Ah, winter; the season of crisp morning air, early sunsets and, if you work in an office, a queue for the kettle that is longer than the wait for the next episode of Game of Thrones. With many offices not being totally geared for winter (imagine shivering employees secretly swapping their work shoes for slippers under their desks), warm drinks are all that many office workers can hope for in terms of warmth. With this being the case, waiting ages for a cup of coffee simply won’t do. Enter the office hero: the instant hot water dispenser.
If your office is a bit on the drafty side and central heating just isn’t on the cards, consider the benefits of a hot and cold water dispenser. Here are two big ones:
How a Hot and Cold Water Cooler Will Benefit Your Office:
1. Employee Happiness and Productivity
Let’s be honest; being cold can make someone miserable. Employees that are too cold at their desks aren’t going to be inspired to do their work. This can be solved with the simplicity of a piping hot cup of coffee, but having to wait ages to be able to use the office kettle isn’t going to help matters.
This can be easily remedied with an instant hot water dispenser. While kettles can only boil a few cups’ worth of water at a time, and take a long time to heat the water, water from a hot water dispenser is always hot and in abundant supply. This way, employees always have hot water when they need it and the company doesn’t lose valuable time as employees queue to use the kettle. It’s win-win!
2. Energy Savings
It may only be a small appliance, but if your run the kettle ‘round the clock you’re going to rack up some pretty significant electricity bills. A hot and cold water dispenser, on the other hand, requires less energy to run. This means a heap of savings over and above the fact that hot water dispensers are more convenient than kettles.
A Hot and Cold Water Cooler Is the Ultimate Office Accessory
One of the best things about a dispenser that offers both hot and cold water is the fact that it can be used all year ‘round. The hot water will be welcome during the winter months and then, as the sun starts packing more heat into its rays, the cold water will be the refreshment of choice around the office.
If the unwelcome cold is starting to creep into your office this winter, it’s definitely time to get hold of a hot water dispenser!
