Energy Usage for Hand Dryers
In a typical office building the number of times people wash their hands each day can be surprising. Depending on the number of staff, and the number of bathrooms available, it is not unusual for hand dryers to be used more than five hundred times daily. Over the course of a year, this can mean a significant amount of energy use.
In a situation where a conventional hand dryer is being used five hundred times daily, the annual running costs can be £159. Across multiple bathrooms in a large office building, costs can easily rise into the thousands of pounds annually. By comparison, the Mitsubishi Electric Wave u02 hands-under dryer costs as little as £48 annually at the same usage levels.
