Eco friendly hand dryers

With commercial overheads and carbon output top of mind for most businesses, we’re dedicated to lowering hand dryer power consumption.Most of our low energy hand dryers are also energy efficient, which makes them less costly to run and lighter on the environment. 

Energy-efficiency isn’t a marketing statement – it’s a matter of designing our models to run on the lowest electrical inputs possible, and plugging them full of the most advanced dryer technology available on the market. 

Are energy saving hand dryers environmentally friendly?

The short answer to this is yes. Because our eco hand dryers rely on touch-free airflow technology, you no longer need to stockpile huge supplies of disposable paper towels – this helps your business to tread lightly, rather than rely on one of the most notorious non-renewable resources.

An energy efficient dryer uses power wisely

Sounds simple, but the less power a hand dryer needs to draw on when activated, the more energy efficient it is. 

1.6kW (the power consumption of a Dyson Airblade) is considered the industry standard for energy efficient hand dryers in the low-energy category – and with the majority of our models coming in at between 1.0 and 1.4kW, our low energy hand dryers are world class. 

Our Antillo dryer combines a super-fast drying speed with an energy consumption of as little as 1.1kW per use. That’s half the power of most standard hand dryers, making it one of the most energy efficient washroom devices in the world.

Short, sharp bursts of energy are the key to lower hand dryer power consumption, and the quicker hands get dried, the less tired your washroom equipment will get over time. 

Our high-speed eco hand dryers such as the Sterillo boast an ultra-quick drying time of 8–10 seconds, costing only a few pennies per use in power consumption. In comparison to the drying time of standard dryers – which can be anything between 20 and 45 seconds – your energy bills will be lighter than air. 

Low energy hand dryers with sensitive technology

Speed and power consumption aren’t the only attributes considered vital for dryer eco-efficiency. Instant detection of hands being placed under or inside the dryer is important when considering how to make your facilities more energy efficient. 

Energy wastage will hit you where it hurts if dryers fail to respond quickly, with frustrated users more likely to stop and restart the motor more than once. 

Our Gorillo blade dryer technology has been specifically developed to avoid excess energy consumption those bills racking up. It features double the usual number of infrared sensors, meaning it can detect hands from different directions simultaneously. With speed adjustment, power and heat on/off switches, you can set this blade hand dryer to be both more economical and energy efficient at the flick of a switch.


Why continue to overspend? With these energy efficient hand dryers and a great deal more besides, now is the time to make a simple switch to a more energy efficient washroom.

Are hand dryers energy efficient?

Energy efficiency isn’t just good for the planet, it’s a brilliant way for you to keep down your fuel bills and manage your facilities budget over the long term. That’s why all Handy Dryers products have been designed to cut out wasted energy in your washroom. 

How many watts does a dryer use?

While older and more traditional hand dryer models can use up to 2.6kW of power per use, modern hand dryers are much more energy efficient. Consuming around 0.5kW of power, our high speed models only cost around £23 per year* to run – that’s over £100 cheaper than a traditional dryer. 

*Based on a yearly consumption of 130 hrs.

Hand dryer power consumption

Producing short bursts of powerful air, our hand dryers are designed to eliminate moisture from wet hands with a single use, thereby reducing electricity consumption and running costs throughout the year.
