A note on average usage

In order to calculate energy costs for tumble dryers we assume an average use of 5 times a week. Remember that these costs are only indicative and will vary according to your actual usage. More

Energy costs for tumble dryers are based on a full load using the standard cotton cupboard dry program. We assume that the load has been washed using a spin cycle of 1000 rpm leaving a moisture content of 60%. We use this moisture level as a reference because it is the most consistent information provided by manufacturers. If your washing machine has a spin cycle of over 1000 rpm your costs will be lower.
