Stacked washer dryer: the pros and cons
When purchasing a one-piece stacked washer dryer, you usually have two options: a 24-inch stacked washer-dryer or a 27-inch stacked washer dryer.
These devices are part of the all-in-one units, but some people choose instead to opt for single devices that install on top of the other with an installation kit.
While the choices are more limited for all-in-one units, some people have no choice but to opt for these kinds of devices. Due to limited space, they must purchase a 24-inch stacked washer-dryer.
To give you the truth about all-in-one devices, here are some advantages and disadvantages of this type of device
Saving space: this is THE biggest advantage of this type of device. We make the most of our space in height, which is generally more difficult to do in a house or in an apartment.
Facilitate assembly: assembly is much simpler and you can be sure that everything will fit. When you buy a separate washer and dryer, you need to make sure they sit on top of the other because some appliances are incompatible.
Save on water used: A front-loading washer uses significantly less water and energy than a top-loading washer. You will therefore help reduce the consumption of drinking water.
Energy efficient: for a single person or a small family, no need to have large appliances. By choosing a 24-inch washer-dryer, you will reduce the energy consumption required for your wash.
More ergonomic: with a higher dryer, you will be less leaning. So we take the wet laundry out of the washer and put it in a basket that we can put on a small table at our height. Then, we insert the laundry directly into the dryer at our height.
Least Capacity: A 24 inch stacked washer dryer is ideal for small places and small families. If there are four of you, this probably won't be enough to meet your needs. You will need to opt for a 27 inch stacked washer dryer if you have enough space.
Not designed for small people: If you're not very tall, you might have a little trouble putting wet laundry in the dryer. You will definitely need help to make this happen. A small bench close at hand would be helpful.
Simplistic design: Unlike other types of appliances, all-in-one stacked washer-dryers often offer a fairly simplistic design and rather limited options.
