If you’re thinking about adding in-unit laundry to your property, you’ve probably done your research. You know that adding laundry to your units is a value-add project that will increase your property value, and that in-unit laundry is a highly desired amenity.
An entry on Review.com points out that in Europe, ventless dryers are simply called “dryers.” Vented appliances aren’t an option in many countries around the world. Strict space and energy regulations have made smaller, ventless dryers the norm. Energy efficiency and the cleanliness of the clothes are larger concerns than the length of time it takes to dry. In the United States where space is less of a concern, individuals tend to lean toward larger, vented appliances.
Ventless laundry is the perfect solution for units with limited space, because they work without the need for expensive vent runs, and you don’t need to retrofit your property for make-up air.
Easy installation is often an attractive feature for property managers, and the long-term cost savings in energy and water usage add up quickly.
Still, we know many property managers hesitate before purchasing ventless laundry units because of common misconceptions like:
- They’re difficult to use
- They don’t dry clothes
- The cost doesn’t outweigh the benefit
The truth is that ventless laundry units like the Compact Ventless Washer/Dryer Combo from LG work very well and are quite easy to use – they’re just a little different than the conventional vented units that have been common in the United States for many years.
There is a misconception that that combo units don’t perform as well as traditional laundry. But, if you take the time to sort clothes according to fabric type and color, follow the care instructions on your garments and don’t overload the machine, you’ll see optimal results every time.
When you’re thinking about simple and fast updates to increase your property value and raise resident satisfaction, remember that ventless laundry units are:
