Cold Water: Xowater.com coolers use a top quality, quiet convection-cooled condenser. This condenser is an internal, spring-mounted, hermetically-sealed compressor with automatic overload protector. No lubrication is needed, and the refrigerant is controlled accurately by a capillary tube. The temperature is controlled by an adjustable thermostat with an ‘off’ position that is easily accessible on the rear of the unit. The temperature of the cold water dispensed is typically between 40 and 44 degrees. To rate cold water capacity/recovery, there is an “apples to apples” test used by the Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Institute (ARI). In a room that is 70 degrees, you measure how many 3-ounce cups of <50 degree water per hour. BottleLess Direct coolers provide 53 cups in a 70 degree room.
Hot Water: The 520 watt heating element ensures precise temperature control. The cooler can provide 45 6-ounce cups of 180+ degree water per hour. The cooler comes with a hot tank on/off switch for locations who do not want instant hot water.
