Do you realise how much water you are wasting without even realising it? An in-depth survey* commissioned by InSinkErator® has revealed that more than 78 per cent of people say they consider the environment when they are selecting a new kitchen or buying new appliances; but how they use their appliances is very often unfriendly to the environment!
One of the most telling aspects of the findings is that most people are harming the environment through sheer absent-mindedness. More than 58 per cent of those questioned overfill their kettles, wasting gallons of water a year, as well as using unnecessary electricity. Most put this down to habit or simply not thinking about it.
More than 66 per cent of people surveyed also owned up to running their hot water tap unnecessarily, with nearly 20 per cent admitting that they realise this habit is financially costly and environmentally wasteful. Only 33 per cent claimed to be ‘hugely aware’ of the cost and the environmental issue.
The installation of a competitively priced steaming hot water tap from InSinkErator® would eliminate the need for a kettle, as well as addressing other wastage issues.
The InSinkErator® range of top quality steaming hot water taps provide instant hot water and are both convenient and super-efficient. In the UK, millions of litres of water are wasted each day and in many different ways. With an InSinkErator® steaming hot water tap, 98°C filtered, hot water is delivered to you on demand and this immediate availability means little to no water waste. There are many other advantages too. Cooking utensils can be cleaned on an efficient, one-off basis, while instant food and drinks and other products requiring hot water can be prepared without the need to heat water in a kettle, leaving the worktop clear and free of trailing leads.
Ashley Munden, Managing Director, Europe InSinkErator® says: “Our extensive survey was a real eye opener on how water is needlessly wasted by millions of households every day. Many people aren’t even aware that they are doing it, while those that are put it out of their minds. Our steaming hot water taps are often perceived as a luxury item, yet they are competitively priced products that are genuinely effective in protecting the environment and saving our customers money.”
