something between cool and tepid air, which seems to make the machines rather useless.
Sure, the Uni is trying to save money (and the environment) by installing more eco-friendly machines; not to mention installing machines in general because it saves on buying paper towels, which ensures saving a few more trees. The machines might be more cost-efficient in the sense that they are sensor-activated (and de-activated) and run for a set period of time, which is typically not that long.
However, when the machines blow air at a rate that is equivalent to a small jet plane, and when the air that is blown from the machines is barely tepid thus requiring the drying experience to be considerably longer; I am left wondering if there is really any saved costs by installing such next-to-useless devices. With the old dryers, my hands were dry before the set time elapsed; now, I go through two full intervals before finally giving up and finish drying my hands on my jeans.
