Heat Pump Dryers are rated ENERGY STAR's most efficient dryers on the market and use one quarter or less energy than a typical electric resistance or gas dryer. They use heat pump technology to move heat rather than create it and with their ventless technology work well in apartments and multi-family units.

With with their longer cycles and small drum sizes, heat pump dryers may not be for everyone.
