When to buy a clothes dryer
1. When Purchasing a Washing Machine:
There is no question that more dryers are purchased in connection with washer purchases than at any other time. It makes sense to have a matching dryer to go with your washer. So, it’s not a surprise that around sixty percent of laundry buyers choose a matching laundry pair.
A matching dryer will have the right capacity to handle a full load of clothes from the washer. Having this kind of throughput is important. When you’re washing multiple loads of clothes it’s nice to have the dryer available for use when the clothes are done washing. And, it sure perks up the laundry room to have a matching washer/dryer pair.
2. When you can save money:
Washer/Dryer pairs are often promoted as sets. If you can get a great deal on the pair, take advantage of the savings. Ask the experts at Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center for any manufacturer specials on laundry pairs.
3. When the old dryer breaks down:
Assuming “old” means 12-15 years old or more, if your dryer breaks down, there’s a good chance the repair bill will exceed the value of your dryer. Time for a visit to Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center.
4. When switching from gas to electric or vice versa:
If you move into a house with only a 240v receptacle for an electric dryer and you bring a gas dryer with you, it’s time to go shopping for a new dryer. If you have gas to the house and near the utility room, it might be possible to bring in a gas stub. However, the cost could easily outweigh the benefit, i.e. you might as well buy a new dryer.
5. To update an old unit:
Since dryers can last twice as long as washing machines, it’s likely that new and improved versions will come out that you may want to get before the old beast falls apart. For example, 20 years ago dryers were not nearly as energy efficient as they are today, and nowhere near as gentle on your clothes.
