Blow hot, blow cold. At home or at work, enjoy your favorite drink. RentED or bought, these water coolers make work bearable.
What? Tap Water dispensed hot and cold?
Yes. At work or play, you can have cold tap water anytime, not from the fridge or the hot water bottles, but from cool countertop water coolers. You can even have coffee and cold juice from the same device.
Countertop Water coolers are convenient to have around in the workplace. Workers need not lug their vacuum jugs filled with cold or hot drinks to office. The bottleless water coolers assure everyone enough water to go around since this is connected to the main water and electricity supply.
The newer devices are efficient and cost effective. If you are planning to install several units in your office, consider the advantages and disadvantages of bottleless and bottled water coolers. Whatever your choice, you are assured of cold and hot water at all times.
Bottleless vs. bottled countertop water coolers
The traditional wall mounted water fountains were meant only for cold water. The new countertop water coolers provide a choice of hot and cold water. Instead of drinking directly from the top of the streaming water from the spout (which is impossible with the modern models), you have to bring along your paper cups or mugs.
Your choice is now narrowed down to the bottleless and bottled water cooler since water fountains are out of the race. Bottleless water coolers are plumbed into the main water supply. The supply of hot and cold water is assured at all times. With this type of water dispensing system, you don’t have to commit to a year’s contract with the water supply company, so there will be no need at all to call the company for a delivery, or line up all those empty plastic jugs down the hall for pick-up. The bottled countertop water coolers work just the same as the plumbed-in version. The letdown? When the water bottles run out, you have to wait for your drink until the next delivery.
Is your water safe?
In design, both are sleek and functional, easy to use and convenient. However plumbed-in water dispensers cannot be transferred to another spot. The bottled version can have casters for easy relocation, especially during those office affairs that require more space.
Water from both dispensers is purified. The plumbed-in version has a built-in filtration system, while the water supplied by the water supply company has passed through strict standards of water purification, so in this department, there is a tie.
Will it cost?
You have to shell out $ 8 for a water bottle and a monthly fee for the rental of the bottled countertop water coolers. With the bottleless dispenser, you only pay the monthly rental, thus you save a lot on the bottled water bill. Office workers will use up 1.5 liters of water daily. Since they are out most of the time, your water bill will remain at the usual range.
When it comes to cost and installation, there is a difference. The plumbed-in dispenser will cost extra for the installation of the plumbing. The installer will need a 13 amp socket within 2 meters from the unit so you also have make this ready for easy installation.
Depending on your needs, you can get any type of countertop water coolers. Weigh the pros and cons. Cold and hot water available anytime is a big convenience for everybody, and that includes YOU.
