How to pick the right washer and dryer

Choosing the best washer and dryer can be a challenge.  Most people aren’t familiar with all the terms and specifications used for these appliances.  With a few easy steps, making a final decision can become much simpler.

The obvious first step is to determine the size of the budget.  This goes a little bit deeper than simply looking at the highest amount that can be spent.  The budget will also be impacted by how much it costs to run each load combined with how many loads are being done each week.  It’s best to figure out how much you are comfortable with spending.  Then you can form an idea of how much in long term savings it will take to make it worth going over that amount.

Save money with high-efficiency appliances

The next step is to evaluate your situation.  The most common consideration is the size of the washer and dryer in relation to how much laundry is being done.  Is it a large family that requires use almost daily?  Or is it for a single person or couple without kids that run smaller loads far less frequently?  Amount of use is a key contributor of course, but there are many other important factors as well.  For example, front loaders are far easier for someone in a wheelchair to use.  Or do you expect to relocate again in the near future? If that’s the case, a smaller appliance might be better even if the larger capacity would be more convenient in the short term.  The capacity of the system is critical, but many other features can also affect your quality of life.

Efficiency of the new washer is also something that bears consideration.  Both the budget and how frequently you will use the appliance needs to be weighed against how efficient it is.  New appliances carry an energy rating for how much power is needed.  Energy-efficient appliances can save a lot of money in the long term.  Front-loading washers and dryers are also considered more efficient as they use less water and power than traditional top loading systems.  Decide early on if saving money consistently would be worth spending a little bit more upfront.

What features for your washer or dryer are most important to you?

You can also look at what features are going to be the most helpful and which ones don’t matter as much to you.  Deciding beforehand will allow you to streamline the time you spend shopping and provide a much simpler way to compare prices and different makes and models.
