With some things it makes sense to replace them with used items. But large appliances, such as washers and dryers, have gotten more efficient with each year.
Unfortunately, your old washer and dryer tends to use a large amounts of energy and water. And, over time, they can start making a great deal of noise, or stop working as well.
So, when is it time to upgrade to a new washing machine and dryer? If you have some of these problems it's probably time to start shopping:
- Noisy, humming, rattling washing machines.
- Excessive water consumption and ineffective in cleaning your clothes.
- Dryer takes too long to dry.
- Water leaking or not draining.
- Years of age, outdated energy efficiency.
- Expensive repairs (often the case with old top-loader machines).
Upgrading Your Washing Machine and Dryer
The bottom line is, if your washer or dryer has become inefficient, noisy, leaky, or is always in need of repairs, it’s time to upgrade.
New technology provides greater energy and water efficiency, better cleaning and drying performance, and many smart features in new washing machines and dryers. For example, some new front loading washing machines have a smaller, second washing machine built into the pedestal at the bottom.
This allows for two separate loads running at the same time. The top machine manages a full load while the lower machine can be used for small loads that need special attention.
In addition, there are top-loading washing machines with built-in sinks under the lid for hand washing or pre-treating. A jet directs water into the sink fitted with ribbed sides for hand scrubbing. The used water can then be poured into the washer's main tub when done.
Smart technology means that washers can be compatible with a smart thermostat and controlled and monitored using a mobile app. The system can switch the washer to a quiet mode when you are home, or turn it on only during low-cost, off-peak energy hours.
Finding a Good Old Appliance Removal Solution
Unfortunately, once you buy a new washer and dryer, you still have to get rid of your old ones. And not every appliance dealer will take you old machines. So the problem for many homeowners is how to easily get rid of their old machines.
One option for working and usable machines is to try selling them online or in a yard sale. However, if they don't sell right away - or you simply don't want to take the time - what else can you do?
A simple solution is to hire a junk removal service.
By using an eco-friendly junk removal service to repurpose your old appliance you don’t have to worry about the environmental impact of disposing of your old machines. Working appliances are much appreciated by donation center and charities.
However, there are times when appliance recycling makes more sense than donation, especially if the equipment is inefficient and close to breaking down. Your old washing machine and dryer can be disassembled and recycled and a junk removal service can help to make sure your old appliances are recycled for the scrap metal and other materials.
Moving and lifting a washer or dryer is hard work and requires a vehicle that can handle the load safely. This is another reason to hire a junk removal firm. Junk King's teams are well trained for these tasks and they also have the right equipment to do it quickly and efficiently.
