Here are the types of laundry machines that we have seen deals on over the Thanksgiving holiday this year:
Washer & Dryer – Washing machines come in front-loading and top loading, regular and high efficiency, stacking or side by side. Dryers are usually only available in front load although we are always keep our eye out for a top load – they are available in either gas or electric dryers.
Washer & Gas Dryer – Gas Dryers are typically more energy efficient in drying clothes, resulting in a lower cost on your electric bill. Gas dryers also run hotter than the standard electric dryer, potentially leading to a shorter tumble cycle to dry some clothes.
Steam Washer & Steam Dryer – Utilizes a combination of water and steam to do your laundry. Steam boosts the temperature to encourage the fibers relax and more efficiently absorb water and release dirt in the washing machine. A Steam Dryer uses hot air to dry close the same as a regular dryer but includes a steam cycle to soften the fabrics and reduce wrinkles as the moist air penetrates the clothes.
Stackable Washer and Dryer – The Thanksgiving weekend can be a great time to pick up a Laundry Pair because of available discounts on buying both together. Most people choosing stacking machines when they have a small laundry room or are looking to save floor space.
