Used to have a vented tumble dryer but there is no space for that where I live now. I do have a lot of upstairs space though so could home a condenser dryer. Just a few concerns, do they make your house very damp e.t.c have any of you got one and if so would you recommend one? Thank you.

We have a condenser washer/dryer - essentially the water vapour is excreted through the waste water pipe, so no real damp issues here. I assume a separate dryer will work in the same way...

We had ours out in the conservatory and found it did increase the damp, but how much of that was caused by it being in a conservatory instead of a warmer room?

Since we had a vented one fitted, it's been much better

Most condenser dryers collect water in a tank and this has to be emptied periodically.

Since switching to a condenser around 8 months ago from a vented dryer only difference I've noticed is that the kitchen is more humid when its in use.

I ensure window is open when its used, and I'd replace it with another condenser should it develop a fault.

I've had a condenser dryer where there's no drainage, the water is collected in a pull-out drawer canister that you have to empty every so often.

It probably adds some moisture to the air but I don't remember it being very damp. Certainly in my experience not enough for it to cause problems.

You will need to allow some ventilation otherwise over a long period of continuous use there will be some issues especially in the corners no to mention escape of tiny fibres that are not trapped by the filter

We have a Samsung condenser and it's the best purchase no damp issues, been using it a good year and half to two. Wouldn't go back

I have had numerous dryers both vented and condenser. The condenser dryers will warm up that room but will NOT cause damp.
I have a beloved sensor dry and it is by far the best one I have had and dries a 7kg load in about 50 mins. If you want me to find out the model number let me know.

I had one for years and it didn't make the house damp . I used the water it collected to water the plants . I didn't find it as effective as a vented one though .

It won't make your room damp, all of the steam/water vapour is sent through the waste pipe.

​I'm interested in this 50 min drying time. Any chance you could find out that model number? Cheers.

Our bathroom was large so a few years ago I took the wall down and moved it in about a mitre. We still has room for a bath and a walk-in shower that's how big it was. Anyway I then created a little unit on the landing to house a washing machine and a dryer on top of that. Perfect solution, more space in the kitchen and no dirty clothes down stairs. Condensing dryer works well for us.
