Choose a Type of Dryer
Unlike washing machines—which use electricity to function—not all dryers use the same energy source. Dryers can be either electric or gas, but what’s the difference? Well, electric dryers tend to use a heating element while gas dryers use a gas burner. If you’re still not sure which dryer to go with, here are a few things to think about:
- Electric dryers don’t cost as much up front.
- Gas dryers are usually more
- Gas dryers require a specific hookup.
Decide Between Front Load or Top Load
Some people are extremely passionate about their choice of washer style. The truth is, there is no right or wrong way to go when it comes to front load or top load washing machines, it all just comes down to your preference.
One of the biggest differences between a front load and a top load has to do with the way the water is circulated throughout during a cycle. The front load washer uses the drum and momentum of the water to spin the clothes around while the top load washer usually uses an agitator or an impeller to scrub your garments. If you’re still struggling to choose a style, here are a few thoughts that may help your decision-making:
- Top load washers usually perform shorter wash cycles.
- Front load washers have more space for larger loads.
- Front load washers tend to use less water, but top load washers have energy-efficient models that ensure less water waste as well.
When shopping for appliances online, you’ll need to know the accurate dimensions so you can purchase a washer and dryer that will actually fit in your home. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that all laundry appliances are made the same size—because they aren’t! Just grab your measuring tape, get ready to measure the area where your appliances will go, and be sure to follow this measuring guide:
- To get the height, measure from the ground to the under part of any shelves or cabinets. It’s important to keep in mind that if you choose a top load washer, you’ll need at least 20 inches above the lid so that it will fully open.
- To get the width, measure from side to side but be sure to leave an inch of space on each side so that your laundry appliances have better air circulation.
- To get the depth, measure from the back to the front but being sure to keep at least 6-inches in the back for the hookups.
- Measure at least twice!
