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.
Water coolers, hot water dispensers, and water delivery are all great ways to keep your employees happy, healthy, and productive while they’re at work. Contact Mountain Park Spring Water for more information about our water delivery service.
Are you avoiding getting a water cooler for your home or office because you think plastic water bottles are bad for the environment? While it’s true that the number of single-use plastic bottles lying in landfills across the country is damaging our planet, water coolers and bottled water delivery services are a much more eco-friendly option.
Replacing single-use water bottles
The main problem with plastic water bottles is that people are drinking from single-use, 500ml water bottles and then throwing them away, often not recycling them properly. The best way to reduce your use of single-use plastic bottles is to drink glasses of water from the tap, but this isn’t always convenient and some people prefer not to drink tap water.
Water coolers help reduce plastic use by providing fresh water on tap from a larger bottle of water. The plastic bottles fitted to water coolers and purifiers can hold large amounts, depending on the size of the cooler. We provide water bottles that hold up to 5 gallons of water. So, these bottles can provide lots of cups or glasses of water, even for a family or small team of employees.
You can also refill and reuse your plastic water bottles a number of times before having them replaced and recycled. With a water purifier, you can refill your empty bottles from the tap and still enjoy fresh, purified water. Or you can choose to have your bottles replaced regularly with fresh spring water from our water delivery service.
Recycling water cooler bottles
When your water cooler bottle is ready to be replaced, you don’t have to worry about how to recycle it properly or where to take it. We’ll collect your bottles when we deliver your new bottles of water and ensure that they are recycled correctly. This means that your plastic bottle use isn’t contributing to the plastic waste that’s harming our environment.
The plastic in water cooler bottles can be effectively recycled into a wide variety of plastic products, including clothing, insulation, and even more plastic bottles. This article gives more information about how much recycled plastic it takes to create some popular everyday items.
So, if you’re worried about your environmental impact, ditch the single-use water bottles and upgrade to a water cooler and water delivery service. It’s a great way to ensure you have fresh water on hand throughout the day. Get in touch for delivery services across North Carolina and Virginia.
