|I am interested in this item but want to check if it is the heat pump version or simple condenser unit as I have heard the heat pump units take a long time to dry. I have also heard that heat pump is not good for the the garage/utility room as it increases the drying time significantly due to the lower room temperatures. Is this true or a myth?||Thank you for your enquiry.
The WT46G491GB is a condenser style of tumble dryer.
Although, the condenser dryers allow you to have the appliance without a vent fixed to a wall, the heat pump dryers are on average 30% quicker than the condenser dryers.
This specific model cannot be used in a garage as is designed for use inside a house. It is unlikely that you will be able to find a model of tumble dryer that will be able to go into the garage as the pipework for tumble dryers holds water which will freeze in some temperatures throughout winter. This will mean the appliance's internal pipework will freeze up and potentially break. If you were to keep this in a utility room the minimum temperature of the room must be more than 5 degrees Celsius. The lower room temperature will affect the time in which the condenser dryer is able to dry the load due to the increased energy required to 'condense' the water in the condensing unit.
