|We’ve previously looked at how water coolers in offices help to boost productivity among other benefits. In this blog, we’re looking at the other side of the water dispensing coin – hot water dispensers. Could your office benefit from installing a hot water dispenser? Let’s look at some of the advantages of installing one.|
How do hot water dispensers work?
A hot water dispenser is connected to your mains water source. When you turn on the tap, water travels into the machine. Here, it is filtered and then heated by the heating element of your hot water dispenser. This process is much faster than that of boiling water in a kettle. Hot or boiling water will then come out of the tap that regular water normally comes from. This process takes just a few seconds, providing almost instant hot, filtered water delivery.
It will save employees time
We’ve already said how quickly a hot water dispenser takes. Now, think about the number of times employees boil the kettle during the work day, for cups of tea and coffee or for cooking their lunch. Using a hot water dispenser instead could save 2-3 minutes each time hot water is needed. This might not sound like a lot, but it certainly adds up to a lot of saved time throughout the week.
Imagine you’ve got 10 employees and each one makes 3 hot drinks in a day. That’s a total of 90 minutes per day saved across all employees, adding up to a lot more productive working time. It’ll also save employees time on their lunch break, allowing them to fully enjoy their break rather than standing around waiting for a kettle to boil.
Hot water dispensers are energy efficient
Compared to electric kettles, hot water dispensers are really energy efficient. They use less energy to heat water than kettles do, and kettles can lose a great deal of heat through their walls, leading to wasted energy. Greater energy efficiency helps to save your company money and is also good for your reputation as an eco-friendly organization.
They’re safe to use
You might be worried about the dangers of having hot water available on tap, especially if you’re considering installing a hot water dispenser for a family home water service. Don’t worry, because you can get hot water dispensers that are installed with safety locks. This will prevent you from releasing hot water from the tap unless you intend to do so
