Vented vs. condenser tumble dryers

Vented vs. condenser tumble dryers

When choosing laundry equipment for your business or for on-site laundry facilities, there are a huge number of different options to choose from.

One of the decisions you will need to make is between vented and condenser tumble dryers. To help you choose which type of tumbler dryer is right for your needs, lets look at how each of these types work and what benefits they offer.

Vented tumble dryers

Vented tumble dryers are fitted with a flexible hose that, once connected to an exhaust duct leading to the exterior of the building, effectively removes hot and damp air and vents it into the open air. These dryers often come with a venting kit, but may require a little more setup and extra equipment than other types of dryer.

Condenser tumble dryers

The difference between vented and condenser tumble dryers is that the latter condenses the steam created during the drying process into water. This water is collected in a tank, rather than the steam having to be vented outside. You will have to empty the water tank frequently, but you will be able to install these dryers anywhere as they don’t need any external venting.
