How can we help you?

My heat pump dryer takes a long time to dry clothing.

Your heat pump tumble dryer uses hot air to absorb moisture from your clothes to get them dry after a wash. After this air passes through the drum, it goes through the evaporator which removes the moisture. This is collected as condensation and stored in a tank. The remaining air is re-heated and sent back to the drum to start the cycle again and continue drying your clothes. Heat pump technology helps conserve energy and has been used in Switzerland and Germany for about 13 years. While conventional tumble dryers release the hot air used to dry to clothes, heat pump technology conserves and reuses it. It will take longer to dry clothing, this is due to the maximum temperature being reached is 50°C, in comparison to the full heat of a condenser dryer which is 70-75°C.
