© Condenser Tumble Dryer 2010/14
A condenser tumble dryer is similar in appearance to any other dryer, except it does not require an external vent which is associated with more traditional vented dryers.
The advantages of this are obvious as a condenser dryer can be positioned anywhere in your drying area and does not need to be located in an area where a vent can be installed to expel moisture from indoors.
From a user’s point of view, the controls for operating condenser and vented tumble
dryers are very similar -
In a vented tumble dryer, the air is pulled in from the surrounding area before being
heated up and distributed around the clothes while the drum is turning and moving
them around. Much of the water in the damp clothing is evaporated by the hot air
and then the moisture-
The process is significantly different in a condenser tumble dryer where the air
inside the dryer is sealed from the outside -
Another process is going on inside a condenser tumble dryer at the same time involving air or water, where room air is used as a heat sink and blown across the outside of a heat exchanger. This will lead to an increase in the heat of air inside your laundry room, but it’s worth noting that it’s only heat that is released, not moisture. Any moisture remains within the condensing dryer which can either be pumped into a pipe shared with your washing machine or stored in a water container within the dryer which can be emptied on a regular basis.
This is due to the fact they heat the air inside your home -
One great advantage of a condenser dryer is that it does not exhaust any air to the outside of your home, therefore, on a hot day a condenser dryer may be as good if not better than a vented dryer as far as overall energy usage goes.
A condenser tumble dryer can be very appealing due to the fact there is no need to plumb in any vent duct which is often a great bonus factor for people living in apartments or flats.
You should be aware that you will periodically need to clean the condenser unit to wash away any lint which has gathered. This involves sliding out the condenser module every month or so and is a simple enough task to perform.
A condensing dryer will normally cost you a little bit more than a vented appliance but many people find this a price worth paying to avoid the hassle of having to install a vent duct to the outside of their home.
