14th October 2019
Offering an adequate supply of fresh, running water in the workplace provides many advantages including cost-savings, health benefits, convenience as well as being a more environmentally friendly water solution. Billi Taps are the latest innovation in serving clean water to employees across the country helping everyone stay hydrated and productive throughout the working day.
Good hydration as we all know, contributes to good health, especially when there are filtered water options available. Not only this, but Billi Taps also provide hot, cold and sparkling water options and is the ideal appliance for the office kitchen.
Billi Taps and Office Productivity
There is no denying that Billi taps have a proven record of improving productivity levels in the office. Billi taps make life easier in the workplace by providing constant fresh running water rather than having to wait for the kettle to boil. It also encourages individuals to drink their recommended daily water intake by refilling their bottles or cups and having a fresh supply of water near their desk. Billi taps act as refilling stations and are a great eco-friendly alternative, from using plastic cups, or buying plastic bottles on the way into work. Keeping hydrated at work and drinking our average 2 litres of water a day can help improve our productivity levels and cognitive functions.
Plumed-in water supplies are imperative for improving our physical and mental performance at work especially in warm or hot conditions, when hydration is key. Dehydration can affect health and employee morale, leading to a rise in absences and sickness rates. Some industries where hygiene requirements prevent the regular consumption of food and drink in the working area, are those most in need of Billi tap solutions, where large volumes of water before and after work can be consumed. Reduce time away from the desk too, with Billi taps and regular hydration breaks.
Billi Taps and Versatility
Billi taps offer boiling hot, cold and sparkling water options. They operate at temperatures between 74 degrees and 92 degrees making it easy for tea drinkers, or filter coffee drinkers who need a quick solution. They also feature a safety lock when not in operation to prevent any accidents or spillages of hot water. The red lock icon demonstrates when the safety switch is activated. When in use, simply press the switch to release the lock which will allow full use of boiling water. The system will revert back to safety mode after 8 seconds of non-use. Billi taps are practical and versatile, removing the need to stand around waiting for the office kettle to boil. They produce high volumes of water during periods of high demand, reducing waiting times and improve efficiency in the office.
These taps provide water that is filtered to give a pure odourless, sediment-free taste. They work by harnessing thermodynamic heat-exchange technology to recover waste heat energy ready to be reused to preheat the water entering the hot water tank. They come equipped with a Time Clock, Sleep Mode and Eco Mode so you can make huge savings on your energy bills! This technology allows for peak periods of high demand in the office environment.
The SET Advantage
Billi taps will Save you on Energy and Time which is vital for any workplace. They come with innovative heat exchange technology making it able to harvest waste heat energy that is created as a result of cooling water and using it to heat water ready for use. This means you can make your hot drinks faster rather than waiting for the water to heat from chilled. They can produce an impressive 90-250 cups of boiling water per hour meaning your workforce can remain hydrated without any interruptions. In comparison to using a kettle, a Billi tap uses only 898 W/per hour whereas a kettle uses up to 3500 W/per hour. They are also very sustainable and eco-friendly emitting only 0.74 KG CO emissions in comparison to kettles which produce up to 2.87 KG. Billi taps are also cheaper to run and cost on average 0.11 pence a day rather than 0.42 pence a day.

Billi Taps and Smart-Heating Systems
These systems have the capacity to identify the boiling point during start-up mode and set the temperature accordingly to ensure your boiling water is as close to boiling point as possible and have a factory preset of 98.5 degrees. They also come with a built-in filtration system where water is purified before reaching your cup to prevent any limescale build-up and making your water as clear as possible. Both taste and appearance can affect the overall quality of a good cup of tea and coffee too. Billi’s heat exchange system helps with the energy efficiency ratings and improves recovery time. It does this by making great use of the heat produced by the compressor in the chilling component which is used to pre-heat water entering the boiling chamber.
