Considerations When Choosing Office Water Coolers

A water cooler can be a tremendous asset for any office or business, but not all water coolers are alike.

There are three main considerations you need to assess before you sign a leasing agreement.

  • The Capacity:

Choosing office water coolers that have too large or too small a capacity can be problematic for your business. There are many sizes of water coolers for office use, so you need to determine what capacity is best suited to your needs. In order to assess this, you need to think about how many people will be using the cooler.

Generally, a twenty litre cooler will provide roughly a hundred cups of water. Obviously, you won’t want this water sitting around for weeks on end. So if you only have one or two employees, this is likely to be a little too large. Remember that you can usually tailor your water delivery according to your needs, so if the capacity of your cooler is a little small, it can be compensated for with more frequent water deliveries.

  • Unit Size:

Another important consideration is the physical space that office water coolers require. Not all work premises have the wide spaces of an open plan office. Your premises may struggle for floor space, which means that a benchtop unit would be better suited to your needs. It is worth assessing the sizes and styles of unit available to check which one is the right size for your business.

There are slimline units, tabletop models, and conventional free standing coolers. Bear in mind that your cooler may need to move at a later date. One of the benefits of a bottled cooler rather than a plumbed in model is that they can be moved. So, consider the space in other areas of your business premises where the cooler may be needed.

  • Design Features:

Bottled water coolers for office use have come a long way in recent years. There are now far more choices than a standard top loading coolers. You will find some interesting design features to make the cooler more practical. For example, there are now models that have spill protection.

This eliminates the risk of water being spilled as you replace the bottle. You could also consider a cooler that also dispenses hot or warm water. This means that your team can not only enjoy a delicious cold drink but could prepare tea, coffee, instant noodles or even soup directly from the water cooler. This can be particularly beneficial in premises where kitchen facilities are limited.
