Staying hydrated is essential for staying healthy, physically and mentally. But we often need to catch up on the importance of drinking enough water throughout the day, especially when busy with our daily routines. While it may be easy to reach for a sugary drink, a Thirsty Work water cooler for home is a simple way to make staying hydrated convenient and enjoyable.

5 reasons to get a water cooler for home

While you can find a water cooler hydrating the workforces of thousands of businesses, they aren’t just a workplace essential – they can also be a valuable addition to your home. Beyond giving you a shot of refreshing water, a water cooler offers plenty of benefits that can positively impact your health and lifestyle. Here are our five top reasons to get a water cooler for your home.

1. High-quality, pure-filtered water

Our mains-fed water coolers have an advanced filtration system that cleans and purifies your mains tap water to a higher standard. The filtration removes everything that factors in your water’s taste and smell, including contaminants, sediments, and chlorine – even traces of lead and microplastics, giving you 100% safe, great-tasting water. Even our bottled water coolers use spring water naturally filtered through Silurian Limestone for a superior taste.

2. Ultra-convenience

One of the advantages of a water cooler is its ability to dispense chilled, ambient, sparkling, and hot water on demand. Whether you're craving a refreshing glass of cold water on a hot day or need hot water for a cup of tea, a water cooler at home gives you instant access to the water you need without waiting for it to cool down or heat up. You can even have a countertop water cooler for home, giving you the same convenience and saving space. 

3. Encourages hydration

Having a water cooler at home constantly reminds you to drink more (or enough) water. Nicely set up in your kitchen, home office, or living room, you're more likely to grab a glass of water instead of reaching for a less healthy option. By encouraging healthy hydration habits, a water cooler can help improve digestion, skin health, energy levels, and brain function.

4. Cost-effective

If you’re in the habit of buying a lot of bottled water – perhaps because you prefer the taste to tap water or you’re in a hard water area with limescale around your taps and in your kettle – a water cooler for your home could be a more cost-effective option. Instead of buying branded bottled water at inflated prices, a water cooler will give you a continuous supply of clean and filtered water that actually saves you money.

5. Environmentally friendly

Choosing a water cooler at home is eco-friendly and helps towards a plastic-free planet. By reducing the amount of single-use plastic bottles, you’re helping to combat plastic pollution. Plastic bottle production, transportation, and disposal all impact the environment, contributing to carbon emissions and filling landfills and oceans with plastic waste. By choosing a water cooler and using reusable glass or refillable bottles, you can help reduce your carbon footprint and minimise the environmental impact caused by plastic waste.
