We Show You How to Select the Right Hand Dryer for Your Business
Hand dryers are one of those essential items for any business that nobody gives a thought to, until you have to buy a new one.
But, how do you select the right hand dryer for your business?
What Are the Benefits of Electric Hand Dryers?
They are cost effective. Installing an electric hand dryer may incur an initial cost, but it will save you a considerable amount of money when you no longer need to buy disposable hand towels.
The average American restaurant will be around $27.00 per year to run an electric hand dryer but will spend around $500.00 on hand towels – more, if you factor in how many times your restroom gets paper towels thrown around it.
Electric hand dryers are much better for the environment than paper towels. Switching to electric hand dryers can reduce your non-recyclable waste by up to 15%.
Significant savings can also be made in labor and labor costs. Electric hand dryers don’t need to be replaced as paper towels do and your dryer only needs to be cleaned once a year.
What Should You Look for in a Hand Dryer?
Although you might be tempted to go out and buy one of the first Dyson hand dryers you see, because you know they’re a good brand, there are other factors to consider.
The cost of the hand dryer will be a consideration, but probably won’t be the most important one. The prices for a good, quiet hand dryer can range anywhere from $150.00 to $1,000.00, depending on which size and speed you choose.
The best hand dryers are quiet, efficient, and are the right color and style for your restroom.

For use at home or in low traffic restroom environments, your budget may be a bigger consideration than other factors. Other economical hand dryers range from $135.00 to $266.00 in price.
If it’s for your home, you’ll also want to ensure that you have a quiet hand dryer, particularly if you have young children in the home or light sleepers.
We recommend the No Touch Modern Design Compact Hand Dryer which dries hands completely in 30 seconds.
Medium Traffic Restrooms
For restrooms that receive a medium traffic flow, you’ll need something a little more substantial. We recommend the Optima Medium Range Auto Series Hand Dryers. This model comes in three colors, so it will match any décor.
The Optima dryer’s range in price from $225.00 to $310.00 and are sensor operated. These also come with a 10-year warranty. The dryers run at 1,600 watts and a noise level of 60dB.

The Mitsibushi Jet Towel JT-SB116is another good option for high traffic volume. It’s more expensive than the Dyson Airblade at $1,395.00 but it has a slightly quicker drying time of 10 seconds.
