How Cost-Effective is a Chilled Water Tap?

Are you tired of opening the fridge to find your cold water jug empty? 

We know what it's like to live with others (or just yourself!), and the constant frustration when you open the fridge to find an empty jug… 

Luckily, we have a solution that saves you time and money (and frustration) - a chilled water tapOur chilled water systems are a cost-effective and eco-friendly option that lasts longer than that measly water jug. 

Saves energy costs 

Think of it this way, every time you or a family member goes to get a glass of cold water the fridge is opened for at least a few seconds, maybe even a minute all up. And each time it's opened, warm air enters so the fridge has to work harder to cool itself down again. 

According to Home Energy Magazine, opening your fridge accounts for 7% of a fridge’s total energy use. 

Furthermore, according to The Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences at the University of Florida, if you aren’t conscious of your fridge-opening habits, you could be wasting about 50 - 120 kWh of energy per year. That’s 20 runs of a dishwasher or up to 50 runs of a washing machine!

So the fewer times you need to open your fridge, the more you’ll be saving! 

Save on bottled water

Everybody knows that plastic is detrimental to the environment but did you know that it’s much more expensive to buy bottled water than run tap water? 

While tap water costs roughly $3 per 1000 litres, bottled water is 1000 times more expensive, costing roughly $3 for only one litre

If you currently choose bottled water for its convenience, you’re missing out on the convenience of cold water straight from the tap with our cold water dispensers

Making the switch from bottled water to our chilled water system will save you heaps and reduce your impact on the environment - win-win!
