The technology reduces energy consumption, using up to 73 percent less energy with the Eco Dry setting while also drying loads within normal dry times. Additionally, the Energy Star® Certified high-efficiency electric dryer easily installs in more places thanks to the ventless design, which means professionals are no longer restricted to a specialized closet or basement, since it doesn’t require a wall output.
