Tips for Buying the Best Budget Dryers
When you are shopping for dryers less than $500, keep these tips in mind:
You can buy a budget dryer for less than $500 but do not expect these to perform heavy-duty tasks. Budget dryers are small and are intended for small loads or single person use.
The advantage is that they are highly portable and consumes less electricity. The disadvantage is that you might not be able to dry certain items like massive comforters.
Do not buy a dryer without a returns policy or a warranty. Some dryers may require parts, especially door handles and belts, replaced in a year or so. Therefore, it’s important to have a warranty at hand.
Most budget dryers are durable. However, it’s recommended to handle these appliances with care. Parts like door hooks can get broken easily on smaller machines.
There are different types of dryers, mainly tumble and spin. Tumble dryers completely dry wet clothes. Spin dryers might not. Spin dryers can make clothes least wet enough to line dry quickly.
There are new types of heat dryers that dry clothes by emanating heat, and do not make clothes spin or tumble. These dryers are very cheap and also quite small. These dryers are ideal for use in small apartments or dorms by one or two people.
