amazon FOR TUMBLE DRYERS
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 -
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.
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.

is and stop the machine when it is dry, avoiding electricity wastage by over-
>> 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.
