Tumble dryers are essential in the home thanks largely to the great British weather. It’s great to get the washing out on the washing line in fair weather, but in the colder months having clothes drying all over the house leads to musty smells and damp in the air. Tumble dryers were once seen to be a real drain on energy and bills, but now models like condenser dryers can be really economical.
Condenser tumble dryers can be freestanding or integrated into your kitchen and condenser models just need to be plugged into an electrical socket with no vented hose required. This is a great option for many homes as it means they don’t have to be near an external wall. They use condensing technology to expel internal hot air and dry your clothes to a setting of your choice. They work by condensing the warm air from the wet clothes into water,.The water is then collected in a tank, or a ‘reservoir’ which should be removed and emptied after every cycle. Alternatively, they can be directly connected to a water outlet to drain the water during the cycle. Also remember to empty the lint filter after every cycle to make sure your dryer can function without interruption.
