Details to consider when installing your new Automated Laundry System

So, you’ve decided to take the plunge and get an automated laundry system for your home. Before installation starts, there are a few important details you need to consider first. 

In this article, we’ll go over what those details are so that you can make the best decision for your new automated laundry system.

Things to consider before starting installation

There are a few things to keep in mind before your new automated laundry system arrives. Here are a few details to consider:

  • Measure the space you have available for your new system. You’ll need to make sure you have enough room for any other appliances you plan on using in the same space. Usually, this would be done via an onsite measurement session by the vendor’s consultant, if they don’t provide such services, make sure to draw out a diagram with all the measurements in there.  
  • Think about how you want to connect your appliances. The area where you’ll need to install the laundry system might have other appliances that need access to power outlets (e.g dryer). The laundry system will need an outlet, thus it is important to make sure there are enough to support all your appliances. If you’re very particular about visible wires, it is a must to consult an electrician and explore how to conceal the wires.

  • Consider your power needs. Some automated laundry system require a higher amperage(amp) power (e.g. 15 amp), so make sure your electrical outlet has that support.
  • Room placement. If your automated rack comes with a heat fan and is installed in an open air environment, the hot air from the rack’s heater will escape and won’t be able to heat the damp laundry efficiently.
  •  Plan for maintenance and repairs. Like any other piece of machinery, automated laundry systems require regular maintenance and occasional repairs. Be sure to ask your Vendor about the process during the installation.
