Just the other day, I was having a discussion with Betty (27) at the Laundry Room located in the basement of our plaza and I was simply amazed how she took her cloth drying business so seriously. We came to an agreement by realizing that clothes depict our personalities. We want them to be clean and well protected while washing and a good dryer plays a major role in taking good care of our clothes. It prevents from shrinkage and ultimately avoids it from getting rough.
As soon as the discussion concluded, I rushed back to my home place and turned on my laptop. I made myself a warm cup of coffee and sat on my research table. While skimming through a number of product review websites, I realized that all what we talked at the laundry room turns out to be pretty much true. Choosing the right pick for your cloth washing and drying plays a significant role for all your wearable. It involves a number of factors such as features, pricing, pros and cons.
Therefore, to save you all from going through the hassle of performing an extensive research, I have studied and found out some of the most efficient brands on the market. Here is a list of some of the best heat pump, vented or condenser dryers arranged in chronological order. Make the pick which fits best to your needs. For recommended heat pump dryers only view this buying guide.
Best Tumble Dryers [Best heat pump, vented or condenser dryers]
1. The Panda Small Mini Compact Tumble Dryer 1.5 cu.ft. 110V (White and Black)
The Panda Small Compact Tumble Dryer is a secondary level drying machine for your clothes. It is a convenient and easy to use laundry dryer which you can easily adjust anywhere within a room.
With the Panda Tumble Dryer, you get an enjoyable cloth drying experience. It contains a single timer setting unit which allows you to set a single timer depending on the load you fill in.
Once, you have successfully dried the clothes up, all you will ever get in return is a warm and soft scented solution in return.
1) Will the vent/duct system work if my dryer is wall mounted?
With each Panda product, there is a wall mount kit pre-included with the complete package. The kit contains a number of items which may include wall hanging brackets, wall hanging hooks, exhaust connector and screws to fit the bracket in. Also, the kit includes an exhaust pipe but in case of a vent/duct system dryer, the need of an exhaust is unnecessary. If you wish to control the airflow out of the rooms the dryer is placed in, then an exhaust pipe can sure come in handy. In case, you want to attach the exhaust pipe fitting to your respective machine then, the fitting is approximately 8 inch in length and can easily be connected using an exhaust connector port given at the back of the machine.
2) How fast does the Panda Tumble Dryer can dry my clothes?
It can dry your clothes faster than any other tumble dryer on the market. But, to be more precise, it depends on the fabric, the type of cloth you are drying and the size of the garment. If we are talking about blue denim jeans here, it just might take around 20-40 minutes max on high settings. As far as the customer experiences are concerned, it is observed that irrespective of the type of cloth you are opting to dry within your Panda Tumble Dryer, it will not take anything more than 40 minutes. Whether you are drying Jeans, towels, bed sheets, woolen sweaters or any other fabric… 40 Minutes up top! And your cloth warm and fuzzy as it was never even wet.
3) Is this Tumble Dryer Easy to Use? Or Not?
It is, by far, one of the easiest Tumble dryer on the market. It is actually just a plug and play solution. The functions are quite catchy and once you get the hang of it, it will hardly take just a minute or two to set the preferences of drying your clothes as per your requirement.
2. LG WM3997HWA 4.3 Cu. ft. Ventless Steam Washer/Tumble Dryer Combination with TurboWash
While most washing/drying units takes time to completely wash and dry your clothes, The LG WM3997HWA takes only a 20 minutes cycle to completely clean your clothes.
It involves TurboWash Technology which enables the machine to clean larger loads within no time. Using steam, the machine dries up your cloth and displaces all dirt particles from fabric.
Prolonged steam drying also helps in making the fabric wrinkle free. It is an anti-vibrational unit which reduces noise and vibration to a considerable extent.
