I prefer to dry my clothes on washing line like @mj3_14 and I think that all housing should plan for this!! However, at work (a small hotel) we have chosen a heat-pump one to dry the towels. Yes it takes longer and it was much more expensive to buy, but it uses SO MUCH less electricity and the laundry is no longer damp when we use it.

10 minutes in my Miele dryer, then outside to finish but I do live in a very dry part of the country. Since buying the Miele, I’ve never used the iron. Love it!

I use my vented drier on tumble only with no heat. It removes the wrinkles from washing cycle and allows them to line dry quicker and smoothly, so little ironing.
