New Next Generation Maytag® Commercial Laundry Dryers Solve Poor Venting Problems

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. - Because not every building was designed with dryer venting needs in mind, Maytag® Commercial Laundry developed TurboVent™ Technology for its Next Generation of Dependable Care and Super-Capacity Dryers. The Maytag brand exclusive TurboVent™ Technology offers 100 feet of venting capability to provide maximum performance and shorter drying times, while helping save energy costs in many poorly vented situations.

“We created TurboVent Technology because many apartment buildings, university housing, hotel guest laundry areas and even coin laundry facilities were designed without proper venting for laundry. Poor venting leads to poor drying performance and a serious waste of energy,” said Craig Kirchner, director of global commercial laundry at Whirlpool Corporation.

With TurboVent™ Technology, the blower spins 25 percent faster than previous Maytag® Commercial Laundry models, without affecting the speed of the tumbler. This extra speed makes it possible for the dryers to be used in longer vent installations, without sacrificing performance. Therefore, dry time is reduced even if the vent system is poor. It also helps reduce wear on internal parts.

Maytag Commercial Laundry dryers with TurboVent™ Technology are now available through authorized Maytag Commercial Laundry distributors.

Maytag Commercial Laundry products come standard with the Maytag® Extra-Protection Five-Year Limited Warranty and Maytag’s Built-To-Last™ feature to guarantee dependable products that require limited service repairs.
