Picking the Right Washer and Dryer
Washers and dryers can be expected to live up to 15 years, so when you rent a set with the intention of owning it, you want to make sure they're going to work for you for a long time. It's not as simple as getting a good washer and dryer, though. There are a couple of factors that should go into determining which rent to own washer and dryer are right for you.
How much laundry you do
You need to consider the capacity of the washer and dryer. How big is your family? How many loads of laundry do you do per week? Washer capacities range from about 2.45-5.6 cubic feet. Depending on how much laundry you do, you may want to find an energy efficient washer and dryer to help keep energy costs down while running them. Front loading washers use considerably less water than their top loading counterparts. Check for an Energy Star sticker on washers and dryers to identify energy efficient models.
Where you do your laundry
The outer measurements of the washer and dryer determine whether it will physically fit into your laundry room or area. It is a must that you take these measurements into account as both washers and dryers can vary greatly in size.
If space is an issue, we recommend considering a washer and dryer combo. It's one standard sized machine that can do both jobs in half the space.
A final thing to consider is where in your home you do your laundry. If it's hidden out of site, the look of the machines won't matter too much. If they're out in the open where people will regularly see them, you may want to consider more attractive models.
Because of the frequency with which you'll use your washer and dryer, picking the right ones is so important. Don't let a steep price tag stop you from getting a great model.
