Don't waste energy, get a hot tap from Insinkerator®

Replacing the kettle with an instant steaming hot water tap from InSinkErator® will not only reduce water wastage in the home, but can also help reduce the rising cost of utility bills.
 
According to the Energy Saving Trust, 40 per cent of households boil the kettle at least four times a day, with 75 per cent admitting to boiling more water than they need1; accounting for a significant amount of water and energy wasted every year. Homeowners can save water, and time, with a steaming hot water tap from InSinkErator®.
