How to choose the right tumble dryer for your home?

Although you can still find on the market evacuation dryer which are cheaper, the condenser dryers have substituted the first option, as they have optimized the drying process. This is done via a closed circuit of electrical resistors or a heat pump, so you can forget about the cumbersome evacuation tube.

Evacuation dryer

This was the first dryer available on the market. It uses a simple drying system, which means little goes wrong with it over time. It extracts air from the exterior and heats the air via electrical resistors to introduce the heated air to where the clothes are and then it expels via a tube which need to go out of a window.

Condencer dryers

This appliance uses a similar system to the evacuation dryer. However, the air is heated inside through a closed circuit which stops the air going into the exterior and introduces the air in to a refrigerate interchanger which condenses the humidity of the clothes. This way the air is reused for drying, avoiding the excess use of electricity.

Heat pump dryers

The drying process is the same as the previous dryers mentioned, the difference is that the air is heated via  a heat pump which is 3 to 4 times more efficient than another types of dryers and noticeably reduces the consumption of electricity.

Where to buy tumble dryers?

On the online shopping websites like Amazon or eBay you can find types of dryers of well known brands: Balay, Bosch or Indesit. Also, internet is an alternative which allows you to check the characteristics of each model with more detail and have a look at the opinions of other buyers that have bought the product.

Before buying it is important to consider the advantages and disadvantages of each type of dryer, to make sure it the best option for your home.

Tips for buying the ideal tumble dryer

Here are some important aspects to consider when buying a tumble dryer.

  • Firstly, it's important to verify where the appliance is going to be placed and the space available for it, this way you can correctly choose the size and model.
  • It is also important to know how much laundry is washed each week, this way you can calculate the capacity needed and choose accordingly.
  • Another detail to consider is the type of clothes you have, so you can buy a dryer with advanced technology that looks after the clothes.
  • Evaluate the humidity control, as it is an important factor if you want to make the ironing easier.

The definitive guide for buying a tumble dryer

Normally these appliance use a lot of electricity.  However, the more modern dryers have been made so that this inconvenience is reduced. For example,  an evacuation dryer of 8 kg of capacity when fully loaded will consume 4,8 kWh of electricity, whilst a condencer dryer uses 4,2 kWh and the heat pump dryer uses 2,2 kWh.

Regarding the price range, evacuation dryers are more economical, and they are usually around £180. The condencer and heat pump dryers double in price, but are more efficient and in the long run are a better investment because you will be saving on your electricity bills.

Evidently, with this shopping guide it will be easier to choose a tumble dryer suitable for your needs and your home.
