Greenbuild 2016 Product Spotlight: Whirlpool Ventless Dryer
- Oct 11, 2016
The leading appliance manufacturer debuted multiple new products at the Greenbuild conference, among them the True Ventless Heat Pump Dryer that is set to come out later this year or in early 2017. The dryer comes in a space-saving model ideal for multifamily communities where units are smaller, while still providing a full-size capacity. Its ventless design also doesn’t require a wall ouput, making it easier to install in more places. The appliance is also energy efficient, with built-in sensors that read incoming and outgoing air to avoid overdrying and a heat pump that converts moisture so there’s no need to vent externally. The ventless heat pump technology regenerates energy during the drying cycle for reduced energy consumption, also providing the flexibility of an optional heater for faster drying.
