In Autumn Miele will present some new products characterized, among many other features, by a signiticant level of eco-sustainability. The new tumble dryers are an exemple of this, and will combines clever features offering greater user convenience and gentler fabric care. The particularly climate-friendly flagship model of the Miele’s range exceeds the threshold for the current top A+++ energy efficiency rating by 10%.
According to the company, the GreenPerformance model is not only characterised by maximum energy efficiency at an attractive price, but also stands for resource-saving use of materials. A significant contribution to this is made by the floor module, which was developed from scratch and whose plastic is enriched with nitrogen in an innovative manufacturing process. This saves 30 percent of material – while at the same time improving stability. In addition, the climate-friendly refrigerant R290 is used. Both the new base module and R290 are also used in almost all Miele dryer models.
Added convenience is promised by the DryCare 40 option: all items of clothing washable at 40°C can be tumble-dried without the least worry – even if textiles are not approved for machine drying according to the wash-care label. This is facilitated by reducing the air temperature during the drying process to such a degree that delicate fabrics are dried so gently that damage can reliably be ruled out. DryCare 40 can be selected in a whole series of programmes such as Cottons, Minimum Iron and Shirts. This way, fabrics are placed under the least possible strain. Garments remain soft, retain their shape better and, all in all, last longer.
Moreover, the new HygieneDry setting based on the ‘Extra drying’ function reliably eliminates 99.99% of all bacteria thanks to longer temperature holding times. This is independently endorsed by the Rhein-Waal technical university which has issued HygieneDry with a certificate confirming top-class purity and dependability.
