In situations where you have a limited amount of space in your laundry room, there are other options, besides trying to fit in a full size washer and dryer. One popular alternative is to use a LG washer dryer combo. This combined unit is a single appliance designed to wash and dry your clothes, all within the same unit. This eliminates the need for two separate appliances within the same space. Because you only require a single unit, they fit easier into small areas, such as closets or the under counter – like a dishwasher. The only connections required are for your hot and cold water lines, a discharge drain line and 110 volt /15 amps for electrical. Unlike conventional dryers, there is no dryer vent needed with this combination unit.
A Washer Dryer Combo Is Environmentally Friendly and Energy Efficient
The features found in a LG washer dryer combo are much more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. First, the washer uses less water than a traditional washing machine. Because of the technology used in the combination washer, normal loads typically only discharge around 5 gallons of water per minute and use about 12-15 gallons of water per load. Conventional washers, on the other hand, discharge around 16 gallons of water per minute and require around 40 gallons of water per load. Further, since you are using less water per load of laundry, your hot water heater also benefits, since it does not need to use as much energy to keep water hot. The built-in dryer has its own energy-saving features, as well. The dryer only requires about 1.4 kilowatts of electricity per hour, compared to 5 or 6 kilowatts of electricity per hour, using a conventional dryer during the drying cycle.
