What Is Instant Hot Water?

If you find yourself heating water frequently for tea, instant soups, or other hot beverages, you will benefit from having an instant hot water dispenser in your home. These dispensers use a miniature water heater tank to deliver 200-degree-Fahrenheit water whenever you need it. Find out more to decide if having the convenience of instant hot water is an affordable luxury that you need in your home.

Can’t a Tankless Water Heater Give Instant Hot Water?

While tankless water heaters provide hot water quickly, the water still must travel from the heater to the faucet. This travel time prevents them from providing instant hot water. You still will have to turn on a hot water tap and wait for the water to heat before you can use it.

Plus, home water heaters typically only heat water to 120 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent scalds when bathing or showering. This temperature does not meet the minimum requirements for brewing tea or other hot beverages. For food use, the hot water needs to be just below boiling, which is 212 degrees Fahrenheit.

Why Can’t I Just Boil Water?

Boiling water in an electric kettle or on a stovetop both require extra time and energy. Depending on the method you use, you could wait between two and ten minutes to get perfectly heated water. While boiling water may work in a pinch, it does not offer the same speed or temperature control as an instant hot water dispenser.

I Don’t Have Space on My Counter for Any New Appliances

The best part about an instant hot water dispenser is that it won’t take up counter space. In fact, the small tank hides under the sink, and the dispenser fits onto your sink. A hot water dispenser system requires only as much energy to operate as a 40-watt light bulb.

With the hot water dispenser, you also have a cold-water side that provides you with regular tap water when needed. To reduce waste, you must hold the hot water handle to dispense the water. However, the cold-water side will stay on until you move the handle back into place.
