Energy and Water Saving Washrooms
Reducing energy and water costs makes perfect sense; it saves money, enhances corporate reputation and helps everyone in the fight against climate change.
Lan Services has a wealth of knowledge and experience in water and energy saving initiatives focused at the commercial washroom sector.
Substantial water savings can be achieved through the use of infra red sensor technology. Modern and discreet sensors can be installed in to the flush systems of toilets, urinals, and taps.
Our select sensor system has been tried and tested, giving complete peace and mind with reliability, functionality, and usability.
- No-touch toilet sensor controls replace the traditional syphon mechanism and can typically save 30% on water costs.
- No-touch sensor taps are designed to look great and can also save an average of 65% on water usage.
- No-touch individual urinal sensors replace the traditional over flow cistern and can save up to 80% on water costs.
Energy savings in a modern washroom can reduce an organisation’s electricity costs.
- Modern condensing and low temperature hot water boilers can achieve efficiencies of over 90%.
- Passive infra red (PIR) lighting sensors are designed to reduce the amount of time lighting is left on unnecessarily, and can save up to 60%. PIR’s can also be linked in to electric heating and ventilation systems to achieve further energy savings.
- Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting can significantly improve the quality of lighting in a room, reduce energy consumption, and lower the cost of maintenance.
The decision to integrate eco efficient features in a commercial washroom is a sensible one and is paramount in the typical refurbishment criteria.
As well as the financial savings from reduced water and electricity costs, brought from sensor activated taps, PIR light sensors and waterless urinals, these features also have other advantages.
Sensor activation is known to improve hygiene as users never need to physically touch these fittings and as such, makes the washroom easier to clean.
Improved hygiene and running costs are not the only added benefits of sensor technology. Often these fixtures have built in anti-vandal technology, and additional programming to assist with meeting legislative standards such as L8 Legionnella Control.
The availability of PIR sensor technology to control taps, hand dryers, soap dispensers, showers, urinal and toilet flushing means an almost entirely no-touch washroom is a possibility.
Whether energy and water saving solutions are important to your company’s core values, or are a vital component in terms of a unit’s change of use, or new build development, we can advise on the available options, and what may work best for your specific needs.
