Whirlpool has unveiled a new exclusive line of water coolers at retailer Lowe's.
The line includes four different bottled water cooler options, each featuring an adjustable cold water thermostat. Also featured are a specially designed cap said to prevent spillage during installation and a patented water reservoir.
Each bottled cooler includes a 2-year limited warranty and accommodates 3- to 5-gall cooler jugs (Lowe's stocks and delivers Nestle bottled water products).
The Stainless Steel, Refrigerated, and Hot & Cold water coolers in the new line also reportedly offer high-performance ENERGY STAR(R) qualification savings through a built-in TruChill(TM) cooling system, which ensures water temperatures stay between 39 degrees Fahrenheit and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The system is designed to delivers cold water even in high-humidity conditions and when external temperatures exceeding 90 degrees F.
Whirlpool is also offering a junior-sized water cooler that it says can double as a party drink entertaining unit, holding items such as pop and fruit juices.
Lowe's and Whirlpool are also offering a customized special order program that allows consumers to choose their own water cooler body and accent colors, as well as their preferred water temperature options on select models.
The Model WHRA-508BX (pictured) has a stainless steel cabinet and uses the TruChill technology to offer cold and cool water, and has an adjustable thermostat. It has a suggested retail price of U.S. $198.
