People who do their laundry can testify to how a washing machine is an indispensable part of their household. The amount of time and effort washing machines save makes them completely worth the investment. However, to get the most out of your washing machine, it’s imperative you consider certain important factors when purchasing a model. This will help you make the right choice and extract maximum convenience from your washer. Below, we’ve listed the factors that can help you choose a washing machine model for your home.
Washing Machine Price
The most important criterion while purchasing a washing machine is your budget. Once you’ve determined the amount of money that you’re willing to spend on your washing machine price, you can filter the relevant options accordingly. Moreover, doing this can make the choice easier, as you can narrow down your choices based on the washing machine price.
You can use the price filter at the Bajaj Finserv EMI Store, which will display all the options available in your price range. For instance, if you wish to buy an LG washing machine priced under Rs. 50,000, you can use the brand and price filters to display all results in that category. Additionally, the Bajaj Finserv EMI Store has some of the best washing machine prices owing to exceptional offers and discounts.
Once you know your price range, the first thing you should ask yourself is how you would utilize your washing machine. For this, you need to take into account the size of your family, the frequency of your laundry and your laundry habits.
Larger families need washing machines with a higher capacity. For small families with 1-2 members, a machine with 5-6 kgs of capacity is recommended. For 3-4 members, 7 kg is the recommended capacity, and for larger families of 5-7 members, 8-10 kg is ideal. However, if your laundry size is large and the frequency is high, go for a higher capacity.
Effort of Usage
The next factor that you need to consider is the amount of effort that you’re willing to put in while doing your laundry. If you’re comfortable with some amount of manual intervention in the process, you can purchase a semi-automatic washing machine. With a semi-automatic washer, the user has to manually perform some tasks such as filling the tub with water, and transferring the clothes from the washer tub to the dryer tub.
On the other hand, if you want a machine that carries out the entire washing process without manual intervention, a fully-automatic washing machine is the ideal choice. A fully-automatic washer completes the washing process on an automatic program, so you can engage in other chores or just sit back and relax. That said, fully-automatic washing machine prices are higher than their semi-automatic counterparts.
Another important factor to consider is the type of washing machine. On the basis of load (and door) placement, there are two categories of washing machines — top-load and front-load. Clothes are loaded from the top in top-load machines, whereas the same is done from the front in front-load machines.
If you want an affordable, low-maintenance washing machine, go for a top load washing machine. Conversely, if you’re ready to pay more for an efficient and environment-friendly washing machine, choose a front-load model.
The space where you plan to install your washing machine plays a crucial role in the washer you choose. Firstly, it’s advisable to measure the dimensions of the space where you want to keep your washer, and buy a model that easily fits in that space. Furthermore, you must check whether or not the floor of the space in question is levelled. An unlevelled floor can cause permanent damage to the washer down the line. If that’s the case, you can install supports to keep your washer on an even platform.
Secondly, most machines need plumbing installations. You should ensure that the planned space of installation has the necessary plumbing and electrical installations. If there isn’t, check with a plumber whether arrangements can be made for the same.
If you have additional requirements in terms of washing your clothes, you must check out the wash features that satisfy those requirements. There are countless features and wash programs in washing machines that cater to different needs. For instance, if you live in a humid place that experiences heavy rainfalls, you should choose a washer with a monsoon drying feature. This feature facilitates quick drying of clothes, and thus eliminates the odour of damp clothes.
Once you’ve decided the type and features of your preferred washing machine, you can compare similar models by different brands. This enables you to get the best washer at the best price. For instance, you might find an LG washing machine priced lower than a similar washing machine by Samsung.
Now that you have all the relevant information on how to choose a washing machine, you can head over to the Bajaj Finserv EMI Store and bring home your favourite model. You can pay for the washer in easy EMIs, and get the washing machine delivered to your doorstep within just 24 hours of placing the order.
