Details to be Aware of When Choosing a Clothes Dryer

Clothes dryer is a clean household electric appliance that uses electric heating to make the moisture in washed clothes evaporate instantly and dry up. It is very popular in humid and rainy seasons.

Types of Household Clothes Dryers

Types of household dryers include straight row, water condensation, air condensation, and heat pump air condensation (also known as heat pump) types.

Straight row

Straight row dryers, also known as ventilated dryers, are usually installed on walls or by windows. They vent out moisture through an exhaust pipe, which should be connected to a vent to ensure indoor air circulation. These dryers are usually cheaper, but they require energy and space. During the drying process, instability in temperature and humidity may occur due to the need for moisture exhaust through the exhaust pipe.


Compared with traditional hot air drying technology, condensation dryers are more energy-saving and environmentally friendly. These dryers use condensation technology to condense moisture into water through a condenser before discharging it. This not only reduces energy consumption but also minimizes environmental pollution. The advantages of condensation dryers include good drying effect, short drying time, easy operation, no need for exhaust pipes, and the ability to be placed anywhere in the house.

Heat pump

Heat pump dryers are one of the most energy-efficient dryers in the market today. These dryers use advanced technology for air moisture collection and compressor-powered compression into high-temperature and high-pressure gas. Then, the gas is released to make the drying air more energy-sufficient, which is more energy-saving and environmentally friendly, greatly reducing energy consumption and emissions. Additionally, heat pump dryers also prevent clothes from fading and shrinking, allowing clothes to maintain their original color and size. When selecting a dryer, it is worth considering a heat pump dryer. Although the price is relatively high, it is still of good value.

Before putting clothes in the dryer, they should be spun-dry first to minimize water content and shorten drying time, thus saving electricity. After each drying cycle, the filter should be removed and cleaned of lint and thread with a soft brush to avoid damage. If it is difficult to clean, it can also be lightly rinsed with water and then reinstalled in the dryer. After each drying cycle, the water in the water tank should be emptied, and the door of the drum should be opened to eliminate the moisture inside the dryer to keep it dry and prevent bacteria growth.

Four Guidelines for Purchasing a Clothes Dryer

1. Localized Selection

Normally, dryers are placed side-by-side with washing machines or stacked above washing machines for convenience. When stacking, suitable connecting accessories must be provided, and dryers that are compatible with existing washing machines should be selected.

Personal Needs

Pay attention to the rated drying capacity of the dryer and check whether the drying program design options meet the drying requirements. The more functions a dryer has, the higher their price usually is. For families with elderly or children, attention should be paid to whether the dryer has functions like sterilization and mite removal. If clothing like silk, down, or wool needs to be dried frequently, it is worth considering whether the dryer has a separate wrinkle-removing function, instead of an attached anti-wrinkle and similar functions.

Details Matter

The drum of the dryer should preferably be made of stainless steel material and undergo special processing to avoid rust and reduce wear on clothing. It's essential to check whether the dryer has a filter, which can effectively stop and collect lint and thread generated by tumbling and friction. Dryers that have humidity and temperature sensors can better protect clothes from overdrying and save energy. If you want a more energy-efficient dryer, consider choosing a dryer with heat pump technology, which is highly efficient and can reduce your energy consumption significantly.


Check whether the dryer product is indicative of the testing reports and data related to its performance and only purchase products produced by regular manufacturers. Choosing a well-known brand can offer better quality guarantee and after-sales service. You can find information and user evaluations about the quality and performance of different brands of dryers on the internet. Additionally, well-known brand dryers offer more additionalservices such as extending the warranty period or providing maintenance services. If you don't have special requirements for brands, you can choose some brands with better price/performance ratio.

The Midea Group has made many breakthroughs and efforts in heat pump washing machines. In addition to launching several high-performance heat pump washing machines under the Little Swan brand, Midea Group continues to innovate and introduce new products, such as the Midea heat pump washing machine, which uses dual-vortex rotor compression technology to significantly improve washing efficiency and reduce noise and vibration during washing with its intelligent AI washing technology.

In summary, when purchasing a dryer, you need to consider and balance all the factors mentioned above to choose the dryer that best suits your needs. By discovering necessities and exploring the market for dryer selections, you can buy more cost-effective, fully-featured, and energy-saving products with better quality at a more reasonable price and make your life more convenient and comfortable.
