Laundry equipment offers reduced operating costs

Posted on September 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Electrolux says its full range of washer extractors and tumble dryers can make large savings for care homes. This includes the larger washers. In addition to the 7.5kg washer extractors, many larger care homes operate machines with capacities of 18 or 25kg, and the latest range of Electrolux equipment in this sector is said to have shown considerable reductions in operating costs. The W3180N, for instance, is said to use 44 per cent less water than the model it replaces, and a third less energy. With water costing upwards of £1.20 per cubic metre and electricity 6p/kw, this amounts to saving around 12p per wash ­ hundreds of pounds over the year. For the W3250N, the 25 kg model widely used for bedding, i.e. duvets, Electrolux says the electricity saving alone can be lOp per wash compared with competitive machines. “And the Electrolux 7.5kg machines save 13p per load compared with older models,” says Electrolux.
