If you are looking for a cost-effective way to add in-home laundry to your apartments, you should consider a LG washer and dryer combo. What is a combo? It is a single compact appliance that has incorporated both the washing and drying cycles into one machine. Further, this type of laundry unit uses ventless drying, which means you do not need access to a dryer vent.
The advantages of a washer and dryer combo for your apartment homes are pretty clear. First, you do not have to worry about whether the units have been vented for dryers. Even if the building was vented, it still can be costly to keep the vents cleaned and in proper working order. By not needing the vents, you also reduce fire hazards associated with lint problems in dryer vents. Additionally, your insurance rates might be reduced if you install these combination appliances into all of your homes. However, you have to check with your insurance agent.
Another advantage is that the apartment homes do not need dedicated areas within each one for a laundry room. Your new LG combination appliances only require connection to hot and cold water and a discharge drain. The electrical requirements do not require any special outlets and work from any standard 3-prong 110V outlet in the home. You can have a portable kit put on the machines, which allows your tenants the flexibility to connect the washer and dryer to the kitchen sink to do laundry, and then wheel it out of the way once finished.
