Tumble dryers use more electricity than washing machines so it’s worth taking the energy rating saving system into consideration before buying.

Tumble dryers, including condenser dryers, are rated from A+ to G depending on the amount of energy they use, with the A+ grading being the best.

It's always worth studying the specifications of any tumble dryer - whether a vented or condenser dryer - before making a purchase to ensure it has an acceptable energy rating.

Typically a tumble dryer will use between 3.5 and 4.5 kilowatts of electricity to dry a full load of cottons and it's estimated that using a new tumble dryer four to five times a week will cost around £50 a year.

So it may be prudent to buy a condenser tumble dryer which has a better energy

Rating even if it costs a bit more, as you'll most likely make considerable savings further down the line as a result of lower electricity bills.

The majority of condenser tumble dryers have an energy rating of C (for example Hotpoint  and White Knight models) but there are others in the upper price ranges which have a higher rating.

It's a widely held view that condenser tumble dryers are better buys than their vented counterparts as far as energy efficiency is concerned. This is because much of the heat used is recycled, saving as much as 40% on electricity usage on a long cycle.

Of course, there are many things you can do when using a condenser tumble dryer to keep your electricity bills down and reduce your carbon footprint.

Useful tips to keep electricity bills down


>> Ensure your drying room is well ventilated as this will prevent your tumble dryer from overheating. Overheating can make drying times much longer.


>> Fill your condenser tumble dryer drum near to capacity each time you use it - of course without overloading.


>> Use a high spin speed on your washing machine to get clothing as dry as possible before tumble drying.


>> Separate your fabrics into groups and dry similar clothes together to reduce drying times and increase the evenness of drying.



>> Sensor dryer models are a wise investment as they can detect how moist your washing is and stop the machine when it is dry, avoiding electricity wastage by over-drying your laundry.


>> All your laundry items should be separated and loosened up after being removed from the washing machine and loaded into the dryer individually. Don't be tempted to load a compact bundle of garments straight from the washing machine.


>> Don't tumble dry extra large items such as duvets as there isn't room left for air to circulate effectively in the dryer and can cause overheating.


>> Ensure you clean your lint filter regularly as any blockage will stop a hot air from circulating properly, increasing drying times.


>> If your condenser tumble dryer includes sensor drying, start the whole load on an iron-dry setting, then remove clothes for ironing when the iron-dry setting is reached. Then finish the rest of the garments on a cupboard dry program setting.
