What is a heat pump tumble dryer?

They way Heat Pump tumble dryers work is quite simple. They use hot air to collect moisture from your clothing, passing it through several filters. This hot air is then re-used, meaning this type of tumble dryer uses a lot less energy than other models such as vented or condenser.

Using lower temperatures, heat pump models are kinder to everything you dry, so less likely to over dry and ruin your clothing. This does mean however, that heat pump models can take up to 50% longer to dry your garments, but it’s better for both the environment and your pocket!

Heat pump technology explained

Why choose a heat pump tumble dryer?

If you want to use less energy, be kinder to the environment and to your clothes then a heat pump tumble dryer is the perfect choice. Heat pump technology uses up to 50% less energy than a conventional B-rated condenser dryer. Since they use an energy efficient heat exchange system, the air temperature inside the drum is considerably lower than conventional dryers which provides the perfect protection for your clothes.

How does heat pump technology work?

Heat pump technology works by using hot air to absorb moisture from your clothes. Getting them dry after a wash, the heat pump dryer passes the air through the drum, into the evaporator which strips the clothing of its moisture, this is then collected as condensation and stored into a tank. The remaining air is re-heated and sent back to the drum to start the process all over again, continuing to dry your clothing until the cycle has finished.

How long does a heat pump dryer take?

People often don’t realise that heat pump dryers can take up to 50% longer than a conventional dryer. This is due to using lower temperatures to dry your clothes, but it’s worth the wait, as it protects the condition of your clothes, keeping them looking like new! Also, don’t expect your clothing to come out piping hot, this is often a misconception of heat pump tumble dryers. Using lower temperatures, your clothing is unlikely to feel hot once the cycle is finished.
