Condenser Vs Vented Dryer: Which should I pick?

Having a dryer machine is pretty convenient especially during monsoon season. It simply dries out your clothes within 30 minutes. That's pretty amazing, right? Did you know that there is two types of dryer machine, condenser, and vented dryer? Knowing the difference between these types can help you choose the right type of dryer for your home.

What are the differences between these two types of clothes dryers?

Condenser Dryer

Condenser dryers moved the hot air to a condensing container where it is condensed into water, it is collected and stored in a container inside the machine. You do not need an external vent or hose.

Why do you need to buy a condenser dryer?

For condenser dryer, you can place it anywhere in your home. If you do not have space, or can't make a hole in an external wall, a condenser dryer is a perfect option for you.

Vented Dryer

Vented dryer removes moisture through a vent or hose. These machines are more eco-friendly and they do not convert the moisture as it is simply just expelling it from your house. They are reliable and low maintenance as we do not need to empty any water from the machine.

Why do you need to buy a vented dryer?

The key benefit of using a vented dryer is that they cost less than condenser dryers and since they vent moisture straight outside, there is no water reservoir to empty.

Energy Saving Tips!

  • Don't overload the machine.
  • Dry similar fabric together.
  • Clean the lint screen and dryer duct.
  • Spin-dry your wash-load at the highest spin speed possible before loading the dryer.
