Heat pump tumble dryers have a condenser that separates water from the warm air that passes over the wet clothes and puts it in a water tank. The remaining dry warm air is then pumped back through the drum, re-using it to help the clothes dry faster.
This makes them by far the most energy-efficient of all the tumble dryer types available.
How Miele Heat Pump Tumble dryers work
Although this could go a long way to save money on your bills over time, you may have to pay much more up front than if you were to buy another type of tumble dryer. Heat pump tumble dryers are generally much more expensive to buy than their vented and condenser counterparts.
Pros: Energy costs can be half or even less compared with other dryer types. No vent or hose is needed to remove damp air.
Cons: They can be expensive to buy, although prices are coming down. They can often take longer to dry clothes than other dryer types, though this is not the case with the best ones. Like condenser tumble dryers, the water tank will need emptying from time to time unless you plumb it in.
Yes, a great technology, I would so love to convert my house to use this technology for heating/cooling etc. (maybe when I retire it can be a project)
