Event Description

Clothes dryers are a significant component of residential electricity use. Spurred by the emerging availability of heat pump clothes dryers in U.S. markets and their common use in Europe, a study examined the potential for adding these high-efficiency dryers to utility program portfolios. This webinar will present the results of field and consumer research conducted in Minnesota over the last several years. It will look at the energy and non-energy co-benefits of full-size hybrid heat pump clothes dryers in single family homes, as well as the potential application of ventless heat pump dryers in multifamily new construction.
