5 Important Things to Consider When Choosing a Washer and Dryer What purpose does a washer and dryer really serve us? They wash and dry our clothes, sure, that’s pretty self-evident. But there’s much more to it than that. Like all our modern day appliances, many washers and dryers have modern day features to consider, and some of these features are designed to save you money in the long run. The first step is to identify your personal needs. Is space an option? Are you willing to spend a little more now to save money in the long run with a more efficient model? Maybe your general contractor put the laundry room right next door to your kids’ bedroom. The options for choosing a washer and dryer can seem daunting, but all the differing features allow you to customize your laundry in a way no one has been able to before. Front loading washers are more energy efficient. Washers are cleaning your clothes better than ever these days, and their doing it using much less electricity. Front loading washers are generally more efficient than top loaders, and a big reason is they use only a third of the water as top loaders. They clean faster as well, and can carry up to 24 pounds of clothes. Front loading washers spin faster, chugging along at up to 1400 RPM vs. 645 for the top loaders. That will drain much more of the water, which shortens the drying time as well. Think about noise The loud clanking and shaking washers from the past are gone; now they can operate with a whisper. Consumer Reports rates new washers and dryers on noise and vibration. If your laundry room is near the bedroom you might want to get the quietest model you can find, or if it’s upstairs you’ll need one that doesn’t shake so much. Touch screen controls make your life easier Some top-of-the line washers and dryers are practically computers themselves, with touch screens that let you customize things like time delay, automatic lock and your favorite spin settings. They’ll show you in detail the progress of the cycle, and helps you control things like steam settings and automatic detergent dispensers. Stackable Washers and Dryers save you space

If you’re laundry room is tiny, or even if it’s a closet, you can save space by purchasing a stackable washer and dryer. This also makes it easier to transfer your wet clothes to the dryer. Look for the Energy Star label The US department of Energy has made it easy to detect the most efficient models. They slap a sticker right on it. With these five outlines for choosing an appropriate washer and dryer to fit your needs, you’ll be much more equipped to go to the appliance store than any generation before. Whether you live in a sprawling ranch in Saskatchewan, Canada, or a tiny apartment in Brooklyn, you’ll discover models that are tailored exactly to your situation. Photo credit: wikipedia, wikipedia
