Making Buildings More Energy Efficient
The rising costs of energy and the need to reduce emissions on a global scale is a driving force in construction and facilities management. With modern, energy efficient Workplace Hand Dryers, it is possible to make a significant difference to electricity use in a building which can result in impressive cost savings.
How much money do efficient hand dryers save
Conventional evaporative hand dryers work by blowing warm air over a user’s hands to remove moisture after washing. These dryers require quite high levels of energy to power both the fan and heating element and are slow to work with a drying time higher than 30seconds.
Jet hand dryers are much faster in operation. Rather than needing to remove moisture through heat, they simply blow the droplets of water off the skin, and can work in as little as 10 seconds.
Faster operation, coupled with a more efficient fan design and the reduced need for heating means that an energy efficient Hand Dryer such as the Mitsubishi Electric u02 can save substantial amounts of money over its lifespan. In typical operation, being used 100 times daily, each Mitsubishi Electric Wave u02 will reduce electricity bills by approximately 67% over the course of a year compared to a conventional design.
