Have you ever wondered how much it costs to wash and dry clothes at home versus at the laundromat? Sometimes, people who wash and dry at home never consider using a laundromat. Other times, it's the opposite. Some people don't want to own their own unit at home. No matter what your personal preference is, it's a good idea to take a look at the cost comparison of washing and drying at home versus the laundromat. If you're interested in opening a laundromat in NC or SC, call T & L Laundry Equipment. From new equipment to in-house financing, we can help you every step of the way!
In our previous blog, we talked about the costs of vended laundry equipment compared to residential washers and dryers. After thinking about this cost difference, you might realize that washing and drying at home isn't as inexpensive as you may have thought.
Of course, it’s impossible to purchase a washer or a dryer that could stand up to what is found in the laundromat for a reasonable price. Especially considering most homeowners don't need to have equipment that is so durable and long lasting. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t choose to use the laundromat anytime you need to wash your clothing.
In addition to the longevity of the lifespan as well as efficiency in cleaning, vended laundry equipment uses much less water and energy than residential equipment. For those that are interested in preserving our planet and hope to spend time doing their part to cut down on water and energy use, this is a great way to pitch in.
Even more, it takes around 600 uses to break even on a washer and dryer purchase for the home. That means, those that aren't washing a lot of loads and/or items per week might find that it's much cheaper to save the money on a residential washer and dryer and opt to use a laundromat.
