The ventless Whirlpool® HybridCare™ clothes dryer (WED99HED) with Hybrid Heat Pump technology has earned a 2014 Record Products award in the kitchen and bath category.
Record Products, an annual competition of Architectural Record, drew more than 500 entries this year, according to organizers. Winners in each category were selected by a panel of six judges made up of industry experts such as architects, designers and material and product specifiers.
The innovative Whirlpool® HybridCare™ clothes dryer with Hybrid Heat Pump technology is ventless, providing builders and designers of single family and multifamily housing the freedom to place dryers virtually anywhere in the home while also reducing energy consumption.
Compared to typical dryers that use large amounts of energy in the form of venting hot, moist air, the Whirlpool brand HybridCare™ dryer uses a refrigeration system to dry and recycle the same air. Based on estimated annual energy use, it is the appliance manufacturer’s most efficient clothes dryer sold in the United States.
