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.

How Hand Dryers Use Electricity

Conventional hand dryers work by blowing heated air over the user’s hands to cause the water from washing to evaporate away. This means that electricity is being used to power both the fan and a heating element. Modern jet hand dryers work differently. Fast moving air blows the water off the surface of the skin. This is more hygienic because the water will leave fewer germs and residue on the skin and uses much less energy.

In fact, in eco mode, the Mitsubishi Electric Wave u02 uses just 490 watts of power and can dry the user’s hands in under 15 seconds! At typical electricity prices, this means that the cost of 5,000 uses is just £1
