20 thoughts on “Heat Pump Tumble Dryers — Are they Worth It Or Best To Avoid?”
We have an old (20+ year) old cheap dryer. No heat pump. Use it 1 — 2 times per month. I don’t think a new one last that long. Also, most of the power comes from photovoltaic
I’m currently trying to decide between a vented dryer and heat pump dryer.
if you live in a country where the chinese brand haier is available, it becomes a no brainer choice
Thank you, I learned something useful today!
Here in Ohio we replaced twenty year old electric dryer with a Miele 120v model. Cost $800. No holes in house to vent. No 40amp 240v circuit needed. Definitely exceeded our expectations while significantly using less energy.
I for one, thank God and bless whoever invented the regular vented tumble dryer. I use mine daily, my ironing/steaming is close to zero, towels and laundry in general is fluffy and wrinkle free and soft, no walking in laundry hanging out to dry indoor or dust and pollen on laundry drying outside.
Or you could use a spin dryer and use about 2% of the energy any tumble dryer does.
Always very insightful
Best is outside dried, it uses Solar & wind, heat pump is second but only for emergency use
will the longer drying time (more tumble cycle) of heat pump not be more damaging to the fabric?
If the heat pump unit contains a refrigerant (such as Freon) there might be end-of-life disposal costs. Around here refrigerants must be drained and recycled by a certified technician, which is not free.
On the other hand we are also not allowed to use the domestic water supply for open-loop cooling, so if the condensing dryer uses a water mist to do the cooling and condensing that would be a no-no as well…
Given that the heat-pump ones recycle the air, I would assume that scented rinse/dryer agents (for static control and softer fabric) would leave a stronger scent overall than when using a dryer with an open-loop air flow.
The biggest selling point (that is not mentioned often) is that heatpump dryers are much more sensitive to clothes as they use lower temperature. Mine goes to max 60°C (yes, I put thermometer inside), while the old non-heatpump dryer was going much higher to like 95°C. With the heatpump one I can dry even items that are not allowed to be tumble-dried and they survive just fine. The cost saving is not so massive honestly as for the most of the year we run heating so the energy «wasted» in the dryer is not actually wasted
Wow, electricity is almost £1 per kWh here these days.
Thank you for the informative video
A friend of mine as a heat pump dryer, she complains about moisture and lots of condensation in the room, so much water is running down the wall. She was ok when she had a condensation dryer… is this a thing do they require a vent outlet as well
Have the Samsung 8 series heat pump, used to have Vented hotpoint….heat pump one is about 22p per load to dry & vented one was about 90p per load to dry…so for me using it at least once a day its well worth the money I’m saving and heat pump one will pay for itself in not too long really, so well worth it….also brought the washing machine that matches need the lower water used & also saves loads of energy too.
Don’t forget a vented dryer, unless it’s being vented into the house or is installed outside the house, creates a vacuum in the house because it is forcing air out of the house. That air is replaced by outside air that may be too hot, too cold, too dry or too humid depending on the season and where you live. The cost to condition that outside air seldom gets mentioned.
Perfect explanation thank you
I think the heat pump would be more favourable inside the house especially in warmer temperatures like the summer because the condensers heat the house when they are on making air conditioners work harder. I also like induction stoves for that reason.
Does a heat pump dryer run longer than a normal dryer? Just trying to figure out how with the same amount of wetness in the cloths, how does it use less power to dry?
