I really need a Condenser Tumble Dryer, it has to be around 7kg or 6kg capacity.

looking to pay up to £200 but the cheaper the better.

Are you really sure you want a condenser?, they are quite inferior to standard ones.
They take longer and use way more power

I've never had a Tumble Dryer before:oops: so i don't really know the difference between them apart from one has a big hose thing that you have to put out the window or something and the condenser doesn't need that for the steam as it turns it in to water, so i thought that one would be better.

Do you think i will be better off getting the other type as i would save money as it uses less power an a condenser one?

Thanks!

TBH we have a condenser now and it costs a fortune to run and takes ages to dry even a few clothes in comparison to my previous standard one.
As soon as it breaks down we shall replace it with a standard one as we now have room for a permanent vent

Thanks for the info, i think i will go for the vented one as i've got room at the back door for the hose.

Is there much of a running cost difference between a energy Efficiency Grade: C and Grade A, i'm just asking as most of the ones i see are energy Efficiency Grade: C, just wondering before i buy.

Thanks again for all your help.

I would agree fully, that vented tumble dryers are better, having used both. If you haven't aready gone out and bought one you might consider one with 'sensor drying'. I can recommend them.
You just put your clothes in, turn to sensor and leave. The machine will stop itself when they are dry. No need to guess how long to put the dryer on for!! either too long and waste electric or not enough time and they are still damp and the dryer then needs to heat again. You can use timer if you wish, but I rarely do.

Really worth considering.

Thanks for your reply :thumbsup:, sounds like a vented tumble dryer is the best one to get and i really like the sound of the sensor thing as that seems a lot better than having to keep checking the clothes to see if they are dry, i haven't one yet as there is so many to choose from, can anyone recommend one?

Thanks again all
