Tips for Buying a Clothes Dryer
When it comes to use in your home, the dryer is second only to the refrigerator. So when considering buying a new dryer, it make sense to weigh your options. Use the following guide to help you determine the best dryer for your family’s needs.
Gas or electric. This one is easy as it depends on what type of power source is available in your home. Gas dryers need a gas line in the laundry room. Electric dryers need a 240-volt electrical outlet.
Capacity. Dryers range from roughly 3.4 cubic feet for compact models to over 7 cubic feet for extra large capacity. The rule of thumb is that you want a dryer with twice the cubic foot capacity as your washing machine. (Clothes stick together in a washer, but need space to toss in a dryer.) Families with kids and frequent clothes washers will do best with a larger dryer model. Single people may be fine with a compact dryer. Remember, the more clothes you can dry in a single load, the more energy and money you save on your dryer energy bill.
Efficiency. There are energy-efficient dryers available in both gas dryer and electric dryer models. Electric dryers tend to cost slightly more to run, though the initial purchase price is often lower than gas dryers. The best way to save is to choose a dryer with energy-saving features. For instance, a dryer moisture sensor monitors the moisture in your clothes and stops the dryer when the clothes are dry. Compared to timed dryer, moisture sensors can save you 10 percent on dryer energy costs. Another green option is temperature sensing, which shuts off the dryer when it reaches a set temperature.
Features. If you have a variety of fabrics that you wash, consider opting for a dryer that has numerous cycles, such as delicate, permanent press and speed-dry. This will allow you to handle special fabrics like satin and linen with greater care and precision. Some dryers even come with a drying rack that allows you to lay clothes like sweaters flat and dry them without tumbling. Keep in mind that more cycles typically drive the price of the dryer up.
Cool-down. If you’re the type to leave laundry sitting in the dryer, look for a dryer that finishes with a cool-down cycle. By circulating cool air through the dryer, you’ll save on resources and reduce wrinkling in your clothes.
