Hansgrohe Cool-Start Basin Taps
Our days and evenings are filled with several trips to the bathroom where we turn the tap on briefly to wash our hands. Aesthetically we know that a tap looks best when the handle is perfectly aligned with the main faucet of the base mixer. However, how often do you need to use ultra-hot water to rinse your hands after using the bathroom or when brushing your teeth?
Did you know, that when you use a traditional mono-basin mixer with any kind of lever in its centre position, you will often be running a mix of hot and cold water when you open the tap. This kick-starts your boiler into life to heat water that is going to be used for a minimal amount of time.
With Hansgrohe’s innovative Cool-Start taps, they work with a tap that only turns one way. When it’s in the central position it opens at the coolest temperature. Thus, saving your heating system from booting up for teeth brushing and hand rinsing which ultimately reduces unnecessary costs to your energy bills.
Furthermore, eco-smart technology is a must for cloakrooms – where guests use the facilities frequently. Another benefit to this technology is that it prevents hot water accidents; so perfect for children and the elderly. They are also much easier to operate as you only turn the tap handle in one direction to increase the temperature gradually.
A handy little ‘did you know?’ fact for those of our clients that are Hansgrohe fans. The manufacturer generates their own energy for the production halls in Offenburg, Germany. Using a photovoltaic system on the roofs of their buildings (that’s solar panels to you and me!) This shows Hansgrohe’s long term commitment when it comes to green manufacturing and why they are one of our favourites here at Bathroom Eleven.
