Finding the Best College Hand Dryer
A key part of choosing the best hand dryers for a college is ensuring that they meet the specific needs of students and faculty. Modern hand dryers such as the Mitsubishi Electric Wave range feature efficient, quiet designs that help to reduce energy use and noise levels while maintaining excellent hygiene. This means that they help to reduce cost, prevent the transmission of illness, and prevent disturbance to students in nearby teaching areas.
Reducing Energy Costs and Environmental Impact
Large colleges can have several thousand students in attendance. This means a heavy load on bathroom facilities, and it is possible that the daily use of hand dryers across the campus may be as high as 5,000 times. Over the course of a year, traditional hand dryers would have an annual cost of more than £16,000 and if paper towels are used, more than 15 tonnes of waste would be sent to landfill.
By comparison, at the same usage level, an ultra-efficient Mitsubishi Electric Wave hand dryer would be responsible for just 5% of the CO2 emissions generate by paper towels, result in zero land fill, and have energy costs less than a third of that incurred with traditional hand dryers.
