Save Money with Front Load Washers
by Guest on Mar 29, 2011
Front load washers are becoming more and more popular in home laundry rooms. Their features and functionality make them great for homeowners who don’t want to spend a lot of time doing laundry. They’re also great for those who have different types of laundry to wash, from delicates to denims. Consumers like not only the features of front load washers, but also the savings that can come from these highly efficient appliances.
Most people know that front load washers are convenient, but they may not know that they are also very efficient. Some models include automatic water level sensors that can detect the amount of laundry being washed and adjust the water level accordingly. This saves on total gallons of water used per wash load and can really add up to a large savings over the course of a year. In addition to sensing the amount of water to be used, front load washers sometimes also have a feature that can regulate the water temperature. This can help a homeowner save money on water used for washing. When the water used for washing is at the right temperature it can save money on heating water. It can also help preserve the look and fit of clothing by ensuring that it is being washed in the right temperature of water.
Not only can front load washers save money by using just the right temperature and amount of water, they can also help to reduce drying time by reducing the amount of water left in the laundry at the end of the cycle. The super high speed and extra spin cycles in front load washers remove the maximum amount of water from the clothing so that the dryer doesn’t have to work as hard or as long to dry the laundry.
In addition to the features that offer savings in water use, front load washers are well known for having a large capacity tub allowing more items to be washed in a single load than with most top load models. Being able to wash more laundry in a single load can amount to fewer total loads per week and even more overall savings.
Most front load washers feature stainless steel wash tubs which help to reduce odors in the washer. This can help to keep odors from transferring to fabrics. Some models have features that can circulate air in the washer for several hours after the wash cycle has finished, keeping clothes fresh and free from odors that can occur when wet fabrics sit. In addition, many front load washers offer specific stain removal cycles that can help to treat stains that might otherwise permanently damage clothing. The cost for replacing clothing damaged in the laundry process can really add up, but the features offered by many front load washers can make a big difference in a clothing budget by saving the fabrics from fading, stains, and odors.
With many features for both convenience and savings, front load washers can be a great choice for consumers looking to improve their home laundry experience.
