What is a condenser dryer?

A condenser dryer collects the moisture in a condensation tank when it's drying. Most condenser dryers also connect to the water drain. The liquid will flow away via a hose. Keep in mind that a condenser dryer isn't energy-efficient, as it has energy label B.

How a condenser dryer works

A condenser dryer works with a heating element that gets hot. Because of the high temperature, your laundry dries quickly. This also means that the dryer uses a lot of energy and your clothes can shrink or wear faster. The moisture from your laundry flows to a condensation tray you have to empty regularly. Do you have a water drain and do you want to flush the moisture automatically? Choose a condenser dryer you can connect to the drain. If condensation drain hose isn't included, buy a hose separately.

If you're looking for a condenser dryer, pay attention to the build quality. If a condenser dryer mid-range build quality, it generally lasts longer than a basic model. Make sure the dryer has a stainless steel drum, so that the drum doesn't rust. If it has a humidity sensor, the dryer stops automatically when your clothes are dry enough.
