Tumble Dryers: Buying Guide

There are ample options when it comes to selecting tumble dryers in the market, making it difficult for you to choose right one for you. Read this article, it will help you in knowing the basic features of tumble dryer, and the things you should consider before buying one.

Tumble dryers are designed to spin wet clothes inside dryer cylinder with heated air, in order to dry wet clothes perfectly. There is a rotating drum, called tumble, in the dryer that circulates heated air to vaporise the moisture, from the load. Tumble dryer also facilitates transferring of clean wet laundry straight from washing machine. It also saves ample time in drying clothes on heavy loads.

What to look for before buying a tumble dryer

Firstly, list out your features that you want in the dryer in accordance to your need. There are basically two types of tumble dryers available, including vented and condenser tumble dryers. You can go for either of them, as there is no huge difference between them in terms of efficiency as well as consumption. Before you buy one, ensure that it has the feature of sensor, which works as a detector of the amount of moisture remaining in load and adjusts the drying time, accordingly. Dryer with sensors are more efficient in terms of saving energy than the ones that comes with timer mode. Make sure that your drying machine is capable of drying every kind of fabric, including wool and delicate fabrics.

Size matters

If you are living in a small space or have a small family, then compact tumble dryers will be ideal for you. You can get a compact dryer in H670mm x W490mm x D480mm with the drying capacity of 3 Kg. However, big sized tumble dryers are available in H850mm x W600mm x D600mm size with 6 Kg capacity. The former dryer is ideal in case of small space and small load capacity. Whereas, large dryer is good for large items like towels, bathrobe, bed sets, etc.

As drying clothes can consume lots of electricity, thus, always go for the most energy efficient dryer. Buying it can be little expensive than the other conventional dryers, however, it cuts down the running cost, significantly.

Zanussi ZTH485: As a previous owner of a Zanussi vented tumble dryer that worked without hitch for ~12 years, I had high hopes that a new, more modern version would be even better. Build quality and options offered appear good....but see bad points. Reevoo — 03-2014
