Defy’s intelligent range of Tumble Dryers use highly-efficient drying technologies and energy conscious programmes to give you the best possible drying experience.

While tumble dryers may not be an essential, they’re a serious box of magic when you need fast, warm laundry as soon as possible. Plus, they save you a lot space instead of trying to hang different pieces of clothing around the house.

If you’re looking to purchase a new tumble dryer, the following three points are key when considering which one is best suited for your home. Take a read and you’ll have the fluffiest towels, the softest bedding and one of the lowest electricity bills in no time at all.

  1. Energy saving technology.

Heat pump tumble dryers use a lot less energy than the vented types and they could save you a lot of money in electricity bills. While vented and other condenser dryers release the hot air used to dry clothes, Defy’s Heat Pump Technology combines the technology of an air conditioner and a condenser dryer which then creates an efficient system that dries laundry by condensing water out of garments while using minimum amounts of energy. 

2. Hygiene.

A batch of comfy warm clothes is the goal but having an effective hygiene feature just takes better living to the next level. Defy’s BabyProtect+ Technology runs a hour-long cycle at a high temperature to ensure maximum hygiene results for your baby’s clothes. The programme also provides a deep sterilisation and kills any dust mites and bacteria that may be attached to your clothes.

3. Large, medium or small?

A tumble dryers’ capacity usually ranges from about 3kg to 9kg. Determining what size you need is not as difficult as it may seem. “The bigger, the better” is not always the case either. Keep in mind that the fuller the tumble dryer, the more cost efficient and energy efficient it will be, so make sure you don’t buy one that is too big. Defy offers a variety of sizes in dryers therefore making your choice a little easier.

Once you’ve found the perfect dryer for your home, you can always use a couple tips on how to properly use and maintain it.

Here’s our top 3:

1. Maintenance.

If you don’t maintain your tumble dryer properly it can use up a lot more energy than necessary. It is important to remove lint from the filter after you’ve finished a load. If the lint filter is not clean it can stop hot air from passing through easily which in turn decreases the efficiency of the machine.

2. Prevent tangled clothes.

If your clothes are tangled after being washed they will take longer to dry. When drying laundry, you can tie the ends of your duvet cover to prevent smaller pieces of clothing from being stuck inside. Clothes that are inside the duvet will take a lot longer to dry and this could contribute to energy wastage. Another tip is to untangle your clothes before you load the tumble dryer. Loose clothes dry faster than clothes that have become tangled together. The more room they have the quicker they will dry.

3. Don’t dry for too long.

Make sure that you set your dryer to a short drying cycle. Once the cycle has stopped you can check if your clothes are dry enough and decide if they need to go for longer. If you leave them for too long you end up wasting electricity and it could possibly lead to a fire hazard.

Happy drying everyone! We hope this helped.
