As Karen Carpenter sings: “Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down”, we know how rainy days can be difficult for drying clothes. Thankfully, you can do that with a tumble dryer! Of course, if you’re new, you might wonder, which type of tumble dryer should you buy.
Condenser or vented?
The main difference between a vented and a condenser dryer is how they remove water from the dryer. Vented dryers have a long and flexible hose connected to it, which then expels water, normally to the outside of the house. Meanwhile, a condenser dryer extracts moisture from wet clothes and collect it in an internal container. When the container is full, it will need to be emptied.
You may want to choose the vented dryer if you:-
Are placing the dryer near an outlet or outside of your house
Don’t want to empty a container full of water
On the other hand, choosing a condenser dryer lets you place your dryer anywhere in your home since there is no hose.
No matter if you choose vented or condenser, both types of tumble dryers will still get the job done - dry clothes. Here is a guide on the best tumble dryers to suit you best.
