One of the most sought-after household gadgets of 2022, heated dryers can also help you save on your energy bills.
As the cost of living crisis continues to worry families across the UK, we’ve looked at the best ways to save money on your home appliances as part of our Your Money Matters campaign.
Similar to traditional drying racks, the bars heat and dry your clothes when plugged into your mains electricity supply.
The cost of running a heated dryer can depend on how powerful it is, and you can even get covers to keep the heat in and dry your clothes faster.
How to lower your energy bills
Generally, the higher the wattage, the more the dryer will cost you to run, so if you invest in a dryer that uses less than 2,500 watts (which is the average for a standard dryer), you’ll save the money.
The price will also vary depending on your provider and how often you use it of course.
You can also check with your energy supplier what your unit price for electricity is and you will also be able to see this on your energy bill.
