In the market, we have the option of a cooling dispenser and a simple water dispenser.

This dispenser is applicable in the office, kitchen, living room, or in restaurants to serve both hot and cold water based on the need. Standing dispensers occupy some space, and there are the tabletop/ countermodels. The electricity consumption of the cooling dispensers is dependent on the usage.
Dispensing water from the gallon, water bottle pumps use charged electric power. This model requires the user to load the water gallon and consume negligible electricity units, hence lowering costs. They take up lesser space since it is positioned over the water can. It is charged using a USB. These are suitable for people who prefer drinking water at room temperature. Everyone has a different taste when it comes to water, some like warm water, others cold, and some people love boiling water.
A top-loading countertop water dispenser has a simple faucet to dispense water and occupies lesser space since the water can is loaded on top of the dispenser. It lacks the heating and cooling option hence no power consumption.
