    I know that electrolux newest condensing ventless dryer have a heatpump inside.
    It needs 50% less energy that a ordinary condensing ventless dryer like those you link to.

    Same here. The humidity is not a problem since my wood stove is in the same area as the Dryer. The lint is not much of a problem, we keep it clean so as to avoid any fire danger. We also use a non phosphate laundry detergent which produces far less lint to begin with. The clothing also lasts longer. In the spring, that dryer vent goes right back outside, too much humidity for my basement when the stove is not running.

    Huh! I just vent my electric dryer through a nylon knee high stocking. Seems to work really well!
