Tips For Picking The Right Power Washer – Gas vs. Electric Pressure Washers…

When you need a thorough outdoor cleaning, such as your driveway or siding, nothing executes the task as effectively and efficiently as a pressure washer. A pressure washer can remove mud, algae, gum, loose paint, and more. But there are a number of models available and each is different. If you are like many buyers you will be comparing the pros and cons of gas versus electric pressure washers. For instance, some might be great for your patio but won’t reach the second floor. How do you decide which is best for you?

Gas Powered Pressure Washers

There are light, medium, and heavy-duty pressure washers that use a gas fueled engines. That engine supplies power to the water pump that’s connected to a water hose to produce the pressure needed to wash anything from cars to buildings. People who worked with pressure washers over the years only had the option of a gas powered engine and they often want to stick to whet they know. The biggest advantage of the gas powered engine is it does not need to be plugged in so it is very mobile. However that could be a disadvantage is some instances where you want to clean an enclosed area such as a basement and the fumes from the gas powered pressure washer would be dangerous.

Electric Powered Pressure Washers

Electric pressure washers are less popular because electric pressure washers are relatively new to the scene. Electric pressure washers can plug into a power outlet and don’t require gas to function. This means you won’t need to have fuel on hand for the machine to run. They are less money to purchase and are quieter to operate. Since they don’t produce exhaust, they can be used indoors, when needed. That makes them perfect for use in a warehouse or car wash. They also do well around the home and are great for cleaning patios, driveways, and more. The downside to the electric pressure washer are they do not have the same amount of power as a gas pressure washer. For this reason professional pressure washers are almost always gas. Because the electric pressure washer is not as common they also do not have as many accessories.

Are you still not sure which pressure washer is right for you? You will have to decide where you want to use the pressure washer, what is your budget and what you will be cleaning. With the outline we gave on both types you should be able to decide which is best for your personal use. However,always feel free to contact a professional about your purchase if you are undecided.
