Things to Think About Before Buying a New Washing Machine

14th Nov 2022

If you're in the market for a new washing machine, there are a few things you'll want to keep in mind. Whether you are looking for a new washing machine to replace an old one, or are buying one for the first time, there are a few things to consider to make the machine last longer and make your life easier. In today's blog, NuvoH2O will talk about some of the things to think about before buying a washing machine!

Buy According to What You'll Need

If you are the only one in your house, then buying a small washing machine could be enough for you. But you couldn't necessarily buy a small machine for a home with a lot of people. At that point, you would be overworking the washing machine which could translate into the machine breaking before it should.

What Type of Water Do You Have?

This is an important question because the type of water you have will play a big role in what kind of washing machine you buy. If you have hard water, then you'll want to look for a water softener or water filter. This can mean your machine works more efficiently and has a lesser impact on your clothes.

The Type of Water Will Determine What Detergent You Use

If you have hard water, using a water softener can help to cut down on the amount of detergent you use. This is because, with hard water, there is a mineral build-up on clothes which can make them more difficult to clean. A water softener helps to remove these minerals, making it easier for your detergent to work and meaning you can use less of it.

Consider the Cost of Operating the Washing Machine

While the initial cost of the washing machine is important, you also need to consider the long-term costs. This includes not only the cost of water and electricity to run the machine, but also the cost of detergent and any repairs that may be needed. If you are looking to save money in the long run, then you might want to consider a more expensive machine that is known to be durable and have fewer repair needs.

Install a Water Softener System for Your Washing Machine

If you are planning on buying a new washing machine, having a water softener system in place can be beneficial for your machine and can save you money in the long run. Reach out to NuvoH2O today to learn more about our water softener systems and contact an installer near your area!
