2. Which is better: vented or condenser tumble dryer?
The main difference between the two is the way in which moisture saturated air is extracted from the dryer. A vented dryer removes the moisture from the vent fitted through an external wall. Vented dryers are usually placed near the window to allow the moisture to escape outside. Vented dryers do not have to convert the moisture saturated hot air. They simply expel it through the vent or the hose in the wall.
On the other hand, in condenser dryers, the hot air is condensed into the water which is then collected and stored in the container underneath. This gives a lot more freedom to install condenser dryers anywhere in the house.
In both cases, dryers work efficiently, so depending on the cost and space in your house, you can decide which dryer better suits your requirement.
3. Do dryers need to be vented outside?
If you have a vented tumble dryer, it expels warm and damp air produced by the drying procedure via a hose. For this reason, you will need to install it near a window, door, or have a vent fitted through an external wall to allow the condensation to be released. Thanks to the external vent, there is no need to worry about emptying water from the machine.
4. How can I tell if my vented tumble dryer is clogged?
A vented dryer will need to be installed near an external vent. The hot, damp air produced in the appliance is removed through this vent.
The vent should be clear of blockages for safety and for good drying performance. The following signs may mean that the dryer vent is clogged:
- see if the drying time has increased
- see if the appliance or clothes are hotter than usual
- Check for steam inside the dryer
- check for water leaks
- check the lint filter for lint and fibre
