Looking for instant hot water from a sink, bar, or other location? We can help.

The InSinkErator company is mostly known to be the top seller of quality garbage disposals. They are also the manufacturer that developed a product called an InstaHot.

The InstaHot instant hot water dispenser is a miniature faucet that is installed next to your main kitchen faucet, and it delivers very hot water to your kitchen, near a bar sink, in the breakroom of a business, or wherever it might be put to good use.

There are now multiple manufacturers producing hot water dispensing systems, but the InSinkErator remains the most dominant.

The InSinkErator hot water dispenser has a variety of uses to simplify all your kitchen cooking and cleaning needs. The dispensed water is hotter than the hot water that comes from your main tap.

It’s not at boiling water temperature because that would turn it into steam. The convenience is that you don’t have to go to your cupboard to get a pot and fill it up with water, then take it to the stove and heat it up. You save a lot of time in the kitchen preparing meals and multiple cleaning uses.

Also, it is extremely convenient if you are an avid tea or coffee drinker. The small tap is connected to a small water heater underneath it inside of your kitchen cabinet.

St Paul Pipeworks has recently been working on installing InstaHot hot water dispensing systems in multiple Barnes & Noble locations in the Minneapolis and St Paul metro areas.

Most of the local Barnes & Nobles have a Starbucks Cafe in them and InstaHot to meet their menu needs. If you are interested in having a hot water dispenser installed in your home or are just looking for a quality plumber in the St. Paul and Minneapolis metro area, give St Paul Pipeworks a call today.

FAQs About Instant Hot Water Dispensers

Q: What is an instant hot water dispenser, and how do they work?

A: An instant hot water dispenser is a convenient kitchen appliance that provides near-boiling water on demand. It consists of a compact unit installed beneath your sink and connected to your water supply. When you turn on the dispenser’s tap, cold water is rapidly heated to near-boiling temperatures using a heating element. This hot water is then ready for immediate use, making tasks like brewing tea, preparing instant meals, and cleaning greasy dishes more efficient.

Q: Are instant hot water dispensers energy-efficient?

A: Yes, instant hot water dispensers are generally energy-efficient. They use advanced heating technology to heat only the water that’s being dispensed rather than heating and maintaining an entire tank of hot water like traditional water heaters. This “on-demand” heating approach reduces energy consumption and minimizes standby heat loss, making these dispensers more eco-friendly and cost-effective.

Q: Is the installation process complex? Can I install it myself?

A: Installing an instant hot water dispenser is best handled by a professional plumber. While some models may appear straightforward to install, ensuring proper connections to your water supply, electrical system, and even your sink is important. Professional plumbers have the expertise to properly install the unit, ensure compliance with local codes, and address any potential issues that may arise during installation.

Q: Are instant hot water dispensers safe to use?

A: Yes, instant hot water dispensers are designed with safety features to prevent accidents. Most models have child-proof handles or require a specific motion to activate the hot water flow, reducing the risk of accidental scalding. Additionally, some units have adjustable temperature settings, allowing you to choose the desired hot water temperature that suits your needs while preventing excessively high temperatures.

Q: Do instant hot water dispensers require maintenance?

A: Instant hot water dispensers generally have low maintenance requirements. However, it’s recommended to periodically flush the system to remove any mineral buildup that could affect its performance. Some manufacturers also offer water filters that can be installed to improve water quality and extend the unit’s lifespan. Regular maintenance by a professional plumber can help ensure the dispenser operates smoothly and efficiently over its lifespan.
