What About Electric Hand Dryers?

Blogfestlogov2I don't know about you, but I've always disliked electric hand dryers in ladiesrooms because they are slow and don't seem to work very well. But lately I've seen a new model around - called the XLerator - and I've totally changed my opinion.

I first saw one at Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC). According to a recent article in The Campus Chronicle, DMACC removed paper towel dispensers in the 80s. This article quotes the physical plant director who says they save as much as $35,000 a year by using electric dryers instead of paper towels because they do not have to ship, store, stock or dispose of paper towels. That's a lot of $$.

I'm not sure how long the Excel XLerator brand dryers have been in the market, but it sounds like about four years. I like this brand because my hands don't dry out and it's fast, although the noise may surprise you the first time. Your hands will be dry in 10-15 seconds and it's considered a green product since it uses one-third the energy as the 194890963_b85e8aaf5dold hand dryers.

Have you tried one yet?

My advice to building managers: if you're going to use electric hand dryers in the ladiesrooms, pick a good one!
