Tumble Dryer Repair Edmonton
Tumble dryers are the standard and most common dryer that are purchased by consumers. They are less complicated and easier to maintain than other types of dryers on the market. These types of dryers are the most prevalent on the market and most people own these unless they have a restriction on having an air vent that leads outdoors. Tumble dryers operate by pulling nearby cool, dry air in and begin heating it. The heated air is then pushed inside the drum to your clothes and then, using a vent, pushed outside of your home. The drum turns your clothes inside so that the level of moisture stays consistent between all your items. This type of drying process can cause clothing to shrink depending on the type of material or be torn if they are in too large of a load.
This type of dryer operates much like the conventional tumble dryer with just a few small differences. Instead of exhausting the air outside of the home, a heat exchanger is used to cool the air and to condense the water vapour into a collection tank or a drainpipe. Since this process uses air that is contained within the appliance, it can take much longer to dry clothes and textiles. This type of dryer is only favoured when having ducting to the outside is not easy to accommodate. This dryer also releases a small amount of moisture into the room it is contained in.
Heat Pump Dryer
A heat pump dryer consists of a closed loop system and are even more rare than the condenser dryer. They work in a similar manner, although a heat pump is required for this dryer to work. The heat pump is used in place of the heat exchanger to cool the air down. A heat pump has the hot humid air passed through it where the cool side condenses the water vapour and the hot side reheats this air afterwards to be reused. This system allows the dryer to run without using ducts and is more efficient than both the condenser dryer and traditional tumble dryers.
These dryers consist of being both a washer and dryer, contained in the same appliance. The only difference in this combination is that the heat exchanger that is used, uses water for cooling which means water is used for both washing and drying. These are great for spaces without enough room for two appliances. Their drying cycles take longer than other drying appliances.
