CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- From our gadgets to our apartments, everything is getting smaller. Busy urbanites living the city life and an increase in micro apartment developments are driving the demand for smaller and more efficient appliances. The new Frigidaire High-Efficient Laundry Center is a space-saving option for consumers short on time and space who no longer want to spend their Saturdays at the laundromat.
"We developed a compact laundry center that combines speed, capacity and strong cleaning performance for all consumers – especially those short on time, living in tight quarters," said John Weinstock, Vice President of Marketing. "Fifty-eight percent of consumers are frustrated that their laundry takes too long and the growing, urban population is driving people to smaller dwellings. Our laundry centers take the load off by fitting in more loads of laundry and are perfect for consumers needing to save floor space without sacrificing capacity."
The ENERGY STAR® laundry centers are the perfect solution for people with space and time limitations. The washer and dryer are stacked and can fit in tighter areas, and can also clean and dry clothes in 45 minutes with special features like Quick Wash™ and Quick Dry™ cycles. The centers also boast a spacious, high-efficiency, 3.8 cu. ft. HETL washer and stainless steel tub, allowing consumers to wash and dry three days of laundry all at once.
To create even greater efficiencies, the washer also uses a flat rotating mechanism instead of an agitator, leaving additional space to fit more clothes, extract more water to decrease drying time, and gently handle clothes with less damage. Other key features include:
- Refresh Cycle: Reduce wrinkles with the refresh cycle for those times when your clothes finish drying before you need them.
- Moisture Sensor: Dries your clothes more precisely by sensing the moisture, reducing wrinkles.
- Timed Dry Cycle: Select your desired drying time limit that works with your schedule.
- Fabric Softener Dispenser: No more waiting for the rinse cycle since the fabric softener dispenser automatically dispenses fabric softener during the cycle.
- Energy Star: Save energy, save time. In order to save energy, the washer extracts more water from clothes during the spin cycle, reducing the drying time.
- 9 Wash Cycles: Features nine multiple wash cycles to meet all of your washing needs such as delicate, comforter, bedding and casual.
- 9 Drying Cycles: Offers nine drying cycles to meet all of your drying needs including Cotton/Towels, Refresh, Delicates and Heavy-Duty.
The Frigidaire High-Efficient Laundry center is available nationwide and comes in a new modern color, Classic Slate, to bring a new look to your laundry space at home. Visit www.frigidaire.com to find a local retailer as well as information about Frigidaire laundry and home appliances.
