What is the difference between a heat pump and condenser dryer?

They both are designed to dry clothing but the main difference is how they generate the heat to do the job. A condenser which is what a large portion of customer are used to, uses a heater element to generate heat which then dries the clothing. This can be costly in comparison to a heat pump dryer. Using a lower temperature to dry the load, a heat pump tumble dryer offers better protection for your clothes. While it takes slightly longer to dry a load compared to a standard condenser dryer, it can help you significantly reduce your energy consumption. It takes an A++ Heat Pump dryer approximately five minutes extra to dry a 1kg load, but it uses less than half the energy of a B-rated condenser dryer.
