Deciding Whether a Washer Dryer Combo or Individual Units Are Best for Your Home
You have different options when it comes to replacing your existing washer and dryer. You could decide to look at equivalent energy-efficient models similar to your existing pair. Another option is to look at a combo unit that incorporates both washing and drying features all in a single appliance. Deciding which choice is going to work best for you does depend upon a few different factors.
Probably one of the most important factors you need to determine is how you do laundry, and whether you need to continue to do it in this manner. Most people wait until the end of the week and wash numerous loads, all on the same day. But, if you were able to spread your laundry out over the course of the week, and do a load every few days, a combo unit would be a good choice. On the other hand, if you lack the time or have a large family, a side-by-side laundry pair might be a better decision.
Regardless of your decision, you are able to find both combo and individual models available from LG that incorporate energy saving features, as well as ventless drying. Ventless drying eliminates the need for a dryer vent and requires less electricity than a conventional dryer. Further, washer models use less water and electricity than your conventional machines. Just remember, if you select a combination unit, it takes approximately 2 ½ hours for the entire washing and drying cycles to complete, since both processes are performed in the same appliance.
