Electric vs Non-Electric Water Dispensers

There are lots of different choices when it comes to buying or renting a water dispenser. You’re sure to find one that suits your needs, whether you’re looking for a home or office water service. This is important when you think about how important water is in our lives. One key decision you need to make is whether to go for an electric water dispenser or a non-electric one.

Electric water dispensers
When it comes to functionality, electric water dispensers are top of the list. Many models are available that act as a water cooler and heater, too. They provide you with hot and cold water from separate taps, not just room temperature water. Dispensers can also have filtration systems to ensure that the water you’re drinking is clean.

If you’re worried about the cost of your electricity bill rising, you might be surprised at how much a water dispenser can save you. Just think about how often you boil the kettle or how long you spend boiling water on the stove. Having hot water readily available from a handy dispenser can prove to be much more energy efficient. It will also save you money on regularly buying bottled water too.

Electric water dispensers can be plumbed into your water supply, giving you a constant supply of filtered water without the hassle of changing water bottles out on a regular basis.

Non-electric water dispensers
While non-electric water dispensers might not have all the bells and whistles of electric ones, they have many benefits. They’re compact and easy to transport, so they’re ideal for taking on vacation with you. Since they don’t require electricity either, they’re even perfect for camping trips, providing you with a reliable source of clean water wherever you are.

Non-electric dispensers can also be easier to clean and maintain, as you don’t have to worry about the dangers of electricity when you’re washing them. You can read our tips on how to care for your water dispenser if you need help with this.

If you’re shopping on a tight budget, then non-electric water dispensers are a great option. They’re cheaper to purchase and require less money to run. As they don’t use electricity, non-electric water dispensers are also better for the environment, and they make much less noise than electric ones.
