Good price! Can be slow to do a cycle (around 4 hours) but heat pump dryers are not as power hungry as a condenser or vented dryer.

I agree, that's a long time to dry a load of clothes? We are in 2016 still right???.

Yes we are in 2016, when we are more aware than ever of the effects of global warming, so people are becoming more aware than ever that there are consequences to ultimate convenience.

I had no idea until i saw this deal that a heat pump tumble dryer even existed! I had visions of having to sink a bore hole or running a pipe to a stream for this to work.
Found this if anyone else is in the same boat.

mmh, seems to strip the embed code. Here's the link beko.co.uk/lif…ump

oh, have some heat!;)

I have had an AEG one of these for 3 years. Incredible and very cheap to run. Never had it taken more than 2 hours to do a load. Even 8 bath towels.

I think if you compare the energy usage between this and a similar Bosch condenser, if you used both an average of 160 cycles per year,

A condenser drier has a cycle of about 100 minutes, with a 504 KhW, This Bosch Heat Pump is 270KhW but drying the same amount of 160 loads per year would take and additional 124 minutes, it works out to be far less economical..

So I fail to see the benefits of a heat pump, and thus this deal is like the heat pump, cold!

That lin compares a C rated drier, yet most tumble driers now are B rated. bit of a con, even goes as far as to say hanging your clothes on the line is a health risk! LOL.

The purpose of the link was to show how a heat pump tumble dryer works. I'm sure beko would welcome your feedback on their article!

Well I don't care and run my condensor tumble dryer everyday. I would not waste money on this if it takes 4 hours to dry.

I think you may be confusing power (kW) and energy (kWh). There is no such thing as a "KhW". The energy figures are independent of time.

My 8kg John Lewis branded Aeg manufactured drier takes a max of 2 hours to dry a full load, often a fair bit less. Economical to run, just that AEG/Electrolux service are the problem if they go wrong, it took 10 weeks to get fixed!

4 hours cycle time is ridiculous though!

That article makes very good points, although the price they state for a heat pump dryer is much higher than this.

Its full of assumptions, not facts. If they had so much as tried one they might have a point, clearly it is written without any experience at all.

Wild estimations such as quoting typical cost of £800 are simply not borne out by fact.

The 4 hrs being banded around is not quite accurate and varies on the load/programme
This was taken from the spec of the dryer
Weighted programme time of the standard cotton programme at full and partial load: 170 min.
Programme time of the standard cotton programme at full load 224 min and programme time of the standard cotton programme at partial load 130 min

4 hours is pretty long what you gonna do with the next load of washing when the other is still drying?

Time is money friend and this takes too long....

Ordered yesterday, delivered this morning. Just put its 1st load in on Cotton - Mixed Load and it took an hour and 15 mins to dry. It took about the same time as the C rated condenser tumble dryer it has just replaced. To be fair to AO.com, they text me this morning giving a time slot and then a call from the driver 15 mins before they arrived. This was then followed up by a telephone call from AO.com to make sure I was happy with the process. For less than £300 for a Heat Pump Tumble Dryer made by Bosch (Poland) I am very happy, show me a cheaper equivalent as I couldnt find anything, this also comes with a 2 year warranty if you register.
Plus John Lewis still sell it for £489 johnlewis.com/bos…871

I for one would either put this on overnight or in the morning before I went to work. But, as said above it only took an 1hr 15mins. This was not a full 8kg load though, but at least 3/4 full.

No I'm still not understanding you - if you are quoting annual consumption figures then the time it takes is irrelevant.

Thanks

Thos annual consumption figures are based on the load setting, load weight and average annual uses.. if you cannot follow then ask you mum to help you. (_;)

I've had one for nearly a year, has never taken 4 hours to dry a load, keeps up happily with my large capacity washer. An advantage is it doesn't get as hot as a traditional dryer so I can even dry sports synthetics on a mixed load setting without wrecking them. Usually takes just over an hour to cupboard dry, mixed load setting with full load.

Heat pumps are supposed to only add 5 minutes per kg over a modern condenser dryer.

Sure - right after she's explained kilowatt-hours to you.

Ordered for Thursday delivery, thanks.8)
Had to cancel due to replacing a White Knight in the garage, and a cold garage at that. oO
Never mind still gave it heat though.
