Why Choose a Hand Dryer over Paper Towels for your Home

In 2024 staying sustainable, efficient, and hygienic has been more of a hassle than ever before with the push of single-use items. With the RevSquared HD 350 Hand Dryer you can find a solution to stop the single-use paper towels in the restroom and kitchen while maintaining hygiene and being efficient with its commercial-grade power. When it comes to the decision between paper towels and hand dryers the answer may seem trivial, but it holds more weight than you may think. Let’s delve into why opting for a hand dryer for your home is not just a practical choice but also an environmentally conscious one.

The Environmental Impact

To put it point blank, paper towels contribute to environmental waste. Between the cutting down of trees, the energy consumption, and water usage, the toll of these single-use items makes a larger environmental impact than one might assume. Once used, they end up in landfills admitting greenhouse gasses, where they take years to decompose and in turn are contributing to pollution.

On the other side of the coin, we have hand dryers that offer a significantly lower environmental footprint. While the production of hand dryers does require energy and resources, their long-term benefits outweigh their initial environmental impact. Many modern hand dryers, like the RevSquared HD 350, are designed to be energy-efficient, using a touchless operation to turn on and use powerful motors to get the job done in seconds. To follow this, hand dryers are being built for longevity. Meaning fewer units are ending up in landfills compared to the constant stream of discarded paper towels. Overall, when considering environmental impact, hand dryers are the clear winner in the battle against sustainability and pollution.

Hygiene and Cleanliness

While some may opt to not dry their hands at all after washing to mitigate the paper towel waste and not have to use a hand dryer or install an at-home hand dryer, not drying your hands creates bacteria build-up and is frowned upon due to hygienic issues. Hand dyers can offer a hygienic solution while remaining eco-friendly and a hygienic solution, especially with the addition of the HEPA air filter.This is an air filter that filters out the air prior to being pushed onto your hands. A HEPA air filter can filter out 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size od 0.3 microns.

Cost Savings

While the upfront cost of installing a hand dryer may be higher than your typical purchase of paper towels, the long-term savings are undeniable. This applies for most sustainable products as you pay for quality for longevity. Paper towels are a recurring expense, whereas hand dryers require minimum upkeep and minimal ongoing costs, primarily electricity usage, resulting in a significant savings over time.
