Stacked Crossover washer and dryer
A smart customer of ours who is a keen operator recently upgraded his stacked dryers. The dryers were only eight years old. The benefits of upgraded equipment early like this are many:
- You are operating under warranty more. If you replace at 8 years and 5 of those years were under warranty then you are only paying for parts for 3 years.
- Service costs rise as the equipment gets older. You eliminate that cost by upgrading quicker.
- Newer equipment intimidates potential competitors. Would you rather put in a laundromat next to a run-down laundromat or a laundromat with shiny, new equipment?
- Customers like the new equipment.
Monte Potts and Ken Knodel teamed up for this new installation in NE Oklahoma. The generous pad made installation easy. The space between the washers can be used to store chemicals.
Here is an example of a great laundry room design. This is a nursing home facility. Note that the laundry has been split into two rooms: one for soiled linens that contains the washers and one for clean linens that contains the dryers.
The washer room has plenty of space in front of the washers, is clean, is well-lit, has room behind the washers for repair work, and is walled off from the clean room.
Someone read 8-10" on a plan and just decided to make the concrete pad 18". We got these Wascomat washers installed anyway.
