How does an Instant Hot Water Tap work?

An instant boiling water tap works abit like an electric shower. Water still comes in the normal fashion, from your main’s supply but it is simply heated using a boiler, the boiler will heat water up to temperature of between 75 to 98 degrees celsius. Kettles are most definitely a thing in the past, thanks to instant boiling water taps and their modern technology.

Instant Boiling Water Tap FAQs

Where is the boiler located?

Whilst the sink and tap live above your kitchen counter, the boiler usually lives underneath saving you a lot of space, however you will need to be prepared to lose the extra cupboard space.

Are Instant Boiling Water Taps safe?

We can assure you that Instant Boiling Water Taps are safe, to be precise – they are more safe than using a kettle. Kettles have more dangers as they can easily knock over. Instant Hot Water Taps stick to only one place and that’s the sink itself! Kettles usually are warm from the outside making the Instant Hot Water Tap a winner as they are insulated against heat.

Are Instant Boiling Water Taps expensive to run?

Boiling water taps are quite cheap to run. Kettles usually cost a few pence to run (per boil!) whereas instant boiling water taps only cost a few pence to run per day, a huge difference when you add it up over time. The boiling water tap is also energy efficient as you will be saving electricity, water and more ultimately money – especially if you use a water meter that charges you based on usage.
