6 Things to Consider When Buying an Automated Laundry System

6 Things to Consider When Buying an Automated Laundry System

When it comes to automated laundry systems, the market offers an array of options, each boasting a list of dazzling features and promises. But fret not, budding homemaker, for we are here to guide you through the various considerations accompanying your search for the perfect automated laundry system.

From system specifications, and installation to warranty, these 6 questions will no doubt help narrow down your search. Your choice goes beyond convenience. 

How quickly do you need your laundry to dry?

If fast-drying laundry is your key concern, the Solar Pro and Solar Sonic would be a great addition to your laundry routine. Both systems feature a 60ºC 8-Core Solar Drying and 8-way Win Direction to speed up drying laundry effectively. On the other hand, Solar Mini only offers a 60ºC Duo Core Solar Drying and a 4-way Circulator Blower.

The systems were designed to mimic drying under direct sunlight minus ultraviolet rays. The warm heat and air circulators will ensure your clothes stay soft and fluffy, never over-crisped. 

All Steigen automated laundry systems (except Flexi) offer 2 drying durations: A 3-hour and 6-hour option. The 6-hour Solar Drying is recommended for thicker fabrics (e.g. denim, wool etc.) or larger items (e.g. blankets, bedsheets etc). 

Are you facing space constraints? 

We got you covered–Solar Mini would be a fantastic solution! With a maximum length of 1.65m when fully extended horizontally, the Solar Mini can fit most tiny homes and service yards with irregular layouts too. Not to mention, collapsing the extended poles will make the system even more compact at only 1m in length. 

Do you need to minimise laundry odour and dust mites?

Solar Pro is the only Steigen automated laundry system featuring 2-in-1 Sol Ion™ to combat musky laundry odours and minimise dust mites on laundry. This system is recommended for homeowners with young children or individuals who seek allergy care solutions for their laundry.

Where/How do you want it installed?

There is a variety of automated laundry system brands in Singapore but only a few offer free installation. From concrete ceiling to false ceiling, L-bracket, and high ceiling (up to 3m), there would be zero additional installation costs at Steigen. Even wiring trunking is free of charge.

What is your ideal warranty coverage?

Rest assured that all Steigen automated laundry systems include a basic warranty of 2 years for the system parts and 5 years for the up-down lifting motor and LED lights. Go ahead and top up another $100 for an extended warranty of 1 year on system parts. Steigen has zero labour and transport costs for both during and after your warranty period. 

Do you wish to control the system via a mobile app?

This one is for our tech-savvy folks! All Steigen automated laundry systems (except Flexi) can be paired with the Steigen Home application for easier access. From setting weather-based triggers to task scheduling and receiving notification completion, the application allows the user to control the system 100% remotely. Plus, voice navigation is available on Apple devices. Psst…Unlike the remote control, the Steigen Home app allows you to toggle between 1-6 hours Solar Drying durations too.
