[UK filter] Tumble dryer purchasing advice sought!
posted by wigsnatcher to home & garden (8 answers total)
We're looking to buy our first stand-alone tumble dryer. Our research indicates it should probably be a condenser dryer as we live in a rented house and a vented dryer is not terribly feasible. We have 150 pounds in John Lewis vouchers so our preference would be to buy from there if possible. Beyond that we are totally ignorant!
I had a look on this thread
which is very useful but US-centric. Can anyone elaborate on the most important qualities in a dryer? For example, would spending 100 pounds more on a B-level energy efficiency dryer versus a C-rated dryer be worth it? Are condenser dryers more vulnerable to problems than vented dryers? Any other tips would be appreciated!
