Hot Water Dispenser
Kettles can be expensive to run, especially when you think about the fact that households that use kettles have higher electricity bills than households that don't own one. The hot water dispenser has become more popular in recent years, saving time and money with instant hot water. Therefore instead of pouring water into a kettle and waiting for it to heat up you can just turn on a tap.
Where would you find instant hot water taps?
Just like the good old fashioned water cooler, instant hot water taps have been used in office buildings for a long time. As they save staff time, instead of standing waiting for a kettle to boil they could be getting on with important work tasks. This is not the only reason however; they also save space and the inconvenience of extra wiring.
For the same reason as office buildings, hospitals have used instant hot water taps for a long while, mainly in their staff room areas,
More and more modern households are fitted with a hot water dispenser. They are not as common as kettles however but they are becoming more widespread.
