1 July 2019 1215 Views

Buying a new dryer isn’t the most fun type of shopping, we hear you. But it doesn’t have to be a dreaded chore if you know what you are looking for. With so many function features, energy ratings and even where the dryer will live in your home to consider, it can be overwhelming, some might say stressful. No need to worry, we’ve got you covered here at Beko! We wanted to give you some top tips to take the stress away from the decision, so we’ve provided you with the top 5 things you need to know before buying a dryer.

1. Where will you put the dryer and what size do you need?

Just like you do with a washing machine, you want to measure the space for your dryer. Where is it going to be positioned? You want to make sure it’s going to fit. At Beko, we know all homes are different and no one-size-fits-all for laundry. The easiest way is to think about how much you need to dry. If it’s one or two people with light clothes and bedding, then a smaller dryer is more likely to suit you. After all, you don’t want a big dryer using energy when you only need a small amount dried. Those with more drying needs or who are drying heavier laundry, might want to look at a larger capacity dryer. And remember to think ahead. You have a dryer for years, so if you’re a growing family, look to the future - that larger dryer might work better as the family continues to grow.

2. How much does it cost to run the dryer?

We understand. You don’t want to spend a fortune using the dryer, but you want lots of things, all at once, in one dryer. You want efficiency. You want durability. And you want peace and quiet. Well, you can have it all! Beko has cleverly created technology that serves for all your must-haves. Beko ProSmart™ Inverter Motor technology offers energy efficiency for your tumble dryer, keeping your electricity bills down. Oh, and it comes with a 10-year warranty – so you know it won’t let you down.

It keeps noise down too thanks to a variable (frictionless) motor speed that helps you to set the drum rotation to suit your clothes. The adjusted drum rotation lets the clothes move more easily and quietly in the drum, so your drying won’t disturb anyone. Thanks goodness!

3. Drying quickly or drying efficiently?

Having to choose between drying quickly or drying energy efficiently can leave you feeling stressed. Both are important to you, but why do you have to choose a dryer than only has one or the other? The good news is you can relax. Beko is here to save the day! With RapiDry™you get a hybrid type tumble dryer, giving you the option to choose between drying quickly and drying energy efficiently. RapiDry™merges conventional heater and heat pump technology.

So, for those days you are in a rush and need your laundry dry quick smart, like when you realise your favourite jumper isn’t going to dry in time for your lunch date with friends, you can pop it in the dryer and get it dry quick smart – then next time, you can go back to the more energy efficient drying option. Voila!

4. What are you putting in the dryer?

Bedding, sports gear, baby clothes, woollens, t-shirts, delicates… the list goes on. What you are putting in the dryer is just as important as the dryer itself. Take winter, for example. It’s cold, wet and you want to keep wearing your favourite snuggly woollen jumper, but it needs a clean. But you can’t bear to wash it because it takes so long to dry, and you are too scared to tumble dry it.

Luckily, Beko tumble dryers have WoolProtect Handwash Safe Care registration for their wool program, so they can look after your handwash woollens with the respect they deserve. Beko WoolMark® Apparel Care means your precious machine-washable woollens will be looked after too. WoolMark® loves jumpers as much as you, so you know it’ll be in safe hands.

5. Dryer Convenience Features

They say you can’t have it all, but let’s face it, you want all the features, including convenience. Isn’t that why you get a tumble dryer? You can dry the laundry faster than hanging it on the clothes line. Now you ask, what else is going to save you time? How about less ironing? Beko’s Auto Anti-creasing function continues to tumble your clothes for up to 8 hours to keep them free of unwanted creases until you’re ready to unload the drier. Thank you, put away the iron - what joy!

You also don’t have to worry about clothes being damaged in the dryer. With Beko AquaWave®, there’s no need for concern. A specially designed drum pattern, with the help of paddles, gently moves your laundry in a wave-like drum action. So, your clothes move smoothly around in the drum, giving a better mixing effect while increasing drying performance.

Choosing a dryer doesn’t have to be a decision that makes you want to pull your hair out. Remember, these are the simple things to think about: what space you have to put the dryer and the size of your household, what you will be drying, the cost of running the dryer, what you’re putting in the dryer and what features you want. With our top 5 things to know before buying a dryer, you’ll be well on the way to making a decision.
