One of the more convenient examples of a tumble dryer you can buy is the heat pump tumble dryer. This variety of appliance are ideal for keeping your laundry in its best condition, using a lower temperature to ensure your clothes aren’t damaged.
But there’s a few more benefits to going for a heat pump tumble dryer that you should keep in mind when choosing your new machine. Read on to find out more:
How does a heat pump tumble dryer work?
Heat pump tumble dryers are tumble dryers that use what’s called a closed-loop heat exchange system.
This impressive piece of technology sees hot air circulate in the drum, absorbing and collecting the moisture from your laundry and then passing through an evaporator to transfer the water into a tank.
Once unburdened by the moisture, the air then goes back into the tumble dryer, to be reused again and again until the cycle is complete.
What are the benefits of heat pump tumble dryers?
So now you know how heat pump tumble dryers work, let’s explore what they bring to the table for your home and your family:
Unlike condenser tumble dryers, which require high temperatures to operate, heat pump tumble dryers reuse air to extract moisture – which makes them an excellent choice for keeping those energy bills down in your home. You’d also be doing your bit for the environment at the same time, by opting for a more sustainable option.
Less damage to clothing
Tumble drying your clothes regularly can cause damage, wearing away the fabric with higher temperatures. Heat pump tumble dryers are a great option if you’re concerned about tumble drying causing problems for your laundry – or if you have particularly delicate clothing in your wardrobe – requiring a lower temperature, and using moisture extraction as the main way to dry your garments.
In contrast to vented tumble dryers, which require a vent to extract hot air, the heat pump tumble dryer is contained entirely within itself. That means you can move it to wherever you want it in your home – whether in the kitchen, a utility room or a garage. You don’t need to install it – it’s a standalone appliance that can be moved as and when.
