These Hand Dryers Are Up To 80% Cheaper To Run Than a Standard Hand Dryer or Paper Towels

A faster dry time and lower power consumption means the Crocodillo T and Gorillo hand dryer costs up to 80% less to run than older style hand dryers and 97% less than paper towels.

You can dry your hands over 20 times with a Gorillo for the price of a single paper towel.*

Paper towels can also be troublesome. There’s the hassle and additional costs of monitoring the dispensers, keeping them filled and keeping the paper bins empty. There’s the risk of litter: towels tossed onto the washroom floor and create an unsightly mess. People also often flush paper towels down toilets, plugging them up

Cost is one thing but ecologically the hand dryer is a better choice. Even a recycled paper towel was at some point a slice of tree pulp.

Below is a costs comparison for the running costs of paper towels vs an electric hand dryer. This ignores the additional maintenance costs of using paper towels.
