If you’re like most homeowners in the St. Louis Metro East area, you use hot water in the kitchen on a daily basis. In fact, you probably spend much of your time in the kitchen waiting for a pot of hot water to heat up on the stove. Wouldn’t it be great to eliminate the waiting and have hot water ready for use right when you need it? An instant hot water dispenser makes this possible!
What is an instant hot water dispenser?
An instant hot water dispenser is a plumbing appliance that’s installed under your sink or in your cabinet. Depending on the model, the dispenser heats water either on-demand or using a small storage tank. A separate faucet is installed on your sink and connected to the dispenser in order to deliver the hot water. Any time you want hot water in your kitchen, you simply have to turn on the tap and it’s ready for you!
What are the benefits of installing an instant hot water dispenser?
- Extremely convenient. Instead of taking out a pot, turning on your stove and waiting for water to boil, an instant hot water dispenser has hot water ready for you the moment you need it at the flick of a switch.
- Energy- and water- efficient. Instant hot water dispensers consume a minimal amount of energy and allow you to cut back on your home’s water consumption because you won’t waste as much water while waiting for a tap to get hot.
- Hotter water than normal tap. Water heaters are typically set at 120 degrees, which is perfectly suitable for most needs in your home. In the kitchen, however, we often need water that’s hotter than that. Most instant hot water dispensers deliver water close to 200 degrees (near the boiling point).
- Many uses. Along with being great for hot beverages like coffee and tea, instant hot water dispensers can be used for making hot cereal, thawing foods, loosening jar lids, cleaning pots and pans and much more!
