No Vents Needed
Ventless dryers mean no ductwork, no fire rated vent chase, no finish work inside the apartment, no new holes in the building envelope, no make-up air requirements, no fans, and greatly simplified design and construction.
Conventional dryers discharge over 10,000 cubic feet of air per cycle. This air is taken directly from inside the residence and must be replaced with outside air to maintain proper balance and pressure. This increases HVAC loads and mandates larger fresh air manifolds.
Long story short: Our ventless dryers save a tremendous amount of energy and construction costs.
Lower Water Discharge Rate
Our machines have a water discharge rate that is less than a dishwasher and can easily be connected to existing plumbing lines without creating plumbing problems. Conventional top-load washers dump over 40 gallons of water at a 16 gallon per minute discharge rate. Our high-efficiency front-loaders have a discharge rate of 5.5 gallons per minute, and only use about 12-15 gallons per load.
These washers also use a fraction of the soap, so there is less impact on older plumbing.
Space is money in multi-family housing. Small footprints can make or break installations for in-unit laundry. All-in-one washer-dryer combos can install anywhere there is water and 110V electricity. That means that kitchen and bathroom installations are very feasible.
Stackable or side-by-side units can also fit into tight places. These units take up about 4 square feet of space when stacked. If there is a closet behind a wet wall of a bathroom or kitchen, the stacked sets are a perfect fit.
Low Maintenance and Operating Costs
Studies show that residents tend to wash more loads with in-unit equipment. However, front-loading washers use less than half the water of conventional washers, while maintaining capacity. Consequently, your water bills will stay the same or even decrease while your rents rise dramatically.
