How to choose the right tumble dryer for your home?

Although you can still find on the market evacuation dryer which are cheaper, the condenser dryers have substituted the first option, as they have optimized the drying process.

Evacuation dryer

It extracts air from the exterior and heats the air via electrical resistors to introduce the heated air to where the clothes are and then it expels via a tube which need to go out of a window.

Condencer dryers

This appliance uses a similar system to the evacuation dryer. However, the air is heated inside through a closed circuit which stops the air going into the exterior and introduces the air in to a refrigerate interchanger which condenses the humidity of the clothes. This way the air is reused for drying, avoiding the excess use of electricity.

Heat pump dryers

The drying process is the same as the previous dryers mentioned, the difference is that the air is heated via  a heat pump which is 3 to 4 times more efficient than another types of dryers and noticeably reduces the consumption of electricity.
