Obviously this website is convinced about the benefits of choosing a condenser tumble dryer over a vented alternative - but it’s worth taking a look at the pros and cons of each.

The biggest plus factor for the condenser tumble dryer is the fact it does not require a ventilation hose kit, unlike a vented tumble dryer.


Decision time -  vented or condenser tumble dryer?

This really is a great benefit as it gives you complete freedom and flexibility to locate your dryer anywhere you wish in your utility room or washing-drying area in your home.

This factor alone has led to many people making the switch from vented tumble dryers to condenser dryer alternatives.

Few people relish having to provide a purpose-built vent outlet in their wall to the outside of their house - and just hanging the hose outside the window is not ideal, especially if you want to carry out some drying while you are out of the house.

Also a condenser tumble dryer is the best appliance to have if you decide to move home. Simply unplug it and load it into the removal van - and there’s no fuss setting up new arrangements for a hose system in your new home.

Admittedly condenser tumble dryers can be a bit more expensive than vented alternatives, but they can save you money in the long

run as they are often more energy efficient. This is because much of the heat is recycled in the machine.

A condenser tumble dryer doesn’t need venting because the steam which is generated in the drying process is condensed into water which is then collected in a water tank. The water tank is then emptied when the water level indicator on the dryer shows it is full.

Some condenser dryers come with the facility to plumb them into your washing machine allowing the water to be pumped out through its plumbing system.

A vented tumble dryer operates differently by taking the damp air generated in the drying process out of the house via a plastic hose, thereby preventing condensation.

There are, of course, many factors and features which are common to both condenser and vented tumble dryers - the example, they will all have a filter which collects loose fluff and fibres. This is usually on the inside of the tumble dryer’s door and needs to be emptied regularly to prevent overheating and keep drying performance to an optimum.

Most machines have two settings for synthetics and cottons, while some have an additional setting for delicates. Dryers will also have a timer or sensor for controlling the length of the drying cycle. Other features which may be found in both types of dryer include a cool hair setting which is used to freshen up fabrics which have been stored away for a while. Reversed tumble is also a common feature is excellent for preventing your garments from getting tangled.

At the end of the day it’s up to the individual to make their own choice - but, taking everything into consideration, we believe a condenser dryer wins the debate hands down.
