Electric Pressure Washers Are Great for Many Buyers: Are You One of Them?

As you shop for the right pressure washer, you have three main options to consider: Electric pressure washers, gas pressure washers, and diesel pressure washers. At Pressure-Pro we offer a wide range of all types of pressure washers and we do not believe that any particular one model or type is best for every project or need.

That said, each project or need has one power washer that’s right for it. It may be that electric power washers are the right choice for your needs. Read on to learn more about this option and then feel free to reach out to us at 772-461-4486 or if you need assistance.

Pro: Great for cleaning

One of the most important things to know about electric power washers is that they are excellent for cleaning. That said, remember that this is not the same thing as stain removal. If you are looking for a heavier duty pressure washer to strip paint, then you should look elsewhere.

Con: It takes longer to clean with them

They do not have the same level of pressure you will get with an electric or gas option, which means that it does take longer to clean with them. This may not be an issue if you are using it clean your back deck, but could be an issue if you need a pressure washer to clean a commercial building.

Pro: They are quiet and relatively light

If you are worried about how loud power washers can get, then electric pressure washers are definitely the choice for you. The fact that they do not have gas engines means that they run much more quietly. Likewise, the lack of a gas engine makes them much more lightweight than other options. If you plan to take your power washer on the go, then an electric option is much easier to carry.

Con: Your available area of cleaning is reduced

When you choose electric power washers, you can use them within a cords-length of a power outlet. Even if you find an electric outlet near the area you need to clean, it will only work as far as the cord goes. Note that the hose for an average power washer is around 25 – 30 feet and the average power cord is around 35 feet.

Pro: They are more affordable

Electric pressure washers are more affordable for a number of reasons. First, they are less expensive to buy when you are shopping for a pressure washer. Second, they require almost no maintenance, which can save money on the long-term cost of running it. Finally, they do not require expensive parts and other upcharges.
