FAQs

What is the difference between water cooler and water dispenser?

A water cooler cools the water it dispenses using an electric water cooler, whereas a water dispenser simply dispenses the water at room temperature. Both provide you with a clean fresh taste but at different temperatures.

Water coolers are typically larger than water dispensers, and they require an electrical outlet in order to function. Water dispensers do not need to be plugged in, making them more convenient for some people.

How do I choose a water dispenser?

When choosing a water dispenser, it is important to consider the size and type of the unit, as well as the water temperature options that are available. For example, if you are looking for a unit that can be used at a point-of-use, such as under a sink or counter, then you will want to make sure that the unit is the right size for the space. Additionally, if you have specific temperature needs, such as for hot or cold water, then you will want to make sure that the dispenser has the appropriate options.

Does a water cooler use a lot of electricity?

Based on our standard floor standing, bottled water cooler, this model consumes 74W (0.074kW) of electricity for chilled water. If your water cooler is switched on for 8 hours a day, 5-days a week, that's a total of 160 hours over a 4-week month. That would equate to 12.48 kWh (kilowatt hours) of electricity consumed in a month, or about $1.80 at the current US national average of $0.145 per kWh.

How do I disinfect my water cooler?

Clean the inside of the cooler, then let the vinegar solution sit for 30 minutes. Drain the cooler and rinse it thoroughly with clean water. If the vinegar smell is strong, you can rinse the cooler a second time with fresh water.
