How to up-sell from a Condenser to a Heat Pump Tumble Dryer There has been a sharp rise in the demand for heat pump tumble dryers, growing 19.1% year on year and they now account for 11.5% of the total tumble dryer market. We highly recommend that retailers take advantage of this growth. Here’s a few pointers from our award-winning

Area Sales Managers and training team to convert consumers into buying a heat pump tumble dryer: • Heat pump tumble dryers provide a huge energy-saving benefit for households compared to a condenser model. A heat pump model can operate at an energy efficiency level of A+ and above, whereas the heating element in a B-rated condenser dryer can use twice as much energy.

• Calculate for the consumer how much money a heat pump dryer will save on their energy bills compared to a condenser dryer over a 5-year period. Use the annual energy usage figure from the energy label and an average unit cost of electricity to work this out, for example 13p.

• What’s more, heat pump models operate at a lower temperature, resulting in a drying cycle that is kinder to clothes.

Hero Blomberg product to stock:

8kg Heat Pump Tumble Dryer with FasterDry Technology (LTH3842W) Some

consumers are put off by a heat pump dryer because

of the longer programme times, but having been awarded a Which? Best Buy award for its high performance and impressive A+++ energy efficiency, the LTH3842W comes with a FasterDry feature. When activated it uses a small heater to shorten drying times by up to 24%, giving programme durations similar to those of a standard condenser dryer while still maintaining an A+ energy efficiency. There’s also a variety of sensor

programmes to choose from, including Jeans, Sport, Delicates and Bedding, a great selling point for consumers to know that whatever they need to dry, there is a programme to suit.

New Houses are Getting Smaller The average square footage in new single- family houses has been declining since 2015. In 2017, the average size of a new house was 2,631 square feet. That’s down from the 2015 peak of 2,687. The increase in washer dryer sales (+3.5% year on year*) may well be attributed to this decline, presenting a profitable opportunity for retailers.
