If you have a restroom on your premises, whether it is available to the public, or only for employees, you’ll need to provide a way for users to dry their hands. You might assume that paper towels are the best option. After all, the paper is cheap and renewable, and installing a paper towel dispenser costs less than an automatic hand dryer, right? An automatic dryer might be the better choice, and you’ll find a wide range of benefits available here, too.
Reduced Paper and Plastic Use
With an automatic hand dryer, you can cut down on paper waste within your facility. Also, you can reduce plastic use, as well. One-time use plastics, like garbage bags and grocery bags, are among the most damaging to the environment. By eliminating paper towels, you can extend the use life of the trash bags used in each bathroom in your facility.
Energy Use Reductions
Today’s hand dryer models are much more energy efficient than ever before. In fact, they can help you earn LEED certification if you’re looking to go a bit greener. However, the situation goes deeper than just reducing the amount of power consumed by the dryer. Paper towels, while made from a renewable resource, technically, are very energy intensive to manufacture. By reducing your use of paper towels and using a modern hand dryer, you can dramatically impact energy usage on the planet.
How much time does your staff spend cleaning up the restroom? The chances are good that it’s quite a bit, and chances are just as good that much of the mess they clean up is from wet paper towels that never make it into the trash can. By investing in a hand dryer, you’re able to reduce the workload on your staff, improve the look of your restroom, and save money at the same time.
As you can see, there are quite a few benefits available with automatic hand dryers. However, not all makes and models are the same, and you need to make an informed choice based on your use specifics and budget.
