Bought one of these for same price at Fenwicks Newcastle 3 months ago. Great, but theres a bit of a learning curve with it. Don't be put off if mat first the clothes still seem a little less than dry. Instructions help, but it's feeling your way and finding out what settings work for YOU

I Posted this one week ago [url=http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/siemens-wt46w381gb-heat-pump-tumble-dryer-with-a-energy-rating-7kg-capacity-white-2599653]. Price has dropped £50, so an even better deal. had tumble dryer for a week and is a learning curve for settings. HUGHES3 code may not work but also 5.5% Quidco. Awaiting 5 year warranty from Siemens website. On Currys only cheaper one is a Beko £369 so is great price for a good brand.

are these as good as condenser ones? I know they are energy efficient but I think someone told me they don't dry cloths very good and take a lot longer making it not that better on energy

As an example this uses 212kwh/yr . Hoover condenser dryer B rated which was posted last week uses 612kwh/yr. So this dryer uses 1/3 of energy. Has different settings such as cupboard dry and cupboard dry extra and depends if you put in mixed loads may affect dryness. Gentler heat than condenser ones may take a little longer but the energy savings are good.

Does it come with a 5yr warranty or is that additional? Thanks.

They take longer because the heat pump does not generate as high temperatures, but despite the longer time taken the energy consumption is much lower. What I mean is energy per load is less even if the load takes longer.
It's not the machine to buy if you need fast dry times, it's more for gentle, energy-efficient drying.

so, they are twice the price, take twice as long but save about 50% of the energy?

anybody got info on how much the average 8kg dry would take in a B rated machine and a heat pump machine?

I'm thinking the pay back would be about 2 years for these, and the risk of it breaking with a one year warranty for such an expensive appliance is not making these as attractive, which is a shame.

212kwh x 16p = £33.92
612kwh x 16p per kWh = £97.92 (if spotted some round the 500kwh Mark so more of a saving)
difference of £64 per annum.

£200 price difference to B rated condenser (thy will be twice as fast, more inefficient though)

£200/£64 = 3.1 years (or longer if you get a more efficient condenser) before you start benefiting from the payback.

these don't stack up at this price point unless my maths is incorrect

This comes with a 5 year warranty included, as received by written confirmation today.Apply via Siemens website. So therefore over the 5 years of free warranty you will save £320 from the last post's calculations over a B rated condenser dryer. "It's not the machine to buy if you need fast dry times, it's more for gentle, energy-efficient drying." Very true.

Thank you so much!

more maths ...

if you add the Siemens price of ,£399 and add the running costs over five years (£33.92 x 5) the total is 568.60.

looking at the Beko condenser DCU8230W
it has a 561kWh B rating
£229 from John Lewis with 2 yr warranty.
run cost 561x0.16=89.76 per year, times 5 = 448.8. 229+448.4 = 677.80 total cost, less the Siemens total gives a difference of £109.20 over five years or, 21.84 per annum saving.

I went for the Beko as 20 quid a year is worth the Lower investment cost and having something dry twice as quick.

The payback maths only work if you do the standard number of cycles used to determine the annual consumption , 160 mixed full and partial loads.

you also have to compare similar load machines comparing a 7kg with a 8kg does not give sensible results. bigger loads use more energy.

Heap pump do not take twice the time, but how long it takes is not that important if you are organized.
the 2 machines in above post the standard cycle comparison is 7kg/1.65kwh/178m 8kg/4.49kwh/129m

Most heat pump machines are often far more efficient at condensing so put less less moisture into the room.this Siemens one is 86%, good heat pump machines are over 90%.
