What are ventilated dryers

Where is the best place to set up a condenser dryer?

The annoying and time-consuming hanging and hanging of laundry is not for everyone. That is why almost all households buy an electronic tumble dryer that uses heat and a spin cycle to dry the laundry at lightning speed and relatively inexpensively. This saves users from having to laboriously hang each item of laundry on the line by hand. Before getting a tumble dryer, however, there is one important question to be answered: Where is the best place to set up a condenser dryer in the house or apartment and what should be taken into account? Are there rooms that are particularly attractive? This article provides answers to these questions.

Domestic work rooms in the basement and kitchens favored installation locations

Regardless of whether you buy a heat pump dryer or a condenser dryer, you can start off with all those rooms in which the residents rarely stay. Living rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms are therefore generally unsuitable for installing a dryer. Many households opt for basement rooms or the kitchen - and for good reasons.

Adequate air circulation plays a crucial role

It is crucial that the room in which the dryer is installed is well ventilated. Fresh air supply is necessary so that the moist air that is created during the drying process can also escape from the room. Otherwise, it will build up and gradually settle in the walls, which in turn leads to the formation of mold. This happens particularly efficiently when the air can circulate. As a result, the room should ideally be filled with dry air. Occasionally you should also use a dehumidifier, provided that the basic humidity in all rooms is so high that mold formation from moist air after drying cannot be ruled out.

Immediate proximity to the washing machine makes sense

In addition, for practical reasons, the dryer is usually in the immediate vicinity of the washing machine so that you can easily move the laundry from the washing machine to the dryer. This creates a basic level of moisture in the room that should not be unnecessarily increased by body moisture. Dryers suck in ambient air in order to feed it into the machine. As a result, free air entry and exit is particularly important, which is already provided by a single cellar window. As mentioned above, it follows from this that bathrooms are rather unsuitable for installation. There is a high degree of humidity here anyway due to the shower and there is usually too little space for two larger electrical devices to fit into the room. If there is also the moisture from the electrical appliances, there is a risk of mold, as the moisture then slowly settles in the walls. In the long term, this leads to the formation of mold, which must be avoided.

Regardless of whether a condenser dryer or a heat pump dryer is purchased: To ensure that drying the laundry does not trigger mold growth, the dryer should be set up in a domestic work room that is not used for household activities. Adequate ventilation is also necessary. Ideally, a window should be left permanently in the tilted position and immediately after opening the washing machine or dryer, push ventilation should be carried out in order to transport the residual moisture directly to the outside. If this is not enough, an additional dehumidifier is recommended.
