With Singapore’s insane weather, it’s nearly impossible for a household to not have air conditioners installed. The feeling of stepping home to an air conditioned home after a hot day out is always comforting.

7. Washing Machine/Dryer

As one of the most efficient and convenient household appliance, washing machines/dryers has helped saved us a lot of the time and effort put into manually washing clothes.

When purchasing a washing machine/dryer, here are some of the things that you should consider if you’re looking between a top/front load washing machine:

1. Energy Efficiency

Front load washing machines are generally more expensive than top load washing machines. However, this is because front load washing machines are known to clean better and are more energy efficient.

2. Space

A front loading washing machine is more space friendly because you will be able to place other items on top of your washing machine. Such as your detergent, softener or your laundry baskets.

3. Performance

Front load washing machines tend to be gentler on clothes because they tumble wash them. This is suited for those with lots of delicate clothing such as lingerie, chiffon, lacey and any sheer fabrics.

Top load washing machines either spin your clothes or twist them around a pole to get the dirt off. Thus, top load washers are more suitable for heavy duty clothing (jeans, sturdy cotton) which are able to withstand such vigorous movement.

Average cost of a decent washing machine: $1,000
