Brand New Green System for Clothes Drying spotted by this Salem, Oregon Home Inspector

Home Inspector with Perfection Inspection, Inc.

The United States have has seen a definete movement toward energy efficiency and "going greeN.  As part of my business model I try to stay on top of and educate myself on the very latest in information that is out there in regards to home inspections, building science, home maintenance, appliances and so on.  A large part of this education recently has been a “green” movement that hopes to do more with less and improve efficiencies in general.

One of these brand new technologies has to do with clothes drying.  This technology, unlike most “green” innovations actually is cost effective.  It is relatively inexpensive and it can even pay for itself in a few short months. (unlike most other “green” products)

I am happy to share this wonderful advancement I spotted in Salem, Oregon with you and I hope that you will keep me up-to-date if you see a wonderful industry disruptive technology.

Jim ~ I think I saw one of those land in my neighbor's backyard.  Are you sure it's not an intelligent life form of another planet, seeking to steal our green ideas?

Hi Jim: That's great - loved it.  I remember we had one that was identical to that when I was a toddler.

My dearly departed Mother was a big fan of the clothes-line.  She hung bed sheets "out to dry" almost all year long.

There is nothing better than the smell of "line dryed" sheets.

Now that's "out of the box thinking!"... Do you think it'll ever catch on? Happy New Year!

Those were the days. We all remember those quite well. Time for something "old" to be "new" again.

Rene`:  It is probably not expensive and trendy enough!

Robert: Yep, A little common sense may go a long way.

That's what I was thinking... no remote control, or auto rotating device so it turns as the day goes by...

I remember every yard had a clothes line when I was small. Laundry hanging out to dry was part of the landscaping in those days :)

Brand new indeed.  That will never work.  Drying clothes without natural gas, electricity or static free sheets!?  Good luck with that!
