While most kitchens are equipped with traditional fixtures that need to be turned on and off manually, there is another option. In today’s blog, we’ll take a look at some of the benefits of installing touchless fixtures during a kitchen remodel.
What Is a Touchless Fixture?
Touchless fixtures are a technological advantage that make cooking, cleaning, and sanitizing that much safer and easier. These amazing tools use sensors to turn faucets on and off, making it possible to wash your hands without transferring bacteria to the faucet. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of installing them during your kitchen remodel project.
Adding Touchless Elements Will Add Value
Hands-free fixtures have been gaining popularity over the last several years. Structurally, they function the same as traditional fixtures, so they can be changed out without hiring a plumber. When you install these fixtures, you are upgrading your kitchen. You are also adding value that you can take to the bank–especially when it comes time to sell your home.
Reduce the Risk of Illness During Your Kitchen Remodel
Installing touchless kitchen fixtures plays a significant role in reducing the risk of food-borne illnesses like e.Coli. Imagine a scenario where you can prepare and cook an entire meal without turning on a spigot to wash your hands. Fixtures that can be turned on and off by sensor are designed to reduce the risk of accidental cross-contamination that can cause illness or even death.
Save Water and Money With Your Kitchen Remodel
Unlike traditional sink fixtures, touchless fixtures are designed to be more water efficient. This is thanks to the sensors and timer that limit the amount of water used in one visit. For example, a traditional sink will use about two gallons of water per minute until it’s turned off. A touchless fixture will only use as much water as needed, since the sensor will turn off after a short period or when the user steps away. This means a lower water bill!
