How does a condenser dryer work

Condensation drain hose dryer

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 a condensation drain hose isn't included, buy a hose separately.

What is a good condenser dryer

Drum dryer

If you're looking for a condenser dryer, pay attention to the build quality of the condenser dryer. If a dryer has a 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.
