Dryer Repair Pro's Summer Budget-Saving Tips for Cash Strapped Families

Dryer Repair San Antonio Texas

We’ve got a question for you. Would you rather spend a lot of money doing your family’s laundry at home or save the cash for a rave-worthy, summer vacation? If you count yourself among the summer vacation crowd, check out our dryer repair pro’s budget-saving, laundry tips for the cash strapped:

Line or Rack Dry When Possible

Okay, so maybe this first budget-saving tip is a no-brainer. Nonetheless, we’d be remiss not to extol the virtues of line drying clothes. And if you’re shy about hanging the family’s panties up to dry where all the neighbors can see, don’t worry. You can still save some money by at least air drying heavy items like bedding, blue jeans and jackets.

Remember, Timing is Important

If you have to dry your family’s clothes indoors, consider using an interior drying rack system for as many items as you can. It’s also a great idea to use the dryer’s best settings for the situation at hand and only run the machine when you have several full loads of laundry to do. That way, you can maximize the dryer’s interior space and save money by not letting its drum cool down in between loads.

Keep the Laundry Room Door Closed

When you do decide to use the clothes dryer, be sure to turn on the dehumidifier and keep the laundry room door closed as well. If your laundry room has a window that opens up to the great outdoors, consider opening it up too. Doing so will reduce the risk of mildew formation as well as help keep the rest of your home cool.

Run the Heat Out of Town, Literally

This leads our dryer pros to another great, budget-saving tip. If you haven’t done so already, make sure that your dryer’s vent pipe leads outdoors. Otherwise, all of that extra heat, dust and moisture could decrease your home’s air quality and cause the HVAC system to work twice as hard.

Clean the Filter and Save the Lint

Finally, clean the dryer filter after every load and save the lint. It may be repurposed, reused and recycled for everything from summer crafts to weekend campfire fuel. Just make sure that you store it properly to avoid increasing your family’s fire risk in the process.
