Looking to invest in a new vending solution? From Bravilor to Lincat, in this buying guide we’ll highlight the best commercial water boilers available to rent or purchase on Oasis Coffee & Vending.
When you’re tired of waiting for your turn with the break room kettle, water boilers are an essential tool in any commercial setting! Simple to use and easy to clean, they provide hot, filtered water at the tap of a button. A long-lasting solution for those areas with heavy footfall, they’re large in capacity, automatically reheat and are often delivered with commercial warranties.
What To Look For In A Commercial Water Boiler
Dispensing Point & Capacity
Capacity represents the amount of water that the boiler can carry in its internal tank. A larger capacity solution can take longer to reheat, but smaller capacity will need to be filled more often – if not connected to mains water supply.
Countertop Or Free Standing
For smaller venues, countertop water boilers are an ideal solution. If space isn’t an issue, free standing water boilers are popular configurations.
Mains Connection Or Refill
Some commercial water boilers require constant refilling, whereas others have access to a mains water supply. Mains connection water boilers tend to be best for venues with high footfall, whereas smaller settings may benefit from a refill boiler instead.
Water boilers with built-in filters ensure the highest quality of clean drinking water. They also reduce the wear and tear seen on the inside of the tank. Though, they do require costly filter replacements.
With the cost of living dramatically rising in the UK, you should select a commercial water boiler that is energy efficient. The larger the wattage in power, the less efficient the boiler typically is.
Manual Fill Commercial Water Boilers
Otherwise known as urns, manual fill commercial water boilers are ideal for offices, educational and healthcare settings with limited access to a mains water supply. They’re fit with a lid to easily remove and refill the internal tank.
