The Fusion Comet is a system electric boiler designed and manufactured by the Electric Heat Company. The wall-mounted finish and 6kW output rating make it suitable for smaller homes and flats.
Why choose an electric boiler?
Heating our homes with fossil fuels simply isn’t sustainable. Natural gas and oil might be effective but burning them releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, a key cause of climate change. Turning to electric heating is one alternative and doesn’t come without its benefits: doesn’t produce emissions, there’s no risk of a carbon monoxide leak in the home, has a quick response to the central heating going on, flexible installation and fewer moving parts so there’s less chance of it developing a fault.
How efficient is a Fusion Comet electric boiler?
These are highly efficient boilers that are able to turn all of the fuel into heat for your home, which is why they have an efficiency rating of 100%. As a result, the ErP D-rating can appear confusing but this is because electricity production is currently considered carbon intensive.
Where can electric boilers be installed?
As electric boilers have no need for a flue, you have near complete flexibility as to where to have the Fusion Comet installed. Plus, as a compact unit, it won’t take up much space at all.
Is a Fusion Comet suitable for my home?
A 6kW output rating makes this model best suited to smaller homes and flats with a single bathroom and around 4 radiators.
Does the Fusion Comet range include any alternative options?
As well as this 6 kW model, the Fusion Comet range also includes a 9kW model (6 radiators), a 12KW boiler (8 radiators) and a 14.4kW unit (10 radiators).
What are the key features of the Fusion Comet electric boiler?
Features of the Fusion Comet electric boiler include an inbuilt programmer with system diagnostics, a wireless thermostat, reduced boiler cycling which could save up to 15% energy, energy saving smart pump, full power modulation, stainless steel heat exchanger, a high current thermal cut-out, digital pressure gauge, magnetic filter tank, solar DHW connection and an inbuilt controller which gives you easy access to the boiler settings to allow you to have maximum control over the unit.
How long is the warranty period?
Fusion Comet boilers are available with a 2 year warranty as standard, while the hot water cylinder has a 10 year warranty.
