While touchless faucets are becoming widespread in public buildings, some misconceptions surround them. We’ve rounded up some of the most common myths below – followed by our take on why smart faucets are always the right choice when planning any project, big or small.

 

1. Touchless faucets are expensive


When you mention the word “touchless” to a customer or potential customer, there could be a fear that such faucets are too expensive or too cumbersome to add to existing buildings.

However, the market for touchless faucets is wide and varied – and keeps growing. That places them within most buildings’ budgets and makes it easier to plan projects according to the customers’ needs while taking into account their limitations.

And, touchless faucets are good for a building’s operational budget. They can help save water – up to 50% – and energy compared to traditional faucets, especially in buildings with high-volume faucet usage. That means touchless faucets can pay for themselves in the form of lower water and energy bills.

Touchless faucets help save water – up to 50% – and energy compared to traditional faucets, thus lowering the water and energy bills.

2. Touchless faucets are difficult to install

Whether your project is a hospital or a three-storey shopping mall, installing touchless faucets is easy and does not always require help from an electrician. Our smart faucets are designed to easily replace any manual faucet and in some cases are even quicker to install.

 

3. Touchless faucets require constant maintenance

Some building owners we’ve encountered believe that touchless faucets come with constant sensor malfunctions and require frequent battery changes.

Our reliable PSD (Position Sensitive Detector) technology ensures that our sensors respond precisely to hand movements, offering smoother usability compared to IR (infrared sensor) technology. The batteries last about 3 years and are easy to change, and battery life can be easily monitored in the HANSA Connect App. In addition to the battery-operated models, touchless faucets are also available as main supply or plug transformer versions – and the power supply can be change flexibly even after the faucet installation.

Thanks to the HANSA Connect App, building operators easily program every touchless faucet to their exact needs – which makes monitoring and maintenance faster and more efficient throughout the building. Again, adding to cost savings for building operators.

4. Touchless faucets are ugly

Nothing could be further from the truth. Those who believe that touchless faucet designs are boring or unattractive have simply not had the chance to explore the wide range of touchless designs that are available.

From classic styles to angular forms and soothing silhouettes, HANSA has a wide range of touchless faucets to suit the look and feel of any building project.
