Hand Dryer Cost Effectiveness

You can save hundreds of pounds over the course of a year by using hand dryers instead of paper towels.

Paper towel systems require regular maintenance (refilling and removal of waste towels) and depending on the level of usage can be expensive to operate. However, installing a hand dryer, although initially more expensive, can reduce costs in the long term as some dryers can cost as little as £10 per year to run.

It pays to choose your hand dryers carefully. While it may be tempting to go for the cheaper sometimes quieter hand dryers they can be a lot less energy efficient and costing more to run in the long term.
