Though we’re not quite living in the age of the Jetsons, modern homes seem packed to the brim with appliances. While we seem to consume far more than we need when it comes to home gadgets and appliances, there are a few must-have appliances that your home shouldn’t go without.


If you’re looking to optimize your cleaning days at home, stick with us as we go through the top 5 cleaning appliances to buy for your home.



1. Washing Machine and Dryer

If you live in a modern household, having a washing machine and dryer is absolutely necessary. If you have an older home or a small apartment that is strapped for space, you may not have these clothes cleaning machines. Instead, you probably visit the laundromat.

Lucky for you, washing machines and dryers and far cheaper and much more energy efficient than they used to be. You could easily find a good washing machine for under $300 if you only need a small one.



2. Water Heater

A water heater is an essential piece of the modern household, even in areas where temperatures stay fairly warm. Think of how many things a water heater is responsible for in a home. It provides you with nice, long showers and hot water for doing dishes. You don’t really think about it until you don’t have hot water.

Unfortunately, there are many extremely old properties that weren’t built with water heaters attached. The good thing is, there are a wide range of high-quality, budget-friendly water heaters for those in small home. Most are universally made so that they fit to the plumbing in bathrooms or kitchens.



3. Vacuum Cleaner

Tired of sweeping your floors or trying to run your mop along the entire length of your house? This is where vacuum cleaners come in handy. You’d be surprised at how cheap you can find a good vacuum cleaner for. With that said, if you want one that is powerful, durable, and reliable, with added features, you might have to throw down a couple hundred dollars.



4. Dishwasher

A dishwasher cannot only save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars per year in water costs, but can also save you an average of 230 hours per year in time compared to washing dishes with your hands. Conventional dishwashers are a must-have for the modern household, especially if it’s a family home with plenty of dishes to be washed.



5. Extendable Duster

While the extendable duster doesn’t really match up to the other items in terms of cost, it is still incredibly important. Dust mites can trigger asthma symptoms if not taken care of properly. This is why it is important to dust weekly to make sure that you are breathing the freshest air possible. Extendable dusters help you to get into those hard to reach places.
