Tumble Dryers Buying Guide

Tumble Dryers Types & Styles

Your first decision is choosing your type of dryer: heat pump, condenser, or air-vented. Heat Pump Technology delivers best-in-class energy efficiency by removing moisture and recycling the air through the machine. Heat Pump Technology is kinder to the environment and offers impressive energy savings, with some models using 50% less energy versus a condenser dryer. A condenser - which uses warm air that has been circulated through a heating element, collecting moisture in a container which you regularly (and easily!) empty. Finally, we offer air-vented tumble dryers, which expel moisture via an external vent hose. Air-vented are much cheaper to purchase, but do have higher running costs when compared to heat pump or condenser dryers.

Choose from a stylish selection of black, white and graphite tumble dryers to suit your space. When it comes to drum size, this is calculated based on the weight of dry clothes that they can hold. Sizes typically vary between 6kg and 9kg. Your ideal tumble dryer will depend on how much washing you tend to get through each week, as well as the size and types of fabrics you tend to dry. If you regularly use your dryer to dry bulkier bedding and towels, you should consider a larger capacity drum.
