Solar friendly and for no ventilated rooms. Other than that it's a waste of money
It's solar friendly as it uses an average of 400W of power. If you have ventilation in the room and no solar power, this dryer is a waste of money. I used to have a $400 Simpson dryer and I regret that I gave it away. This dryer uses around 400W of power and a program runs for 2.5 hours. For one program it uses 400 x 2.5= 1KW. This is real. The Simpson has 2100W heating element and I can dry the same amount of clothes in 20min or 0.33hours 2100 x 0.33 = 0.693KW. The Simpson uses less power and with the difference in price you spend to buy the ...LG dryer you could pay electricity for $1400 / $0.4KW/h / 2100W = 1660 hours of drying on a Simpson. You can also have 20min noise with the Simpson instead of 2.5hour noise of the LG dryer which is annoying. The LG is not quiet at all. The spinning drum started making noise after 8 months of operation. Do your math. It's not an opinion or marketing.... It's also a more complex machine and more things can go wrong. It spins your clothes for 2.5 hours continuously without reversing. More clothes wearing than Simpson "like" dryer.
