Kelowna Appliances: Which Washing Machine Configuration Is Best?

It used to be that when you shopped for your Kelowna appliances, you’d find washing machines in one primary configuration: top loading. Slowly, more front loaders crept onto the market before high-efficiency (HE) top-loading models shifted the balance yet again.

When it comes to buying new or used appliances, Kamloops, Vernon, and Kelowna homeowners have to first answer the all-important laundry question: Front load or top load?

Because more and more people are looking for ways to protect their pocketbook and the environment, high-efficiency top load washing machines are making their way into a lot of laundry rooms.

Where traditional top-loading washers need up to 50 gallons of water to cover all your clothes, a front load machine needs just a fifth of that amount—about 10 gallons. Throughout Canada, appliances bearing that ‘Energy Star’ government-approved efficiency label are attractive—it means you’re going to be saving money on your monthly hydro bill.

And older top loaders on average use up to 1,000 kilowatt hours each year; newer models can use even less than 100 kWh per year, plus they spin clothes faster to save you energy with shorter drying cycles.

Genier’s also carries a range of configurations and sizes of washers and dryers ready for everything from apartments for single that take up less than 24 inches to homes for growing families that do large loads in short cycles.

If you’re looking for a washer and dryer for an apartment or townhouse with a laundry closet, be sure to ask to see our line of stackable washers and dryers.

Your laundry appliances should suit your space and save energy, but they also need to clean and take care of your clothes. Top load machines are traditionally tougher on fabrics while front loaders can use gravity to give your clothes a better, more consistent wash while being gentler, too.

While many love the new front loaders, there are those prefer not having to bend their backs using a top loader, which can be just as efficient as a front loader.

Whatever your preferences and space, appliances such as washers and dryers are best explained by the knowledgeable, non-commissioned staff at Genier’s Home Appliances
