There's nothing worse than a dryer that doesn't get the job done, or doesn't get the job done right. After all, what's the point of having a dryer if you're clothes are not dry when you're done? In this article we're going to take a look at efficient dryers and where you can find them.
Based on the opinions we've gathered from people on the internet, we've found that efficient dryers are not power hogs. They are not only efficient in getting the job done, they are also efficient when using energy. The most efficient dryers are have a capacity of over 7.2 cubic feet, and you'll find them in the higher price brackets at around $1200 (although dryers in the medium price range of about $630-$900 are not trailing that far behind).
From the information we've gathered we see that you get what you pay for when it comes to efficiency. If you want a dryer that does an excellent job, you'll want to spend a little more. That isn't to say that lower priced dryers are terrible, but when it comes to efficiency, there's no two ways about it. It's either top shelf or bust.
Would we recommend paying more for the most efficient dryers? Yes. At the same time, it wouldn't be the end of the world if you wanted to save money. After all, at the $500 price point you do not get a machine that is abysmally worse. Based on the opinions we've gathered, we see that efficiency goes up with price. We also see that higher capacity machines are more efficient. This is where you have to balance out the price and efficiency ratio and see what works for you.
