Dryer Buying Guide: Buying a Dryer
June 18, 2016 – 12:17 pm
Forget about the loud, clunky metal box in your parents' basement; dryers have come a long way. Recent advances in technology allow dryers to dry your clothes more effectively and efficiently, while sporting convenient new features such as smartphone integration, moisture sensors and remote diagnostics. Modern dryers also use a variety of techniques to reduce and avoid wrinkles, keeping your clothes smooth so you look sharp. Upgrading to a more energy-efficient dryer does a good deed for the environment while saving you money on utility bills each month. Whether you're replacing an old model or furnishing your very first home, read on to learn some of the most important new features and considerations to keep in mind when looking for a new dryer.

  • A dryer with a larger capacity will allow you to dry more clothes at a time.
  • Features such as a steam cycle, a reverse tumble drum and post-dry tumbling can help reduce and prevent wrinkles in your clothes.
  • If your current dryer doesn't have a moisture sensor, getting a dryer that does have this feature can help save money on your electricity bills.
  • If your current dryer is so loud that it distracts you from conversations, TV or sleep, getting a new dryer with anti-vibration or delayed start will help maintain peace and quiet in your home.
  • A dryer with smartphone integration will allow you to control the appliance from anywhere.
  • Getting a new dryer with remote diagnostics will make it easier for identify any repairs you may need.
  • Upgrading to a more attractive model can turn what used to be an eyesore into a source of compliments from guests.
