Does a dryer consume a lot of electricity when it is used?
You need to always dry your clothes at maximum load. Avoid drying 1 or 2 pieces of clothing in the dryer as this will waste the electricity. We also have a dryer that have 50% energy saving. This model is call a Heat Pump Dryer which heat air in a closed circuit system, passes it over clothes and recycles the hot air to be used in drying the laundry.
How long does a dryer dry a full load of clothing after washing?
How fast your clothes dry will depend on the spin speed of the washing machine, the faster speed it spins the faster the clothes will dry in the dryer as there is less moisture remaining in the clothing after the final spin.
What is the difference between a dryer with a Mechanical timer and a dryer with Sensor dry feature?
A mechanical timer dryer works by manually setting a drying time (maximum time which can be selected is 150 minutes). You may choose to set 60 minutes i.e. your estimated drying time, so when the timer reaches 0 minutes the dryer stops. You will then open the dryer door and check on the clothing dryness. For those clothes that are not fully dried, you will have to manually set the estimated drying time again.
A Sensor dryer will have 3 drying features for you to choose to dry your different types of Clothing. They are the following:
1. Extra Dry: Drying thick materials e.g. Jeans, bath towels etc.
2. Normal Dry: Drying normal materials e.g. T-shirts, under garments etc.
3. Iron Dry: Those materials that you need to iron e.g. shirts.
(Clothing at the end of this program will not be 100% dry but still contain moisture, so that when you iron it will be much easier).
All you need to do is to choose among the above Drying programs according to the fabric thickness. Once the selected program sensor has sensed the clothing in the drum are dried it will automatically stop. Therefore there are no guessing setting drying times like the mechanical time dryer.
What is the difference between a “Venting dryer” and a “Condenser dryer”?
The difference between a “Venting dryer”and a “Condenser dryer” is that in a venting dryer you need to install a ducting hose to vent out the hot and damp air from the dryer if the dryer is placed in a enclosed room e.g. kitchen, storeroom. The opposite scenario will apply to a condenser dryer if it is placed in a enclosed room.
How does the Condenser dryer work if we do not have to install a ducting hose?
In the Condenser dryer, the hot and damp air will pass through and being cooled down by a Heat Exchanger. This process will convert the moisture in the air to become water droplets which will then be stored in the top water drawer and the hot air will also be cool down and exhaust out as warm dry air.
