Frequently Asked Questions

What are the 3 types of dryers?

>

A clothes dryer also called a "tumble dryer" or just a "dryer," has become an indispensable appliance in most households. Its intended use is to eliminate dampness from materials like clothes and sheets. Dryers are typically used after using a washing machine. Three types of the most popular dryers are vented dryer, condenser dryer and heat pump dryer.

What is the difference between a condenser, vented and heat pump dryer?

>

You have two things to consider when buying a dryer - the cost of purchase and the running cost of using the machine.

Condenser dryers are mid-priced and the most popular type of dryer. They expel hot air into a container as vapour which is condensed into water. The container will need to be emptied regularly unless it’s connected to the plumbing.

Heat pump dryers are generally the most expensive to buy, but are the cheapest to run out of all the dryers. They recycle and reuse the hot air generated rather than vent it outside. Instead like the condenser dryer, the water is extracted from the warm vapour and dumped into a tank which will need to be emptied often unless plumbed in.

Traditional vented dryers are the most affordable to buy but the damp air has to be expelled through a hose that is permanently fitted through an external wall or via a window. On average vented dryers will dry clothes the fastest but they are not very energy efficient, so will cost a lot to run.

Which type of dryer is best?

There are many different kinds of dryers on the market, and they all have their own advantages and disadvantages. Having said that, there is no one option that is superior to another. The right clothes dryer, rather, is a matter of personal taste, preferences and budget.

If you're looking for a dryer that has maximum energy efficiency and is cost-effective in the long run, your best choice would be a heat pump dryer since it creates hot air and reuses the heat from the air being exhausted during the drying process. If you want the best dryer performance-wise, a condenser dryer is your best bet since it's a powerful machine that can dry family -sized loads of laundry and dry clothes fast.

What type of dryer is cheapest to run?

>

When it comes to saving money, heat pump dryers are at the top of the list. Most heat pump dryers have an A+ or higher energy rating, making them the most efficient dryers and the most cost-effective to run.

Which is better a vented or condenser dryer?

>

If you're searching for a dryer that's easy to set up, a condenser dryer can be a good option because you don't have to worry about it blocking a door or window in your laundry room. A drawback is that you'll need to drain the collected water on a regular basis.

A vented dryer is more cost-effective than a condenser dryer, but it needs to be installed in an accessible area with proper ventilation. If you're looking for a machine that won't drain your bank account or your free time, this one is for you because it's more environmentally friendly and requires less upkeep. However, you need to make sure you have enough room to place one, so a condenser may be the best option for smaller houses or apartments.

Do heat pump dryers need to be plumbed in?

>

Heat pump dryers collect extracted water from drying in a tank that can be emptied into the sink. This eliminates the need to drill a hole in the wall or window and run a hose through it. They also typically don't require plumbing since the condensed water is stored in a tank that can be emptied manually. However, there are some that require a drain line to be attached to a sink, floor gully or drain outlet in order to drain the condensed water. Before you buy a heat pump dryer, it's best to check how to install the particular model to determine if it requires plumbing.

What are the pros and cons of a condenser dryer?

>

Condenser dryers provide many advantages, including not having a vent. Without a vent, a condenser dryer has less of a chance of getting clogged or damaged. It also doesn't need to be plumbed in which means it can be placed practically anywhere.

One of the disadvantages of a condenser dryer is it can be expensive. It's also not as efficient when compared to other dryer types . You also need to regularly empty the water. Its biggest drawback, however, is that condensed dryers are known to cause damage to clothes in the long run.
