Instant hot/cold water dispensers save time and money. Imagine being able to walk to the sink and immediately have 190-degree hot water so for a soothing cup of tea. You will be able to quickly blanch vegetables, melt chocolate, and cook pasta. With the scalding water you can easily loosen jar lids, remove labels, melt off wax residue, polish silver and warm plates or baby bottles. The cold function of the dispenser provides refreshing ice-cold water right at the sink. You’ll never again need to keep water jugs in the fridge or wait for ice cubes to chill a cold drink because with a hot/cold water dispenser everything will be at your fingertips.
If you have a separate bar sink or a dual kitchen sink, installing an instant hot/cold water dispenser next to the existing faucet on your sink will allow you to produce up to 60 cups of steaming water per hour. The water is heated inside of a separate heating tank that is installed under the sink. There is a thermostat on the tank that you can set the temperature in a range from 140 -190 degrees.
Heating tanks are included with the purchase of a hot/cold water dispenser. The tank easily fits under any type of sink installed in a kitchen. However, you may want to compare the dimensions of the tank to the size of the cabinet under your sink. If you need to replace tanks or faucets, then make sure replacement parts match. When you choose a tank, you will want to compare the dimensions of the tank to the size of the cabinet area under your sink.
One of the many benefits of a hot/cold water dispenser is that you will not be draining water from your hot water heater. The water at the sink will not lose heat as it travels through the pipes, and the water heater will not need to fire up as often. Also, there won’t be a need to use the gas or electricity to heat a burner on the stove. Thus you will use fewer dishes and pans, which means you’ll use your dishwasher less often.
A hot/cold dispenser can be connected to a water filtration system and operate as a point-of-use faucet. This is a good idea if you have hard water or water supplied from municipal sources, because you will have water that tastes clean without any minerals or dissolved solids.
There are many styles of hot/cold water dispensers that can be installed in your kitchen. You can select the design to match the existing look of your kitchen or modernize your fixtures and select a style to match. Finishes include chrome, bronze, polished nickel, satin or brushed nickel. Be sure to consider how the use of these fittings will revitalize the look of your renovated kitchen.
