The Only 3 Questions to Ask Yourself for Having a Clean Laundry

Santos, November 23, 2016


With the number of choices we have out there, it’s easy to just throw your discernment into the air and make a purchase of any washing machine that’s out there today.

But then again, you may just find that your washing machine you hastily purchased from an overeager salesman isn’t exactly what you need – maybe it’s too large for your needs, or maybe it’s too small.

Today, washing machines are more advanced than ever with the numbers of models available saturating the market totaling to thousands. A washing machine is a necessary piece of equipment to have in the household because it reduces the effort utilized for washing clothes significantly. Washing machines used to be very straightforward, but with the hosts of new specifications such as capacity drums and advanced cycles making its way to the market, it is getting harder to decide what model to purchase.

Here’s what to consider before buying your washer.

1. What Size is my Space and What are my Needs?

The type of washer you purchase will depend largely on where you are going to install it. For instance, if you have a basement set up or a large laundry room, a large front loading machine will fit best into your space. Top loading machines work best for small compact spaces such as a narrow closet space. You might also need to determine whether you require a dual functional device that has both the washer and the dryer or if you prefer separate pieces for each task. Again, it depends on your space and needs.

2. What Size and Speed do I Need?

Capacity is an important consideration to make as the size of the machine affects the amount of clothes you wash. If your machine caters to the entire family, a high capacity device might be your best bet as it handles large quantities of clothes, cutting down on the number of times you clean clothes. The speed, on the other hand, refers to the number of turns per minute that your machine makes. Machines with fast speeds extract large amounts of moisture, meaning that your clothes dry faster when they leave the washer.

3. What Features do I Need and How do the Features Affect my Budget?

Typically, washing machines that are laden with features cost more. Machines have basic functions such as spin rate and temperature control. However, sophisticated additional features such as delay timers, low noise levels, and quick wash features are what separate high-end machines from inexpensive ones. The choice of which features you need rests solely on you as you will have to determine whether you are willing to pay for all the bells and whistles.
Conducting detailed research into the models available will help you find a machine for the best value. To conserve energy, look for a model that is energy efficient. The lesser energy the machine costs, the better it is for the environment. The clothes will come out as clean as needed, and you will still look good. What more can you wish for! Lucky for you, most electronics produced today carry an energy efficient label, which will make it easy for you to identify.

P.S. Since we’re on the topic of washing machines anyway, why not complete the set of your home cleaning gear and invest in a pressure washer? Our friends over at Wash Wisely will sort you out – your budget usually doesn’t matter since pressure washers come in all prices, shapes, and sizes. Try one!
