Save Electricity Bills When Drying Laundry With Steigen 

Oct 01, 2020

Always puzzled as to why your electricity bills are constantly sky-high? It might be the type of laundry dryer you are using!


Dryers are infamous for being big energy users. A 5000w dryer alone can use up to 7800 kilowatts of energy in its lifetime (approximately 5 years)*. That’s going to set you back a whopping $1528.80 on its electricity bills. 


But what if we told you that there is an all-in-one dryer system where you can save money, electricity and time? If you haven’t heard, our Steigen laundry drying systems do all that and more!


When you are on a budget, the usual instinct is to minimise your expenses as much as you can. However, there are times when investing in a little money on the right household product can help you save more in the long run. 


Here’s how you can save money (and time) over time without missing out on all the laundry essentials:

 

Utilising solar heat, our laundry systems effectively eliminate germs and odour with a tap of a button. The Solar function is rated at only 0.72 kWh which is at least 9 times^ more energy efficient than a conventional dryer. 


Ultimately, bringing you to a total of 14 cents for just an hour of Solar consumption! In a span of a 5-year usage (3 hour cycle, two times a week), you would only be spending a total of $220.15# on its electricity bill which is 85% cheaper than a regular tumble dryer. 


One of the reasons why laundry day is so dreadful is also because of the time it takes up. It is a task most of us never have the patience to wash or dry. If time is never on your side, change the way you do laundry with Steigen

 

The inbuilt Solar heaters in the system emit up to 60°C warm air currents that effectively dry your garments in a matter of hours. Coupled with the air circulators, the Steigen system overall dries laundry 8 times+ faster than natural outdoor breeze. 


With Steigen, you never have to worry about the rain too as everything is done indoors. Plus, the system comes with an inbuilt ioniser and ultrasonic technology that helps eliminate airborne allergens such as pollen, bacteria and dust mites – leaving you with a fresh and more hygienic load of laundry.


If you’re constantly pressed for time or always worried about racking up a huge number of electricity bills, it’s time to change up your laundry routine with a Steigen laundry system. After all, you deserve the best help money can buy because your time is priceless.

 

^ Energy consumption audit calculation formula and information from SP Group. Based on SP Group July 2020 at $0.1960/kWh (w/o GST).
* 3 hour cycle, two times a week for five years: 
5 kilowatts x 3 hour-cycle = 15 kilowatts
15 kilowatts x 2 times a week = 30 kilowatts
30 kilowatts x 52 weeks = 1560 kilowatts
1560 kilowatts x 5 years = 7800 kilowatts
7800 kilowatts x $0.1960/kWh = $1528.80
 
#Calculations based on a Solar Ultra. Based on SP Group July 2020 at $0.1960/kWh (w/o GST).
0.72 kilowatts x 3 hour-cycle = 2.16 kilowatts
2.16 kilowatts x 2 times a week = 4.32 kilowatts
4.32 kilowatts x 52 weeks = 224.64 kilowatts
224.64 kilowatts x 5 years = 1123.2 kilowatts
1123.2 kilowatts x $0.1960/kWh = $220.15
