First time poster and new laundromat owner. can anyone tell me what is the suggested heat temperatures for Huebsch stack dryers. High, medium, low and delicate?? I've heard anywhere form 185 to 165-high, etc.
So I need to change the lights in my laundromat. Right now I have T12s- and it is costing me a bundle. Unfortuantely/ fortunately my laundry is in a town that provides its own electricity so I don't have access to any grants (that I can find), but my bill is a bit lower then others (I've been told). I know I need to switch to a different light, but I am not sure which one has the best utilitiy cost vs. instalation cost ratio. Any info would help
NICOR Gas in Illinois is looking for a Laundromat to test gas savings technology products as part of their Emerging Technology Program. The Laundromat selected will be part of a test group of commercial Gas dryer users that includes a hospital, retirement home, and a hotel. The products being tested are in the final stage of the NICOR gas Emerging Technology Program, and once successfully tested in real world environments will be added to the NICOR Gas rebate & financing program.
The selected Laundromat will receive free of charge 1-3 gas savings products to include free installation. NICOR GAS will cover all charges for products as-well-as installation, and the Laundromat can keep the products after testing is complete.
Ideal Laundromat will be in the Chicago or surrounding area, and have 1-2 large dryers to test on 160k BTU to 250k BTU range. NICOR Gas will install sub-metering gas meters on selected dryers during testing duration.
Testing is scheduled to start in April 2013.
Only one of each use case (Laundromat, hospital, retirement home, hotel) will be selected. If you own a Laundromat in Illinois and are interested, please contact me via this site or call us at 520-266-1988. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
I am trying to figure out how to take my gas and electric bill and divide it up among the different types of machines I have- so I can understand if buying new machines makes sense. I know that my store is older that and getting new machines that are more efficient will save money (the distributors- who like to spend my money remind me everyday) - but new machines also cost a lot. So I want to be able to show myself what percentage of my gas and electric goes to the dryers vs. heating the water to run a mix of 4th and 5th gen wascomat machines and my very popular top loaders. Also what is the cost of simply running the washers machines themselves.
So it's the end of the month and 2013's off to a great start - we had our best month ever! I'm studying our income and expenses and I'd like to make sure my calculations are right. I typically hear utilities discussed as a percent of a laundromat's gross income. If you have a laundromat that offers WDF services, do you include the income from that in your utility calculations?
