Freestanding vented tumble dryers are much more popular than built-in vented dryers. They’re hassle free and can be plugged in anywhere, as long as they’re within reach of an exterior wall or window.
Freestanding Vented Tumble Dryers
A lot of people like to keep their tumble dryer out of the way. Whether it’s in a utility room, a spare bedroom, or in the garage, it’s important to ensure you've got your tumble dryer in the right place as the hose needs to be in reach of an exterior wall.
Most vented dryers come with a hose to expel the hot air, although so can vent through the door like the Indesit IS31V. If you are using a vent hose, this needs to be attached to an opening in an outward facing wall or placed out of a window. Most hoses are between 1.5 - 2 meters long, so there is some room to play with. It’s worth noting that vent hoses need to be kept free of kinks, to prevent moisture from building up in the creases.
In terms of style and colour, you can have your pick of the bunch. There's a vented dryer for all tastes. Black models like the Hotpoint Aquarius+ TVF770K are popular, as well as sleek, silver dryers just like Beko's DRVS73S. To see all the different shapes and styles, take a look at our whole range.
