The author compares the instant water boiling technology and the use of electric teapots in the article. Strengths and weaknesses of the instant water boiling technology and its integration into the internal water supply system are also demonstrated.
Aqua Hot 98 instant hot water dispenser is capable of heating up to 60 cups in an hour, while consuming 20 % of the electric power needed to boil the water on a stove or in an electric tea pot. Besides, the water is ready for consumption at any moment of time.
The amount of water heated by the instant hot water dispenser is the one that is needed at a particular moment of time; electric power and water consumption rates are efficient enough to guarantee substantial reduction of utility payments.
Given the fact that Aqua Hot 98 instant hot water dispenser is also capable of supplying cold filtered water, the proposed technology is more economical and ecological that bottled water supply, as plastic bottles accumulated at junkyards damage the environment.
The weakness of the proposed technology is its cost, as it is far more expensive than an electric kettle.
