Water coolers have made the transition from the office into the home, as a convenient appliance that encourages everyone in the household to drink more water. But with so many types, sizes and models of water coolers on the market, it’s hard to know which water cooler is just right for you, your family and your home.

We’ve decided to take a look at the various water coolers available in the industry in an effort to help to you decide what the best water cooler will be for your home. Take a step closer to sip-filled satisfaction, and read on.

Water Cooler vs. Water Dispenser

While all water coolers are also water dispenser, not all water dispenser are water coolers. These are the two basic types of water dispenser – one which also cools the water that is dispenses, and one which doesn’t. Both can usually accommodate the standard water bottles in their varying sizes, and it comes down to your own preference as to whether the option of chilled drinking water is a must or not for a water cooler for your home.

Countertop vs. Freestanding

When the idea of buying a water cooler for your home arises, it can be difficult to imagine where exactly it will fit. Water coolers are generally available as counter top or floor standing units. When deciding to buy a water cooler, decide beforehand where you will want to place it. A countertop unit can be placed on a counter or table that still allows for you to change the water bottle, if it has one, and easily get water. Both styles of water cooler for your home will require electricity, so take note of where the electrical outlets in your home are stationed and then decide what unit works best for you.

Cold & Hot Water Faucets

As is the nature with water coolers, the one you choose for your home will have at least one faucet, but it may also have another faucet for hot water. Although not able to reach boiling temperature, this faucet can provide water warm enough to make a cup of tea or hot chocolate. However, it is only a feature you should invest in it if’s something you’ll actually use.
