Choosing The Right Electronic Faucets
Electronic faucets are called electronic taps, sensor faucets, and hands-free faucets. If you have decided to renovate your bathroom or kitchen by installing electronic faucets, there are many high-tech varieties to choose from. You may want a touchless automatic faucet that turns on the water using infrared sensors that detect movement, or you may choose a fixture that lets you turn on the water with the touch of a button. Whichever type of faucet you choose, you may never have to worry again about forgetting to turn off the water, since, usually, it will automatically shut off after a certain period of time. You can choose a faucet that is a wall mount or standard countertop in a contemporary style, goose neck shape, or even a Victorian era faucet to complement your decor. Usually these faucets are battery operated, but the option of hooking the fixture into an electrical system is sometimes available with certain kinds of electronic faucets.
Most electronic faucets operate with infrared sensors to detect motion underneath the faucet, which, in turn, allows the water to flow. There are even some fixtures that offer faucets with body sensors. This type of faucet will turn on when it first senses that you are near the sink and automatically shut off as you leave the area. This electronic fixture may appeal to you if you don’t want to bother waving your hands underneath the faucet to turn it on. All you need do is walk toward the fixture to activate water flow.
