During our discussions with The Breakfast Show on BBC Radio Manchester the cost of using tumble dryers came up. We’ve avoided getting one, so I wasn’t sure of the exact cost of using them, so I did a bit of research:

  • There is a significant variation in energy efficiency between diffrent models.
  • An A-rated tumble dryer uses about a third of the energy of the typical C-Rated dryer.
  • A C-Rated tumble dryer uses about 4kWh for a load.
  • A C-Rated dryer will cost you around £113 a year to run

So there it is: 4kWh and £113 a year to run. What better reason do you need to buy a Rotaire Dryline for only £30? That’s why we fitted ours – read about it here.
