Clothes DryersWhen it comes to clothes drying, there are two main styles of dryer to choose from. A condenser dryer is best for anyone short on space. They're built to function without ventilation, so they can be tucked away in cupboards and closets. Moisture inside the machine is condensed, so it either needs to run off to a drain, or be stored in a container that can be emptied manually. If you have more space, you can use a vented dryer, which requires more space around it so it can use hot air to push moisture out of the unit through its vents.
