Is a filtered/hot water dispenser cost effective?

In addition to style and convenience, a filtration system is also a cost-effective alternative to bottled water.  Existing instant hot water and cold water filters cost less than $100 per year.  The average household spends more than $400 per year on bottled water.  Each hot water dispenser uses less energy than a 40-watt light bulb.
