HAND DRYERS- HOW MUCH MONEY CAN THEY SAVE EVERY YEAR!
Switching to Integral retro-fit LED panels from your existing fluorescent modular ceiling lights is a very wise thing to do since it is fast, easy and a way to enjoy substantial savings on energy. It will also reduce maintenance and electricity costs but still will give you a brighter surrounding.
With a payback of around 1-2 years or less depending on installation, cleaning, tube replacement and disposal costs, there are surely convincing reasons to switch. The Integral LED panels are designed to be highly cost effective so it will be really worth it to buy. Considering the energy prices only going up in the long term – now, more than ever, is a good time to make the investment and switch.
Electric Hand Dryers - economical & eco-friendly or just a lot of hot air?
Since its invention in Chicago in 1948 by one George Clemens the electric hand dryer has really come a long way. Scientists have shown that older dryers waste up to 90% of the energy coming into them. Aside from consuming a lot of energy, the early manual dryers are slow, inefficient and unhygienic. The push-button action carries the risk of transferring bacteria.
There is now an innovation of hand dryer. The old dryers are being replaced by a generation of automatic hand dryers. These automatic hand dryers are not only more powerful and efficient, it also eliminated the need for a push-button thus it is more hygienic. But as the technology advances so is the awareness of the need for a sustainable and environmental friendly products resulting to the hand dryers we see nowadays – a various collection of units which claim to be both environment and pocket friendly.
However, is this really the case? In comparison to older models and the usual paper towels, how are these modern dryers do? With the use of our money saving calculator let’s take a look at the stats and evaluate the effect of the different hand drying options both economically and ecologically.
The higher the lumens, the higher the light output. Lumens are a measure of the total light output. Lumens divided by power (Watts) gives a measure of the efficiency of an LED panel. Make sure you check the lumens-per-watt rating for the higher the lumens per watt, the more efficient an LED panel is. This is comparable to miles- per-gallon (MPG) or litres-per-100km for fuel efficiency. For instance, there would be an 80 lumens-per-watt rating (80 lm/W) in an LED panel with a 3600 lumen output and a power rating of 45 Watts. In comparison, Integral LED panels have a lumens-per-watt rating of 100-140 lm/W, up to a gigantic 75% efficiency improvement.
