How do heat pump dryers work

What is a heat pump dryer - a brief explanation

Are there different dryers?

There are also different types of dryers. A heat pump dryer is the further development of a condenser dryer. In the case of a condenser dryer, the air must be constantly heated, as the warm air is blown out together with the moisture. The heat pump dryer, on the other hand, uses a heat exchanger.

How does a heat pump dryer work?
A heat pump dryer has a heat exchanger that allows it to heat the sucked in air with the discharged air and, conversely, to cool it. The advantages are obvious.
  • A heat pump dryer works with less high temperatures than a condenser dryer (Link: https://vergleich.computerbild.de/kondenstehler-test/). It needs just 45-60 ° C, while a condenser dryer dries at 100-125 ° C.
  • Due to this lower heat and the lower energy loss, the heat pump dryer also uses far less electricity. You pay around 50 cents per load of laundry for electricity, while with other dryers you pay over one euro.
  • The only disadvantage is the purchase price, which is on average 150 euros higher than that of another dryer. However, the heat pump dryer has already paid for itself after 300 laundry loads. On average, and depending on the size of the family, a dryer runs two to three times a week. The heat pump dryer pays for itself after just one year.
  • Most heat pump dryers have their own tank and cannot be equipped with an additional drain hose for the water. The tank can easily be emptied. The devices also have a cleaning mechanism so that you no longer have to clean the condensation filter.
