Heat pump tumble dryers 

Heat pump dryers are the most eco-friendly type of dryer as it uses special technology to dry the clothes. Which is not only better for the environment but your wallet too, The technology circulates hot air in the drum to withdraw moisture from the clothes which then evaporates into a tank, fairly similar to a condenser dryer in terms of look and operation but a much friendlier option. According to some experts  you can save up to 50% annually on energy bills by choosing a heat pump dryer over a condenser or vented

Vented tumble dryers

Usually the most affordable of the types of dryer, if you’re searching price low to high you’re almost guaranteed to see a vented dryer first, it works by removing warm air through a window hose or an external vent says. Usually a vent is either a small hole in the wall or out of the spare room window, you can purchase dryer converter kits for about £20 which effectively capture the moisture instead and you emptier it out afterwards, although I’d recommend just purchasing a condenser or heat pump dryer instead if you’re not keen on opening the window, some vented dryers and some come with a venting kit, need to be installed by a professional.

Condenser tumble dryers

Typically usually the most popular and middle range in terms of affordability, the benefits are there’s no hose attached so no need to open the window or use a vent hole as well as the freedom of being able to put the machine in almost any room of the house although they are slightly heavier than vented dryers and we’d always recommend a well ventilated room. Condenser dryers capture the water you use in a tank which either located at the top or bottom of the machine and usually holds 5 litres, although please don’t wait for it to fill up before emptying, we’d recommend after every use.


There are many other features to look out for when looking at what dryer to purchase other than just the type of dryer :

  • Programming: The best tumble dryers have a few heat settings, for example for cottons, synthetics or delicates, helping you keep your clothes in top condition for longer. 

  • Drum size: similar to a washing machine they come in all size of drum, Larger drum sizes are more energy efficient because they’ll dry more clothes in less time. Most dryers  from 7kg to 9kg. 

  • Child locks: To prevent the kids from messing around with the machine. – recommended!. 

  • LED lighting : a really handy tool on a lot of modern machine as it helps indicate when your machine needs emptying or cleaning as well as giving you information on the current cycle .

  • Energy efficiency: These days, machines are given ratings from A to G, with A+++ the most efficient. Newer appliances tend to be better, but it depends on how long a cycle takes and how often you use your machine as well. 

  • Integrated dryer vs freestanding dryer. Integrated tumble dryers can fit within your cupboards and be hidden. Freestanding ones are not built-in, which means they’ll be in sight but can usually be put almost anywhere in the house and tend to have greater capacity . 

With all this in mind, here are some of the best tumble dryers on the market right now to suit all budgets.
