WHIRLPOOL HEAT PUMP DRYER
Did you know that Energy Star appliances have been around for a couple of decades, yet until recently, there has never been an Energy Star category for dryers. It's a big surprise to many people, because dryers are one of the big energy users in household appliances. A major reason for no Energy Star rating for dryers is the lack of differentiation in energy usage on most full-sized dryers.
However, it's a new day for dryers. Condensate dryers from Europe have become popular, AND there are now new “heat pump” dryers available that use a system similar to heat pump air conditioners that saves up to 50% of the energy used in traditional dryers; about $150 a year on average.
In addition, and this is a BIG DEAL, these new dryers are ventless. You can locate the laundry nearly anywhere. No need to run a vent through the walls, and no risk of fire. Clogged dryer vents are considered the number one cause of house fires.
Whirlpool received a Parade of Products award from the PCBC for its Whirlpool® HybridCare™ Heat Pump Dryer. Of course, you can learn more about this product from your Arizona Wholesale Supply account manager.
