Whenever a customer comes to you about replacing their kitchen sinks or faucets, there are many different options to recommend to them. However, the latest innovation in the kitchen accessory industry is the introduction of sensor – or touchless – faucets.
These touchless faucets are much more than a fancy kitchen gadget. In order to justify their high price tag to customers, you must understand that installing these sensor faucets to the kitchen sink is more convenient and can keep your kitchen cleaner and free of germs.
Sensor Faucets: Touch or Touchless?
When you begin selling new faucets to customers, you must know the different kinds of products available in the market. In this case, sensor faucets come in both touch and touchless variations. While they may seem opposite to you, the two kitchen faucets are quite same to each other.
Innovating the typical kitchen faucet, both touch and touchless kitchen faucets reduce the physical action that is needed to turn a tap on or off. A kitchen faucet that is the touch-sensitive response to a minimal physical touch (unlike the traditional handle-pulling), whereas the touchless faucet simply responds to an object in front through the sensors.
Explaining the Touch-Sensitive Faucet Mechanism
Before you make a sale on these new kitchen faucets, customers are likely to ask you how this touch-sensitive accessory works in the first place. More importantly, they will question how a kitchen faucet could switch off and switch off with a minimal touch? Well, the mechanism is operated through electricity. A touch-sensitive kitchen faucet will maintain an electrical charge in itself and will identify an increase in that charge through its sensor whenever you touch it.
Due to the latest technology, these faucets’ sensors can identify the difference between a quick tap or a prolonged grab – and will always act accordingly. In case of a small tap, the water will begin to flow through the faucet. With a more prolonged gap, the sensor will assume that the faucet or sink is being cleaned and thus will not turn on the tap.
Key Points to Sell Sensor Faucets
After explaining the product’s mechanism, you must still have some convincing points for your customers to actually purchase these new kitchen accessories. Here are some key points you can sell to potential customers:
1. Water Conservation: By using sensor faucets, you can cut down on your water consumption significantly. This saves money on utility bills and helps you become more socially responsible by saving water for the environment.
2. Cleanliness: The biggest reason the kitchen sink and faucet remain unclean is because we use our dirty hands to touch the tap’s handles to turn on the water. With sensor faucets, you can eliminate this problem entirely. Since you don’t have to touch anything for the water to begin flowing, you can easily wash your hands without risking a spread of germs around the kitchen.
3. Convenience: The easiest way to sell sensor faucets is by selling their ease of use. It is simple to turn on and off, and it can help you avoid unwanted temperatures of water since the sensors are smart enough to adjust it accordingly.
