In the end, this is what I was really looking for.
I’m only willing to entertain the idea of standard gas or electric. No heat pumps or clothes racks or Mr. Fusion 3000 drying rays.
But it was interesting to learn about the heat-pump ones.
As long as the tangent was brought up and the thread is largely done…
Clothes lines suck in almost everyway possible. Labor intensive, crappy job of drying, occasional bird poo strikes, doesn’t work in the winter or the rain. Tough on windy days and I live in a windy bayside town. I do not want to use clothes racks in the house. It is 2022 not 1968 in NYC.
Any dryer needs to have the capacity to match the washer sitting next to it. Anything less is just too inefficient by far.
