Hot air hand dryer FAQs
How do air hand dryers work?
Air hand dryers can be manually operated or automatic. For automatic hot air hand dryers, a user places their hands under the hand dryer and sensors detect them. The hand dryer’s motor is then triggered and power is drawn from the mains supply to blast hot air onto the user’s hands.
Are hot air hand dryers sanitary?
Yes, hot air hand dryers are sanitary and many air hand dryers are built with a HEPA filter in them which helps to trap over 99% of airborne bacteria so that the air blasting onto the users’ hands is clean.

Are hand dryers more environmentally friendly?
Air hand dryers’ rival is paper towel dispensers but both options can be environmentally friendly. For example, paper hand towels can be made from recycled paper and be biodegradable, however, producing recycled paper towels can have an environmental impact.
On the other hand, you can get energy efficient air hand dryers and with green energy supplies rising, they could eventually be the more environmentally friendly option.
What types of hand dryers are there?
There are many different types of hand dryers to choose from, including:
Hot air hand dryers - hot air hand dryers blow hot air down from the nozzle into the user’s hands. It can take approximately 25 seconds for standard hot air hand dryers to dry hands.
Blade hand dryers - these blast hands with a powerful jet of air for fast-drying. They are praised for being space and eco-efficient as well as more hygienic for users.
Automatic hand dryers - automatic hand dryers are seen as more hygienic as they are touch-free, reducing the risk of spreading bacteria. They are also seen to be more energy efficient than manually operated hand dryers as they will often automatically stop when an object is no longer detected.
High-speed hand dryers - these have been developed in order to be more energy efficient, offer users a quicker dry and improve the traffic flow in commercial toilets. They can dry users’ hands in as little as 10 seconds.
Push button hand dryers - these are more traditional hand dryers and are manually operated as the user must push a button in order to activate the airflow.
What are the benefits of a hot air hand dryer?
There are many benefits to installing a hot air hand dryer in your commercial washroom, including improving hygiene (as the hot air helps to dry hands which may otherwise encourage the spread of bacteria and germs) and being more environmentally friendly as you waste less paper from hand towels.
