9. Why is this equipment
available? For many reasons
laundry owners remove good equipment. Some of our
equipment comes from an equipment dealer and he keeps the
latest Washers & Dryers in his laundry to use as a show room.
Others are laundry owners reequipping laundries for more
capacity or just upgrading equipment.
10. Will this equipment run in my
home? Yes & No. 3 Phase
machines will not run on household power. Single phase
machines will run in your home. Check under power
requirements to see what the machine will run on. Note:
Some of our machines are multiphase and they will also work in
your home. You must follow all manufactures instructions when
installing the machines. Hard Mount washers must be
bolted down to a concrete floor or metal base bolted to a
concrete floor. We can
assist you in selecting the right machine for any situation.

13. Why are the money boxes
not included? The money boxes are not included
because the keys match the other machines and are used in the
new machines to keep access simple. Money boxes are
14. Is Gas or Electric more
cost effective for my water heater and dryers?
Even with the higher gas prices gas is still more cost
effective than electric for many reasons. 1. If you were to
convert your dryers to electric you would also need to upgrade
your electric service by 10 to 20 times its current size, and
that will cost $$$$. 2. Even with propane at $2.50 a gallon
it's cheaper per BTU. 3. Electric is slower drying
requiring more dryers to get the same job done. 4. Gas will go
down in the summer and electric will go up.
15. How can I save on my
Efficiency, Efficiency, Efficiency! Can't say it
to many times.
1. Water heater set to 120 degrees F MAX.
2. Get rid of those 25 year old water heaters and upgrade to
something that is 97%+ efficient. If it doesn't vent in
PVC pipe it's not efficient enough. Instant water
heaters are NOT the answer.
3. Dryers. They need their makeup air. If you starve
them for makeup air they don't burn efficiently using more gas
to dry. Dryers require somewhere around 1.5 square foot
of makeup air per stacked dryer.
4. Maintenance, Keep you water heater & dryers in tip top
shape. Keep those lint screens & vents clean.
Lint screens should be cleaned EVERY day.
5. Get rid of the water guzzling top loaders and put in front
loaders. Saves on water, sewer & hot water. That's a 3X
6. High extract machines. Get the water out before they go
into the dryers. (Dexter Express models are 200G Force! NOT
"Up to" or "MAX" like the others.)
