EXTREMEAIR Green Guide
Reduce your carbon footprint by reducing energy. The EXTREMEAIR EXT Series is the first and only high speed hand dryer to reduce power consumption to an industry-leading 540 watts of electricity. That’s up to 3 X Less Power than other “green” hand dryers. The EXTREMEAIR uses 33 times less energy than virgin paper towels per hand drying.
Going green doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. In fact, the EXTREMEAIR saves customers 95% versus paper towel costs while eliminating landfill waste. The EXTREMEAIR can dry your hands 55 times for the cost of one paper towel.
Paper towels cannot be recycled, consume precious resources, and use excessive landfill space. Therefore, they should not be used. To make one ton of paper towels 7,000 gallons of water are polluted, 17 full grown trees are cut down, 464 gallons of oil and 42 gallons of gasoline are burned. Since paper towels can not be recycled, three yards of landfill waste are created.
Wasting these vital resources is expensive. Use our free calculator to see how you can reduce waste and energy consumption while saving 95% versus paper towel costs.
The EXTREMEAIR has the smallest carbon footprint of any method of hand drying – up to 86 less carbon emissions per 1,000 hand dryings than paper towels. The patented design is powerful and energy efficient, drying hands quickly with a small amount of electrical power.
We used government data to calculate the carbon emissions of the EXTREMEAIR hand dryer and other methods of hand drying. While all of our warm air dryers have low carbon emissions, the EXTREMEAIR outperforms all of its comparisons with the lowest CO2 emissions per 1,000 hand dryings. Its reduced power consumption and fast drying time uses 80-90% less energy than conventional hand dryers. Due to its energy efficiency, the EXTREMEAIR hand dryer saves you 95% of the costs of using paper towels.
