Choosing A Hand Dryer

Choosing the best hand dryer depends on what features are most important to you. You’ll want to consider hand-drying speed, efficiency, power, sound, appearance, maintenance, and cost. While a new, energy-efficient hand dryer might cost more upfront, it will be more beneficial and cost-effective in the long run. You should also consider the warranty of the hand dryer and if it is ADA compliant. Each of these and more will impact your purchase decision.

You’ll want to consider the type of performance that will work best for your restrooms and the feature that are most important to you. XLERATOR hand dryers and other hand dryers manufactured in the US by Excel Dryer have great performance records. They are dependable as well as cost-effective, especially over paper towels. Look for Made in USA Certified hand dryers with a warranty you are comfortable with.

XLERATOR high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryers are warranted for 7 years but last much longer. Depending on the frequency of use, most Excel Dryer hand dryers last around seven to 10 years or beyond.

The cost to install a hand dryer manufactured by Excel Dryer can depend and vary greatly. We highly recommend the installation be done by a certified licensed electrician.

To select the appropriate hand dryer voltage for your bathroom and usage, you will want to check the voltage that is currently being used in your bathroom facility. If you don’t know your facility’s voltage settings, consult a certified electrician to gather that available usage information for you and match that number with the voltage settings listed for each hand dryer.

Unfortunately, Excel Dryer's USA manufactured hand dryers do not have a switch to convert the voltage of their hand dryers. Although hand dryers are available in multiple voltages, the dryers are voltage specific and must be installed on appropriate voltage as marked on each unit.

The XLERATOR hand dryer comes in 3 different specifications and uses 1240-1450 Watts, 1160-1490 Watts, and 1410 Watts. The XLERATOReco hand dryer comes in 3 different specifications as well and uses 460-530 Watts, 425-500 Watts, and 500 Watts The ThinAir also comes in 3 different specifications and uses 770-915 Watts, 735-950 Watts, and 890 Watts.

Hand Dryers & the Environment

A quick way to check if a hand dryer is sustainable is to check for Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) certification. This is a way of assessing the impact a product will have on the environment through the study of its energy consumption during production, usage, and disposal. Excel Dryer was the first hand dryer manufacturer to publish verified. The XLERATOReco hand dryer is the most energy-efficient hand dryer and produces the least amount of carbon dioxide emissions. Excel Dryer’s high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryers qualify for the most LEED v4 credits of any hand dryer on the market.

Actually, Excel Dryer hand dryers are indeed hygienic. Excel Dryer is committed to manufacturing hand dryers that are hygienic, sustainable, and cost-effective.
