Portable Ventless Dryer for Clothes | Ventless Dryer for Apartments | Indoor Dryer Vent Kit - Electric Dryers

Updated on March 11, 2013

No Exterior Venting Needed~Portable Ventless Dryer for Clothes & Indoor Vent Conversion Kits

Ideal for small apartment living, a portable ventless dryer for clothes is a traditional dryer alternative. These dryers are small, plug into regular wall outlets, are on wheels for quick moving, and either require no vent or require indoor venting for lint only. They eliminate the need for a Laundromat and offer the convenience of at home laundry.

Alternatively, those who own an electric dryer and need to use it without a vent do have options. Indoor dryer vent kits can convert a traditional electric dryer to a ventless dryer using an adapter attachment. They are inexpensive, and do blow the hot air and moisture back into the room, but can offer a solution for some, even if just temporarily.

Types of Ventless Clothes Dryers with Indoor Venting

Small portable unvented dryers are available as spin or condensation dryers. Both can be small in size and portable, but they do work differently.

Portable Ventless Spin Dryer

A ventless spin dryer offers a very short cycle, usually less than 5 minutes, which removes excess moisture from clothes by high powered spinning. A portable spin dryer does not use hot air and does not fully dry clothes. Because of this, spin dryers require no outdoor or indoor venting. They remove a large amount of moisture to prepare garments for a drying rack. Spin dryers on wheels can be moved and stored out of the way, and with their small size, fit in places larger dryers cannot.

Portable Ventfree Dryer with Hot Air

A condensation dryer is a ventless electric dryer that utilizes hot air which it pulls from the room, much like a standard dryer. Whereas most would then vent the air outside, this machine utilizes a unique indoor venting system. The dryer cools the hot air, and then recycles it back through. The hot air is not released into the air, nor is the moisture. An indoor lint trap vent is required.

Portable ventless dryers are perfect for apartments and small spaces. Some can be stored in a closet when not in use. Larger units dry the clothing with the use of hot air, but no need for exterior venting.

Small unvented dryers do take longer to dry clothes than traditional electric dryers, so it is important to take that into consideration. But having access to laundry facilities right at home, can make them very worth while.

Portable Ventfree Apartment Dryers

Small ventless dryers for clothes are ideal in the situations where there is no vent and laundry is piling up. Not everyone is comfortable running to the Laundromat, and even a smaller machine is appreciated for washing the clothing at home.

Although they make take longer to wash a full load of laundry, ventfree drying machines have the advantages of providing laundry services for home use, when taking the laundry out of the house is just not practical. We can all appreciate the use of a washer and dryer at home, and waiting for washing and drying cycles to complete can be overwhelming.

Portable ventless dryers are practical for many apartments, condos, and ventfree units where convenience is still a priority. Even though these units are small and not ideal for large families, they work for small families and work well for many people.

      I have never heard of a ventless dryer, this is really interesting. I wish I had one. I didn't think it was possible to have a drier without a vent, this would be so useful. Thanks for sharing this innovation. Voted up.
