Office Hand Air Dryers vs. Paper Towels: Buy an air dryer. They typically run for about 30 seconds and consume only 2 KW of energy which equates to 0.01667 KW Hours of energy per person. At $0.12/KWH, the cost of this runs at around 0.2 cents per visit. By comparison, paper towels cost 1.5 cents on average. That is 1.3 cents less than using a paper towel.

The ROI Calculation is based on an $85 unit at 0.13 cost per use. It pays for itself in 6,500 visits to the rest room. With ten employees visiting the restroom two or three times a work day, you could have 150 visits per week, 600 per month and around 7,200 per year. The payback comes in the tenth month and then you can save money every year over the course of the five year warranty or longer.

Plus, by not using paper towels, you'll save the trees along the way, reduce the landfill waste, reduce the oil used in transporting the paper towels to your office and to the landfill, and reduce the time needed to clean the trash can in your bathrooms.
