condenser dryer

No Venting Needed

  • Condense the moisture inside the dryer into water then pump it into a water tank or out through a hose to the drain depending on the model.
  • Don’t need to be vented or ducted to expel hot air outside so they’re simple to install and great for when you’re renting.
  • Increase the moisture levels in the room so ideally should be in a well-ventilated room to prevent potential condensation and mould growth.
  • Need to have the water tank emptied after each use or a hose installed to channel the water directly into the drain or sink.
  • Are generally more expensive than vented dryers.

sensor dryer

Smart Sensors Save Energy

  • Use sensor technology to detect when clothes are dry then stops to save energy and prevent over-drying that can damage clothes.
  • Have front and/or rear venting.
  • Allow you to choose how much humidity you want left in your load – for example it’s easier to iron with 8-12% humidity in the fabric and it also saves energy.
  • Are more expensive than timer-only driers but do save you on your energy bills because they only dry clothes for as long as is needed.

vented dryer

Affordable with Outside Ducting

  • Blow hot air through the clothes which evaporates the water, then the hot humid air is blown out of the dryer to the outside of your house through a venting duct.
  • Generate a lot of warm, moist air so need to be ducted outside or in a well-ventilated laundry to prevent mould forming on walls and ceilings.
  • Are the cheapest dryers to buy but running costs and how much this works out to be on your power bills should be considered.
  • Either come with a ducting kit or the ducting kit is an optional extra.
