Accessory Dwelling Unit Appliances You’ll Love
There are many important steps to ADU development. Often the most overlooked step is when you plan what appliances will go into the unit. That is why we have put together a few accessory dwelling unit appliances we are sure you will love!
ADU HVAAC Systems
Heating and cooling your ADU doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. It can be done efficiently by installing a mini-split system, or ductless mini-split air conditioners and heaters. These systems take up less space and are a lot easier to install than a fully ducted system. They are also much more efficient than window-mounted appliances.
ADU Water Heaters
Water heaters typically come with tanks that can take up a lot of space in a compact unit. However, you can get a tankless water heater that not only saves you space but also money.
Tankless water heaters are 99.8% energy efficient and can save you up to 60% on your water heating costs.
Over The Range Microwaves
Cooking in a compact space can get smokey rather quickly. That is why you need a vent in your kitchen. However, you should also always be looking for ways to combine appliances, which is why an over-the-range microwave is perfect for ADUs. These appliances are a microwave and vent in one.
You save space on your counter by mounting your microwave and get to benefit from having a vent in your kitchen!
ADU Laundry Appliances
Laundry is not exactly a necessity, but it makes life a lot easier when you do not have to walk to the laundromat to do it. Therefore, you should plan to incorporate laundry into your development plans.
A great option to consider is stackable laundry units. Washers and dryers that stack on one another take up less floor space than those that do not. You lose vertical space but save on valuable floor space.
Another good option is to buy a 2-in-1 washer and dryer combo. This combo is small and compact to fit neatly in any closet or under a countertop.
