TW-2500VC

Discipline: Product

This is the industry’s first drum washer/dryer capable of drying clothes using the dehumidifier unit found in air-conditioners with a compressor. The device significantly conserves energy by eliminating the need for heater power and large volumes of coolant water. In addition to drying clothes, the device is capable of functioning as an air-conditioner to cool and dehumidify the air inside a room, a feature that increases comfort in bathrooms and changing rooms. Embodying universal design concepts, the model features a wide opening at a logical height for improved ergonomics and less lower-back strain.
