5 Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your On-Premise Laundry Equipment

5 Signs It's Time to Upgrade Your On-Premise Laundry EquipmentUnfortunately, commercial laundry equipment has a limited lifespan. If your washing machine is broken and can't be repaired, you obviously need to replace it. However, you may need to replace your washing equipment if it is still in good working order. How do you know when it's time to replace the washers and dryers in your business laundry? Many factors are taken into account, including the age of the current equipment and your company's needs. Not sure if your laundry operations are in need of an upgrade? Here are some indicators to look out for when considering new laundry equipment.

Your Utility Costs are Too High

If your utility bills are higher than you expected, it could be time to invest in modern, more energy-efficient commercial washers and dryers. These machines can help you save money on water and energy, whether you use natural gas, electricity, or both. Lower utility costs result from using less water, energy, and gas, which can have a significant influence on your profitability. You may also be eligible for tax credits or rebates if you purchase energy-efficient equipment.

You are Spending More Time & Money on Repairs 

Broken or malfunctioning equipment is inconvenient—and costly—both in terms of service repair costs and lost revenue while machines are out of service. Downtime should be avoided at all costs. Older washers and dryers are more likely to break down and require repairs, reducing revenues and raising maintenance expenses. You can avoid regular maintenance and downtime with newer commercial washers and dryers. 

You are Lacking The Technology Needed 

When it comes to technical advancements, the commercial laundry industry is no exception. The industry has experienced considerable technological improvements in recent years that can help increase reliability, efficiency, and loyalty. Keeping your on-premise technology up to date will help you stand out and attract customers. If your equipment is old and lacking in appealing features, it may be time to upgrade.  Some of our favorite features are Continental Girbau Super Speed Extract and the Logi, Logi Pro, and Inteli programming controls to customize laundry cycles.  On the side of the dryer our customers love USS Fire Sensing, Moisture Sensing Technology Linen Life Extension (LLE), and Premier Plus Touch Screen Control the CG Pro Dry+ machines

Your Laundry Needs are Growing 

If your laundry business is expanding, it might be time to upgrade your equipment. Newer machines are faster and more efficient, delivering better results in less time and extending the life of your linens. Additionally, updated laundry systems may be stackable or smaller in size, allowing for the installation of additional machines within the given area.

Upgrading on-premise laundry equipment can benefit a company in a number of ways, including improved results, increased efficiency, lower utility costs, and fewer service issues.  If you're thinking about upgrading your laundry equipment but are putting it off because of the cost, ask us about our laundry equipment lease program that where you pay a small monthly fee and it includes the cost of the machine, freight, installation, preventative maintenance, mileage, service call, labor, parts, and fuel charges. 

You are not Meeting your Business’s Laundry Demands 

In today's fast-paced world, no one wants to spend a whole day doing laundry. If you have an inefficient on-premise laundry room operations will slow. For hospitality and health care customers, large-capacity machines are preferable since they can handle larger loads and complete laundry faster. Modern commercial washers and dryers are also more efficient, completing each load of laundry faster while maintaining a better level of cleanliness. Bonus: If your laundry equipment runs smoothly, it will relieve stress. boost hygiene, and operational efficiency in your on-premise laundry.
