Nowadays, most homeowners own one or two clothes dryers. These devices are extremely useful for when you want to dry your clothes but you don’t have enough space to use the drying rack, or let’s say you want to quickly dry your clothes for when you are in a rush and you’re running out of clothes to wear. If you thinking of buying a good quality clothes dryer, here are some things that you have to take into consideration to ensure that you’ve made the best purchase.
Gas or electric?
The electric dryers are undoubtedly the most popular ones. However, after many testing, it was discovered that these two types of clothes dryers perform pretty much the same, the only difference being in the price. Gas dryers generally cost more, but the difference is not as noticeable. To get a high quality gas clothes dryer you will have to spend an additional $50 to $150. Although they are more expensive, you will manage to save some money in the long term, because they use less energy than electric dryers.
Features and cycles
If you are interested in purchasing a new dryer, you should know that the majority of clothes dryer models that are currently available on the market come with more features than the traditional models. Many of the new models include convenient and useful features that allow you to keep an eye on the process. You can also take advantage of the smart technology to control your clothes dryer from your smartphone or communicate with the manufacture. Regarding the dryer cycles for clothes, it’s very important to mention that most of the clothes dryers come with several cycles for clothes to ensure that the clothes are quickly dried and that wrinkles are removed (steam cycles can remove wrinkles).
Considering the fact that most clothes dryers don’t consume a lot of energy, this aspect was not considered to be as important. However, as companies decided to develop dryiers that use small amounts of energy to operate, and thus help you make money savings at the end of the month, customers are now inclined to choose a clothes dryer that uses small amount of energy. What’s important mentioning here, is the fact that there are some clothes dryers that use advance sensor systems to monitor the moisture content and clothing and stop the cycle when the clothes are completely dry. So, next time you are willing to invest in a clothes dryer make sure that it comes with a sensor system, as well as other eco-friendly features.
