Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 23, 2019 9:00:00 AM

 

If you think of your clothes dryer as being one of the simplest appliances in your home, think again. Most people think that it just turns a drum and blows heat, but there's quite a bit going on inside that big metal box! If you are in the process of researching a new dryer, you know there are many brands, models, and features to consider. We'll compare LG and Maytag to help you determine the best clothes dryer brand for you.

In order to compare the two models, we need to first look at some of the technology behind drying clothes. Clothes dryers have a variety of safety features to not only go easy on your clothes by preventing over-drying, but also keep your home safe if something malfunctions. The average system will have a temperature range of 80 to 190 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on selected cycles and settings. There are two main ways for a dryer to keep track of the drying progress: moisture sensors and thermistors.

Electric Clothes Dryer Reviews - GE vs Frigidaire

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 23, 2019 8:00:00 AM

 

Older electric dryers are just one of the many household products in your home that may be serious energy hogs. As they age, dryers lose sufficient fresh air intake as well as heat and moisture discharge capabilities due to a number of factors, such as worn or broken blower wheels, worn or dry-rotted drum seals, stretched belts, or slow motor rotation and aging thermostats. And, of course, keep in mind that all dryers accumulate lint within their components throughout their lifetime.

If you’re finding your current dryer either gobbles electricity or needs multiple runs to properly dry your laundry, then wait no longer … it's time to replace it. New dryers have more efficient motors and blowers, fresh drum seals and better thermostats and moisture sensors, allowing them to finish the job quicker, which means less run time and thus lower operating costs.

When you begin your dryer research, consider the brands GE and Frigidaire. Both GE and Frigidaire have been in the laundry business for as long as we can remember for good reason: quality products! We've put together these electric clothes dryer reviews of two of their top budget-priced models to help you make an informed decision.

Side Venting Dryer - Need a Good Side Venting Option?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 20, 2019 11:00:00 AM

 

There are several important questions to consider when doing your research on a new dryer. How it will vent is one of them. Depending on the configuration of your laundry room or closet, you may find that you need a good side venting option.

Standard dryer installation calls for rear venting but due to space limitations or configuration, you may need to look for a model that allows side venting. Not all models do! It's important to bring this up with your local appliance salesperson, because different brands and models have different restrictions for the options to install side venting. For example, you may only be able to side vent on one side of the dryer - most gas dryers can only be side vented to the left because of the burner housing. Dryers with "four-way venting" usually will allow you to install a side vent on either side.
