Advice on dryers

Which dryer you buy depends on the amount of laundry you want to dry and whether you're looking for an energy-efficient dryer. If you have a drain, you should opt for a dryer that you connect to the drain with a hose. This means you no longer have to empty a condensation water tank. Here, you can read about what to keep in mind when buying a dryer.

Choosing a dryer

Heat pump dryer vs condenser dryer

When buying a dryer, you can choose between a heat pump dryer or a condenser dryer. With both types of dryers, the water ends up in a condensation water tank or can be removed via the drain. An A+++ heat pump dryer is most energy-efficient and is better for the environment and your clothing. With class B, a condensation dryer is least energy-efficient.

Energy consumption

The energy label of a dryer shows you which energy label the dryer has. This tells you whether the appliance uses a lot of energy or not. If you want an energy-efficient dryer, you should opt for an A+++ heat pump dryer. This will help you save up to € 75 per year compared to using a condenser dryer.

Load capacity

Which dryer suits your household depends on its load capacity. Want to dry as much clothing as possible in one go? If so, carefully look at the load capacity of your dryer when buying it. Carefully read through the advice once more if you're not sure how much kilos you need.

Noise level

If you want to install your dryer close to your living room or bedroom, you should keep its noise level into account. A silent dryer has a noise level of up to 64 decibels. You can find this information on the energy label. In this case, you won't be bothered by any noise.

Build quality

Do you want a good dryer that will last a long time? If so, opt for a dryer with a high-end building quality. In the high-end range, there are models available with a self-cleaning condenser. With these models, the heat exchanger rinses itself while drying, which makes sure the dryer is energy-efficient.

Condensation efficiency

Condensation efficiency dryer

A dryer collects the water from your laundry in a condensation water tank or removes this via the drain. In addition to this, a part of the water always escapes via the drum door. We call this moisture emission. Want to install your dryer in a small room? If so, purchase a dryer with a condensation efficiency of 5% or less. This way, you won't have mold on your walls.

Buy a dryer

In short: if you buy a new dryer, you should take several things into account. Do you want to dry energy-efficiently and protect your clothing? If so, opt for a heat pump dryer. In addition, make sure that you choose a dryer with the correct load capacity. To buy a sturdy dryer, pay attention to the build quality. A model with high-end build quality lasts the longest on average.
