Background

Equator Advanced Appliances has forever changed the way Americans, and now families worldwide, complete household chores for a better quality of life.  When Mr. Atul Vir, current President and CEO founded the company out of his father-in-law’s garage based on the idea of an all-in-one washer dryer, critics met him with skepticism and doubt. Though common in the United Kingdom where he lived for years, the combo washer-dryer was still unfamiliar in the United States. 

But just after five years of launching the company, U.S. consumers who needed to save time, space, and energy loved the company’s skillful adaptation to doing laundry. Especially apartment dwellers and RV owners who were tight on space but still desired a convenient laundry solution. This quickly made Equator one of the fastest growing businesses in Houston for 3 years in a row.Its continued expansion of products and business growth is a result of a dedicated vision to designing and delivering appliances that make everyday tasks easy and staying committed to its responsibility as a global citizen.
Innovation

As the first company to introduce the combo washer-dryer to the U.S. market, now 30 years later Equator delivers a variety of innovative technology to customers in different countries.  Equator not only supplies its innovations in Canada, Mexico, India, Greece, and Spain, but NASA requested Equator appliances on manned missions to Mars.  

Equator has pioneered numerous innovations like its Super Combo washer-dryers capable of providing venting and condensing options, introduced the game changing Convertible Refrigerator + Freezer and also the 2 in 1 Cordless Sweeper + Mop.  It was also the first company to win the Energy Star designation for its environmentally friendly appliances. As a result, Equator is the proud recipient of several product design excellence awards from notable organizations such as ADEX, BestReviews, Cedia, Corporate Vision Magazine, International Housewares Association, RV Pro, Twice, and TechHome.

Hi-Tech Appliances

Equator Appliances are equipped with smart technology. The company offers a variety of innovative products, from easy-to-use dishwashers, sleek and sophisticated refrigerators, powerful and compact microwaves, and futuristic, space-saving cooktop burners. From sensors that detect the exact amount of water and heat needed to optimally wash and dry your clothes, and the Sweeper + Mop which operates and cleans itself without getting hands dirty at all.  The latest innovation is Equator’s high-tech built-in induction cooktop with both power and energy efficiency that can boil water in two minutes that leaves traditional gas or electric stoves struggling to compete. 

Health and Wellness

For the safety of families worldwide, the new Washer EW 835 and Combo washer-dryer EZ 5500 can kill contagions including the COVID-19 virus and allergens with the sanitize and allergen cycles.  We also have High performance range hoods which circulate the air from the home and Commercial refrigerators to store vaccines or other pharmaceuticals. 

Clean Energy

It has been well documented that natural gas and propane release nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide and other noxious gases into the air. Apart from being damaging to the environment, it is also harmful to anyone breathing this indoors.  Equator has therefore decided to only produce appliances that are powered by electricity.

User Friendly

Beginning with the design phase, every Equator appliance is designed with the end-user in mind. Products are compact and slim, enhanced with intuitive control panels with color codes, easy-to-read troubleshooting codes, WiFi capability, and now with QR codes on the appliance which eliminates the need of keeping track of bulky manuals or sifting through unnecessary details. Simply scan the code and easily access information.

Eco-Friendly

Responsibly managing the earth’s resources and limiting excess waste continues to be a top priority for Equator. We make products that save Energy, Water, and Detergent.  Our products also greatly reduce pollutants, which contaminate water resources.  Washers and Combo washer-dryers do not waste a single drop of water or detergent thanks to its smart technology that can measure out the exact amounts of water needed for an optimal clean.  Dryer heat sensors precisely dry clothes without wasted time or energy.  Refrigerators are Energy-Star approved for saving consumers on energy costs.  This is our global responsibility towards managing Earth’s resources and preventing waste, without any loss of performance.
