Tumble Dryer - Tip About Condenser Dryer, Extractor Dryer

The tumble dryer has become standard in Swedish homes for the past decades. It has come to extinguish the previously used wardrobes. The dryer is efficient and quick to dry garments, and they will get a lot more fluffier and softer in the material than when the laundry drips or hangs in a drying cabinet. But if the tumble dryer draws a lot of energy and is also worn, the dryer can be more discomfort than good. Fortunately, there are modern tumblers that are both quiet and energy efficient.

Exhaust air dryer or condensate dryer

There are two types of tumble dryers on the market - exhaust air dryer and condensate dryer. An exhaust air dryer is a dryer to be connected to an exhaust air outlet. The hot and humid air dryer is led through a hose and then out through the house. It requires a certain installation, and the laundry room is such that this can be done. The most common option is to choose a condenser instead. They are all the easier to install. They are placed in a wave, and should only be connected to the nearest power outlet. Then it's clear and the laundry can be tumble. In a condensate dryer collect the moisture condensed from the clothes being dried in a container which is then emptied into the appropriate place. In some cases, it is also possible to connect the condenser directly to the drain.

Important parameters

The noise level and energy rating are almost the most important when it comes to tumble dryers. A quiet and energy efficient dryer is of course preferable. As we like to wash and dry at night, the noise can cause disturbances in everyday life. A normal tumbler has a noise level of about 60 - 65 dB. Higher than that, is not appropriate if the tumble dryer is placed in a bathroom or laundry room adjacent to the house. The size is often also decisive. The normal size of a poppy is a width and a depth of 60 cm each, and a height of 85 cm. There are smaller models for the small-scale laundry rooms for machines. In some cases it is also possible to set the dryer on the washing machine, but it requires that the washing machine is firmly anchored and does not vibrate so much during centrifugation. There may be a shelf separating the two machines.


On the more advanced tumble driers there are a variety of features that may feel more or less necessary. A nice finesse is a controllable drying temperature, and a sensor that feels how dry the laundry is. Such a tumble dryer stops by itself when the laundry is dry enough, and therefore does not draw more energy than necessary. Often, a digital display is not necessary on a tumble dryer, but it can still be convenient to have one, especially from a convenience point of view. There are often markers for when it is time to empty the tumbler on water and or lint, as well as information about how long it remains on the program selected. Another nice detail is the machines that change turns on the rotation periodically. It provides a faster and smoother drying result. A wrinkle protection also facilitates the aftertaste with the laundry.

Choosing tumble dryer

Often, the wallet controls the choice of tumble dryer. With a thick wallet it's easy to find a good tumbler who has the most in terms of features. But even those who do not have so much money to spend can find a good machine for some money. The recommendation is to skip the features that come with some porpoises. It is possible to find high-quality, but simpler models, which do not cost as much money as lasting as the more advanced models.
