How much energy does a dryer use?
|Annual energy consumption||Annual energy costs||Savings compared to energy label B after 5 years|
|A+++||176kWh||€ 40.48||€ 371.45|
|A++||211kWh||€ 48.53||€ 331.20|

The right side of the energy label tells you how much energy the dryer uses. We define the energy use in kWh per year. Do you want a dryer with a low energy use? Opt for an A+++ model. This will save you a yearly average amount of € 75 in comparison to a dryer with energy label B. We base this on a 7kg load capacity.
Calculate energy costs
The energy costs per kWh are € 0.23. Do you want to calculate what your average annual energy costs are? Multiply the energy consumption in kWh with € 0.23.
For example: 499kWh x € 0.23 = € 114.77. This is what your annual energy costs are with a dryer with energy label B. The energy label bases this on 160 drying cycle per year.
