What Is A Heat Pump Dryer?

A heat pump dryer uses clever tech to create and evenly distribute warm air to dry your clothing. It continuously reheats and recycles the same air back into the drum. They naturally dry at lower temperatures so they’re gentler on clothing.

How Does A Heat Pump Dryer Work?

As the name suggests, a heat pump tumble dryer pumps hot air to absorb moisture from your clothes. This air passes through the drum and goes through an evaporator, which removes the moisture. This is then collected and stored in a tank, and the remaining air is reheated and used to continue drying your clothes.

Can You Wall Mount A Heat Pump Dryer?

Heat pump tumble dryers can’t be wall mounted. However, they do not require plumbing, so they’re still a great choice if you’re looking for flexible setups. They can be stacked above a front load washing machine using a washer dryer stacking kit (these are sold separately) or they can sit on a floor – the choice is yours!
