What is a Good Brand of Dryer to Buy?
Without question, our experts at Max Appliance Repair can answer just about any question you may have about any brand of dryer on the market. When it comes to determining the best dryer for yourself, there are several things you will need to consider. To begin, one must understand that there is no such thing as a dryer designed to fit everyone’s particular needs. Regardless of what you ultimately decide to do, you will need to research your options carefully. This can feel a bit overwhelming; considering the amount of brands and models currently on the market, but doesn’t have to be stressful by any means.
How to Buy the Right Dryer?
To be sure, you are going to need to buy a dryer. When your current unit breaks down, it might be tempting to consider a life of just hanging your clothes out to try. It worked for generations past, so why can’t it be just as useful in 2018? While you are more than welcome to do this, you are going to find that it’s just not a reasonable permanent solution. The demands of life and family have made it so that we need our appliances to be as self-sufficient and powerful as possible. For this reason alone, it is probably a good idea to just resign yourself to the notion of needing a new dryer.
Shopping for Your New Dryer
The first thing you are going to need to think about is what you need from your dryer. In other words, how many people are in your household? If it’s just you, and perhaps one other person, then your needs are going to be pretty simple. You probably won’t need to do laundry every single day, and you probably don’t need a dryer that can accommodate a large load size. However, if you are shopping for something that would be suitable for a large family, then it stands to reason that your needs are going to drastically change. You need something that can handle several loads in a given week. You certainly need something that can stand up to the constant stress of being used at least once a day.
Costs are something else to keep in mind. Obviously, when we are buying something like a new dryer, we are talking about something that can get a little pricey. However, you don’t need the biggest and most expensive model on the market. Just consider your daily needs. Think about the features that you are actually going to use, and not just things that sound kind of neat. At the same time, you should also understand that when it comes to dryers, you essentially get what you pay for. Be as open as possible to spending what needs to be spent the first time around. You want a dryer that you can rely on for years to come.
Which Dryer is Right for Me?
Now, you should be ready to consider the many options available to you. While we can’t break down absolutely everything that’s out there, we can show you the major types of dryers on the market, and the specific brands that are perhaps worth your first glance:
- Electric Dryers: When it comes to the electric dryer option, LG and Speed Queen are widely considered to be the two best possibilities on the market. Kenmore and Whirlpool are two more brands with a number of well-regarded models. You should make it a point to avoid anything from Hotpoint, or from the company Fisher and Paykel.
- Gas Dryers: Once again, LG and Speed Queen seem to be the most popular possibilities that are currently available to you. Frigidaire brand dryers are not particularly well-liked, and you might be surprised to discover that GE has some of the worst-reviewed dryers to be found anywhere.
In the end, you are going to want to research your choices carefully. Don’t be afraid to go to your local appliance stores in order to try out the current crop of options for yourself. Make sure to read as many reviews as possible. Keep in mind the budget you are willing to allocate to this task. It can also be useful to ask friends and family for any suggestions they may have. There are a number of things you can do, in order to ensure you have purchased the best possible dryer available to you.
