EHC Fusion Comet 9KW 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.

Should I install a EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system boiler in my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher electric bills.

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.


EHC Fusion Comet 9KW - size in millimetres

The EHC Fusion Comet 9KW measures 710 mm in height by 418 mm in width by 252 mm in depth.

Fusion Comet 9KW – condensing or non-condensing?

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 9KW 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 9KW system an energy-efficient boiler?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of 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.

Would choosing the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK after April 2018 must achieve an "A" grade on the SEDBUK rating system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The EHC Fusion Comet 9KW was awarded an efficiency rating of 100% with 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 9KW.

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.

Am I covered if the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system boiler breaks down?

The EHC Fusion Comet 9KW boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.

EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

The EHC Fusion Comet 9KW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new system boiler.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - normally fitted inside an airing or landing cupboard or similar spot. Unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a separate cold water tank, making them a more suitable choice if you have no loft, lack space in the attic, or are planning to do a loft conversion.

These boilers distribute hot water around your home to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulating pumps and they're easier to install as there is one less component (the water tank) to find room for. A system boiler needs to be programmed to tell it what times you want heat and hot water - unlike combi boilers, they don't provide hot water on demand.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system boiler from the Fusion Comet range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property 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 has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your electric bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system's output at 9 kW, which types of property would this EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System boiler be most appropriate for?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this EHC Fusion Comet 9KW System boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW

The measurements of the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW are 710 mm by 418 mm by 252 mm.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW condensing or non-condensing?

Electric boilers like the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW are more economical in their fuel use than non-electric boilers. This is because electric boilers do not need to recycle the warmth contained in exhaust gases created from the burning of gas and oil, therefore they do not need to be modified to be condensing.

Is the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system good for the environment?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

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.

Would choosing a EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” rating and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - 88% and 89% energy efficiency was given a “B” rating and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the EHC Fusion Comet 9KW was rated at 100% with a SEDBUK grading of "D".

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

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

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

How can it be so low? The use of fossil fuels in generating the electricity that powers the boiler is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into the ERP scores of electric boilers. This is, in our opinion, unfair because the actual operating energy efficiency of electric boilers is 98% or 99% - better than even the most efficient gas or oil boiler.

Am I covered if my EHC Fusion Comet 9KW system boiler breaks down?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new EHC Fusion Comet 9KW are covered by a 2 year warranty.
