Ease of use

Of course, you don’t want to compromise on this, and luckily you don’t have to! An inexpensive heat pump dryer has many options to increase the ease of use. These include a delayed start button, a clothes protector, an anti-crease phase, an anti-vibration function, a child lock and automatic shut-off. There are also brand-specific features where the heat pump dryer measures humidity or load. Which features are useful to you depends on your situation.

Building quality

The price often also depends on the build quality, which means that within this selection of heat pump dryers under €600 you will find more basic build quality. This is not a big problem, as even a basic heat pump dryer will function. The chance that it will last less long because of faster wear and tear is greater. This is because you compromise on the quality of materials. A cheap heat pump dryer with top and middle class build quality uses more durable materials. Therefore, the lifespan is generally longer.

Energy label

A favourable energy label generally costs a little more money. However, you will also find energy-efficient models among the cheap heat pump dryers. We call a heat pump dryer energy efficient when the energy label is at least A+++ and the build quality is top of the range or mid-range.

Drying programmes

There is no shortage of drying programmes in the cheap heat pump dryer. There are plenty of preferences to choose from within this segment as well. If you are looking for a specific drying programme, it is useful to select it in the webshop’s menu, otherwise you will be busy for a long time. Most heat pump dryers have the standard programs (short, cotton, synthetic, closet dry and ironing dry) but there are also heat pump dryers with programs for jeans, sportswear, silk, delicate fabrics and even lingerie and baby clothes.

Drying Preferences

The drying preference says something about the drying programmes. It can be selected separately. There are four drying preferences, two of which are available within the goedekoe heat pump dryers: reduced wear and anti-allergy program. Both options can be very handy. Fortunately, they don’t increase the price very much, so you can also choose this on a smaller budget!
