Buying new appliances for your home isn’t always cheap. So, purchasing the best one for your home is a must! And if you plan on purchasing a new dryer, knowing which one best suits your needs and wants for your home is vital.

That’s why Home Alliance is here to help you choose the best dryer there is in the market! Here are some things to keep in mind in looking for a new dryer:

Choosing the right type

When buying new dryers, questions often flood you like, “how much is your budget?”, “What size is appropriate for your home?” and so forth. Another thing you should think about is the kind of dryer you’re interested in. There are only two types of dryers [gas and electric], so this will be easy when buying a new one.

The actual cost of buying and operating one dryer over another might vary significantly depending on how each type of dryer utilizes energy. Therefore, making an informed choice requires an understanding of these distinctions.

Choosing the right size

Having the best dryer won’t be convenient if it's too big or small for your home. Know the average weight of your laundry and the measurement of where you’ll put your dryer to help you choose the best that would suit your home.

Choosing the right controls and features

Other than its intended feature [drying], most dryers offer different features. Some include essential elements and increased functionality. Know which one you’ll be comfortable with and start from there.

Choosing the right performance

Dryer performance refers to how effectively and quickly your garments will be dried by the dryer. A dryer's efficiency is determined by its performance while costing little. Choose a dryer with moisture or dryness sensors, wrinkle-free options for less ironing, and temperature options for a high-performance and efficient dryer.


Just because it's the best doesn’t mean that it should cost you hundreds of dollars. For example, most dryers cost $300 to $1,500. But some of the best might be shying away at $400 to $600. If the price of the dryer is a factor, pick the characteristics that are important to you before adding extra options to match your budget.


Having the best should also mean that it can withstand some tough hours of drying your laundry. Know how to properly maintain your dryer, but in case of emergencies, ensure that you know some of the best dryer servicing in your area that is qualified for your type of dryer.
